We stopped here for lunch on a motorcycle ride. The restaurant was not busy, we were seated immediately. JB Boondocks is clean and comfortable with a view of Lake Harris. You can tell it has been added onto as business demands. It is located on the water with dock space available for those who come by boat. Our waitress was... More

We were a mid-sized (10) group of friends out for our monthly lunch. The waitstaff was very helpful and managed the group orders quite well with no attitude about our separate checks. The soup was good. The burgers and crab cakes were also popular. It's a fun place to go. Off the beaten path and pretty views of the lake.

Located directly on Little Lake Harris, a great place to see herons, anhingas, and egrets. The staff is friendly and helpful. However, the food is lacking in quality and pricing. The 6 shrimp dinner cost $16. Yes, the shrimp may be larger than some, but were tough to bite from being frozen too long. Very good french fries. The Friday... More

Would give 3.5 if I could. Setting is a 5. Took my mom here for a birthday meal on a recent Sunday afternoon. Really nice lakeside location. All the available slips had a boat in them; diners arriving by water. Sit so you can take in the view. A few outdoor seats available. Nothing fancy on the inside; relaxed, casual... More

We have eaten at JB Boondocks for dinner, but mostly have enjoyed the lunches. The fish is always done to perfection and if you like soup, you will enjoy the chowders. There is a varied menu and I have never heard a complaint from any of our friends. The service is great. Very friendly. It is nice right on the... More
