Restaurant details
Reviewed April 18, 2012

This delightful place blew our socks off. Yes, you're in a tiny "room" of a four-table restaurant with vinyl tablecloths, flies buzzing around a noisy ceiling fan, and possibly Judge Judy blasting from the TV set up in the corner but we couldn't have asked for a better first meal in Provo. We ordered the curry chicken and fried grouper plates complete with rice & peas and fried plantains--all of which would please the pickiest foodie. The food came out steaming hot from the kitchen and we devoured it happily, washing it all down with Coronas. While we were there we saw a couple locals come in to order lunch as well--always a great sign. Perhaps the icing on the cake was us realizing after we ordered that the Three Queens is cash-only (as many local places are in Provo), and having forgotten most of our cash in the hotel room, could only leave a $1 tip. The owner/cook was so gracious she told us not to worry about it and we were happy to return a few days later to leave a truly proper tip. Who else cooks customers a delicious lunch knowing you're only going to get a $1 tip??? This is located a bit far out past Da Conch Shack. It's a rather non-descript concrete building across the street from a conch vendor (you'll see the rows of shells gleaming in the sun) in a dirt parking lot. If you're looking to go where the locals go (i.e. like Smokey's, which we unfortunately didn't make it to), this is it. Balance it with a fancy candle-lit dinner somewhere else like CoCo Bistro and you'll experience the best of both worlds.

Had a great late lunch at Three Queens - off the beaten path in Provo - the food and
atmosphere was very local and outstanding! Dick had a fun little place - with wonderful
grouper, rice and coleslaw. Not to mention the t-shirts!!!! Worth the drive!

Dick made sure our large group was happy and Martha made sure we were well fed. Sit outside. The lovely beach is right across the street.

This is literally a "hole in the wall" type place. It is far away from the regular tourist area on Provo but that is one of the things we loved about it. We were on the island for a week and this is the absolute best food we had. The cook came out and told us the 4 things she had to make and we picked from those. I had the ribs and my wife had the fried lobster. Both were some the absolute best we have ever had! After that we had a couple drinks with the owner, Dick and a couple of his friends. If you are looking for a friendly place to meet locals and have real Caribbean food at a modest price, this is the place! I almost forgot, the view hardly gets any better than the view from 3 queens.

We were informed about this restaurant by someone at our hotel. It is way out on Blue Hills Rd directly across the street from the ocean and is well worth the trip. It's small with a limited menu, but the food is fabulous (we had pan fried fish and ribs), and the owner, Dick, is very friendly. I understand that you can watch them make fresh conch salad from conch taken right out of the water across the street, although we didn't do this. Highly recommend this place for true local flavor.
