We were staying at My Lucaya, and we asked the lady that hands out the towels "If you were to go have a meal of your own, where would you go"? Same question asked to several beach salespersons, and the answer turned out to be unanimous: Simply Native. We took a taxi ("Are you sure you want to go there?... More

okay, this place is not five stars but what I wanted was food that tasted like it was made by someone's mom and that's what I got. Delicious home cooking that my mother would have been proud to call her own. I really wanted the oxtail but by the time we got there they were sold out, oh well. Instead... More

This is an out of the way restaurant in Grand Bahama. My friends and I (4 couples) took a cab, and the taxi driver asked "you sure you want to go there ?" We asked "is the food good" He told us "real good, but very Bahamian and we don't get many tourists !" Perfect for us . The decor... More

Simply Native is one of my favorite eateries in Freeport! If a spot is frequented by the locals, then I want to eat there. There is something for everyone. Great spot for lunch. Good value!

If you have time, you need to check it out. It is a locals dining spot. Boil fish, stew fish or conch or chicken, johnny cake and grits. Need to roll with the flow, not all foods available all the time, but if you're adventuresome you'll be happy with the flavour!

We only found this place because of the reviews here. Like other reviews have said, don't judge this place on the outside appearance. We ate here once on our trip. It was a great experience and we would definitely go back. I had the cracked conch and my husband had the friend lobster. The food and service were both very... More

Just had lunch here and scraped the plate. Really enjoyed the baked chicken and fried plantains. The inside setting is basic yet comfortable and we found the service friendly. Not really a tourist's place but go for the authentic cooking. We would go back

Nothing earth shattering, just good local food. I had a fried whole snapper with good sides. My wife had lamb and it was also really good. What was also nice is its CHEAP. There is a lot of overpriced food in Freeport and this place is a good value. Its a pretty barebones place but if you want a good... More

Short Taxi Ride from Pelican Bay $14 dolllars each way. Don't worry about the outside appearance. It is clean and the service was good even. We don't run with the crowds and tourists so it was a quiet night at Simply Native because everyone else was at a Fish Fry on the beach. The food was solid and authentic. Baked... More
