Many people in town recommended Wendy's to us - we eventually came to believe this was because it looks very American inside and tourists frequent it.
The first time we went, we were excited to try some of the delicious - looking entrees on the menu. It turned out they had none of the dinner items available (not for lunch or dinner or anytime) and not many of the lunch either. Because it was the low season they don't employ a cook that can cook these items. Basically there were tacos burritos, quesadillas and other local fare available. They did have the lobster fritters, but these tasted like nothing other then egg, and when we opened them up with a fork found only one tiny piece of lobster inside.
We came back after conch season had started and they were advertising conch soup for lunch. We had heard this was the best way to have it, so we went back around 2PM. They were out of the soup and would not start serving the conch dinner for another 4 hours. We chose to eat somewhere else instead.
Maybe this is a great place to eat in the high season, but the two times we went they gave the impression of not caring a bit whether or not they had our business. It seems like it would not be that much trouble to follow the example of other restaurants and just put up a temporary menu on a chalkboard inside the restaurant each day, so a diner would know what's actually available to eat before being seated and spending time perusing a fictional menu.

Food here is pretty good. I tried the conch fritter, not too bad.
