The crab cake fell flat. The seasoning in it was so strong that it was impossible to taste the crab.

First time ever the food was horrible . The Waite staff did ask if there was anything they could get me to replace the meals but I just paid for it and left. I’m hoping there was just a new cook. I have always enjoyed my visits this was the only disappointment .

Gemma, my name is Eric Freitag & I'm the General Manager of this JBD's. I would love the opportunity to speak with you about this visit because, like you said, this is definitely not the norm when it comes to a meal at JBD's. If you would please call me at 215-702-8119 or send your contact information to jbdawsons@yahoo. Looking forward to speaking with you. Sincerely, Eric.

The food was very good, but we were cold. We ate outside and the heaters were not working. Apparently they were broken as a serviceman was working on one of them.
We'll eat there again -- IF the heaters are working!

We are very sorry to hear about your recent experience. We completely understand your frustration & we are still waiting for the 2nd heater to be fixed. Now that the weather is nicer, hopefully we won't have any issues going forward. Thanks again & we look forward to serving you again soon.

We weren't from the area and wanted to try something different and that wasn't a chain restaurant. We were very pleased with everything. The atmosphere was nice the service was good and the food was good what more could you ask for. A little pricier than your chain restaurants but well worth it. We had the crab alfredo pasto and the spinach reggiano dip appetizer. We really enjoyed ourselves and our food.

Each and everytime we go to this wonderful restaurant, we are treated well, seated fast and served fast. Staff is friendly and professional at the same time and the food is delicious. Steaks are awesome and tender and sandwiches are full of meat and more meat. That is why we continue to be repeat customers.............

Thanks for the wonderful review. In regards to the bread, I'm very sorry to hear about that. Not sure what time of the day you go, but if you go at lunch it is upon request up until 4pm. After that, they should be asking you. Please don't hesitate to let a manager know if this doesn't happen next time you come out. Thanks again for your support.

This restaurant is the best. The service is great, prices are reasonable and food is awesome. I love that you can ask anyone for something and don’t have to just ask your own waiter or waitress. Wish all restaurants would do this. I also love that they have great kids meals and kids eat free on Sunday. Great place for all ages.

This was my first time dining here. The food and service was great. I reviewed the menu prior to my visit. There were so many good choices. The one thing I knew for certain I wanted to try was the lobster bisque, and it did not disappoint. It was perfect! I will definitely be back. Bon Appetit!

The only big issue we experienced was even though we had a reservation and were on time(a few minutes early) we had to wait longer because our table was ready but a bunch of other guests were seated before us. Otherwise, our waitress was very friendly and the rest of the staff was helpful if we needed refills. The food was delicious and we were stuffed!

This place has the best lobster bisque in the world. Real lobster! Everything was fresh and masterfully prepared. My wife was not pleased with the Long Island Iced Tea (weak), but in my opinion, this place is a gem. A little pricey, but I say it's worth it for a romantic setting with extraordinary food.

I do not understand why it is so hard to get into this restaurant. I live two minutes from there and this was I think my fourth time there as I keep wanting to give it another chance. That being said my wife and I went on Monday night I got a filet mignon with crab and a sauce and my wife got ribs as they are noted for their ribs. She said her ribs were good but not as good as sweet Lucy’s barbecue. My meal came out cold and had to be sent back even though the restaurant was not crowded. It took about 10 minutes to make me another meal while my wife was eating hers. The waitress and manager came over and apologized but there was no offer of a free drink or desert. My 2nd meal was fine but I would not rush back even though we live only 2 minutes away.

As an update to this review I was contacted by the manager, Rachael Geary the day after this review posted. She apologized for the problems and requested that my wife and I return to the restaurant when available as her guest. We went on 02/26/21 as Rachael had made a reservation for us. Our waitress was also named Rachael and was exceptional. Rachael Geary came out to meet us and she was very gracious. We had a wonderful meal compliments of Ms. Geary. That being said we will be returning to this restaurant as it is obvious that the management cares about its customers and wants to make them happy. It is apparent that Rachael Geary is a credit to this organization.

This was our second time for my wife and once again we were completely satisfied. I had the Chicken Florentine Pasta and my wife had the grilled salmon with Jasmine rice and steamed broccoli. We also had the cheesesteak egg rolls for an appetizer which were amazing. Make sure you get the twisted sauce (you can thank me later)
