We were told about this place by our server at the Sunshine Grill. She said they had the best fried conch fritters, which are my absolute favorite, so we just had to try it! We stopped by on our way back to Seven Mile after a visit to Rum Point. I would say we were a bit underwhelmed. The food was excellent (cooked to order!) and the view was beautiful, but it was located adjacent to a gas station parking lot and there were so many local loitering around it made us a bit nervous. We are from Dallas, so probably overly cautious, and I'm sure it is 100% safe, but it just made us very uncomfortable. I would've loved to have sat and ate on the beach, but there were locals literally sleeping on the tables/benches, so that wasn't really an option. Food was good, eating from a shack was a fun thought, but I probably wouldn't go back.

The fried grouper platter included fried plantains, fried casaba, breadfriut, fried bread, and onions. Everything was delicious, and there was plenty of it. I wish it were open more than just weekends.

We liked the beach setting. The food was good and we tried some interesting things that we had not tasted before.

Always looking for a full red snapper? This is it! Also maui maui, or moni moni, lots of fries and fritters. Weekend fish fry by the sea. Near Dunkin Donuts and next to Texaco Station in Boden Town. Worth the drive from Georgetown.

Our experience in March 2012 was not the same as these other positive reviews. We went there on a Sunday night and the woman waiting on us gave us a sample of the fish to try before we ordered.

The sample of fish was very good so we ordered it and got it to go. When we got back to our condo (2 minutes later) and opened it to eat it, the fish was extremely dry, tough and old tasting. This was NOT the fish we sampled. It was just about inedible.

Our experience was that we were ripped off. No prices listed either.
Make sure you ask the price before you order. We had been there one night before and it was not good either (but was edible that night) but we figured we'd try it again because it was close to where we were staying and we didn't want to drive that night.

Go to Rankins or Chester's. Both of those places were very good on multiple visits.
