Repeat visit to billy joes and on this trip, we managed to eat there three times. All three meals were amazing and the staff there is very friendly. Started with lunch the first day we arrived (Tuesday) Food of grilled lobster and icy beers were awesome and you can't beat the beautiful ocean at your feet. Crowd was sparse and quiet with only a few couples also enjoying a relaxing lunch. Second trip (on thursday) was also for lunch (more grilled lobster and a burger, fries and kaliks)...this time there was more of a crowd which was mostly much older and appeared to be from a cruise ship. Third trip (on monday) was for the grouper platter (highly recommend), burgers, fries, kaliks. The crowd this time was mostly locals, very crowded with a DJ and a booty dance contest going on...it was loud and crowded.
Our three visits were at pretty much at the same time each day but just on different days...what a difference a day can make. We were ok with all three different crowd groups as the food, service and that beautiful ocean will keep us coming back.

Conch salad was awesome! The only thing better would have been tortilla chips with it. The cracked conch was yummy too but deep fried so not as good as the fresh salad!

Would be a value if you are coming from the resort next door. Located on the rocky part of the beach just next to Lucayan Resort. Separated by a fence with a guard at the gate. Great conch salad. Thought $20 was a little steep for a grilled lobster tail. Biggest drawback is no rest room. Only facilities are located on resort property so you have to pay admission fee to use them. Bummer after a couple of rum punches!

Loved the conch salad and the bahama mamas! We shared a salad, but I would have had no problem eating a whole one. Delicious. Drink was strong!

Excellent food. Prompt and courteous service. Not really a place to sit down in but great for getting excellent food at reasonable prices to eat in room or on beach
