Barbara Jean’s is a family run restaurant that began in 1998 on St. Simons Island, Georgia, about fifty miles north of Jacksonville, Florida and 60 miles south of Savannah. We specialize in both seafood and made-from-scratch, southern and home-style cooking. As the Savannah Morning News said in July 2006, “It’s rare that a restaurant can pull off doing both seafood and home-style cooking and do both very well. We take great pride in what we do and know that the most important visit we get from you, our customers, is the next one, and we have to earn that today! The heart of Barbara Jean’s is the very real Barbara Jean. She is the creative force behind the recipes we serve and works every day. Other family members are every bit as active. There is little doubt that we are best known for our Crab Cakes, but our She Crab Soup, slightly mysterious “Chocolate Stuff” dessert and homemade breads have an aggressive following as well. This site can give you as detailed an insight into what we do as you could hope for, as well as our location and contact information, write-ups and reviews, We even give you a way to CONTACT US. ~Jim and Barbara Barta
