Yelper Anthony K., who reviewed it on Feb. 5, wrote, "No big plus, no big minus. This is a typical juice bar in a typical gym. I do like how unlike a normal juice bar they have a limited breakfast and lunch option."
Diane K. noted, "Nice selection of juices, and even hot foods [as well as] bagels, oats, yogurt, and egg sandwiches for breakfast. Hhot sandwiches and wraps for lunch and light dinner and many kinds of supplements."

Yelper Irene S., who reviewed B.B. Lemon on Jan. 28, wrote, "We ordered the $10 burger and $4 onion rings. It was a good sized patty and my friend thought it was the best he's had. Clearly the meat came from across the street and was cooked as he desired. I had the pork schnitzel, which was huge, but I ate every bite."
Karen M. noted, "This place exudes character, from the seasoned popcorn to start, the "sawlt" and "peppa" shakers, and the Lemonhead sour candies that come with your bill. The blue crab beignets were a unique treat, and the French onion soup was delicious and authentic."
B.B. Lemon is open from 11 a.m.–midnight on Monday-Wednesday, 11 a.m.–2 a.m. on Thursday-Saturday, and 11 a.m.–10 p.m. on Sunday.
