We stopped here last month while we were in port. They were getting ready to close soon. However, they were more than happy to accommodate us. I would go there again if I am ever in town again.

Mostly a carryout place, but quite a few tables inside. We weren't crazy about the conch fritters. Large bar. Located right downtown. Does not serve dinner. Pleasant people at the counter.

If you want well-prepared home cooking in Nassau this is the place. The steamed chicken, conch fritters & peas and rice are not to be missed.

Food was excellent couldn't give it a 5 star because the service was slow and menu items were a little pricey compared to other local spots on the island. The waitress seemed a little annoyed, but overall great food wonderful experience.
