Pleasantly surprised

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

I can't wait to go back to Jacksonville - just to eat hear again. 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

I hadn't gone in 2 years bcs the service was so painfully slow that I walked out in the past. I took some friends from out of town and quickly remembered why I hadn't been in so long. Food is wonderful, atmosphere fantastic, service still painfully slow which makes me wonder if there's a Mgmt problem.

We live in the neighborhood so we visit this place once in a couple weeks. The place has a great view (we always sit outside). The service is fast and waiters are friendly. Food is really good and always fresh. Will definitely recommend this place to my friends. Love to go here with my husband or whole family.

I went to Barbara Jean's for the 2nd time last weekend; we were a party of 10 which could be overwhelming in some restaurants. The staff was attentive and informative and didn't seem to mind when we ended up staying for a long time talking after our meal. The food was delicious and well priced. The view of the "low... More
