We ordered a dish of conch fritters, which cost $5 for 10. When asked if 10 is all we get, they added another five for the same price. They were delicious. And the price compared to a restaurant where we again ordered conch fritters where we got 7 for $10, this is a great deal and better tasting

We've been coming here for years and can't believe we never found this guy, although he's moved up from a table on the pier to a little shack. Fresh. Fried conch and lobster was very good. Need to go back for some conch salad.

The conch salad is so good: conch mixed into a fresh tomato salsa with lots of lime. I thought $10 was expensive, but it's fresh and delicious. Also, everything nearby seems to cost much more and isn't as good.

This place seems to be called a lot of things, but Big Daddy Brown Conch Stand is the only writing on the place (see accompanying pictures). To be clear, it is a shack on the waterfront on the edge of the ‪Port Lucaya Marketplace. This is just a tiny shack with a very limited menu and making use of nearby... More

Cool little place and way cheaper than the restaurants surrounding it. Lying in the back of the Lucayan Marketplace on the water sits this little stand. You'll know it on site and there will probably be a few locals in line. Only worth getting here is the conch salad. It's fresh, large enough for two and the price is right,... More

While visiting a friend at the marina he suggested we try the conch. Personally I dont care for conch but on that day he had lobster tails,so i ordered the large. It was the biggest caribbean lobster tail I ever had. Tender,juicy and quick. Along with some conch and fritters it was enough for appetizers for 6.

Small shack in the market that makes deadly Conch fritters, fried conch and lobster tails. This is a very simple but delicious Bahamian must try.

On a recent trip to Freeport, we noticed Big Daddy Brown's Conch Shack (right after eating lunch elsewhere!), and decided that we needed to go back. Having had fresh conch salad on another Bahamian island, we were greatly looking forward to repeating the experience. While I will say that it was good, for us it did not compare in freshness...

This place is pretty good and pretty cheap. Conch fritters here are not any worse than anywhere else on the island but they are half the price for double the amount. Good for a quick lunch.
