We were in the building to check out the game room and decided to eat. My husband really enjoyed his food - I know it was covered in a sauce but I don't remember what it was. The kids had hamburgers and fries and maybe fried shrimp. I had a salad and added grilled chicken - it was ehhhh. My... More

Been here twice. The second time was not great. BBQ was dry and tough. Found a hair in the plate. I recommend eating somewhere else.

When we visit Nassau, Virgil's is the first place we go for dinner. Pulled pork and brisket are excellent, we get more than enough to take home for sandwiches the next day. Avoid the ribs, they are boiled and chewy. Prices are a bit high but plates are generous portions.

Good! Huge portions. You can share the sides. The fried chicken was delicious. The wings were really good too. Great Bahamian flavor on them Service is slow and not super friendly. Make a reservation.

We were seated quickly after having reservations. The food wasn't explained very clearly but we were told the portions were big. We ordered 3 plates and 4 sides. A good amount for 2 adults and 2 kids. The chicken and pork were good but there are no buns, just 2 pieces of Texas toast each. All of the sides were... More

Virgil's was very good in Atlantis. A word of caution though, I would avoid the ribs, they are not what you would expect and you will be sorry that you ordered them. The pulled pork, brisket, especially the BBQ and fried chicken were very good. The sides are all delicious here and the service was very good also. I particularly... More

My wife and I were so excited to see that there was a Virgil's here. Because we didn't have reservations, we were sat at a high bar. The food was similar to the one in NYC, but lacking the fullness of it. It was not a disappointment, though.

We had the value plan so we could get an appetizer or dessert with our meal. Price did not matter. So of course, a couple people in my party got the $100 38 oz steak because why not? It was very good. My meal wasn't excellent, but still good for a bbq place at a resort. The grilled vegetable salad... More

Best bbq chicken, mashed potato and corn bread ever. The chicken felt like it melted in your mouth. The mashed potato was the BEST ever. The corn bread was awesome. To top of our meal we had a variety of drinks. We had some leftovers to take home. Dinner was Delicious. Would definitely visit again. Kudos Virgil's.
