“Florida seafood classic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

After a hot day on the beach....no better Florida experience than ending the day at JB's...
Fresh seafood and drinks....just go hand and hand with a day at the beach.
This authentic restaurant sits on the water and offers locals and tourists an authentic Florida casual seafood meal...economical and satisfying !

“Old Florida”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

JB's provides a taste of old Florida in both its ambience (picnic tables, paper towels instead of napkins) and its food (lots of fried seafood, with attitude, as their sign says). My wife and I both had the fried soft shell crab sandwich on our visit, and we were both very pleased. The size of the crabs was good, and they were very meaty and tasty. Another member of our party had the mahi sandwich and was very pleased with that. We had one non-seafood eater, and he enjoyed the cheeseburger, which looked quite good as well. It was a busy day, but we were able to be seated outside under an umbrella, and service was polite and as speedy as possible given the large crowd. There were quite a few boats tied up at their dock, evidence of the popularity of JB's with the local crowd. It is well worth a trip.

“Try the Turtle Mound”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

Our eleven year old loves seafood, especially crab. The Turtle Mound is a collection of JB's best:
steamed crab, oysters, shrimp and clams. He devoured every last bit. Even shucked his own oysters. The key lime pie is like ice cream. Delicious. Spend time on the dock. We saw redfish and manatee. Read the bathroom walls. Adam was a great waiter.

“Just like I remembered...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

We returned to NSB after a 6 year hiatus. One of are 'must eat' places is JBs. We have been going there for many years, back when they were allowed to run fresh water from a hose into the river and you were almost guaranteed to see a manatee. I'm happy to report the seafood is still good as is the atmosphere. I read some negative reviews but we did not experience anything negative. Wait staff, food, and views are all still very good. We sat outside and even had a visit from a manatee!
Tip - get there early and avoid the wait (we arrived at 530 and our party of 8 was seated right away)

“Seafood and Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

We love JB's. It's right on the inter coastal... boat docks and gazebo on the water, kayak rentals, stage with live music, seating indoor and out. It's an eclectic spot of bumper stickers, shirts, stuffed animals... Full liquor bar, good food, good view... Awesome for sunset! Nice crowd for family fun.
