Great place to stop and eat while exploring the southern part of the island - good menu selection, great food and beautiful outdoor patio with a nice view of the marina. We had fun looking for fish by the dock while we waited for our food. The marina attendant was very friendly, but the servers were just OK - not as friendly and welcoming as other parts of the island. But we did enjoy the meal and the experience - the food was very good and it was a great place to fill up before exploring Lighthouse Beach - a must see on the southern tip of the island. I'm glad we made the side trip to Cape Eleuthera. Definitely worth a stop.

For atmosphere, sitting on the patio and looking out at the marina, especially at night, is a nice casual setting. Though in both size and service, it is certainly more akin to a Starbucks, than a full service restaurant.

I tried a few items from the menu during my stay at Powell Pointe and while they were not bad, they were certainly not great. They serve pizza, but I prefer both Tippy's (far superior) and Mate & Jenny's to the BCC. The burgers and sandwiches were fairly bland, about what you might expect if you bought a bulk box from Costco. We tried a platter of conch fritters, wings, and some other samplings. I remember it was dripping in grease and we didn't care to finish it.

The number one selling point of the BCC though, is that there are no other restaurants nearby, and if you're staying at Powell Pointe, it's either this or cooking in your room. If you're there, it will do, but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here.

The Bahama Coffee Company restaurant boasts the best waterfront views of any restaurant for 30 miles to include not only views of the marina, but also sunset views from sunset beach.
The restaurant seats as many as 15 persons indoors under AC and as many as 48 persons under the lanai or outdoors under large shaded palms.

The restaurant is the only restaurant on the island open 365 days a year and all day that never closes from 7am-10 pm in the interest of extraordinary service to our resort and visiting guests. Which means the many daily visitors not staying at the resort are never told we are closed and turned away as they are at several of the restaurants you mention with no concern for the distance the guests have travelled.

The restaurant hosts a full service wine, champagne and liquor bar with every imagineable drink available from all over the world and we offer a selection of cuban cigars. How many Starbucks offer this and 4 pages of menu selections...you would be right to recognize that the Restaurant also specializes in the finest coffee, espresso and specialty drinks on the island to include frozen fruit smoothies. All our coffees and espressos are served from fresh roasted beans, over 8 flavors are available.

Our Pizzas are all made from scratch daily to include the fresh dough, pizza tomato sauce from local tomatos and the finest cheeses. We see you observed pizza but did not try it or your opinion may be consistent with all the other guests that have raved about our fresh prepared pizza...guests drive from Governor's harbour to pick up our pizza.

We apologize if you had a specialty platter that did not meet your expectation, had this really happened and you brought it to our attention you would not be allowed to pay for it, however your comments were not shared with anyone as your comments have been shared with all the associates that are often named as the friendliest and most helpful in all of the reviews for the resort and restaurant. They would not allow you to leave dissatisfied.

You should travel to South Eleuthera more often to know the many preferred restaurants that our guests that are resort guests and or visitors frequent daily if not weekly to include Cheryl's, A&T's Takeaway, Ship to Shore, Never Rest and those established favorites in Rock Sound near most every guest arrives to the island such as Sammy's, Northside Inn and Restaurant and or Four Points. Our guests enjoy local family style restaurants.

Our Number one selling point is our friendly associates and service with a smile who prepare to order from scratch every meal, they bake daily the fresh breads and desserts. The hamburgers are the finest Certified Angus Beef available and you should be advised there is no costco in the Bahamas. You are right that many resort guests enjoy the convenience of our scenic restaurant and the ability to pick up their meal and dine privately on their sunset lanai patio. Others are spoiled by the most luxury full service kitchens that only Powell Pointe Resort on the island offers its guests with finest in culinary wares from Henkell knifes to fine crystal and Italian China and the most expensive pots and pans as we believe the in room dining experience should be excellent as that our talented chefs prepare daily. In fact we will help you prepare your Bahamian meal if you prefer and or assist in provisioning.

Please on your next visit to South Eleuthera, plan to stop by an introduce yourself to be known by our friendly associates and enjoy a specially prepared meal as my guest. Surely your experience will the that of all the other guests that have rated us Excellent. We are the second busiest restaurant in the whole of 110 mile long Eleuthera serving more guests than most any other location and it must be worth the drive for that to be true...and you wont be turned away between 2p and 5p as our associates are here to service you all day everyday. Reviewers are savvy to contact other past guests to get the truth so dont be tricked by this one who has purposely written before negatively on the Cape and not stayed here. As resident General Manager I meet every guest with my associates, they really would know you as small a place as we are in South Eleuthera.

Breakfast sandwiches were our favorite to start our activity filled day, made to order with fresh Bahamian bread, eggs, provolone cheese, green peppers and onions cooked to perfection...Just give the girls plenty of time to fix them since they are a small restaurant with many guests and they take pride in the presentation of each plate. Dinner in a relaxed atmosphere to recollect the days adventure with other guests, makes for a very homey, comfortable setting. Catch your own fish, "no problem" they will cook it to order... have it ready when you say you'd like it.. better than reservations. Desserts are homemade and delicious with a good variety.Now I have to diet again... but it was worth it!
