It was really awesome. We also had some of his famous conch fritters. We were the envy of the bus when we opened up our "to go" box. Wish we would have had more time but we had to get back to the cruise ship. His conch salad looked wonderful too.

It's a well known fact among locals that you only eat conch salad that you watched be made. This way you know it's fresh and the conch hasn't been sitting out in the heat spoiling.

Just wanted to try the salad that everyone was raving about, $10 US for a container, raw conch, nothing special, I found it to be a bit bland, . Worth trying though. The owner is very funny

Lightly battered, perfectly seasoned, fried to perfection fresh lobster tails… WOW!!! We went several times over our weeklong stay and just could not get enough of it. 2 fresh lobster tails for $15.00. Stop by, get the lobster, grab a beer and be happy!!!!! Definitely a MUST while visiting.

This guy makes it right in front of you and it is the freshest you will get straight out of the shell into a lime and ice water bath and then prepared right there. if you want a little zing make sure to ask him to add plenty of goat pepper!!!!!!!
