Definitely the best native food you can find! The BBQ sauce is one of a kind, ribs and chicken grilled to perfection over a live charcoal grill. My family and I enjoy it regularly... We usually go to the location on Mackey St. its just minutes from Paradise Island bridge. Love, Love, Love IT!!!!

We all come here for takeout and we do it often. Sometimes they have run out of this or that but there is always something to substitute and we all one back. Good value.

I love their BBQ Ribs and sides of macaroni, peas & rice, and coleslaw. Great sense of a home cooked Bahamian meal.

We had lunch at Bertha's and enjoyed curry chicken and pork ribs. The peas and rice are not to be missed and the loving hand of a skilled chef is at work here. We felt loved and had a wonderful time. Atmosphere is of a lunchonette, but the service is friendly and the food wonderful. Best value in Nassau!

This restaurant is located in the upstairs of the straw market downtown. Don't let the looks of it scare you off( think plastic lawn tables and chair). Get there earlier than latter for your lunch, they run out of items quick. We had the pork ribs, some of the best ribs I've ever had(and I live in Texas and grew... More

well bertha's use to be really good, but, they have gotten sloppy, now, i don't know what went wrong, am disapointed that they don't focus, more on salads not just the fatty stuff, and in the tossed salad some great salad veggies,

The atmosphere was ok, but it definitely felt like a locals type of place and the folks working there were very nice and... More
