Our favorite in the area

We spent the weekend in Jacksonville Beach and drove here the our last day, would go back if we had another day. Sat outside, the view alone makes it worth it, but service and price were great too. I had fried catfish,which tasted fresh and not too greasy, with excellent coleslaw. Everyone agreed... read more

We do not eat often at Barbara Jeans. When we do, the crab cakes are good as is the bread. There is a full bar and the back deck is amazing. It tends to be a little loud inside, but the staff has always been friendly and helpful.

A wonderful place to enjoy a lazy relaxing Sunday afternoon. The crab cakes were fantastic. I have lived in the area for many years and regret not having gone here sooner. My only issue would be that the booth seating is very uncomfortable.

We love the seafood here and the service is always good. You must eat outside on the deck to take in the great waterfront view!

I had my usual fried catfish and vegetables. The vegetables are always very good and my favorite pumpkin bread.

It was okay. I was so excited to book a reservation there based on Barbara Jean's at St. Simon's Island. It didn't measure up to my expectations.

I was disappointed by the food. It seemed as if it was from frozen fish. It was greasy and nothing special. Many people we know swear by it but there are many better alternatives from LuLus to Palm Valley Fish Co for a good fish dinner. I might try it again because I might have gone on a bad day.... More

This is a very unassuming little restaurant in appearance, but the food was AMAZING!!! It is off the beaten path as we drove from Jacksonville, over a couple of large bridges, and then through a lovely wooded neighborhood to get to it's river-front location...but a very pleasant drive and well worth it. We had to wait a little while for... More

I just want to say wow! This place is so good and friendly, our waitress Elizabeth was beyond inviting and so helpful. The food was so delicious. We ordered the crab cake appetizer and it was all crab no fillers. My husband ordered the shrimp and grits and the grits were so creamy and the shrimp perfectly cooked. It came... More
