After querying several employees on our cruise and then some employees at Atlantis, we were told to eat here. Good recommendation!

The taxi from Atlantis seemed to understand when we said we wanted to go "under the bridge" and dropped us off at a lights right in front. There weren't any tourists around, just locals, but everyone was nice and took care of us.

Food isn't cheap. Most platters run around $20. We wanted to really sample everything so we spent close to $100 including drinks, conch salad (huge!), fried fish, shrimp, and other seafood.

We grabbed a spot at a outdoor table/bench and chowed down. We shared our booth with another family because there was little space and we were only two.

The trickier part was hailing a cab out of there. Many of the "local guys" offered to get us a ride, which was a little disconcerting, but we gained our courage and were dropped off at the cruise port. Whew!

Definitely would go back. I have dreamt about that fish since.

We just returned from a cruise visiting Nassau. We've been to the island many times, but this is the first time to McKenzie's.

Their fresh conch salad with fruit is amazing. The portion is enough for 2 people and they make it while you wait. It takes some time, so you need to be patient. But it's worth the wait x 10.
Great tasting, super fresh and friendly service.
Will definitely visit McMenzie's again next time we're on the island!

The Fresh Conch Salad here is amazing. I particularly enjoy the the scotch conch (conch with onions, lime and pepper) scrumptious! The cooked food is good too - but I usually stick with the fresh conch dishes.

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.

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.
