Great view but very limited seating. Food was quick and tasty. Service was pleasant but not spectacular. Tables were not very clean but the beautiful view made up for any shortcomings.

In between Para-Saliling and our Banana Boat ride my daughter and I decided to take up our travel agents suggestion and visit Billy Joes. The food was cheap, drinks were plentiful, and except for...

The best conch salad on the island. Made fresh right before your eyes on the beach. The restaurant is beach front with great service and excellent views.

There were soooooooo many suggestions by cruise staff to visit this eatery that we couldn't resist! I've always wanted to try the conch sald(had conch fritters before, but never had the salad). Talk about authentic Bahamian cuisine. Everyone was smiling, welcoming and pleasant.

Cash only. Great conch salad to eat on a hot day. It is located by Memories resort. The Conch salad was prepared like ceviche. This is place to get a taste of fresh Conch on the island

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.
