Had dinner recently, was looking forward considering on earlier trip had one of the best steaks in my life there. Not this time, they are using way too much dry rub, not only that food made my son and I sick.

The food itself was average but the prices are very inflated. My wife had grilled shrimp for $32.00 and received 8 small shrimp. Then add the charge for the sides and your paying over $50.00 per chain restaurant BBQ. This is before even having anything to drink.

Despite a so-so experience last year, we decided to go back to Virgil's hoping for great BBQ. We were not disappointed 2nd time around. Staff was courteous, efficient and a sense of fun. Attention to our needs (drinks or more ketchup) was prompt but not pestering. Ribs were amazing, big succulent, saucy. Kids ordered nachos and loaded fried (forget the... More

Virgils had the best drinks in the resort with great and fast service, the outside seating was a beautiful picture-op and looking at the stingrays while having lunch was very nice!

I would not recommend or go back here. Virgil's in the US is really good. Here the service is marginal at best, the food is still good, but the significantly raised prices don't make for an overall good experience in my book. And when we asked for small modifications, we were basically told no despite paying very high end prices... More

Great food in an absolutely gorgeous setting in beautiful Paradise Island in the Bahamas. Great place to unwind

We ate here twice, having barbeque once and fried chicken another time. In both cases we ordered one serving of meat for two people and a couple of side dishes. This was plenty, as the portions were large. They were also expensive. The barbeque was better than the chicken. The collard greens were good.

The food here was very good, there were many options on the menu. Our kids also have food allergies and they had a chef come out to speak with us so we could find "safe" foods for everyone. We were so happy with the ambiance, cleanliness, service, and food that we ate here twice!

While not the best BBQ you will have, it is a good option in Atlantis. Family portions are huge and fun to share. One of the better beer menus at Atlantis. Service was a little slow but waiter had a great attitude and worked hard to serve us. On a nice night, ask to sit outside next to stingrays.

Overall it was ok. not worth the $85 bill for 2 people. Service was slow. I do not think I would return.
