Today> I ordered the turkey dinner, 2 pieces of sliced turkey on plate, 1 - partially PINK! I asked for manager, and she arrived fairly soon.

Barbara Jean's is clean, friendly, attentive, and offers a great selection of drinks and entrees. Definitely not a place for the health conscious, but enjoyable as a "night off" from your diet.

We got there one hour before closing and it was quite obvious we had inconvenienced them on their cleaning duties. The food was less than average and the service was sub-par. Save your money and look else where.

We always make a point to eat at Barbara Jeans every visit to Saint Simons. We love the she-crab soup, crab cakes and of course do not forget the chocolate stuff!

We just had dinner there last night with a family group of 8 and although the service was fast it was hardly friendly. Mostly all enjoyed the food but don't expect a smile. The meals were "'typically Southern" aka fried. The crab cakes were the stand out and the tuna was also a hit. The pumpkin bread and corn bread... More

Not only are the crab cakes good (they ship them around the world) but their other meals are fantastic as well. Definitely worth the time to eat here if anywhere close to the area.

As W.W.E. wrestler Daniel Bryant says, YES, YES, YES! My son and I recently visited Barbara Jeans while on vacation on St. Simon's island. We liked it so much we actually went back again while there. YES, we ate there twice while on vacation. Let me tell you, you will not go away unhappy with your experience. Our first visit... More

The shrimp fritters were great. Service was very friendly. I got the impression that these people really took pride in their restaurant.
