We all went there for a casual weekday lunch while on vacation, and it was so good that we ended up going back again two days later. We were seated immediately, our service was great, and the crab cake sandwich was outstanding. Highly recommended.

We had lunch here at Barbara Jean's after church. My daughter chose the hamburger with mushrooms and Swiss. I had the meatloaf and the squash casserole. Both dishes were delicious!

I don't believe they take reservations. Just get your name on the list and enjoy shopping at the shops at the pier while you wait!
