    On a Monday night at approximately 8 PM, my husband and I came in to eat. We waited at the hostess station for 10 minutes without even the slightest acknowledgement. They weren't even busy so we walked out.

    A filling and enjoyable dinner. They have great pumpkin bread, yum, yum!! It was even hot like it was just baked!!

    It somewhat reminds me of a deli atmosphere but very comfortable. Service was good and friendly. Mom ordered the turkey dinner which she enjoyed. My daughter got the chicken tenders which she raved about but later started picking off the breading (just a little over breaded but good chicken).

    I had the crab cakes which they're known for and they didn't disappoint. I ordered 2 but could have gotten away with one as they were rather filling but lots of crabmeat and very little filler. I also had the broccoli and rice casserole which my daughter ate most of. It was delicious but since I was getting full I let her have a lot of it.

    Considering we were going to go elsewhere in the European Village that had a 1 hr wait I'm glad we decided on Barbara Jeans. It was a nice experience.

    I have been to this place a total of four times since the later part of January for lunch. The food has been excellent each time. Also the service has been great as well! I really could not ask for it to be any better. I read below that some people say the portions are too small... I don't think so! I go with usually four people or so and most of us end up taking home a "doggy bag". If you want big portions than go to a buffet and pig out.

    Yes, the place is somewhat small, however I think they made the best of the space to make it seem bigger with the different sections and if you have been in any of the other restaurants in the European Village they have a smaller feel than this one.

    I really don't understand all the hype about this place...its tiny ...and so are the portions. The crab cakes are ok... the "she crab" soup was good but nothing special. I liked the different breads that were served (good baking). The service was quite slow but we will try it again.

    My husband and I had gone to Barbara Jeans 2-3 times, crab cakes were best, sorry I tried the turkey! When I got the portion, it was smaller than a children's size. When I questioned it, I was first told that it wasn't right, then I was brought out an extra small plate with another 2 very small palm sized slices of turkey, as extra for the meal, because apparently their sizes ARE quite small, I was told afterwards. They weren't very friendly either.

    Our first visit to BJ's was wonderful. The food was fantastic and the service was excellent. After the first visit we returned expecting the same but the food nor the service were quite as good as the first time. However, we have recently made our third and last visit to BJ's. We ordered the special which was scallops and they were so "bitter" we could not eat them. When we asked if we could order something else we were not treated with much respect or concern. I hate to send anything back so it has to be bad and it was but our replacement order was not much better and the service was sooooooooo slow. I doubt if we will ever visit them again. Thank goodness there are other restaurants in the European Village which is a delightful place to visit.

    This is my new favorite place to eat. The food is awesome and the pumpkin and wheat rolls are to die for! I'd love to make some of that pumpkin bread at home but they don't have the recipe listed in the recipe book. I didn't give it 5 stars because I was cold and asked two people if they could shut off the ceiling fans with no avail. The portions are huge too!

    Went to Barbara Jean's for Sunday lunch and it was excellent. It was not crowded. The service was perfect and the food great. I just wish it had a more upscale look and I would have added a star. My husband had the special, spicy shrimp Creole, which came with two sides...he chose Cole slaw and corn. He loved it. I had an excellent fish sandwich which was crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. Instead of French Fries, I selected yummy mashed sweet potatoes. I had a drink from the bar which was also wonderful. This is a great place for seafood and we will be back again.

    Went to Barbara Jean's for lunch on 8/19/06 with my husband and Friends. We had an excellent time, and all of the food was great. It came out quickly, perfect to order with absolutely no problems. I had the 5 ounce crab cake and my husband had the fried fish. the squash is the best side they have and the pumpkin bread is addicting.

    Our server was a young man named Patrick. He was able to answer every question we had and was extremely funny. He lightened the mood was able to make the experience fun for us. I do not think there is any other server like him, he was even able to bring the owner Chris over to joke around and talk to us.

    We had such a great time we will be coming back and I hope every discovers Barbara Jean's. thank you for the great time
