“Go if you are ploanning to eat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

There is not much here, several small colorful kiosks with local food. They have a shared public bathroom across the street.
Allow more time if you are planning to stop and eat.

“THE Place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Ok, DO NOT EAT AT THE HOTELS! The 'fish fry' is the place to eat. Its only $1.25 bus ride to get here from anywhere on the island and the food is just fantastic no matter what vendor you choose. Make sure you try the conch!

“It is called the Fish Fry”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

This is a neat little area with about 15 local flavor restaurants that all sell the same type of food. You can have snapper, conch, shrimp or group either fried, broiled or grilled. Same basic menu at all the places. We ate at Twin Brothers twice (a top rated place on Trip Advisor) and had good food both times. The grilled Snapper was exceptional as was the broiled Grouper. However, they only want cash. Do not think you will be able to charge here.
