Spent six nights on Long Island and went to The Forest 2 twice because it was SO GOOD! Dudley and his staff really know how to cook. We just love the Cracked Conch and Cracked Chicken and the Forest Burger might be one of the best burgers this Canadian has ever eaten! You have to eat here!

We stopped at this casual spot for lunch. Had not been there before but heard good things. Ordered the fish burger, which was out of this world! Made with fresh local hog fish, which is becoming one of my favourites. Made to order, served quickly and hot, great toppings and bun. Great lunch stop!

We had the grouper fingers and cracked chicken along with plantains. This might have been what we were looking for the whole week we spent on the island, unfortunately it was on our last day. We are heading back this Summer and will make a trip there early, and maybe often.

I'm not sure I have had better Bahamian food. The rice & peas was fantastic, chicken terrific, and plantains to die for. The building and setting are nothing fancy, but I wish we had found it earlier in our stay as we would have been repeat customers.

Wow, not quick service but excellent local food in large quantities and inexpensive. Wish I had visited earlier in our trip and would have gone several times.

This is a nice place to stop and grab something tasty and cheap. We had hamburgers, cracked chicken, and rice and peas. All were good and very affordable. Call ahead and it can be ready when you arrive!

If you are short on time or just have a craving for a good hamburger, this is a great place. The Forrest also has great Bahamian fare.

We got a variety of burgers and ribs, and enjoyed a beer or two while waiting for it all to be prepared at the available picnic tables. Food was good and portions were generous.

You can't go wrong with the food or the service at Forest 2. Consistently fresh and deeeelish. Clean and friendly, nice place to sit and enjoy Bahamian cuisine.

..take out, eat outside, and there are no better burgers anywhere. Located right on the main road, it's simply fun and delicious.
