This was recommended by a friend recently in the area of Darien, GA. Great place for 'lightly battered' fried shrimp, something many fancier places get incorrectly. We shared the 1 lb shrimp dinner with the two sides, perfect (really a bit too much) for two persons. After two mediocre seafood meals in St. Simons Island, this was very much worth... More

If you didn't this place existed, you'd drive right by. It is one of Darien's secrets for the best fried shrimp and crab legs.

After hearing all the "you have to eat at B&J's, I found it not much more than any other small mim & pop restaurant. The gried chicken was excellent though.

This steak and seafood place is how "local" is spelled. LOCAL is all about the food, plentiful, good, great selection from menu or buffet. Building is "old", furniture does not match, chairs have seen better days, but the food is what it all about. Go early for evening meal, or you might have a bit of a wait. Staff members... More

B & J's is a well-known local seafood place in southeast GA. Off the beaten bath in McIntosh County (Darien, to be precise), there's nothing fancy about it. No 5-star decor or ambience, but it is, simply put, the best fried shrimp you can find. Anywhere. The restaurant can get crowded, there is frequently a long line on the weekends,... More

We spend Jan, Feb, and Mar in the Golden Isles and have gone to B & J’s many times over the past several years. B & J’s is our favorite place for shrimp by far. We’ve been there four times already this year and will be there again next week. We usually order the shrimp dinner and split it, that... More

not being a seafood person, I got the steak very good , wife got the lobster special all you can eat, She said it was the best she ever ate, price was average, had to wait about an hour, it was worth it, To look at the place you could tell it needed some TLC

Had a burger and my husband had shrimp basket. Both were delicious! Service was good. This is a "dive" local restaurant, so don't expect fine dining. The only thing that prevented me from giving a higher rating was the ladies room. IT WAS NASTY!!! Had I gone in there first, I may have left. I could have written a message... More

This little restaurant is located just over the bridge in Darien, Ga (McIntosh County). I eat here on a regular basis. The owners, Terry and Nicole Dowling, have the right combination that makes a great place to eat. Location, good prices, great staff and excellent food. They mainstays are steak and seafood. The have a 16 ounce rib-eye that will... More

And, apparently, plenty of very welcome non-locals who learned of the great food here. It's all about the food, value, and efficient service. Hard to cite a favorite food...the lunch buffet makes you feel as though you've sat down at grandma's table. The seafood...well, everyone's said if before me, but it is excellent! Umm, the shrimp--always, GA wild shrimp! But,... More
