When it's time to forget the stresses of life, this is where to do it!

I go to Doris's (Sunrise Restaurant) quite frequently throughout the year. I can't miss it when I am in the Bahamas. It makes my trip, honestly. Sitting there, by the ocean, drinking a Pina Colada is as good as it gets. Those are the absolute best Pina Coladas I have ever had. The food is very... read more

It might have been me but, the food was not that good....I GOT SICK. The waitstaff was a joke at best. The waitress brought out everyone elses food but mine. She forgot to put my order in. Didn't taste right when I got it. I got sick on the premises....they acted pissed. I was. NEVER AGAIN.

I had read online about Doris' Place - aka - Diamond Sunrise Restaurant & Bar - so when we arrived into Freeport on our cruise we rented a car and headed that way. Hands down the most MAGICAL place I have ever been. Diamond Sunrise is located on a secluded beach that is PRISTINE! Sand as soft as flour, water... More

This place was highly recommended and we were well received. It's kind of a shack on the beach, which was fine with us but the food was terrible. Highly over seasoned, poor quality...couldn't even eat the burgers. Go for a drink, wander on the beach but skip the food!

The day was started with our car rental (Island Jeep Car Rental), and a suggestion by Stanley to stop here. Since we wanted to see more of Grand Bahama Island, we headed out to this spot in High Rock. We ended up meeting Doris, who delivered the most delicious conch fritters and we had the beach area basically to ourselves.... More

My family was staying in Freeport for a week during March Break. After a couple of poor excursions ( avoid the glass bottom boat tour!!! ) we hired a taxi to take us on a tour to the park ( Gold Rock Beach ). During the tour our driver took us to the Diamond Sunrise for lunch. It was definitely... More

Great little restaurant on a beautiful beach. Doris makes the best cracked conch and lobster on the island. Even though it is out of the way -- need a car to drive to drive to High Rock -- we never miss it when vacationing in Freeport. Went twice on our most recent trip!

If you are a fan of bbq chicken & ribs or southern style food, this little diner on the beach at High Rock is a gem. Completely unassuming, you’re lucky to stumble upon it. The service is genuinely friendly. My only tip is to bring lots and lots of bug spray for the sand flies at dusk. The sides are... More

This is THE place to go if you want to experience the real Grand Bahama. The setting; right on the most beautiful deserted beach, is spectacular. The food is wonderful (especially the cracked conch and the ribs - in Doris' famous bbq sauce). But, its the warmth of welcome that really sets this place apart. Captain Vick and Doris make... More

I did a little research online before we left and found a number of people suggesting this place. We rented a car at the cruise terminal in Freeport and I asked the person renting us the car where he recommended we eat near Lucayan National Park. He ended up recommending the same place I found online, Diamond Sunrise run by... More
