The portion sizes are huge! The food is pretty good as well. Also they will let you are half orders of meat if you are just buying food for two people. The watermelon margarita is AMAZING.

Oh my goodness, I woud've never thought that their BBQ could be so good! The have some good beer on draft too. Their "side of veggies" is like a platter of veggie goodness cooked perfectly! Everything was delicious- their fried chicken was a hit with the kids.

Eating at one of the Atlantis restaurants can be expensive. However, if you pick one of the family style restaurants like Virgil's BBQ, then you've found a good value. First off, the taste and quality is outstanding. Everyone in the family was greatly impressed with the quality, quantity, and presentation. As a family style restaurant, the portions are huge. For...

This is a great BBQ restraunt. The brisket is some of the best I have ever eaten. Dinner is served family style and can be expensive. Lunch is served to order and you can save almost $100 eating here for lunch instead of dinner. The ice cream cookie for desert is the best tasting deal on the island. $8 and... More

I have to start with the portion sizes. Although they warn you, they need to warn you even more. With the meal plan we were entitled to 3 entrees, 3 sides, 3 appetizers, and 3 desserts. We only got 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, 3 sides and 1 dessert for the 3 adults in our group. The waitress said we were... More

We enjoyed the food at Virgil's BBQ - they do warn you how big the portions are in fairness but we couldn't believe it when the food came out. Everyone was helpful and friendly, cocktails were great - the only comment I would have is that we were only a table of 3 which meant due to the portion sizes... More

Virgil's was a great choice for our family. The portions are family sized, so there were left overs, and their biscuits can put Popeye's to shame, which is pretty hard to do.

The food was all good but the service was outstanding! All orders come family style so don't let your eyes do the ordering for you. Large large proportions. Each individual order will serve 3-4 adults easy.

The thing I liked most are the very friendly and accommodating staff. We were there late and they were 20 mins to closing but they still accommodated us. We just wanted to get the draft beers and "trash" riblets from the wine and dine package, and they gave us the option of just having it to go. Such great service,... More

Virgil's is very average and definitely not worth the money.. I ate here with my parents and my boyfriend during our stay at Atlantis. When we ate here we ordered a Caesar Salad, Popcorn Shrimp and the BBQ Chicken. First of all the service was very very slow and it took forever for them to get our food out. When... More
