I went to Billy Joe's one day and they were out of conch which was disappointing. I went again the following after reading good reviews. The conch salad was delicious and tender. So much better being so fresh! The cracked conch was the best I've ever had. Very flavorful, cooked perfectly and... read more

We talked it up with other guests and ended up getting the Lobster 4 times that week. We also had the Conch salad.... More

BEST CONCH SALAD ON THE ISLAND. You can even watch them go out on a seadoo and get some fresh conch.....I mean seriously. Get a spot at the bar, order some High Rock or Sands and watch the ninja master dice his way into you heart with a blend of tomato, onion, jalapeno, lime, fresh conch (its still moving) and... More

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.
