Myself, my wife, mother in law and two friends decided to eat here after an afternoon of snorkeling. All of us were disappointed. Our friends got the fried grouper plates and were left hungry with little grouper found. My wife and mother in law shared the seafood platter, no lobster available however they gave them extra shrimp and conch. I... More

The conch salad was highly recommended by one of the local.We had the conch salad and thought it was good. But as we had other conch salad from other places, this conch salad was ok, but not as good as Bernie's. Bernie's was the best for us.

Went here after a local recommended it. Had a conch salad that was good but not the best (I prefer the way it's done in Nassau) and I had a side of rice-n-peas. I could have eaten the rice all day! My friend had a grilled chicken salad and a slice of mac. She shared the mac with me and... More

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!

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
