The food and service at Virgil's was great. Beautiful set tingsurrounding the fish pools. The only thing I think they should change is the size of the portions. At first they look very costly but some of the plates can easily feed 6-8. They should have better options for 2-4 people and there would be less waste.

As a foodie for a good beef brisket, we did not expect it to be perfectly BBQ and awesome flavors. Apparently they can be proud of this dish. We highly recommend this place to brisket foodies.

Virgil's was the perfect 1st night at Atlantis, great food, huge portions and wonderful service! Quickly seated during their busiest times, kids lived the family sized portions! Parents loved the adult beverages!

We like BBQ so thought we'd give this place a try. Sat down and was told " family style, no sandwiches, except at the bar. Fine with us. Nice bar area except no seats with backs on them. More people in bar area than restaurant area. Order a pulled pork sandwich and 1/2 slab of ribs. I'm use to babybacks... More

My husband and I knew that the food was served family style, and there would be more than enough for two of us, so we asked the waiter for help. He suggested that we order one entree and one side. He rcommended the brisket over the fries chicken and the side of vegetables. We ordered iced tea to drink, and... More

144 for dinner for two. App, salad, and one side. Two drinks . Portions are ridiculous large, enough for 4. Food was over salted.

Ate here for our first meal at Atlantis. Family style menu for dinner and the portions were huge. We definitely over ordered. We had the chicken, ribs and brisket. All items were really good. Expected a little more flavor from the sauces, but I think they "tourist" the spice down to cater to the masses a bit. The vegetable platter... More

The potions are huge!!! For four people we only had to order one plate of ribs and a few sides. The ribs were good, the bbq sause was very tangy and sweet. The servers were friendly. A must for a family on a buget
