If you need a veggie fix, this is the place to go

They have a wonderful array of veggies and veggie dishes to break the cycle of usual seaside restaurant fare. Their menu is much more extensive but we went for the veggies. There is a good chance you may have to wait but it is worth it.

On my, the food is great! They are always packed so plan ahead and whatever you do you have to get dessert, Chocolate Stuff, it is the thing for the chocolate lover.

So my crab cakes were divine and I admit I am a snob about them being from SC. They were great. BUT we waited for 30 minutes for a table, the waitress was over extended for sure, and the place was packed. Made for not great service (but not terrible) with three small children who were hungry. Ugh. And do... More

Barbara Jeans has wonderful food as well as service...a critical combination. My husband and I enjoy their vegetable plates, dinners, and the crab cakes are a speciality. All meals are served with a bread basket variety that's hard not to fill up on. We appreciate that the restaurant is also open during Thanksgiving. It's very easy to take our family... More

We made a quick trip to St. Simon before heading to Savannah. We decided to have an early dinner at Barbara Jean's. We were not disappointed. I had the crab cake sandwich, which was a large crab cake filled with lump crab. It was very good. My aunt had the chicken fried steak and sides, and my son had turkey... More

Had dinner on a busy Saturday night so we had quite a wait. However when we got a table (45/50 minute wait) the food was very tasty, the chicken fingers were huge and mouth watering, my shrimp salad was tasty and hubby's' fish platter of fish, crab cake and shrimp certainly hit the spot for him. Very tasty and reasonably... More

Family of 8. Sat within 5 min, but if min wait is a goal, get there before 1730. Below listed salad was deemed " Best Salad I Ever Ate" by my father in law. I had the Shrimp and Grits, and while I did think it had an "MSG" type feel to it...it was pretty darn tasty. The "Chocotale Stuff"... More
