Enjoyable experience

Nice atmosphere, good service, good food, fair pricing. Coconut biscuits were delicious to start the meal. Food was cooked to order and special diets were accommodated. Nice view of the water in the main dining room.

Nice restaurant on the Bell Channel with views of the channel. A little noisy, as the bar is in the restaurant also. Limited options on the menu, we had ribs ($15) that were tasty and tender - good portions, coconut shrimp not so good (batter too heavy), shrimp and grits - excellent, quite rich - Shamene was our server and...

Overcast, windy, cool day. We decided to get away from our resort and it's mediocre food and took a taxi to the Bell Channel Inn for late lunch. Very polite waitress seated us promptly in the dining room overlooking the channel. Three of us ordered fish (Mahi Mahi and Snapper), and the fourth ordered pork chops. One individual has an...

Very welcoming and polite waitress. We chose Mahi Mahi from the specials menu, cooked blackened. It was delicious. We were offered coconut Johnny cakes, also delicious. Very good value for money.

Used trip advisor to locate restaurants close to our apartment. We were pleased to find Upstairs. The waitress was polite, efficient and friendly. The food was hot, tasty and included local dishes. We tried Mahi Mahi from the specials. Locals dine here which is always a good sign. Very reasonable prices for food and drinks.

We always have a very good meal at the Upstairs Restaurant & Bar. It is a family business that provides home cooked meals with exceptional service. Charmaine and all the staff are very pleasant and personable. The menu has a good selection of salads, main courses and deserts. We highly recommend a visit to this establishment. You won't be disappointed.

My husband and I ate in the Upstairs restaurant several times during our Bahamian vacation. We had breakfast there twice, a take-out lunch once, and dinner twice. It's just so convenient to have a restaurant right up the stairs. The food was really good, although nothing to fawn over. Prices were in line with other restaurants we ate at on... More
