The iconic Barbara Jeans St Simons Island sits halfway between Jacksonville and Savannah, nestled in the heart of the Pier Village on Saint Simons Island.
A mecca for the faithful, Barbara Jean’s all-meat crab cakes are nothing short of divine, especially when served with southern veggies. As Barbara Jean works her kitchen magic, it is easy to order one of everything, especially the hand-battered Catfish, Shrimp, and She Crab Soup at this family-owned and operated coastal seafood diner.
If you are not a crab cake fan (gasp), don’t worry because there is plenty to tempt from the menu. Made-from-scratch, Southern-style cooking with a coastal flair such as the meatloaf, The BJ Blue Salad, or forever favorite shrimp and grits are a must. And for dessert, the choice is Chocolate and Stuff.
It is easy to see why Barbara Jeans St Simons Island was named one of Coastal Living’s Favorite Seafood Dives and is open for casual in-person lunch or take-out.
