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

We rarely come to this restaruant even though we come to Hope Town often. I guess we have been missing out! We had a delightful and delicious lunch --catch of the day Mahi grilled. Of course the view is to die for also.

We go for lunch as often as possible and frequently stay for longer then we should. Take a suit and swim on the perfect bech. Its a short bike ride from... More

Cocktails here overlooking the Atlantic are the best on the Cay. The food is simple, the burger excellent and meaty and the fish melts good. There are no fries here, chips come in a bag snd you can have rice and peas or macaroni cheese for"carbs" This is one place you definitely should not miss.

Literally "On Da Beach" This place had good grilled food with AMAZING atmosphere and views. We chose to walk the 1/2 to 3/4 miles out of town to get here but a call to the restauraunt will get you a golf cart ride. The view of the Atlantic Ocean is awesome and is worth the walk and the expense! GO... More
