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.

Found this at a taxi drivers recommendation. Very good food. Very fresh food. Prices are reasonable for Freeport. You get what you pay for. Very layed back. Service does take a while, but its because they are preparing it from live still moving critters. Try the conch salad.

We LOVE this place! Our goal is to eat here once per day while on GBI. Food can be pricey, but we think it is worth it. It is best to visit during off-peak dining times.

The food was very good but a little pricey. I had the conch salad one day then the seafood platter another day. Both were very good but Big Daddy Brown was much much better. What this place has going for it was it was located on the beach and you can sit and watch the ocean and people riding banana... More

We stopped here a couple of years ago on a cruise, and have been talking about ever since, so we had to go back. We skipped all the touristy stuff and took a bus straight there. Fresh conch fritters, great ocean view, drinks were stiff, even the cheeseburger was awesome. Order some food, enjoy the view and then take a... More

Delicious food right on the beach. Fast service and fresh conch cut up right in front of you. They have seating and tables but we set right on the beach and ate. They have some water sports rentals right by it so it made it even more better where we didnt have to go anywhere when getting off the cruise.... More

Great beach-shack on the beach next to the Memories resort. Friendly service and laid-back atmosphere. Our family tried the cracked conch and conch salad which were quick and tasty. Great spot to people-watch all the water sports and nearby tourists at the resort. There is a path to the shack/beach that runs next to police station.

Since there was so much written about this place on this and other websites we felt we had to go here. First and foremost this is a shack by a rocky beach. The official website states that they are located behind the Sheraton. There is no Sheraton in Lucaya. We took the path next to the police station (across from... More
