I had the jerk chicken dinner and it was pretty tasty. My friends are locals and they got the cracked conch. Also super delicious. Not in the safest neighborhood, but be smart and you’ll be fine!

We waited over a half hour for our order, but the cracked conch was delicious! The service isn't stellar, but flavour made it worth waiting. The cracked conch comes with fries and a roll for $12. It was very filling.

If you are looking for authentic Bahamian food, which is fried, at affordable price visiting Bamboo shack is a good idea. Conch and chicken was good but lobsters was just OK.

the Bamboo Shack is a well known local place. the conch is tender and they servers are friendly enough. the prices are $$ but you get a good portion for your money. I would say it's the best cracked conch on the island.
