The expense rating for this restaurant is incorrect. It should only be rated with $$ instead of $$$$. Very good food at very good prices. Breakfast on weekends is fantastic also.

This is my favorite restaurant in the Jacksonville area. The pot roast and chicken fried steak is excellent. Also the pumpkin bread and the red beans and rice and broccoli rice casserole are just amazing, I have also been very pleased with the service, Add in a nice waterfront view and great service.

Recommended by the staff at our hotel. I'm a huge seafood fan and rarely get to eat good fish in TN, so Barbara Jean's was a real treat. Their specialty she-crab soup was delicious, and not much beats classic fried catfish and shrimp. The view of the water sparkling by the deck was absolutely lovely, especially when we went around...

I've been to the Ponte Vedra Barbara Jeans several times over the years, and it's always been a great experience. Really tasty, complimentary fresh baked breads are served shortly after arriving. The shrimp fritter appetizer was really good. Our entrees included a chicken finger platter and a jumbo crab cake sandwich. Good service. A nice intracoastal waterway view added to... More

We arrived at 7:30 on a Saturday evening and had no wait for a table for 4 on the back patio. It was a great meal and a fabulous time. The kids have fun watching the boaters and feeding the fish. My husband and I enjoy the breeze, sunset, and the food. We tried the chicken fried steak and coconut... More

I travel for a living and the food at Barbara Jean's is what I would cook if I could cook at home! It was wonderful The bread basket passed around before dinner included cornbread, yeast rolls and PUMPKIN bread. I LOVE crab cakes but there are so few places that do it well, and this is one of them. It... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant for a dinner out. We decided that next time we would bring the kids. It's a very laid back restaurant with a kids menu. We ate outside on the deck along the Intracoastal, which was fun to have a beautiful backdrop while you wait for your food. Note: we went early on a... More

We enjoyed a Sunday afternoon lunch outside. The she crab soup was very tasty and full of crab. My husband enjoyed the coastal platter and I had the crab cake. Everything was cooked perfect and very tasty.

Whenever we go to PVB, we always go to Barbara Jean's. I really want to love this place. The atmosphere is nice and family friendly, and I love sitting outside on the waterway. The staff is always very friendly and the food is consistently good. But, I honestly don't "love it." It is just okay to me. I think that... More

This outpost of a small regional chain, sits on the inter coastal waterway and has both indoor and outside deck seating. The weather today was nice and we headed there for lunch on the deck. The menu features both seafood and traditional homestyle items, but please, don't come for the meat loaf or pot roast. The specialty is crab, either... More
