Better than most Atlantis restaurants

Best service we had during our week stay at Atlantis. Waitress was very attentive, came by several times.... not what we had been experiencing up to this point. Food was okay but not great. Brisket was full of fat but tasty. BBQ shrimp was less BBQ and more BBQ sauce. Cole slaw tasted... read more

If you want an easy meal to share, order their salad. It has all the different BBQ meats and must be shared by two to four people

We finished a long day at Paradise Island with a meal at Virgil's. We were seated quickly at a nice table with a view of the Stingray Pool. The waiter took our order quickly (pulled pork, greens and mac and cheese.) I have seen the complaints about the service and I believe I know why. A food runner brought our... More

This restaurant is located at the Atlantis and is on a lower floor than the lobby which allows you to see the sting rays. They have "the best" Hush Puppies with a maple butter and its extremely delicious as well as the best fried chicken. Its a must on your trip.

My family and I came across Virgil's after a long day at the beach and loved that it was a nice sit down restaurant with a casual dress code. My husband and I were traveling with our 2 year old son and loved that the staff was very pleasant and made sure we were assisted right away when they noticed... More

Virgil's is a wonderful place to visit and bring the family. Very clean, fresh and worth the money for the visit. It is a place you need to stop by and visit. Food is great for the family. Watch what you order, it is very large portions and enough to feed two or three people.

If you are used to really good BBQ you will not be impressed. We found Virgil's online and the reviews sounded promising. We had the pulled pork and pork was very salty and not good. As a group we probably only ate half of the dish. We also had some side dishes, Mac & Cheese and Baked Beans and they... More
