Dining area very dirty makes one wonder about the cleanliness of the kitchen. Lacks atmosphere and way too small.

B&J’s Steak and Seafood in Darien is our favorite place for shrimp. We were there twice in January and again in early February. We will be there again. We took our son and daughter-in-law to B&J’s on Feb 4, a Saturday night. We arrived at 4:30 knowing just how popular the buffet is. Even at that early time, our wait... More

Had the buffet. Everything was delicious and hot. This is a gem of a little place. Huge shrimp. Tasty and tender ribs. Very fresh and well supplied salad bar. Excellent service.

Stopped off here whilst driving on US17 as I'd been recommended the fried shrimp as "the best around". Certainly the place is popular with locals, it's good value price and portion wise and the shrimp basket with fries were tasty. Friendly service. It might be pushing it to say that they are the best around as this part of Georgia... More

I have to say the food is great and worth the drive. The service was good and pleasant. We came on a Friday night and as always, there was a line. Also, crab legs are on the buffet but in my opinion it's very expensive for crab legs at $35 all you can eat. Don't get me wrong, as I... More

Where do I go for my birthday dinner? B&J's! It's about a 30 minute drive for us and in the evening there can be a wait but it is worth waiting for. I am a local and well know great fried shrimp. These are the best. As a matter of fact, literally everything here is delicious. Many do not realize... More

OK... So B&J's is a little hole in the wall local place...but it's always packed! It's a local favorite, a destination for people from surrounding towns, and a well kept secret for tourists who are "in the know". Darien is known for local fresh caught shrimp and you won't be disappointed with the nightly buffet. It's small but there are... More

We have enjoyed fried shrimp here for many years! Normally we get the 1 lb of fried shrimp dinner. Occasionally, we get the buffet. Unless you are absolutely starving, you won't be able to eat everything!

I have been to B & J's about 5 times toto. Only once was it good and that was when we had a shrimp basket. That was good and not expensive. I have been for breakfast and after sitting right there in front of the cashier and kitchen door for 25 minutes with no service I got up and left.... More
