Nice variety of Bahamian and American dishes. Something for everyone! Closest place to go to after you get off the plane!

No trip to Long Island is complete without a stop at Max's Conch Bar and Grill. Gary, the man behind Max's, makes a signature conch salad that can't be beat. A friendly and casual environment provides a great backdrop for top notch local cuisine and cold drinks. Look for the international flags planted along the roadside.

Careful, or you might drive past Max's, but you should definitely stop! The beer was cold and the service was friendly. While we sat, "Max" himself chopped up a batch of fresh Conch Salad and it was the best I have ever had in the Bahamas. Our group also had a variety of other menu items and everyone enjoyed their...

Very friendly people. Great atmosphere. Food is good but not outstanding. The red snapper is not fresh but the conch is. The conch salad is the best around.

A great spot to enjoy local cuisine, have a few drinks and meet locals. Be sure to try Max's famous conch salad. The food was also fresh and delicious.

My first trip to Long Island and everyone said " Max's Conch Bar is a must!" Well, they weren't kidding! Best conch salad and cracked conch I have ever had! Especially enjoyed sitting and chatting with Max! I highly recommend a visit or two!

On this, our second trip to Long Island, we stopped at Max's on the way to Deans Blue Hole. This great little spot looks straight from what you envision a Bahamian pub should be. We of course had to have the famous conch salad, and it was awesome! Made fresh in front of us, the smells of the ingredients that... More

Super quaint for an essentially road-side bar. I had the conch salad which was delicious and rice and beans and plantains, also delicious. Very nice staff working here. Friendly and willing to chat and tell stories. We kept trying to make it back to this place during our visit, but it was just a little too far from where we... More
