We dined on a night when the restaurant was full and understaffed. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. From that point on, though, we waited a long time at every step. I felt for our server, who clearly had more tables than he should have. We waited a long time to order, and then our food arrived fairly... More

We visited here as a family and was looking forward to it but the ribs were all dry and not much meat and quite fatty and all the food was Luke warm not even hot like it had been sitting around for ages would go again had ribs the night before in chop sticks and they were amazing.

I didn't have very high expectation, but I was defiantly blown away. We visited Virgil's several times during our stay and was our favourite restaurant on Paradise Island. The menu was good and the food was even better. The cocktails were great as well. The restaurant is located a small walk away form the bustling part of the Adventure Park... More

The brisket was very lean and tender. The pulled chicken was flavorful. The service was good. We were there for the Super Bowl, there were plenty of TVS'. The portions were large. We took the leftovers back to the hotel room to finish the game. Excellent place to view sporting events

When my family and I went to Virgil's, I didn't have high hopes. BBQ is tough to do really well, and I'm from Texas. But I'll tell you this - it was FANTASTIC!!! It isn't cheap, but it's a really tasty and quality meal. So it's probably worth it (considering that everything is rather $$ at Atlantis). The waitstaff was... More

The only restaurant we went to 2x as the ribs were amazing and I had to get a bottle of BBQ sauce to bring home. Fried Chick was good too and the catfish was tasty. My 2.5 year old daughter got the popcorn shrimp and ate it all up and some of my ribs too.

The amount of food they give you in obscene! The food is delicious, but be prepared to take a lot back to the room with you!
