Came by every day for lunch

This is a family run beach side spot that should be a part of your Harbour island trip. The conch is pulled right from the ocean, out of the shell, chopped up and on your plate in mere minutes. With fresh hot peppers, citrus and onion, it's delicious.

There are three things you need to know before going. 1. Service is on island time in a big way. 2. Bring your own beer. 3. They don't seem to have a restroom that I could find. As long as you go there knowing these things you will have a really good experience. The view is awesome. You can actually... More

I have been going to this spot for many years! This is a family owned and run business that is excellent! The staff members are very friendly and love to chat with customers. Be sure to try the conch salad and specify the amount of spice that fits your liking. I hate spicy foods so I order the mild conch... More

We went down before sunset, brought our cocktails and ice and sat on their deck. Sensational. We ordered fresh conch salad served by Nekia, our delightful waitress. We tried a very good Conch chowder, some cracked (fried) conch and chef Max' excellent blackened grouper. Loved it all. Tomorrow night we'll probably do it all again.

Had both a lunch and a dinner here and the food was great both times. The conch salad was awesome and well worth the wait. It's worthy of its great reputation and I miss it! Make sure to eat here when you're on Harbour Island.

The staff are great and service may be a little slow, but I am willing to wait, BYOB for fresh quality food.

Visited the island to kill time while waiting for a very delayed plane to arrive at the airport on Eleuthera. We were in no hurry, which was a good thing, as the wait was staggeringly long, every ingredient is painstakingly cut into tiny bites, no food processor here, every salad is freshly cut up when you order. However, who wants... More

After seeing great reviews on tripadvisor, decided to give it a go, and actually went three times, and have come away with some very firm views. Trip 1, visited with 4 others. Waited over an hour to get food, despite very few people in front of us. Great quality food, so wanted to go back. Trip 2, visited with 2... More

We enjoyed queen conch and can't wait to go back. We ended up sitting at the bar and talking to one of the owners. She was an elected official and we got the scoop on the family run business to everything happening on the island. EVERYONE (locals & visitors) eats here. There is a liquor store across the street that... More
