This was our first sit down meal in the Bahamas and lets just say we won't be back. we understand that were in the Bahamas and that we shouldn't expect much when were getting BBQ, but with the pricing you have no choice to expect something. By serving family style entree exclusively, you can choose only one entree instead of... More

My wife and I loved the NYC location and were excited to visit here on our Bahamas vacation. This restaurant is NOT meant for couples. By serving family style entree exclusively, you can choose only one entree instead of a combination of share. Our ribs were almost $60 and sides $15-25 each which made this meal cost as much as...

My husband and I found this restaurant on the last day of our trip. I'm not overly crazy about BBQ food, which is the main theme. Most of the menu options feed 3-4 people as it is family style, but we opted for the single serving menu. The Texas brisket and pulled Carolina pork are highly recommended! Our wait staff... More

Our family of four went for an early dinner (5:30). We tried getting in once without reservations, and although there were plenty of empty tables they wouldn't take us since we didn't have a reservation... It was strange and awkward. We then made a reservation for the next night and got right in. We had the cornbread to start and... More

I had the pleasure of visiting this restaurant for a family dinner on Mother's Day. We had a great time, great food and great visit. The food came out so fast that we were shocked. It was a great meal and the portions were enough to share. I will definitely be back for another visit and will recommend this place.... More

We have been to Virgil's a number of times since it opened in Atlantis. The BBQ is average. If you are a true fan of barbecue, your expectations will not be met. However, the food is very good. We enjoy sitting at the bar enjoying a "cocktail" and an order of train wreck fries. If you are a beer lover,... More

Great service and burgers! It is not open every night so plan your visit. A little pricey but worth it.

Family style barbeque type food. Expensive as is all food in atlantis but has some good options. Mac & Cheese, ceasar salad, chicken wings in larger portions for sharing and all good quality.
