“Local Flavor”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Four of us were on A Carnival Cruise and were looking for a spot "where the locals eat". A person in the immigration office recommended McKenzie's. We took a .75 cent bus ride to Potter's Cay Dock and found the restaurant. We were given an menu encased in a well worn plastic sleeve (I'm sure the locals get a different menu with lower prices). Two of the four of us had the conch platter - fried conch with a whole fried red snapper on the plate. Both were delicious. The snapper was perfect and the conch was had a light batter and was very tender and tasty. We sat on the stools in the back that overlooked the bay. Mr. Bill enjoyed it too.

“WOW. JUST WOW”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

There's a reason why locals go here and highly recommend. This stand is amazing and McKenzie is a very cool guy. Seems always busy and they run out of food so arrive early. Tried their grouper and fries, good stuff. Cracked conch and shrimp. Huge portions. Conch fritters were very tasty. The winner is McKenzie making his conch salad. The day we visited he was doing tropical salad which was fresh cut pineapple, mango, onions, salt and conch and hot peppers. It's just amazing. We got the Atlantis employees all jealous getting their local food.

“Fresh, Fresh, Fresh!”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Mr. McKenzie will pull the conch right outta the water right there when you order it. He makes the conch salad in front of you, and all the ingredients are fresh - delicious! He is under the bridge, 2nd restaurant.

“Fantastic Conch. Local ambience”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

For $13, had the best cracked conch ever. Also had the "scorched conch". Which is conch ceviche with onions and a spicy lime dressing. WOW. Pulled from the shell

A must!
