Had a fantastic dinner….we saved the best for the 4th of July, and we could not have made a better choice. The food was incredible…I had rum on everything - the rum punch was perfect. The rum cake with a side of vanilla ice cream...and raisins dipped in rum was the perfect ending to an incredible evening. The view was out of this world…the sunsets changed colors by the minute and the atmosphere of the outdoor restaurant was the perfect blend of island decor with pastel colors, surrounded by signs of sea life. And nothing beat the service from the entire staff…so friendly, welcoming and just absolutely fun! Our waitress, Wene, was the best of all, just really making you feel at home, joking with us the whole time, but always taking such great care of us. Please, if you find your way to these incredible islands, you have to try Da Conch Shack. And ask for Wene. Make reservations in advance and get a table during sunset. Awesome job, to the entire team! So much fun!More

Great beach casual atmosphere. Food was good and vibe was great. Music, band and entertainment. Tables in the sand and right on the water. Had the jerk chicken, very good. All the family had good meals. Rum punch was tasty.

Food was excellent. There was a live band playing as well which was a nice cap to an amazing experience. The cracked conch was delicious and my fiancée got the blackend grouper which was Divine. Definitely a must visit when you go to Turks and...Caicos.More

Can’t say if the food is good because we left without eating. We went to the highly sought after Wednesday night dinner for which you 100% need a reservation. After almost an hour of absolutely no one even acknowledging us, we flagged down who ended...up being our waiter who noted that he forgot we were his table. No apology and acted like we were in the wrong. They were out of what we wanted for dinner which wasn’t his fault but again, very unapologetic. Brought an alcoholic beverage that was supposed to be virgin. We requested the check to pay for our (incorrect) drinks - that took over 30 minutes. It’s also VERY important to note that he was nice and helpful to every other table around us. We also can’t speak to the Wednesday night fire show because we were completely blocked off by all the people who rushed in front of our table to take pictures and videos. For reference, we had the best seat in the house which is right on the edge of the water with a perfect view. On top of the bad experience, the atmosphere was completely overrated. We’ve never written a review before and we are very patient, kind people who understand mistakes happen. We’re very slow to anger and not much bothers us, but we left the conch shack extremely disappointed, angry and hungry.More

The best fish and conch ever! We had the best table, they all were great! Gorgeous view. The palm trees were nice for shade and a breeze.

We had conch fritters which were good. Ate here several times and each time the food was great. Conch steak is excellent as is all else there. Service by Karrah was the best and she was so sweet and full of suggestions on what to...see when we went to North and Middle Cays.More

My husband and i had the pleasure of having lunch at your establishment june 3rd. What can we say a must when visiting TCI, food and views were stunning, but what made it such a great stop was our server Karrah! she was genuine and...personable made our meal that much more special. Please ask for her and tell her the couple from Connecticut sent you.More

Our server forgot several things we ordered. Our food was disappointing. When paying the check it felt like she was trying to scam us into extra tip when gratuity was already added. She was very snotty when we asked to see itemized receipt rather than...blindly sign on handheld payment device. Not worth the hype.More

I made a comparisons between this place and Omar's on Omar's review. We gave the edge to this place. Two things set this back. The table he had had seen better days. We were put back under the shelter. Use lose out on the beach...feel. Tables on the sand were better. Live music Wed/Sun. They had a DJ. He was fine until he cranked up the music around 830pm. We could not hold a conversation. Playing island hip hop and dance club music. Play more Don't Worry Be Happy music. Our server abandon us at the end. Could not pay the bill. Had to get the owner/manager to help us. Meal, 2 adult drinks, conch fritters, kids meals with drinks and 2 fish entrees was $162 w tip. Food was good like Omar's, the place has a great feel and atmosphere. Though the locals told us Omar's was better we disagree. Based on the number of customers, I think they agreed with me.More

Wednesday night at da Conch Shack is a beautiful scene! Arrive around 7 and eat dinner (if you must) or have drinks (a better bet) along the ocean with a sunset streaked sky above. Honestly, the food is not great. Ours was cold to lukewarm...and not all that flavorful, and the rum punch packed no punch at all. So it's a testament to the vibe and fun of the place that we'd go back again and again. Why? The music! At 8 pm, the band arrives, dancing a conga-line from the beach's edge to the dance floor. They play live music (drumming the night we were there) for about 30 minutes, and then a DJ takes over the music while the guests take over the floor. Teens on up were rocking it out for hours, having such a great time! The staff is super nice and there's security everywhere (from parking to along the beach). Don't miss a photo op at the tire swing!More

We ate at Da Conch Shack as part of our Love Buggy Tour. Lunch was included. They served us a platter that consisted of grilled jerk wings, french fries, fried plantain, conch fritters, cracked conch and fish strips. The restaurant itself is a vibe. I...would definitely return and highly recommend!More

As a diehard Housewives fan this was my first stop in Turks and Caicos! It did not disappoint. The setting is so relaxing and chill, especially compared to some of the stuffier restaurants on the beach. The service was sweet and attentive and they gave...us the best reccos. Highly recommend the jerk chicken wings in addition to all the delicious conch options. We also loved the butter poached shrimp.More

Reservations highly recommended during peak hours. Was able to get a reservation at 8:45pm on a Wednesday night. Very energetic atmosphere with a DJ. Was pleasantly surprised when the hostess took me to my table that was located along the beachfront edge with tiki torches....I did not realize the restaurant was located on the water so this was a treat. Very crowded party atmosphere and service took a while but the food (Grouper fish) was delicious and very flavorful. Great place for a group or a couple!More
