Our family of 4 (mom, dad, two teenagers) visited Bishop's after spending time @Lucaya National Park and beach. Good Bahamian food (some American mixed in), excellent service and fair pricing- consistent with the other reviews we read here. Would definitely drive out of our way to visit again. Thank you Bishop's!

We've been going to grand Bahama island for many years now and after stumbling upon Bishops during our very first visit, it has become a MUST for each and every visit since then. Love the beach and the extremely casual atmosphere of the outdoor bar and deck. The fried chicken and fried grouper are out of this world. The potato... More

We stopped by Bishop's after our trip to the Lucayan National Park for a late lunch. We sat inside as it was rather windy that day but there were lots of people out at the outside bar. The service was great (although we found the Grand Bahamas to have such friendly people!!) and the food was very good. If you're... More

We took ourselves to the eastern end of the island yesterday. On the way back we stopped at Bishop's for food and drink. The restaurant and bar are off the 'main' road and are very beautifully situated. We ambled over to the restaurant to order our food and use the very clean restrooms. The kind server offered to bring everything... More

Bishop's is a small, hidden bar and restaurant located on a beautiful white sand beach. There seem to be three sections: a small building where you order lunch, an adjacent small structure with a few rooms to rent, and the bar itself. The bar is slightly raised and has a few stools and some nearby tables. The food was a... More

If you want to experience a peaceful place that is free of the usual commercialism that Grand Bahama Island is famous for, go to Bishop's on the Beach. You will have to rent a car and we did just for this trip. We enjoyed it so much, we kept the car an additional day and spent our final day at... More

Drove here after visiting Gold Rock beach, it is so worth the drive. We ordered our food inside, and they will bring it acros to the bar for you to eat beach side. Best Grouper fingers ever!!! Bishop himself was tending bar, what a great character, could've stayed and chatted for hours. Loved it.

After a midday trip to Gold Rock Beach we stopped here for a late lunch. The beer was especially cold and quite reasonable in price. The lady working was very friendly. We had traditional food found most everywhere, conch, grouper and prk chops. Fried or crack as the call it. It wasnt exceptional but it was good. We all were... More

I was there in the middle of a storm and the women was so sweet. The food was delicious but I wish they had dessert. When the rain let up I went out to the beach patio and sat out of the rain and read a book. I can only imagine how beautiful it would be on a sunny day.... More

My husband and I left our resort to explore the local national park ... I had researched a place nearby to eat for a late lunch, so we were prepared to go a little further to Bishop's. The resort/ Restaurant is about 10 miles past the national park. We ordered at the bar inside and the lady was very kind.... More
