“Great Thanksgiving dinner here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

We met old friends at Barbara Jeans and had a great experience. Even though it was a holiday and busy, we were seated and served promptly. The food was excellent and I had the crab cakes so went back a couple of days later to try the turkey dinner which my friend had and recommended. Wish there was a Barbara Jeans on the west coast near Crystal River/Ocala.

“Favorite place on the River”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Never had anything that wasn't very tasty. Love the pumpkin bread and everything is always fresh. Great place to sit outdoors and watch the dolphin and boats go by. Fun for the whole family.

Low key, good food. Relaxed atmosphere. Friendly wait staff. Reminds me of family recipes and fun people.

“One of the Most Scenic Island Restaurants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you're looking for a restaurant with an interesting view AND good food without spending a fortune, Barbara Jean's makes the short list of options. Especially great for families with kids, who will enjoy the critters in waters just off the deck while you watch the boats troll down the intracoastal. The menu offers a great variety, something for everyone, and some southern specialties. You'll remember the atmosphere more than the service or food, but it's a good value overall.

“Good eating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

A rather expensive eat, but delicious food, a beautiful view of the marsh, and a friendly staff. The catfish is especially good as is the she-crab soup.
