This is definitely amongst the top 5 of the probably 25 places we've eaten at in the Bahamas. The decor isn't fancy, but the food is great and caringly prepared.

If you're like me, I like to get on the water early.They make a sausage and grits bowl ,with a juice for $5, it gives you a great start for a morning of fishing

The food here was consistently amazing. They served some of the best vegetarian food I've ever eaten. The meat-eaters in my group were equally satisfied. :)

Staying down the road, we stopped there for dinner one night. Be sure to make reservations! We had delicious jerk chicken, a Caribbean classic!

The HH restaraunt serves fresh food with familiar favorites for stateside folks (omelets, quesadillas) but also serves up local favorites. We found the food delicious (ate breakfast, lunch, and dinners there during our vacation). Service is always with a smile and a personal touch. Food is reasonably priced--good value for the quality and type of food served.

Mouth-watering chicken picatta over fettuccine, quesadillas loaded with fresh veggies, ice cream sandwiches on homemade sweet bread: I'm not usually a food connoisseur, but Tim's creations left me looking forward to every meal. The food is among the best I've had anywhere.

Tim is wonderful, takes great pride in his work, and prepares great meals, although dinner was a bit overpriced compared to other restaurants on the island.

If you like fresh fish Tim the chef at Halvorson House is your man! The entire dining experience completely exceeded my expectations. Great hosts in a warm friendly environment. If you enjoy cooking and want to sharpen your skills Tim will be more than happy to provide advise and tips as you watch his meal preparation.
