We had seen this restaurant before when visiting St Simon's, but expected it to be just another coastal fried seafood joint. We gave it a try this time and were very pleased. Everything we tried was excellent, starting with the perfect crab cakes, the contrasting coconut crusted shrimp and the crunchy fried fish. The bread coarse with pumpkin bread, corn... More

We arrived on a Friday evening about 7PM. We were promptly seated. I had the she crab soup which was excellent, and for the entree a small crab cake with two sides, Mac n cheese, and freshly cooked carrots. The key lime tart for dessert was excellent. Our party of five bill was about $116, a pretty good value. Recommended.... More

Before deciding on Barbra Jeans heard of a lot of good things even on Trip advisor especially the crab cakes. Before visiting was told otherwise by locals. Actual experience not so good. 8.95 for a 5 oz crab cake that tasted like a salmon cake. Atmosphere was not much better. Much better places on the island,

Must go to Barbara Jean's if you are near St. Simon's Island. The bread is great - pumpkin bread, wheat bread, and jalapeno cornbread!

In touristy St Simons its always a treat to find great food which also gives you value for your money. Barbara Jeans is never a disappointment. True Southern comfort food deliciously prepared and served with a smile. I love the meatloaf but the country fried steak is great, as well as everything I've ever ordered.
