"Went to JB's Fish Camp yesterday (Aug 11 2013), a hot summer day in Florida. So we decided to eat inside with the nice AC. We were seated in a noisy area and requested a seat at the back where it was quieter. The hostess was very accomodating. Our seats were perfect! ..."   [Read More]

A crabulous sandwich: crabmeat dabbed with mayonnaise and spice. Nothing more, nothing less. The bread seems like something of an afterthought. I preferred eating it with a fork. At $9, it's one of the less expensive items on JB's menu. A must for crab-lovers.

When you order spiced steamed shrimp, you can ask for them hot or cold, highly-spiced or mild. These are cool (temperature) and hot (pepper).

An almost failsafe rule for identifying a good Roadfood restaurant is that it offers a roll of paper towels instead of a napkin. On JB's deck, the towels make especially good sense. Sea breezes would blow away all but the heaviest linen.

JB's seafood is deluxe. Its attitude and ambience are down-to-earth.

In true fish-camp tradition, JB's is more than just a place to come eat. Here is where you buy bait if you plan to go fishing.
