After taking a much need break from the world I stopped into Valentines restaurant for lunch. The food was delightful and the service was exceptional. The atmosphere is inviting and relaxing. Karis made the afternoon a memorable one. She made me feel welcomed and was very attentive to my needs. She gave some really good suggestions leaving me satisfied and... More

We stay at Valentine's and always have one meal there as a break from the more expensive fine dining spots. I usually have the burger but the chicken is ok. Don't try anything too creative. The service can be spotty as there are big distances for wait staff to travel to the bar and outdoor seating from the inside dining.... More

We've eaten there a couple of times for lunches and dinners. Burgers are very good, and last nights steak was excellent! (Though I did have very overcooked lobster there a week ago).Everybody was very happy with their meals. Really enjoyed sitting outside overlooking the Marina. Service was Bahamian casual.

Service was slow, which we expect in the islands, but there appears to be no interest in the staff sharing basic information. We ordered a bottle of wine only to have the waitress come back to us afterwards to say that they didn't have it. We ordered lobster but the same thing happened. Seems like the wait staff are poorly... More

While visiting Harbour Island, we tried out several of the local eateries. Many were closed, mostly due to renovations or updating before the high season starts in December. Our last night there we decided to splash out and went to the Boathouse at Valentines Marina. We ordered cocktails while we perused the menu. We chose shrimp cocktail and crab cakes... More

Took my family there for dinner. They did offer a kids menu. That is a real plus for Harbour Island. I had the grouper. It was excellent. Service was very good. Great atmosphere.

Wow. Where to begin. To tell you about the problems or the victories.... Okay, I had the good fortune to visit Harbour Island twice in June and during both trips I was taken to dinner by my customers at The Boathouse. I left very satisfied with my food,but wondering how good the experience COULD have been. The location, right at... More

I went there with my wife for dinner: food is not bad, nothing special, but service is really awful and unpleasant. I wouldn't go back even if they would pay me

The Valentine's Marin complex is a very nice upscale area with a marina, the Boathouse restaurant, the Rooster tail bar and Valentinrs resort. It looks brand new and is a great place to go for an app and a beer in the bar or a full meal in the restaurant. All open air. The menu was fairly extensive with everything... More
