About Barbara Jean's Restaurant & Bar

Barbara Jean’s is a family run, multi-unit restaurant operation that began in 1998 on St. Simons Island, Georgia. We specialize in both seafood and made-from-scratch, home-style cooking.   The heart of Barbara Jean’s is the very real Barbara Jean Barta. She is the creative force behind the recipes we serve and works every day in one restaurant or another. 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.
