We have eaten here every year on our trip south for the last 15 years and have never had a bad meal. Our favorite is the coconut shrimp and crab cakes. Very good service. Prices are slightly on the high side but worth it . Also try their crab bisque---excellent. Will return again for sure.

The homemade breads were delicious and teh best part of the meal. I was a little disappointed with the seafood. I expected there to be more local fish. the crab cakes were good, but don;t necessarily live up to their hype. The server wasn't able to answer questions and said she didn't know rather than trying to find the answers... More

A group of us went there after church, and as always it was good food. If you like country cooking Barbara Jeans is the place for you. Their pumpkin bread is like eating desert! If you want something on the lite side, their Blue Salad is very fresh. Everyone enjoyed their dinner there.

Our latest lunch visit proved to us that everything on the menu is good. While a little off the beaten path, Barbara Jean’s is well worth the travel and is the best restaurant in the immediate area. You will not believe the size of the glass used to serve soda and tea. The menu is varied but American, with lots... More

So, one beautiful as usual Saturday morning a sizable group of us Active Adult Motorcyclists rode up to Barbara Jean's for breakfast... and we didn't leave the place for well over an hour, most of it spent thoroughly enjoying some very hearty fare and the rest spent yakking away, totally unable to get up and ride home. What a treat.... More

Went here on a recommendation from a friend who is a Beaufort native. Crab cakes were wonderful, probably best i have had outside Maryland. Grilled catfish great as well. Lots of choices for "vegetables" including good slaw, dirty rice and carolina red rice

A wonderful restaurant with almost a diner feel. A nice porch if you want to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air. The crab cakes were delicious and the chocolate stuff dessert enough to share...rich but good! A great find if you like southern cooking and seafood. The best of both worlds for all types of diners. Reasonably priced, casual... More

The restaurant is sort of hidden away off of the road a couple of yards and amongst the trees. The deck seating on the porch has a view of the greenery. The inside is a simple, warm atmosphere family style restaurant with booths and tables and a bar. The food was good but not amazing. The she crab soup was... More

Excellent food and surroundings (we ate outside!) - so good we ate lunch and dinner there! The servers (Gary and Carrie) were very helpful and friendly. They made the whole experience even better!
