This was our favorite spot to grab lunch. How much conch salad can you eat in a week? Not enough. Who knew? The sour oranges, fresh conch plunked from the ocean beyond the conch shack, mixed up with peppers, tomatoes, onions, a long squeeze of lemon, a careful dab of hot sauce and you are on your way. Eat there... More

We had conch fritters, fish, and of course, their excellent conch salad. Everyone was friendly, but our service was beyond lousy. Our waitress forgot to put in our conch salad orders, and got yelled at by a manager. Our waitress then put the order in incorrectly, and got yelled at again when it was realized. All in all, it was... More

Lunch here is a must do. There was live music on a Saturday - wonderful. The conch salad was great but spicy - we went for medium and would have enjoyed mild even more. The fish wrap was spectacular. I loved the drill of getting the beer across the street - all part of the fun.

We have been to Harbour Island several times but this was our first time at Queen Conch. We were very disappointed. First, no fresh conch so no conch salad. Okay, we would try something else. I ordered the grouper fingers and my husband ordered the lobster salad. We also ordered some conch fritters for an appetizer. After the fritters, they... More

My husband and I ate at Queen Conch almost every day for lunch while we were on our honeymoon. We were there so often that I didn't need to give my name for the order after the 2nd time. Great people, great food. Awesome place!

We liked this place so much that we ate there every day. No joke. I don't know what other reviewers mean by being disappointed in the atmosphere. It could NOT have been better! Yeah, you bought your beer across the street but that was part of the fun! This is not a "sit down" restaurant with menus and tablecloths. It's... More

The Conch Salad is fresh and taste great; all the flavors work perfect. The Grouper sandwich was also great. This place is on island time, which I love! The service is super friendly and we had a great lunch with a couple of cold Kalecks (we got from Beyond the Reef). First timers to this place, do not be afraid... More

First, the food was wonderful. Truly. However, a couple things to be noted. This is a roadside shack with seating on a dock over the water. To get any alcohol you walk across the street yourself and buy it at a store. All of that would be ok, however the prices are NOT that much better than going to a... More

We were looking forward to a great lunch experience after reading all the wonderful reviews. Unfortunately, during out lunch, there was a very loud preacher out front and the restaurant itself was under construction. It really lessened our enjoyment. The food was wonderful. The spicy shrimp and conch salad were out of this world. Some of the food best we... More

We ate here four times in our trip, and every time it was delicious. I recommend the blackened mahi, conch fritters, lobster tail, and key lime pie. The prices are good and the food is the best I had while on the island! Yum!
