We think they must bring in the food from somewhere else. It was terrible. We will not be going there again.

Virgil's Real BBQ was just that REAL BBQ. They gave you a generous portion of food. I ate off my meal for 2 days. It's a bit pricey, but it's the Bahamas! The drinks were tasty.

I rarely write bad reviews but I had to say something about Virgils. Buyer Beware. I've eaten BBQ all over the South and I have never had BBQ Sauce that tasted like this. The Chicken Wings were by far the worst Wings I can ever...More

Virgils was expensive but we enjoyed ourselves sitting next to the sting ray pond with Carribean music playing. We felt like we were in a Disney movie. I had a frozen pina Colada which was potent : ). Portions are small for lunch. 4 grilled...More

Really like it here, all courses are served 'family style' which means they're huge and for at least two people. It's nothing fancy, it isn't meant to be. I can recommend the 'train wreck fries' and the 'BBQ Chicken'. Good for groups of friends and...More
