Best Fresh Shrimp

We have been to this place many times, and it's been excellent every time. It's nothing to look at, shabby at best, but oh boy you get a full pound of shrimp, and they are fresh off the shrimp boats that sail out of Darien. Do NOT go for the buffet, it's OK but nothing like the fresh made for... read more

I was raised on fresh seafood, so I'm really picky and I was impressed! This is the only place I'll eat seafood, other than home. You can't get fresh wild Georgia shrimp like this anywhere else. They got it goin on! The lunch buffet was really good. The banana pudding is really good. The only thing I didn't like it... More

2nd trip to eat shrimp after a trip to Jekyll Island. We re-routed our trip home just to eat here. The shrimp plates/baskets are delicious! Plenty of fresh - lightly breaded - shrimp. Oh my, makes me want to plan another trip there (4 hours away). You won't be disappointed...!!!

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. Platters are heaping and they have a buffet for those wanting a broader sample of well seasoned, local flavors, including boiled shrimp,... More

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
