JB's on the Beach
Deerfield Beach, FL 33441
New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
This restaurant is the one to set up your photo at in February and mail it as a postcard to all your friends stuck in snow up North. Directly on the beach, the expansive multilevel interior offers sea views at every table, and with seating on the open-air patio, you're at the sand's edge. It's big enough that a full Hobiecat hangs from the ceiling in full sail, yet crowds fill it inside and out, especially on weekends. Many are tourists or snowbirds; a younger crowd comes late and on weekends for drinks and the live bands -- or to watch volleyballers and surfers play. Lobster pizza, chili crab cakes, and chicken satays are among standout appetizers. Favorite fishes -- mahi, salmon, tuna -- are wood-grilled with a selection of sauces. A fair selection of steaks, fillets, and ribs as well as surf-and-turf combos and a burger are there for landlubbers. Seek out the pan roasts and "mariscos" -- seafood stews - where the chef gets to stretch his creativity. Drinks are of note, but expect to drop some bucks -- everybody pays for oceanfront property.
Tips from foursquare
Nice band. Park across the street better than valet
Lettuce wraps so good, you'll eat them by the spoonful.
Love the firecracker scallops. Excellent happy hour $5 bar menu
Grab a seat at the outdoor bar if you can. Good Key West type music on Saturdays.
Great place if you are not afraid of crowds. Good live music on the ocean, but be prepared to wait to be seated. Grab a spot at the bar if you are in a rush.
