Bernie's food is cooked fresh to order. His grilled conch and conch salad were great. He and Bernadette are friendly and ensure everyone is well fed and having a great time. When in Freeport this is a place to not miss.

Had a great time here with my family and friends. Drinks were pretty good prices and the food was very good. It is pretty run down from the hurricane, but you have to love Bernadette and Bernie. Great people.

The best food on the island. Don't just go for the BBQ. Every day he has some delicious fish. The grouper, lobster and snapper are all delicious.
