This is a go-to spot for a great lunch at a beautiful spot by the ocean. I usually enjoy the honey garlic wings or a blackened fish wrap.

We ate here while on vacation in the Bahamas and staying in a nearby condo. The service is excellent-very attentive and the food was delicious. Availability of items varies according to the season. When we dined here, shrimp and lobster weren't available. They were also out of some of the appetizers and sides. We did enjoy what we ordered. Just... More

Beautiful beach; a little hidden so we asked our taxi driver to recommend a place. He took us here and it was a terrific day, well spent! What a great lunch. Delicious food and charming staff! This comes highly recommended.

Service can be slow, food is good but not a great variety. Staff very friendly, but atmosphere not as friendly as in the past.

We stopped in for a light lunch while walking on the beach. We sat at the bar and were not even acknowledged for awhile. They were out of fish and lobster salad. The slight menu left us with little choice. My husband had a club and I tried some local fare. His sandwich was excellent. Mine, well I give it... More

Didn't know what to expect from the poolside bar. The first night we ate there I received excellent conch fritters and blackened grouper. Happy Hour prices on the drinks are great too. The second time we showed up, they had no fish, none. We made do with a burger and chicken fingers, which was also tasty.

We were staying at Coral Beach and didn't feel like calling a cab, catching a bus, or cooking. So we went to what we heard was an award winning restaurant. The positives: Very convenient as we were staying there anyway Beautiful weather for outside dining Reasonable prices Friendly staff The negatives: Cash only - we have stayed at Coral Beach... More

This casual beach bar is not fancy, but the food is excellent and the staff couldn't be more friendly. Fresh-caught snapper was the special the night we dropped by. We've never had better cole slaw or fried plantains, the wine is poured generously, and the prices are very reasonable.
