JWB Prime Steak and Seafood, one of the eight on site restaurants at the Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort has quickly become known as the “crown jewel” since its opening on December 28, 2015. The restaurant has been refining the menu for the past few months, but one constant is that they serve the finest quality of prime steak and spear caught fish around. The spear caught fish program is a unique program that is sustainable and offers the freshest fish that you’ll find in the area. The fish changes daily and guests are also notified of the name of the local fisherman who brought in the daily catch.
The upscale restaurant combines fine dining with a twist of Buffett’s signature laid back attitude. This translates to the best of both worlds and equals a dining experience you won’t want to miss. No dress code required, come in from off the beach or get dressed up for a night out and receive the same impeccable service. The open floor plan showcases modern décor with earthy tones of wood and brick. These blended elements create a refined, but comfortable ambiance.
Drink in your hand, check. Nice ambiance, check. Aside from all of the other exceptional elements that make up JWB, the food is the most impressive part of the experience.
