Colleen was our bartender. She was very friendly and helpful. The beach at the bar is nice and would be good for a day trip in good weather. Happy hour 5-7 every day. Good drinks and the food was good as well. We shared a blue cheese burger w/ fries, chicken wings. Colleen shared zucchini fritter with us because they... More

We always stop here a few times when on the island, it's a great location, nice bar crowd right on the beach. It is not cheap, but not terrible either. They can be the normal GBI chaos though, as they don't take credit cards, and the other day they didn't have frozen drinks, conch fritters, or macaroni n cheese. All... More

$6.00 for a ballpark brand hotdog. Need I say more... The people are very nice though, and if you get in to your condo and are just too tired to go anywhere you'll pay whatever.

While staying in GBI my wife and I would meet some friends at the bar a couple of times.They have burgers and such but the have a foot long hotdog that is to die for! The bartenders forget they are pouring from a bottle sometimes and your drinks are outstanding! Walk it! Don't drive!

I was very pleased with my experience. It is owned by locals a mother and daughter was there serving us when we went. It is in a perfect location so when you are done eating you can go for a walk on the beach. I had the club sandwich and fries and it was really good. My wife had the... More

My family and I stayed at the Coral Beach condos, so visited this restaurant 3x. Service is Bahamian-slow, which is perfectly fine. Day service with the mother-daughter couple is fine but they are not friendly - we saw them both roll eyes, mutter and shrug with other customers, though they were fine with us. It was clear that they were... More

This is a favorite of many of the locals, although in four years we had never been there before. We went for lunch, the food was very good, tasty and fresh. The portions were large and the prices very reasonable. We will go back again. What we really enjoyed was the opportunity to take a nice walk down the beach... More

We found this restaurant to be one of the very best we went to on the island. The food was amazing and the view was as well. It was so good that we went back a second day. The only issue was that they do not always have all the menu items, especially the fresh seafood.

This is an outside pool side bar with tables for overflow. It is a little hard to find but if you ask someone at the registration desk at the Coral Reef Hotel, they can steer you to a parking lot near the bar. We were not as blown away as some have been in other reviews, nevertheless, the food was... More

Good food at a reasonable price. Fare includes conch fritters, burgers, lobster; an interesting mix, but we ate there several times as it was in front of our condo (Coral Beach) and everything we had was good. They play good music and it's a nice little area to kick back with a few drinks and hang out, day or night.... More
