Floors inside are filthy.

The crab cakes and service are 5 star. The entry floor is filthy and they need a professional company to do something with it. First impressions are important.

Food is always good. Very nice atmosphere right on the intercoastal. Kept the kids busy watching all the boats go by. Great place to just relax and enjoy the wonderful food and water. I had the grilled salmon salad. It was excellent. Hubby had the crab cake sandwich fries. He said it was the best crab cake he has had.... More

Having lived in the area for some time, Barbara Jean's has always been a great standby restaurant when you just don't know what you have a taste for. The food is always fresh and delicious. There is ample seating outside for those that want to watch the boats go by and wave. You will not be disappointed!

We went to Barbara Jean's based on Trip Advisor reviews and weren't disappointed. The fish and chips were delicious, as was the dirty rice. The vegetable of the day, macaroni and cheese! It was good, not the best item on the menu though. Our children loved the chocolate stuff dessert. Reasonably priced, nice staff.

From the outside I wouldn't have stayed if the parking lot had not been so packed. Figured a packed parking lot was a good sign. Best bread basket (pumpkin bread, cornbread and rolls). Food came out fast and was delicious.

Great local restaurant. We felt just like "locals" eating here. It was family friendly. Great service and beautiful location on a bayou. You can eat inside or out and it was definitely family friendly. We had the crab cakes, fried shrimp, fried fish, red beans and rice, squash casserole, she crab soup, potato soup, and all were delicious. They bring... More

Serioulsy delicious home made food - Coconut Shrimp, Crab Cakes, She Crab Soup, Ambrosia - everything - even the grits - was delicious. The location is a beautiful setting along the Intra Coastal Waterway. Great creative drinks from the bar, and some of the best food... More

Took my son and his family here on a Saturday as a follow-up to a previous visit several years ago. Surprised at how developed the area had become with McMansions taking over what previously was a quaint rural area. As a result, it makes finding the restaurant a little bit more difficult as it doesn't scream at you as you... More

This waterfront oasis can be a bit difficult to find but well worth it. And it can even be entertaiing if you enjoy seeing some pretty upscale waterfront homes that line the route, especially approaching from the south. We have been there on multiple occasions over the past two years and it is consistent in food quality, service, and atmosphere.... More

My husband and I visited Barbara Jean's in Fernandina and I really wanted to try this one. He's very kind, so he brought me to this Ponte Vedra location. The location was beautiful. We sat outside on the deck and watched the boats go by on the water. The staff and the regulars there were very nice and everyone driving... More
