Very good for lunch

Go on Fridays and order the New England clam chowder. Probably the best my wife and I have ever eaten. Weather permitting sit outdide and see the passing boats on the Intercoastal Waterway.

Crab cakes, yes! I don't need to say more. Lots of local folks here, so you know it's good and the prices are very respectable. I was sea-fooded out, so had the T-bone and even that was good. The salads are Giant. On Solana, go on past Lulu's and that other place right next to it for about a mile... More

Came back last week and enjoyed the delicious crabcakes and salad. I haven't been here in a long time, but it is just the same and the view can't be beat. It is always a great place to bring people from out of town.

The food was a fair price. My 90 year old Mom loved their fried Shrimp and hand battered onion rings. Our special diet orders were followed perfectly. Breakfast was equally good (Weekends only). It is sad they don't let you sit at your table until entire party arrives (you would think they would be happy people have selected their restaurant... More

Having lived in Maryland for some years, it is difficult to find crab cakes that are Maryland-style, mostly crab with very little filling, but those at Barbara Jean's are very close. The restaurant isn't fancy, but it is a 'fish shack' on the water, and it is perfect for what it is meant to be. Our meal was great and... More

I was visiting my aunt in Ponte Vedra and she took us here. It was so good we had to come twice! Their crab cakes are amazing and the service was great. The first time we sat inside, but the second time we sat on the patio right next to the Intercoastal. It was so pretty and it was fun... More

Barbara Jean's is a casual, home-style type of place with good food & friendly service. Their specialty is Crab Cakes. They also have a lot of home-style favorites like Meatloaf, Chicken Fried Steak, Fried Shrimp, etc. The bread basket is yummy: wheat rolls, corn bread and pumpkin bread, served with Honey Butter - very tasty.They also have an outpost on...

We went For lunch today and sat out on the deck at the coveted corner table right on the water. Our waiter Pasha was very knowledgeable about the menu. He was also very attentive and made our experience so much more enjoyable. While we were looking at the menu he brought over a basket of jalapeño cornbread and pumpkin bread.... More
