Since they are known for their fried shrimp here, I got the 1/2 lb basket with fries and Texas toast. I was not disappointed. They were the sweetest, most tender shrimp I have ever tasted! Just delicious! We were here on a Fri afternoon around 3 PM and had no wait.

We ate at BJ’s and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We had the fried onion rings appetizers which were piping hot and very good. Most of our group split the shrimp platter (1 lb shrimp) between two individuals. The platter came with two sides. Some had the salad, while others tried the green beans or French fries. The fried shrimp were... More

B&J's Steaks and Seafood is just what we expected, a great place to eat the best fried shrimp on the Georgia Coast. We were hankering for fried shrimp and we were not disappointed. Yes, this place is not located by a tidal creek with seagulls and pelicans etc., but if just want to eat where the locals eat, this is... More

When life's adventures allow us to be within 50 miles, we always include a dinner or lunch at this local favorite. It is impossible for shrimp to be cooked and be any fresher!. The buffet always looks great - but I have only ever had the shrimp or the shrimp and oysters. The staff is eager to please and very... More

Wife and I saw the write up on Trip Advisor & decided to give it a try. They are right about NO ambience. That's of little matter because folks come here for the seafood. My wife had a grilled fish sandwich (flounder) and thought it was great. I had the buffet. The buffets vary per day. We were there on... More

Not the least bit fancy or pretentious...just good local fare and quick, attentive service. Other reviews here capture the spirit of the place and all pretty much "spot on". If you're looking for ambience or a fancy dining establishment this ain't the place for you, but if good food and friendly folks are what you're seeking it's definitely worth a... More

We stopped here based on a recommendation from a Lonely Planet road trip guide and were do glad that we did. You aren't stopping here for a fine dining experience, but this was by far the best seafood we had on our entire week-long vacation down the coast. The Surf & Turf was well worth the price. I see other... More

The dinners are huge! They can easily be split among 2 people. The batter on the shrimp is very light, the fried oysters are huge. The salad bar had a variety of fresh items and delicious blue cheese dressing. Waitress was very attentive and kept our glasses full. Would definitely go back.

Dine here for the freshest fried and steamed shrimp...NO atmosphere, strictly come here for the fresh seafood. The fish fillets were tasty also.. They were blackened and fried, you could choose...Well worth the drive from either the Jax or Sav areas...
