Barbara Jean's is a family-style restaurant directly on the Intracoastal Waterway. Desirable seating is on the deck over the water. The food is very good, service is very good, the atmosphere is outstanding - being sort of old Florida in nature. Reviewer was there for lunch with eight others. Service was fast and professional, food came in large portions and... More

Barbara Jean's is one of the few restaurants with "on the water" seating. The food is home style and consistently excellent. My favorite dinner is the blackened tuna! My wife prefers the blackened chicken. I am a regular at breakfast (served on the weekends only.) Try the Pot Roast hash or my favorite Bacon Cheddar Omelet with Italian Scramble sauce.... More

We stop in to Barbara Jeans when we are looking for some good home style food. They start you off with a wonderful bread basket that includes yeast bread and assorted spice breads, yum. We have tried several dishes and I love the coconut shrimp the best! I also like the fish sandwich, my husband enjoys the crab cakes and... More

Of you want really good comfort food in an old Florida setting then Barbara Jeans is it. We live a few miles from the restaurant and visit 3 to 5 times a month. The menu is varied from seafood to beef and portioned fairly. Price is very reasonable.

I had the pot roast and the Blue Cheese Salad. It was great. We were a party of five and we all enjoyed our dinners. Super casual home cooking.

For the excellent quality of the meals, the prices are very reasonable. Both indoor and outdoor seating available. When the weather is... More

Reminds me way too of Cracker Barrel; overcooked green beans; boring "Chicken fried chicken" and "chicken fried steak". The blue plate special is alive and well here and popular with the regular clientele. On the bright side, great setting on the river, decent shrimp and grits and good she crab soup. Nice wait staff.

My aunt and her friend first took us to Barbara Jean's last year, saying we had to have their crab cakes. We were impressed with those and the rest of the menu, having been back several times since then. Nice view of the Intracoastal; you can sit inside or out on the large deck and watch boats go by.

I ate at Barbara Jeans this past weekend for the first time, by accidentally discovering it on google maps. It's a really nice little restaurant, hidden out of the way and off the main road. The restaurant serves up delicious food and a great view of the Intracoastal Waterway. I really enjoyed the Try 'em all chicken tenders. 2 of... More

This was my first time eating at this restaurant but it certainly won't be my last. We started with an order of onion rings as an appetizer and they came out cooked perfectly, nice batter and without dripping of grease. I had their fish and chips and my wife had their turkey BLT and we thoroughly enjoyed both. Even had... More
