I’ve been there before and this trip was no different. You need to pick and choose your food wisely. Somethings - like the beans and rice - are delicious. Others - the turkey - are not so great. I had the jambalaya at the suggestion...More

I grew up going to my hometown's meat-n-three and Barbara Jean's reminded me of the best of that: broccoli & rice casserole, squash casserole, and excellent dirty rice. PLUS, one of the best crab cakes that I've had in a long time...all crab, no filler,...More

We ate here and the food was good but average. I had eaten at a Barbara Jeans in Beaufort before but this was not as good. It seems to be a popular place and location was convenient.

Homemade wheat rolls, jalapeño corn bread and pumpkin bread! Eastern shore 7 oz style lump crab 🦀 meat, buttermilk batter fried shrimp 🍤. Squash casserole a must side. Chocolate Cobbler is to die for 🤗 Historical photos everywhere and great booth seating.

Can't say enough about the crab cakes here!! Fantastic! Great place for lunch. And if you want an adult beverage, Barbara Jean's Sweet Tea is the way to go!

Good mix of seafood, sandwiches, vegetables and just about anything else. Service was very good too. I wondered in for a good lunch, but I think it would be a good place for dinner as well.

I don't believe they take reservations. Just get your name on the list and enjoy shopping at the shops at the pier while you wait!
