Barnes Restaurant

Since 1975, Barnes has done barbecue the old-fashioned way — smoked slow over oak and hickory wood to bring out the finest flavors for their famous pulled pork, rib, and brisket dinners. But barbecue is only part of the story: Barnes offers something for every appetite — chicken comes... straight from the rotisserie or crispy fried with Barnes’ signature blend of spices, and fresh fish is always on the menu. There’s even a house specialty just for seafood lovers: The Georgia Shrimp Dinner, a basket of eight or 12 giant butterflied shrimp caught right here off the coast. Lunch favorites include shrimp salad sandwiches made from Wild Georgia shrimp, po’ boys and the Original Chicken Finger Salad chock-full of crisp veggies and perfectly seasoned white meat chicken. Sides are delectable takes on Southern traditions like collard greens and red rice; don’t miss the homemade potato chips and the meaty Brunswick stew, an original Barnes family recipe. Kids and those looking for a lighter meal will find plenty of delicious options. Call ahead for takeout, and keep Barnes’ party platters and buckets of sweet tea in mind for your next gathering. This is fine Southern cooking served up by friendly people who love the food as much as their customers!
