Been on GBI for a week trying various places. Mostly good. We drove into Bertha's - very quiet. Asked if they were serving food- choices were chicken or lobster. We asked for 3 lobster. Nice time waiting watching the beach with cold beer and cocktails then the best platter of lobster tails salad and fries ever. More cold beer to... More

Visited with friends, variety of food all cooked to perfection by Bertha and served by her family, a beautiful tranquil location.You can chill out on the beach until the food is ready on one of the loungers Bertha has available.

Local snowbirds in our condo unit highly recommended Bertha's as a dining option for our family of eight. Being first time island visitors, we scoped out the location the following day. We met two gents who greeted us warmly. We made our reservation and requests per their recommendations. We were so excited for our "fabulous" local dinner on our final... More

The food is fabulous! Best lobster I have ever had. The guys running the bar are friendly and provide a cozy atmosphere for having a few friendly drinks. A must-go-to place.

I'll be honest, I didn't get to try the food. We stopped by twice, but only for drinks and the view. Bertha and her friends at the bar were super friendly, I will definitely be back, and I will return hungry!

This is a must visit spot! Bertha serves a fantastic meal and just the what you ask for. If you are in Freeport you must visit her. BTW bring a little extra white wine and Bertha will sit with you and share life stories. Very Very interesting history for sure.

We love Freeport, saw Berthas review and went on a hunt to find her. She was there but closed, asked us to come back tomorrow for a special Bahamas Locals Lunch. The beach was amazing, had the place to ourselves except her family. Lunch was wonderful lobster, grouper and conch with sides. Wonder family, food, cold beer. Worth the visit.... More

My wife saw a review of Berthas online and we decided to give it a shot. If you are staying at the Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach you can walk down the beach to the right and enjoy an awesome meal. We stayed at the Island Seas resort and had a rent a car so it was about a 15 minute... More

Best meal I've had in my life. Love Bertha and her family. The food is authentic Bahamian. The menu consists of whatever is fresh that day. Call ahead for specific requests and diet restrictions 478-7288.
