“Fresh Catch of the Day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

We stopped at the marina area about 5pm to buy fresh crayfish. It was quite interesting to see fishers cleaning their day's catches. Even better was eating the reasonably priced fresh seafood we took back home for supper.

“Most picturesque town on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

It's tiny so don't blink but if you drive through be sure to stop If anyone is one the dock selling fish. Then walk around and say hello to local kids and enjoy the colorful houses. Best seen while driving through to wherever your going, not a destination but part of the journey.

“picture perfect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

truly picture perfect town right on the water with historic buildings and friendly people. Fish available fresh from the sea from the fishermen who caught them. Interesting back streets to wander through

“Great Fresh Fish Right Off the Boats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We travelled from North Palmetto to purchase the "catch of the day" and were not disappointed. There was plenty of conch and grouper. The fisherman also filleted the fish for us. Great time, delicious fish!

“Reasonable Lobster”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Small little town with a dock where the fisherman come in. The lobster was less expensive than in Governours Harbour, ask for James! The town is very old with some interesting buildings to look at. There is also a strange castle here. If you get there before Christmas stop at the library and give a donation. The funds for the X-Mas party were wiped out and the children really count on it. They were so appreciative.
