One of the better places to eat

We sat down to eat with high hopes. A casual dining restuarant at Atlantis that serves bbq for the kids. Location is excellent and close to the ray and turtle tanks. Food was awful. Dry, overcooked, not much flavor. Not one person in our party of 6 had a good meal. Atlantis needs more casual places like this so really... More

I know it's a BBQ joint but this was really the best steak I ever had. They serve family style so we ordered the 37oz T-bone steak and our server said it was the first time he saw anyone finish it! I'm sure the other stuff on the menu is just as good. Great place to bring the family just... More

The food is soooo good and you get sooo much. we had bbq chicken, catfish, mac & cheese, collard greens, cheese gritts, and corn bread. There were 4 adults in our party, we were seated right away and the food came out quick. Family style eating affords everyone the chance to order something and sample many different foods. We ate...

For the price they charge for their family style dishes, they should be much larger. WE ordered a bowl of macaroni and cheese for $22, and it looked like it was only enough to feed 2 people as a side dish. Fried chicken was delicious, corn bread and ribs were great too.

Good BBQ place. Service was decent although not great. If you like BBQ then Virgils is a good place to eat.

Out of the way restaurant on the Atlantis Property. Of all the places we ate, I thought this was probably the best overall value (entrees less than $20 USD each). The BBQ is good, but I wouldn't consider it great. I recommend the onion rings and hush puppy starters. I thought they both tasted pretty good. The restaurant overlooks a... More

Family style bar b que, southern dishes done with a Bahamian flair makes a great combination. Follow the advice of servers so as not to over order (unless you want to take leftovers to your room). The shrimp is delicious, the beef is tender, the chicken very tasty and the collard greens were the best we ever had. The key... More

Unless you thrive on gluttony, I think this restaurant is a better option for lunch. Portion sizes are smaller and the value is pretty good. Would definitely go back for lunch.
