As a group of four traveling adults, we frequented Bimini Road a number of times during our stay in the Bahamas. Located right in Marina Village, it's amidst the shopping and some other restaurants and really has that traditional-Bahamian flare to it. There's outdoor seating, usually a live singing duo in the afternoon and evening, and a very good menu selection for anyone looking for a casual dining spot.
First time we visited, we did mostly drinks on a Saturday night. Live band was playing and the place was quite busy. We were fortunate enough to grab a table on the outdoor patio and it was great to sit, drink and watch everyone walk through Marina Village. The drink selection is vast - there's an entire page of mixed drinks priced between $9-$11, and all are well-served. Shots are not really shots - they are more like half-cups of whatever you order. A shot of SoCo w/lime was more like half a cup of SoCo and for the price of $6/shot, well-served.
On another visit, we enjoyed some mid-day lunch, ordering:
Conch Fritters - Absolutely delicious, a must if you visit. For $9, you get about a dozen served with dipping sauce. They were great because you could actually see and taste the conch. Definitely worth trying.
Jerk Wings - also delicious, not too spicy, and served with dipping sauce, $10/eight full drums and wings. Sounds weird to eat wings on an island, but the sauce/spice makes up for it.
Shrimp Cocktail - great, but how can you mess this one up?
Other observations - burgers are large, served with fries; conch soup is tomato-based, served with bread-like side; salads are large;
I'd say the only downfall of this restaurant is the service. Our waitress was friendly, but rather unattentive. Some of our questions seemed to annoy her. In several instances, we found ourselves looking for her and waiting at length for what we had ordered or for the bill. At one point, one of us even said, 'don't order anything else because you'll wait too long for it..."
Other things to note - the restaurant is open late (into the morning) most nights, except on Sunday's when it closes at 11. Plantains are on the menu, but only as a side and only served at dinner time. We asked for them at lunch time, but were told our special request could not be met, per the Chef. Fine with us, as they were clearly not on the lunch menu, but perhaps something they would've been able to accomodate with minimal difficulty.
Overall - great experience, great place, would definitely recommend and would definitley go there again.
