We've been to Marsh Harbour a number of times and once we discovered Wallys we always plan to go there at least one time during a trip. Especially at night it is very charming. Cloth table cloths, low lights, tasteful landscaping, Bahamian architecture and finishes. The servers are first rate. If they are there, request Anna or Keva (pronounce Keh-va).... More

A warm June evening. Took an old Abaconian friend here for dinner. Traditional and pretty building serving fairly traditional Bahamian food. The greeting was a tad off-hand although we had booked, compared to other Abaco restaurants we've been to. Pleasant outside seating. Starters: a tomato-based version of conch chowder - good and tasty. Veggie tempura nothing special. Mains: Abaco seafood... More

We were a little disappointed when we tried to get in Wally's the first time as we had popped in to make a dinner reservation only to be told that we didn't need to and then were turned away cos it was busy and, hey, we should have made a reservation! Doh.......we finally got in and the food was great,... More

We love going to Wally's for lunch on one of our jaunts to Marsh Harbour from Treasure Cay. Sitting outside on the covered verandah is such a delight! Probably the best Conch Chowder and Goombay Smashes on the island, and their other conch and fish selections are top notch. I think I am now addicted to their Truffle Fries!

A must stop for dinner in Marsh Harbor. They have been in business since the mid-1980's and the employees are one big happy family. This is reflected in the wonderful service and atmosphere. The menu is varied and supplemented with daily specials. We were so impressed with our meal we went back the next night and not disappointed. Try the... More

Wally's rather sums up Marsh Harbour - past its heyday - average food, overpriced and underwhelming. I read the history of the founder ( Wally ) and its a good story that someone needs to honour a bit better....

There is something for everyone at Wally's which is great - most places around town have fish, conch, chicken sandwich/fingers and a burger but Wally's had the broadest menu we've encountered thus far which was really nice. We ordered the conch fritters - heavy batter and tasty, Curried Coconut Chicken skewers with peanut sauce - so tender and yummy -... More

Wally's is one of my top five places to enjoy lunch in the world. It's ambiance is a bit of an old English throwback but in a very comfortable way. The soup is delicious, the club is absolute perfection, and the brownie topped with ice cream doing the breast stroke in a sea of hot fudge is over the top!... More

Our first day of vacation, we decided to try Wally's for dinner. Although we weren't really hungry, we went in anyway. We were greeted by a waitress with the most pleasant smile who then showed us to our table. We ordered drinks and Appetizers rather than Entrees from the menu as we were not sure we would be able to... More

For decades, Wally's has been the top dining spot in Marsh Harbour, not a small accomplishment given the variety and quality of restaurants in this high end tourist town. The food continues to be top notch and the ambiance stands out as the place is based in a charming old building. The staff are friendly and welcoming, the drinks supercharged.... More
