Golf Then Food

JB Boondock’s Bar n Grill

JB Boondocks Bar n Grill in Howey in the Hills, Florida, has been a local favorite since it opened its doors. The restaurant has undergone a few changes in the years since its inception, but it remains true to its original vision of providing good food and good times for all who enter its doors.

The restaurant is known for its down-home cooking and its relaxed atmosphere. Golfers often stop after playing golf at Mission Inn to enjoy a meal and watch the game on one of the many TVs. Who isn’t hungry after playing 18-holes at the challenging courses at Mission Inn? It’s why one of our mottos is “golf then food.”

It’s Tradition

When you are in town, you need to keep the tradition going, play golf, and head just two miles down the road from Mission Inn to JB Boondock’s Bar n Grill. They are located right on Little Lake Harris, where you can watch alligators swimming in the lake while you enjoy a post-golf meal.

If driving isn’t your thing, you can boat to JB Boondock’s Bar n Grill. They have twenty boat slips. You can even land your seaplane in Little Lake Harris and park in one of their slips. And if you need a spot to lay your head for a bit, they have one-bedroom efficiencies available for rent.

Fish Camp Roots

Before it was JB Boondocks Bar and Grill, the location used to be a fish camp. And for those unfamiliar with local vernacular, a fish camp is a place where you can order piles of fried catfish and hushpuppies, shrimp and flounder, french fries, and cole slaw. A place to get all the good, hearty, southern comfort food. Yum!

Their menu still lives up to their fish camp roots and features all of the classics, from burgers and fries to shrimp n grits. They have a few interesting (and tasty) items you don’t find on many menus like Swamp Bites. That’s strips of gater tail lightly battered and fried. And, of course, no visit to JB Boondocks is complete without trying one of their signature cocktails.

Welcomed Like Family

The history of JB Boondocks is one of family, friends, and good times. It’s a place where people can come to relax, have a good meal, and enjoy each other’s company. And that’s something that we can all raise a glass to.  

The restaurant is still family-owned and operated. And you will become a part of that family as soon as you walk in the door. They may even put you to work as a newfound family member (kidding). It’s one of the reasons the restaurant has become a favorite gathering place for locals and visitors alike.
