This was my first time visiting Nassau, but I am familiar with Caribbean foods because my family is from Jamaica. I was on the hunt of something casual, and not part of some fancy chain. I enjoyed the food here, it really did remind me...of being in at home. Food was delish!More

We had a lovely meal here. The conch salad is delicious and the mac and cheese is the best I have ever tasted. It was a shame we only got to go here once.

The food was delicious and large portions. But it is very pricey. Over $200 for a lunch for 4 people. Staff was friendly but a little slow.

I had lunch here at 3pm, not normally the busiest lunch hour, but the place was packed and servers running around (although not quite enough of them). The fish was fantastic and the sides and dessert also excellent, although it took awhile. The prices were...a bit high even for the area, but not outrageous. I was a bit miffed when they included the tip automatically as part of the bill, yet the credit card receipt didn't indicate this and left an open tip line.More

Not a gourmet experience, to be sure, but the food's better than what you might think from first glance, and the local vibe and people-watching are both terrific. The conch fritters are tasty, the snapper (grilled, not fried) was quite good, and the jerk shrimp...had a lot of flavor without frying one's taste buds. And there's little to dislike about sky juice. If you're looking for the fish fry experience, Twin Brothers is a good choice.More

The crack chicken was not crispy and it was bland. Same for the fish fingers. The mac n cheese is also very bland and not cheesy at all. The price for the quality is way overpriced. The Taxi driver recommended and he gets some stipend...for recommending the place. The service is very slow (and there were not many guests).More

My family and I ate here on our 2nd day in Nassau. We stayed at the Baha Mar and the Fish Fry was recommended by the local cab drivers. This place is definitely worth a stop. It was one of the top 3 recommended to...us. Food was good. Plenty to eat. Price was high in the $$$ but it’s comparable to everything else in the area. They take cards. Drinks are good too.More

I felt pressured to eat here by the guy who met our taxi that dropped us off. That should have been my first clue. I thought the entrees were pricey for a "fish fry" type of place. The food was not spectacular; it was not...bad - it was pretty average....and pricey. Won't be recommending it to anyone.More

There were 6 of us that dined. We were there when they opened. The restaurant itself was nice and clean. This is a bit pricey and the food was mediocre. Conch fritters were excellent. The service however was slower than slow. It took over an...hour to get our meal and when we initially ordered, there may have been 6 other people. By the time we got our food, the restaurant was busy so it took another 25 minutes to get our bill.More

20 minute walk. Cabs are everywhere though, so you don’t have to walk if you don’t want to.
