We walked to this establishment from our condo at Turtle Nest Inn for dinner. Yummy! Check the whiteboard up front for your dining choices. I had a small order of mahi-mahi which was accompanied by fried plantains, cassava, fry bread, and some incredible warm onions. Supplement the spiciness with picked onions as a garnish. Plenty of food at a very... More

Catch this fish hut at least once a visit to Bodden Town. Fun and local--fried fish dinners to go or to eat at picnic tables on the beach. Open only weekends so don't miss a fun island spot.

We went there today Wednesday Nov 30th because Alan at the blow holes said it was great.... only problem was they were closed. The guy there said it was only open on weekends now. So will have to try it on my next visit..have to rate on what Alan said....

Delicious fish fry - the mahi mahi is a must! We walked over from Seapalm Villas and picked up our lunch every day. It was always fresh and always yummy!

This is a place that locals go to. Don't mind if a few teenagers are hanging out in the parking lot showing off their car stereo. Catch of the day is whatever the owner caught outside his shack. People are friendly. Portions are large. I can eat a lot but could not finish all they gave us. Eat in the... More

Not gourmet by any stretch of the imagination. Strictly take out with outdoor table for dining if you like. You get fried fish Mai Mai (mostly), plantains, rolls, a "starch" veggies potato like - all for about $10 USD. You won't go away hungary.

We went for the famous weekend fried fish and it did not disappoint. We both had snapper. It comes fried whole, cooked very nicely, seasoning is very simple. Sides are picked onion, cassava, plaintain and fried dough. Killer fried dough, I think they call it festival. Not terrible expensive, cash only. Shack on a perfect beach, picnic tables by the...

Excellent fish! You must try their snapper, it is very fresh and tasty! It may not be very fancy but this is what the local will eat. It is very cheap compare to other restaurant on the island. The owner is extremely friendly. Highly recommended!
