My girlfriends and I were on our way to Da Conch Shack for dinner (we'd heard so many great reviews) and upon arriving we noticed this place next door. Oddly this place was not on the maps we were given earlier in the week. There was a funny sign in the parking lot of Da Conch Shack pointing to Horse-Eyed Jacks that said "$4 beer, cheaper food." We thought it was funny and kind of rude, but unfortunately we learned it was right.
We were having our last dinner on the island at Da Conch Shack and were going to do apps., drinks, dinner, and dessert. Conch salad, and rum punch were delicious! The special Mahi was terrible, but the grouper dinner was delicious. Unfortunately 2 of us made the mistake of ordering Mahi. We asked if we could order something else since it was overly fishy tasting and rubbery. Unfortunately they couldn't do anything at the time so we finished everything but the Mahi which we each took a bite of. At the end of the meal they offered to take one of them off our bill. This was very nice, but at that point we didn't want dessert.
Once we paid our bill we walked to Horse-Eyed Jacks. The view is lovely, the place is extremely clean, menu is actually cheaper with some diverse options, and drinks were cheaper. The darn sign was right. We ordered drinks and dessert here and enjoyed everything so much we stayed for a few hours and watched the sunset. If we had known what we know now we would've had our entire dinner here.
