Dinner is a casual dining event with picnic table feel. Boats zoom by on the inter-coastal. Good selection and the seafood platter was a big portion. Well worth the visit. Easy and plentiful parking.

We dropped in without reservations on a recent Friday evening. Since they don't take reservations and with the golf tournament in full swing nearby - we thought we might have a lengthy wait for a table. No! The place was actually about half empty which I found to be very unexpected. We started outside on the deck looking across the... More

If you can get a table outside the view is wonderful. Watching the boats and jet-skis go by is a lot of fun. The food is okay. Good Southern comfort, however the crab cake is very good and the pumpkin bread amazing! The chocolate stuff for dessert is heavenly.

As always, great food and service! Perfect weather, so we sat outside on the deck overlooking the water. If you are in the area, a must stop!

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

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.

The floors in this restaurant are deceptive. Our contractor did them incorrectly and we have been battling the appearance ever since. We assure you they are indeed very clean despite how they look. The are cleaned twice daily and routinely given very deep cleanings. Having said that, we just need to better if it made you uncomfortable. 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.
