BEST DANG SHRIMP ON THE PLANET

Do not let the simple exterior belie the truly fantastic food found inside. You ask anyone in the area, and I asked several, where the best place to eat in Darien and B&J's is always mentioned along with

We went to the Friday night seafood buffet on the recommendation of our RV resort host. It was worth the drive! The service was incredible, and the buffet had plenty of choices - both seafood and sides. The fried shrimp, crab, crabcakes, and mac and cheese were excellent. We'd read about the long lines, so we called to find out... More

First - this is NOT a fancy place. This is what I would call a "local joint". However, they do have good fried shrimp - and HUGE portions. It does tend to be "heavy" food as well. It is insanely crowded and small - so be prepared to get friendly with the people next to you. The food is good... More

Best shrimp in the Golden Isles and PLENTY of it!! Not fancy, in fact its what most would call a hole in the wall! Expect a wait on the weekends but they do have an excellent cell phone call when table ready so can sit in the comfort of your car.

If you're looking for ambience, forget it. If you're looking for fabulous fried shrimp, this is the place! We got the dinner, which is easily enough for two. Included "real" mashed potatoes and a big scoop of really tAsty slaw. They also had a buffet that included fried chicken and lots of country-style veggies. It looked delicious! Now we know... More

This was recommended to us as a place that locals go to eat. As others have mentioned, no atmosphere, very small. It was crazy busy on a weeknight, but we got seated about 15 minutes after we arrived. The wait staff does hustle, but I think they would be better served to add an additional person. I had to ask...

A local shared with our family that this was the place the locals go to eat, so we tried it out for a late weekday lunch, My grand daughter and I had the buffet which had ample choices of homemade meats, veggies and salad bar as well as a few options for dessert. There were real mash potatoes, fried chicken... More

If you are looking for good solid southern local food, this is a great choice worth the added bonus of great crablegs. Worth the price and wait!
