Conch salad is delish!

This place is a must try if in Freeport. Had fritters and conch salad. Conch salad is superb! My friends did not care for conch that we had somewhere else but after eating here, they really liked it. Would highly recommend a visit to this place!

Food and service was great! The wings, chicken sandwich, and pina coladas were awesome. The staff was so kind and welcoming.

Went there after an excursion trip from a cruise and on the recommendation of the shuttle driver. Good walk from the Straw Market to the beach (and it is on the beach). It was supposed to have the best authentic Bahamian food but the only thing we saw different from any other hamburger joint was the Conch Burger and Conch... More

This is the hidden jewel on the beach. If you do water sports you will end up here. Best drinks and try the red snapper on the grill. Amazing!! Was under repairs and we ate at picnic tables under tarps. That only added to the experience for us. Also loved the cracked conch and lobster. Yes, that's what I said!

We walked from the Grand Lucayan Resort to try out this beach side stand. And, we were so glad we did. We started off with large, heavily sauced pina coladas. We shared a fried seafood platter which included fried lobster, shrimp, conch, grouper, and fries. I love the batter that they use. It is so tasty. We thoroughly enjoyed everything... More

Billy Joes is just a few yards from Memories. The pina coladas ($9 each) are truly amazing! My son and husband had the conch and they said it was great! I noticed that private tour guides with clients from the cruise ships - brought their clients here for the conch salad and pina coladas.....think that says it all. I should... More

My wife and I ate lunch at Billy Joe's and it lives up to the reviews. It is just steps away from Memories Resort and the Grand Lucayan and evidently is on the path from the beach access parking lot to the beach. We shared the seafood platter which was plenty food for the two of us. It had fried... More

We had the cracked conch and cheeseburger it was good too. The cooks were friendly we watch them pull conch right out of the shell. We loved it.

The folks at Billy Joe's make you feel like family. Get a coconut from Don the Coconut man and Bonny's folks will add a little something to it. Then get conch anything or just the Wings and Fries. Put your sandy feet up on the rail and imagine never going home.
