Probably the best shrimp on the East Coast

You just can't get much better shrimp than this. B & J's is a local seafood joint that gets quite the crowd - and for good reason - their claim to fame is their lightly fried, local shrimp.

Wanted to try something 'local' during our trip home. Since this place had good reviews, we figured it would be a logical choice. Evidently, we did not experience what others had recommended here. It is fine for ambiance to be less than great, IF the food is excellent; unfortunately, that was not the case. Looked newly painted outside, but everything... More

My husband and I stopped here after the hotel we were staying at recommended it. When we drove up I thought "oh no" because it didn't look too good and thought the same thing when we walked in. But it was packed! The food was fantastic!!!! I got Surf & Turf and it was the best I have ever had!... More

Had to wait for a table, but it was worth every minute of the 30 minutes! We weren't too hungry, so we got the shrimp dinner platter with easily 2 dozen sweet, delectable Georgia shrimp instead of the all-you-can-eat buffet. I am ruined for any other shrimp! Service was quick, very friendly. Great value for the money. Highly recommend.

We enjoyed selections from the menu. Simple, but tasty and well prepared. More than enough to satisfy our hunger. Had been told to expect a long wait to get in, but guess we were lucky and beat the crowd. (Mid-week evening.) If you're really, really hungry, opt for the buffet. Watched people who did and marveled at the amount of... More

We got there so late-at about 9:00 PM, after our last business meeting of the day. I wasn't confident the food would be very good so close to closing time on a Tuesday night. I. Was. Wrong! First, everyone who worked there was so nice and welcoming, as if we were the first customers of the night. Second, the food... More

Love the buffet too. Just get there early!!! Family friendly. Just understand, we are all family. You may have to share a table but I have ALWAYS had a pleasurable experience.

We discovered B&J's 3 years ago, traveling home from FL to NC on I-95, exit 49. And now it's one of the highlights of our trip each year! Oh my, so many shrimp cooked to perfection. Count this year for one pound was 20, and they're huge. Served with fries and Texas toast, more than you think you can eat.... More
