This is an out of the way restaurant in Grand Bahama. My friends and I (4 couples) took a cab, and the taxi driver asked "you sure you want to go there ?" We asked "is the food good" He told us "real good, but very Bahamian and we don't get many tourists !" Perfect for us . The decor is like a bar in Saskatchewan or North Dakota, dark with worn out tables and chairs. The staff is friendly and efficient, and they don't have everything on the menu (including all the beer brands). They do have good food, simply prepared. We enjoyed our food, and we would go back. Would recommend for anyone wanting genuine Bahamian food who is not concerned about atmosphere.

Simply Native is one of my favorite eateries in Freeport! If a spot is frequented by the locals, then I want to eat there. There is something for everyone.

Great spot for lunch. Good value!

If you have time, you need to check it out. It is a locals dining spot. Boil fish, stew fish or conch or chicken, johnny cake and grits. Need to roll with the flow, not all foods available all the time, but if you're adventuresome you'll be happy with the flavour!

We only found this place because of the reviews here. Like other reviews have said, don't judge this place on the outside appearance.

We ate here once on our trip. It was a great experience and we would definitely go back.

I had the cracked conch and my husband had the friend lobster. The food and service were both very good. We felt that it was a good value for what you received. The portions were very good.

We would definitely recommend this place.
