“Delightful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

The BEST crab cakes I have ever eaten! Fast service even when busy. Sweet cornbread and pumpkin bread served with every meal. Try the she-crap soup too!

“Doesn’t get any better than this.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Came here on recommendation of a friend. So glad I did. The is one of the best meals we’ve ever had at any price... and the prices here are very inexpensive.
We shared Barbara Jean’s " famous crab cakes". For once, I was not disappointed. It far exceeded our expectations. They were almost %75 crab meat. We ordered extra sides because they were so good. Do yourself a favor, and treat yourself to B.J.’s.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Wonderful choice for lunch! Everything ordered by the 5 of us was delicious, but especially enjoyed the muffins of all flavors! Cornbread is worth the trip!

“Great food. Share an entree for $3.00 sur charge.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Very crowded after 12:00 for lunch. I would advise getting there early because there is barely room to wait, but it is worth the effort. The food is great! Don't fill up on the bread basket!
