When in a fish restaurant, you order fish. This menu features things other than fish, but we ordered the fish basket, which came with 5 pieces of fish, a huge amount of French fries, and coke slaw. If you aren’t starving, this would be good...More

The food here is solid pub fare. The fish basket was really good and the fries are done crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. As a local institution....they are reliably a good meal.

This is one of those places it is as much about the environment as the food. The food was good and my wife's crab cakes were excellent. Great staff and service as well.

We've eaten at JB's several times. It is your classic Fish Camp fare. You are paying for the beautiful location and dolphin and bird siting place and just okay food. Lots of tourists. Locals look elsewhere for their seafood and fish. The "no see um"...More

Went for dinner. Ordered fried calamari. the most oil soaked that I have had in a long time. Flounder was skinny and the batter was twice as thick. Great fries and slush puppies. But this is a fish place. Shrimps were over fried and soaked.

Count on fried food to be oily. The taste buds are confused by what you're putting in your mouth, I would warn any seeing impaired person to eat else where. However, on friday night there is live music and it is a fun filled atmosphere,...More
