Great people amazing food

The pricing was very good, but you will have to wait since meals are prepared fresh. open mostly during the evening about 5 or 6 p.m.

They need to get the fish fry huts overhauled, the kitchens are not kept clean for food preparation. My standard of hygiene is high and normal as is expected. Sorry loved the bar tender but it gets a fat no I won't go back and you probably saying good but if all tourist think like me you will only have... More

This was one of our favorite spots at the fish fry, Mom treats everyone like her own, she is a truly a special woman. The cracked conch and cracked lobster was great, we also had her grouper fingers and Guava Duff (a Bahamaian dessert). This stuff was so good a must have if visiting the island.

Very good fried conch, until now the best in the island. Typical location in fry fish. Do not expect four season style service

This is where the locals eat! This was recommended from a local so you know it has to be good. Mama was so inviting and friendly! We ate with locals and visitors alike. The grouper fingers were incredible and fresh! Mama is also very generous on the servings of liquor! They will even make something special for you that is... More
