The covered patio at JBs on the Beach stays busy most days, even when it rains. The view during daylight is fabulous. It’s the place to be for live music, and it lies just steps away from the sand. JBs claims one of the few beachfront dining addresses in Broward County.

View aside, the food here is consistently good – breakfast brunch during weekends, lunch or dinner. I’ve never had a bad meal including lobster.  Salads and fresh seafood headline the menu but JBs also serves up some tasty ribs, steaks, chicken, burgers and plenty-for-a-meal appetizers.

JBs also features a great lineup of live music – perhaps some of the best anywhere on the beach – which makes this a great place to relax on weekend days and a spot to crank it up at night (check their website for lineup and full schedule).

If  summer humidity discourages some from sitting on the patio, there’s plenty of room inside, including a large bar, where the view is much the same. When locals have out-of-town-visitors, many head for JBs for a taste and view of Florida; it’s a good one. 

The tab for parking is $5. Public parking is available nearby but tough to get on weekends. There is lots of traffic during the season along Deerfield Beach so patience is a plus. The fishing pier, a short walk from JBs, was recently revamped (signage now says “Deerfield International Pier”), making the beach here one of the most pleasant in the county. Stroll after dining.  A visit to JBs is like taking a vacation day ...
