We ate at Penny's Fish Fry and it was fantastic. For $60 we got three beers, two large snapper plates with cole slaw and rice plus one desert (Guava Duff) to share. At 7:00 pm he place wasn't crowded at all and service was quick. We love eating whole fish and the snapper was cooked and spiced to perfection.

You pay 8 bucks each for a shuttle ride to 4 open air "restaurants". You pay 16 to 30 dollars US to dine on fish you could get for 10 bucks and not be eaten by bugs. No bonfire on the beach, no music..nothing. the shuttle strands you there so you either stand around doing nothing and get bit by... More

We have gone several wed nights. Gets crowded after 6-7. Starts at around 6 PM. Da bus stop is highly suggested and Terry's down by the church. Around the corner from the main drive is the best. Snapper, turbot, grouper. $5 - $20 depending on the size. Cash only.

We reviewed Penny's restaurant under Taino beach. Please read that as you don't need to line up on the beach for food that isn't as good. From other reviews, it seems that some folk misunderstand the Wed fish fry. If you want snappy table service in a gourmet restaurant this is not for you. This is a local Bahamian party... More

Second time going here and it doesn't disappoint. Good fresh home Bahamian cooking right next to the beach. Really fun on Wednesday's but often open other evenings. Have not had the chicken but all other dishes are great. Really a solid value. If you are not a big eater consider splitting.

Overall We enjoyed a night of music, drinks and fresh seafood. We settled on the bar/restaurant on the beach. There were many locals there and the lines were incredibly long. We were previously told that the food would cost $8-$12 per plate but it ended up was a little more. We ordered lobster and shrimp and had to leave the... More

Our resort provided a fish fry that was basically all of the normal dinner foods, but put outside and with fried fish added. There was a nice set up of tables out. The food just did not look appetizing. Instead, we went to the local Fish Fry at Smith's Point. It was a great taste of culture and the food... More

This place is great, we spent the whole day there. Great service with cheap drinks and the water was perfect. The location is amazing and if you walk around the bend about 3kms there's a secluded beach that is absolutely immaculate.

This is, by far, THE thing to do on a Wednesday on Grand Bahama Island!! The authentic island food, atmosphere, and culture MUST be experienced...it can not be described! By island standards the cost is very reasonable...under $40 for 2. Just like most things on the island, give yourself plenty of time and don't expect fast service...get on island time... More
