We're an extended family staying at Atlantis. 13 of us ages 8 to 65+. We're on the meal plan which... meant so, so much food at Virgil's. We had really good service and he tried to warn us about portion size. We really liked: Hush puppies were excellent especially with maple butter. Kids crushed the mac n cheese. Crab cakes... More

We dined at Virgil's our last evening at Atlantis. Traveling from the deep South, I would say we know a thing or two about our BBQ. My husband ordered the Brisket and to put it nicely it was just a dry hunk of meat with less than par bbq sauce sopping all over it. The mac & cheese and fries... More

Being from Texas it is hard for me to rate the bbq good-It's was just okay. Although it is family style, my boys wanted pulled pork sandwiches off the bar menu. I must say, they were pretty tasty. Service was good, a very affordable meal for Atlantis. I would eat here again.

Family style restaurant. One serving of BBQ ($60) is enough to feed 3-4 people and is very good. The hush puppies were great as well. Service was quick and friendly.

we went with a large group. The waiter took forever to come and take our order. The kids were restless and the food was cold and not good.

Located in coral towers at Atlantis. Advertises themselves as genuine Texas bbq. Mental note, if I'm ever in Texas, run, do not walk away from this restaurant. Everything is family style but portions aren't that big. 16 Average sized shrimp on 4 skewers, devoured by son in five minutes, cost $55. Ribs were awful and at $50. Don't ask about... More

We liked the restaurant the minute we walked in. We were seated right away. Service was attentive. It's family style, which made the $100 porterhouse steak we ordered seem a bit more reasonable. It's a bit on the expensive side-but it's Atlantis, expect that!
