When you enjoy an evening meal outside overlooking the intracoastal waters and admiring the variety of dishes available to you on the menu, you will come to the conclusion that you have arrived in Southern Heaven. Crab cakes are a specialty but I still have a mouth watering desire to experience the octopus and white bean salad appetizer once again.... More

We enjoyed sitting outside on the Intracoastal Waterway watching boats, birds, & fish while we ate. The crab cake is SO yummy, along with the fried shrimp. We loved the side dishes, and the yummy basket of bread that is served too. Barbara Jeans is a must when in town!

I like most BBQ, but find some is served lukewarm with soggy sides. We found the food here really yummy. The meal comes out hot. The variety of BBQ sauces are on your table and labeled with a description: very helpful! The mac and cheese is homemade and delicious. I would recommend the ribs; they were phenomenal. Friendly service. They... More

Wow, how this place has changed. Barbara Jeans has always been known for the crab cakes, but after yesterday's visit, we were hugely disappointed. There was no music outside and the server took 15 minutes to wait on us. There were 6 of us, we ordered burgers, which were overdone, crab cakes & catfish that were burnt not fried. Our... More

This is a relatively small restaurant, with deck seating by the river. In addition to seafood there's a variety of other food choices. Everyone in our group was happy with their selections. The place was very busy, so obviously a very popular place. Prices are a good value. Great service.

We went for dinner - 4 adults and one toddler. Inside was a scent of paint, but it hasn't been all that long after the hurricane and several places in the area are still fixing up a bit. The outside dining area was one of the nicest along that stretch of the Intracoastal Waterway, though without screening it could be... More

Went for a light dinner with my wife. The crabcake is indeed very very good. I am on a diet that does not allow me to eat certain things. The waitress wasn't up to be patient with me and try to "serve". When I asked if there were other verve tables besides the ones in the menu she said "well... More

This restaurant is an amazing place to visit. The ambience is of local waterfront dining. The menu has great selection. Seating is available inside and dockside. Their homemade breads are served as a bottomless courtesy item. Homemade jalapeño corn bread, pumpkin bread and large yeast rolls. The she crab soup and crab cakes are an awesome selection. Their shrimp and... More

Barbara Jeans is known for having the best crab cakes around..try the creamy cheesy grits or the dirty rice, just a few of the many side dishes they offer
