We were told by a friend to try this place for lunch because it was good food. We were staying near there at The Lodge at the Cloister. We can only say it was ok. I ordered the 7oz crab cake. It wasn't that great. My husband had a salad with fried chicken. The chicken looked liked it had been... More

Just average food, shells in the she crab soup and crab cakes were OK. It had been a while since we had been there and thought we would try it again. Wanted it to be better.

Best food we have had in a while, all types of food available, our group of four had more food than we could think of finishing. Food looked and tasted amazing. The she-crab soup is a must. The onion rings with bacon and cheese are a must. Hometown hospitality

Had the Jumbo Crab Cake Sandwich and loved every bite! Hubby had a bacon cheeseburger and it was very good as well. My Step-Daughter ordered the pecan crusted chicken tenders and they were good and very plentiful! Like getting 5 chicken breasts on your plate rather than skinny tenders!

Been here twice and it was consistently good. The fried chicken is awesome and there is a lot to choose from. Would definitely go back.

Terrific "low country food". The she crab soup was outstanding. The crab cakes were the best we've ever had. The corn bread and pumpkin bread were extra treats. Convenient to Pier Village, we highly recommend.

I seriously would have gone back if there weren't so many other places to explore. Diner atmosphere but offering the freshest products. Tuna steaks yes I said steaks were cooked perfectly. The plate was served with 2 steaks on rice and also a choice of 2 sides. Cab cake is a must. We took 2 home for later consumption. Meatloaf... More

If you're on SSI, Barbara Jeans is a must stop at and eat place. The food is amazing. ( especially the pumpkin bread) the service is top notch. And the location is easy to find. Highly recommend giving it a visit.
