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.

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.

Voted the best meal of the week by all four in our party. Grouper fingers and fish burgers are to die for.

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

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

I am not sure of the lady who took my order, but she was so inviting and home like, there was no way I could not give a write up on the place. She cracked jokes, the people came around and were very inviting even though I was from out of town, the breeze from the ocean here was crazy... More
