I went here on advice from a cab driver. She explained in the cab ride "if someone takes her on a date to Bamboo Shack, that person will get lucky later that night".

I am always seeking the most local of experiences, especially food! Although we visited just out of Grouper season, the cracked conch, conch fritters, and cracked lobster were primo! And the Price!! cheap cheap! LOVE IT! Beats the fish fry in price as it has become to touristy! PS their yeast rolls are to die for!

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.

I went to Bamboo Shack on Whulff Road on June 29, 2016. I ordered a conch snack that is now $10.00. I was disappointed and very upset with my order because the food was not worth $10.00. A small portion of conch and fries was on my plate. This made me feel as if I order a kids meal from... More

During our recent cruise to Nassau, St Thomas and St Maarten, we searched for the best fish sandwich and the Bamboo Shack is by far the best we found. If you go to the location where they make their own bread, you get a real treat too!

Bamboo Shack is a must visit for anyone visiting the Bahamas. The chicken is my favorite. This preparation is a typical Bahamian version of fried chicken. Each time I visit the Bahamas I get special requests from my friends in Canada to bring them an order.😊
