JB’s menu is huge, featuring every kind of Florida seafood, including rock shrimp (when available), pompano, and a wonderful “crabulous sandwich” filled with nothing but crabmeat dabbed with mayonnaise. Blue crabs are a specialty, available as peppery as you like by the dozen. Steamed, broiled, fried, blackened, stuffed, or as the basis of grand gourmet scampis and imperials: you can have just about anything that swims just about any which way.

There is indoor dining, but the choice seats are outside on a broad deck by the water where private and commercial fishing boats come and go and where the everpresent sunshine seems to muffle even the high-spirited chatter of JB’s raucous clientele.

What to Eat
JB’s Fish Camp, Crabulous Sandwich
Crabulous Sandwich
Must-Try
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.
JB’s Fish Camp, Steamed Spiced Shrimp
Steamed Spiced Shrimp
Must-Try
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).
