This local seafood restaurant prides itself on serving the freshest seafood around. The restaurant has a commitment to using sustainable ingredients so that they will be around for many years. There are many great meals to experience, most of them seafood, but there are some menu items for vegetarians and those who are allergic or do not like/want seafood. When you come to J.B’s Fish Camp, you must try the Famous Crab Cakes. This is one of the items that put this restaurant on the map. Made of fresh jumbo lump crab and special seasonings, it is perfect as an appetizer, sandwich, or dinner entree. There are many other ways that you can sample crab on the menu: Crab Stuffed Mushrooms, Crab Balls, a Steamed Vegetable appetizer you can add crab, the Crabulous Sandwich with chilled jumbo lump crabmeat, Crab Stuffed Flounder, and you can get Soft Shell Crab as an appetizer, a sandwich and a platter. Fish is always fresh, and you can take your pick of Grouper, Mahi Mahi, and the Fish of the Day, either blackened, broiled, fried, or cajun fried. You can get the fish as a fish sandwich or as a platter. And do not forget the steamed and raw seafood items like fresh oysters on the half shell, peel and eat shrimp served hot or chilled.

The drinks are just as good as the food and complement your meal perfectly. There is a large selection of bottled domestic, imported and craft beers. There are also over 10 draft beers on tap, including NSB Shark Attack IPA, a local beer. There is also a selection of red and white wines you can order by the glass or get a bottle for the table. Two full bars, one inside and one outside, serve up classic and specialty cocktails. Try two J.B.’s cocktails: J.B.’s Rum Runner, either on the rocks or frozen, and J.B.’s Bloody Mary. Or try the many specialty cocktails like the Honey Palmer, the Island Living and the Gator Punch. All of these drinks are made by our friendly bar staff.

J.B.’s Fish Camp has a very laid-back atmosphere. You can dock your boat at one of the slips. It used to be just a tiny shack, and while it is much bigger now, they try to give the feel of the shack. Indoors, it is lively, while outside, it is more relaxing. You can sit and eat outdoors and watch nature pass you by. You might even see dolphins and manatees. Every weekend, there is live music to entertain its guests. The restaurant is for everyone. It is very family-orientated. The founder, JB, said that children are always welcome. They are our future.

While at J.B.’s, you can rent a kayak or paddleboard. Take a guided fishing kayak tour or head out on your own, enjoying the tranquility of the Indian River Lagoon. Before you leave, stop at our merchandise store to grab some memorability.

    Everything was fine except for the stacking of the food baskets on top of one another. We all enjoyed our meals and the view. The male delivering the meals should use a tray. I was in the restaurant industry for years.

    Had a 5 🌟 family lunch experience here recently, during Spring Break. We were seated swiftly, and the service was awesome. Our friendly server made great suggestions and brought us swamp juice sauce to sample. Food was excellent and kids ate well. Worth the trip if you are in NSB. Also, it's right on the water, and you can rent kayaks and paddle boards.

    A fun place to grab a bite! We had the blackened alligator and the peel-n-eat jumbo shrimp. The "jungle juice" dipping sauce for the shrimp was superb, and oddly enough so was the corn! We actually got a second order of the corn, don't skip it.

    Their back! Had an excellent dinner. Ate inside but coukd have waited a bit longer for an outside table. The atmosphere is excellent, especially outside with the sun setting and a very good live music. Could have sat along the water all evening.

    The Rock Cakes are delicious as is the Key Lime Pie. Everything else was fantastic too, especially the blackened Mahi. Substitute fried Mahi on the Captains Platter was exceptional. Side salad was surprisingly good, particularly with the Ranch dressing. We loved the Kelly's Hot Sauce, made at the bar. Service was quick and friendly. Very family-friendly with a place for young kids to play outside and easily viewable through the window in the back.
