Barbara Jeans is a wonderful, comfortable, local restaurant on the waterway a short drive from Ponte Vedra. Memorable, friendly wait staff and terrific comfort food. I had a fried catfish sandwich which was superb. My wife was equally pleased with her codfish sandwich. Generous, delicious and reasonably priced drinks complimented our visit. It will always be on the " automatic... More

We are from Maryland and can't find good crab cakes outside the Eastern Shore. We found them here!! Off the beaten track but worth the short drive.

Loved the food - and the waterfront setting. Get there early so there's no wait. Potato and cheese soup was delicious.

This restaurant, located on the waterway, offers a wide selection of Southern specialties, a variety of home baked breads and side dishes. It is a pleasant change from most of the restaurants in the area. The chicken tenders, available regular or pecan breaded or buffalo style, are the best around. Side dishes are all homemade and the pumpkin and corn... More

The food here was ok, pretty typical Southern food. It seemed a bit over priced for what it was. The crabcakes were good, the rest was kind of a disappointment. All of the sides were WAY over cooked.

We had dinner at Barbara Jean's a couple weeks ago. My husband and I both had their crab cakes and they were excellent and we'd highly recommend them. You will get plenty of bread and sides, so you won't go away hungry! The weather wasn't good for sitting outside, so we ate in.

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
