“Top spot!”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

Right on the water, perfect place to watch the sun set while the conch are being pulled up from the water in front of you. Local feel, laid back with the owner present, which is always a good thing. Food was fresh, tasty and served with a smile. Closed Sundays.

“Taste, See, & Feel the Island”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

During our first visit to Harbour Island we stumbled on Queen Conch, an obvious favorite for locals and return visitors. For 17 years the owner and her daughter have served fresh conch salad and other island dishes over the counter and on their bayside deck. Sign up on the paper list to order the house specialty; watch the Queen freshly prepare your order; grab your container of fresh conch salad (conch mixed with fresh tomato, peppers, onion, herbs, and lime); head to the deck or motor your golf cart to the beach for a picnic. Add fresh homemade sweet bread from the local grocery store or bakery. Other offerings, like stone crabs and grilled Bahama lobster, will keep you coming back to the counter! The food, the scene, the Queen make this a required stop for anyone on Harbour Island.

“So happy we found this place.”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

We (two adults and an 8-year old) spent a rainy afternoon driving the golf cart around Harbour Island. The only reason we stopped at Queen Conch was because a) there was a table with an umbrella under which we could eat and stay dry and b) the place was full of locals. We had no idea that this was the best place to eat in Harbour Island, but we know, now! We literally saw our freshly caught and gutted fish being carried in the back door. The staff seemed to almost lovingly prepare the food and at the end of our meal, when they asked if we liked it, they seemed genuinely pleased when we said we were happy. You can eat at the tables or get the food to go. If you want to people watch, this is the place to do it. It was clear that the staff knew most of the people that they were serving, but also treated us strangers as though we were just as important. We had the sense that this place was the true heart of the town and we felt like we had been part of something a bit special as we ate there.

“Queen of the conch!”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

The conch salad is a great deal. Served fresh as ordered; simply place your name and order
on the notepad provided and relax! Get a cold beer across the street or at the little bar next door and wait, its worth it.
They have a great patio behind for enjoying your meals and also great to watch the sunsets in the harbour with a nice cold drink and dinner.
They start serving conch about 12 noon until six, i believe they are closed on sundays.Conch is 10 dollars bahamian or US.

We had a delicious and perfectly cooked and seasoned blackened grouper the first night with a side of steamed vegetables while we watched the sunset in the harbour. Perfect.

The other great thing about Queen Conch is the people who own and run the place; Simone runs the back of things that offer so much in the way of great seafood and her parents and sister run the conch side of things.They are soooo friendly and make you feel like an old customer or a good friend.
Great food, great value and great people.
