There is nothing like great lump meat crab cakes, like I have enjoyed along Chesapeake Bay down as far as Virginia and Maryland and many Northern cities, so I was excited when I heard that this restaurant was known for their crab cakes. Unfortunately, I must report that these cakes don't measure up. There was no lump meat crab in... More

Now understand, we had been on the road for two weeks and eating out every night. The same old entrees can get a bit tiresome so when we looked at Barbara Jeans menu and saw good old Grilled Cheese Sandwiches we were elated. And they were terrific. Bacon on mine, tomatoes on my wife's. Of course the restaurant offers a... More

I found Barbara Jean’s to be off the mark when I dined there. The server was horrible, talking loud and interrupted my conversation in order to take my order, constantly dangled her breast over the top of my drink as she reached across me to serve, served ½ the table at a time when she should have requested help serving….probably...

We ate one breakfast and one lunch at Barbara Jean's. The food is delicious and plentiful. The service is friendly. I adore their home made breads and the vegetable dishes are uniquely wonderful. They also have a full bar. Try the meatloaf! or the Turkey!

It's hard to beat Barbara Jean's restaurant in the Pier Village for good, wholesome, filling food. They serve lunch and dinner and have a full bar. There is a very broad menu with daily specials and the opportunity to make a meal of vegetables only. Wait times vary with the season and time of day. In good weather there are... More

Bread lovers will enjoy the southern bread basket appetizer that is brought to your table upon arrival. The chicken fried steak is some of the best I've ever eaten. Save room for the Chocolate Stuff desert. It is the most decadent chocolate desert that one person cannot eat the bowl. It needs to be shared by at least two people.... More

Local friends urged us to have lunch at Barbara Jean's on St. Simon's Island, and we weren't disappointed. The decor was lovely casual South, with an almost Key West feel. The bread basket starter had wonderful cornbread with jalapenos, pumpkin bread and a yummy roll. The bowl of she-crab soup could have been a meal in itself, but I also... More

We actually went to this establishment in May 2013. The service was mediocre at best. I had the she crab soup and it ws d full of shell pieces. If you're looking for a greasy spoon, I guess it's ok. But don't offer something like she crab soup and make it so poorly that the reviewers would never go back.... More

We have been to Barbara Jeans a few years back and had not been too impressed, but decided to try it again after eating elsewhere in the last few years. We arrived around 4.30pm to avoid the usual rush later on, so we enjoyed better service than we had had in the past. We ordered pot roast and fish and... More
