“Awesome crab cakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2006

The crab cakes were so good two years ago, we had to have them mail ordered to share with our California neighbors on New Year's Eve. They all loved them.

“Best on the Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2005

Visited St. Simons Island in April 2005. Barabara Jean's is still the best place for great food and a very nice atmosphere. The Crab cakes are out of this world and the "Chocolate Stuff" melts in your mouth. "Ooh!!!! so good. I love this place and will definitely come back again and again. You can tell if a place has great food... the lines outside of the place tells all. There is always a wait for seating at this place even at 11:00 when they first open.

“Loved it loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2005

We visited St. Simon's over a year ago and were told we had to try Barbara Jean's. We were not dissappointed so went again this year when visiting again. You have to try the She crab soup, the crab cakes, caesar salad.....I could go on - It's all good. We noticed that a lot of the staff were the same as the year before, so the working conditions obviously lead to a happy staff, and great service.

Well worth a visit. A+
