Had looked on Trip Advisor for a place to have breakfast and the top rated one was closed - and are we glad it was! Across the street we found Barbara Jean's. Everything from the beginning was great - the atmosphere was cozy, the hostess friendly and prompt, the service staff attentive AND the FOOD - fantastic! They start by bringing a plentiful basket of freshly baked breads, your choice. We were full before we even got our breakfast! We ordered an omelet and pancakes and both were some of the best we ever had! So next time you are in St. Simons
go to BJ's - we can't wait to try it for lunch and dinner!

After a week on SSI, we discussed our favorite meal. Barbara Jean's was the winner. Our family of 5 had: crab cakes (as good as advertised, grilled chicken (great marinade - best chicken I have had in years) and a bowl of potato soup. Sides we enjoyed included: Mac & Cheese, squash casserole, stewed tomatoes, white cheddar grits, etc. All were excellent. The bread basket they bring before the meal was outstanding! We will definitely return. Well done!

a personal favorite, Coconut battered shrimp for me (always), crab cake dinner for my wife (always); great sides, love the dirty rice; we had about a 30 minute wait but worth it; met a gentleman in like from Fort Wayne, IN, he said he returns for "shrimp and grits" always.....it looked pretty good....a reason to return yet again; enjoy

Being from MD, we are very particular about crabcakes. Barbara Jean's are outstanding. We liked eating outside.

Several people recommended going to Barbara Jean's for their great crab cakes. I was not disappointed. My wife (who does not like seafood) got their meatloaf which was almost as good as her own! Great service, too.
