Great jerk chicken. Located in downtown area usually very quiet, but lively when a cruise ship is in port.

We had cracked conch (like calamari) and conch fritters which were delicious! Often the other eateries across the street are closed unless the cruise ships are in, but Barbie's seemed to always be open.

Bring cash and get the conch fritters! Service was fast and the food was awesome. We got the local oxtails, plantains and peas and rice. Heaven!! Friends got fish fingers. Started with cinch fritters, kind if like tender hush puppies with conch. OMG! I could go back for just those ($2).

Their wings are not only the best on the island but also some of the best wings I have ever had. We had take out and ate there once. My husband went to pick up the take out around 8 one night and the building got egged! So I wouldn't recommend eating there at night but if that's the worst... More

We visited Barbie's while on the island and the food was Awesome! It does take a while to get the food because so many people want to eat here but it is worth the wait. They offer free-wifi which is great if your cruising and have not had service in a day or so. The only thing is that the... More

They have great conch dishes and cold beer.. My wife went across the street to shop and left me with the food and drink... Not much atmosphere, but a good place to eat lunch and grab a cold beer..

Casual restaurant frequented by locals. Our dive master swung out dive boat by the beach in front of the restaurant to pick up his lunch. Of course we had to try it too. My husband ordered the oxtail stew and he cant stop talking about it. I ordered a fish sandwich and it was good.

Our taxi drive dropped us off at this location after we asked for a good place to have lunch. The service was great and friendly. The food was excellent and the drinks nice a cold which was welcome on a hot summer day. We enjoyed jerk chicken, beans and rice and fresh cold rum punch to wash it down.

We were on the Rainbow tour trolley, it was great! We stopped on this one way street along the coast and got to quickly (20 minutes) order food. We had sweet potatoes fries (good but could use seasoning) and conch fritter. They were 6 for $2 and about the size of a hush puppies from captain ds. Very tasty! Fun... More

Barbie's was a fun quick lunch while visiting Grand Turk on a day trip. Service was fabulous and the food was delicious. We were just doing a little walking around the island when the smell kept drawing us in. Barbecue chicken with peas and rice was size able enough to share with my 7 year old and so tender it...
