“Great time on the beach!”
Reviewed May 15, 2014 via mobile

Had a wonderful time at the beach. It was raining when we arrived but the bar was jumping with island music and a welcoming staff. The beer was cold and the food was great. Everything was prepared fresh and right in front of you. When making the conch salad the guy puts on a lil show with the knives chopping everything up! There were a few vendors that would walk up offering tshirts or other gifts. Some had good deals others didn't but no one was pushy or upset if you turned them down. Once the rain cleared up the view was amazing from the bar! Easy to get in the water just a few steps from the bar! We had an amazing day and will return again!

“somethings different (not in a good way)”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

headed back to billy joes and something seemed off this visit. we went there 3 times during our 8 day vacation and only visit #2 was really good. we really enjoy there grilled lobster and 2 of the 3 times they didnt have it. the last time, they couldnt even bbq/grill anything as the grill guy wasnt there, so all you could only order foods that were fried. the scenery is still perfect and people there were friendly but its a bit of a hike to find out that you could only order something fried. will go back and try it again on our next visit but i'm not the huge fan i used to be.

“Heaven”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

We dislike touristy places so this was perfect. Conch salad delicious and the fried Red Snapper was to die for. The Bahama Mama was also extremely potent. Others told us the chicken wings were great but we didn't have those.

“Best conch in the Bahamas...and rum punch! Amazing venue!!”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

My favorite place to eat in the Bahamas with my family. It has the feel of a locals only place with incredible friendly service and gorgeous atmosphere. After overpaying for several places for conch, Billy's had the best grilled conch I have ever had. Couple that with some strong rum punch, picnic tables on the sand by the water, and super friendly locals and you will never want to leave. The prices are the cheapest I paid for conch anywhere in the Bahamas and the taste was the best. Go with your family and they can play in the sand/water while the adults can enjoy the cold beer and drinks. Cheers!!!
