Best she-crab soup and crab cakes you can fine. The vegetable plate is an absolute treat. Sit on the deck and enjoy a fabulous meal. Be nice to the wait staff and they bring you extra baskets of their delicious breads

Went on a weeknight. Service was attentive although our server needed to cheer up. Food was good. I've read some reviews on this restaurant that their shrimp is frozen before it is cooked. That was not the case on our visit. I had the shrimp and grits and my wife had the coconut shrimp. Both dishes were wonderful.

The She Crab soup is a must as is the pumpkin bread.

I've always enjoyed Barbara Jean's. Fantastic food, great setting. But, we've only been for lunch or dinner, and I typically get the amazing Shrimp & Grits. I didn't even know they were open for breakfast until last week. We went for a business meeting at 9am on Saturday, and it was great! Fantastic breakfast menu (I had the crab cakes Benedict) and the best part is that you can sit outside in the morning before it gets too hot and enjoy the great setting on the ICW. I would definitely do that again!

The food here is amazing! I got the famous chicken tenders in Buffalo sauce and was not disappointed. Also got the potato cheese soup, very good. The key lime martini was delicious. My 3 other girlfriends all loved their choices as well. Our server could have been a bit more attentive and friendly..we had to keep waving her over to get service and eventually had to ask for management.. but overall it was great and we will be back again
