  • You have got to go-so much fun! All of the locations are so friendly (albeit very pushy, outside trying to get you to come in to their locations, but that lends to the atmosphere!) We spent a couple o...  more »

  • Nice spot. Aimed at tourists, not many locals. Food was good, a little pricy
  • Fun place and good Bahamian food
  • This area is a small walkable street that has several restaurants to choose from. This is a party atmosphere. There were both locals and tourists here. We were with children and I do not think I would return with them. This is better for adults.
  • Amazing location if you like being amongst the locals. We ate at Twin Brothers. We ate fresh Conch salad, pulled from the shell and made right in front of our eyes. We ate outside in the beautiful weather with the locals just chatting it up and having a good time. It is just a short walk away from the cruise terminal but cabbies are waiting in droves for your business as well. Some of our fellow cruisers ate here too but did so inside with the actual restaurant and all they ate were wings. Why come to an iconic location to get wings??
  • Love, love, love this place and miss it very much
