  • Get the fried Snapper...wonderful! Is also a nice walk from the cruise port along the water. Many little restaurants to choose from along the waterfront, but not a lot of view.  more »
  • Lots of options of places to eat! If you continue to walk it will lead you to the beach and other food vendors.  more »
  • Go for the fish fry, there are dozens of restaurants here. For a traveler go during the day, the locals enjoy this location at night. But the food was fantastic at reasonable prices.  more »
