My husband and I went for lunch one day while in Hopetown. I wasn't very hungry but he got the fish sandwich. He said it was good. It was served with potato chips; wish it was served with something else. The view is very nice and you can walk right down to the beach (hence the name) after you eat.... More

A well kept Hopetown secret, On Da Beach is a fabulous beach bar. Perched high up and overlooking the incredible turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean, this is my new favorite spot in the Abacos! We had the fresh fish of the day sandwich melt with Bahamian style mac and cheese on the side. Accompanied by the bars' signature rum... More

That fish sandwich is to die for.... but if you are going carb free, the fish sticks are some of the best I've ever had. And what scenery! I'm jealous that you are reading this and you get to go...

Great location on the Oceanside on Elbow Cay. Ocean view, friendly staff and great food and cold beer. Enough said!

Enjoyed this place so much we went back three times during our 10 day visit. Beautiful view, friendly staff and pretty good food. Hot dogs, fish melt and blackened fish were enjoyed by the entire group. The specialty rum drinks hit the spot as well. It's a fun place to just relax and enjoy those tropical breezes after a busy...

Have a stroll along a white sandy beach and pop in for a bite. Simple, well cooked food and great value. Great staff with a world beating view of the sand and out to sea. Well chilled we think!

We try to get to this bar for a drink every time we are in Hope Town. You cannot beat the view! Bartender Gary (the explorer!) is fantastic and fun; he was off this time but Arletta (or something like that) was just lovely. A feel good place and a must go to in Hope Town.

Over looking the Atlantic. Great view. Food very good as are the drinks. Limited searing. Worth the wait for food. Very little wait for drinks.

Lots of beautiful beach, a great bar to have a drink. The food was ok but it all tasted the same coming from the grill. I had the hamburger and my wife had the fish fingers. I am not sure if the grill was too hot but both tasted a bit singed. BUT, the bartender was awesome and fun, and... More
