What a Fantastic restaurant on the beach! Can't get any fresher seafood than this! The view and the food to die for! Try a Rum Punch, make sure you order a large one! I personally suggest the Seafood Platter! WOW! When you leave... Have a Rum Coconut! Can't wait to go back! The BEST!

They were getting ready to close when we arrived but went ahead and served us. The food was great. I had never tried Conch and it was great.

We enjoyed the Seafood Platter so much that we had it two days in a row. The food is VERY fresh and reasonably priced compared to other local joints. The atmosphere is fun and casual being right on the beach. If you're in the neighborhood, you can't go wrong with this one. The only drawback is cash only - no... More

This place is right on the beach and they will prepare the conch salad while you watch. It was outstanding!! And the fried grouper was wonderful!! Don't miss it.

I went to several restaurants during my visit to Freeport. If you REALLY want the island food experience, this is the place to go. The seafood platter was AMAZING.

I had a great time at this place. Your on the water it's a lot of fun and they pour a mean piña colada. I ate plenty of conch in freeport but their conch salad and cracked conch was by far the best. They cut it seasoned it and tenderized it better than anywhere. The staff there was so friendly... More

Had a midafternoon "snack" of red snapper, fries, and a large bahama mama. Cost $24 and included tip. So great!!! This is the authentic meal we were looking for. Fish was so fresh and cooked to perfection. Don't miss this spot, even if you are at the all inclusive next door!!

Incredibly busy for good reason. Bustling sea-side location with a great view and fresh conch. Friendly and quick service.

You truly haven't experience Grand Bahama until you have been to Billy Joe's! Billy Joe's started out 30 years ago with a little shack and metal table and now the restaurant has quadrupled in size! They have the best conch salad on the entire island and the hog snapper is fantastic too! Such a lively place even after the passing... More
