If you are in Marsh Harbour and want a nice lunch or dinner I would recommend Wally's. If you are going to dinner you should definitely make a reservation. There are two seating options inside or out. Inside you have aircon I like both. If you like tropical shopping ladies you will love the in house shop. This is a... More

Our annual Abaco holiday starts and ends at Wally's. We get through customs, grab a cab, hit Maxwell's and while we wait for our rental boat we step onto the porch at Wally's. Those few steps let us know that we are now, officially, on vacation. Get a plate of fritters and wash them down with a Wally. Our kids... More

According to the locals, Wally's is a must stop .. And boy were they correct! We did lunch on the patio .. Bahamian cracked conch, Bahamian fried chicken, Bahamian fish tacos .. All delicious .. Gracious and attentive servers (the norm for the Bahamas) made for a truly delightful meal. Wally's is definitely return worthy!

The service from start to finish was perfect! The food was a unique balance of Bahamian and American, all were delicious. Anyone could find something they would enjoy on this menu and their frozen drinks were perfect too! I particularly enjoyed their coconut shrimp and seared seared tuna appetizers :) My fish cobb salad was also good but a tad... More

Just looking at the entrance of Wally's tells you that this is a truly special place on Abaco Island. Beautiful gardens, expansive porch with ceiling fans for outdoor seating, pretty lighting. Inside is beautiful as well. The service is warm, friendly and very professional. We brought our own wine which was whisked away and promptly returned in an ice bucket... More

Our favorite place for lunch in Marsh Harbour when we come in from the cay to do our shopping. We're US second home-owners and have been enjoying Wally's fine food, good service and pleasant atmosphere for about 20 years. Our children and grandchildren always want to go there first for the cracked conch as soon as they leave the airport.... More

I have been coming here since he was a kid. Wally is gone now and the sisters are not around much anymore, but it is still a wonderful place to eat and the top of my list to eat when I'm in town.

Bahamian cuisine at it's best. Cool, air-conditioned interior on a sweltering, hot August day in the Abacos... ceiling fans humming, comfortable chairs at the bar (because all of the tables were taken, no wonder, this place is awesome!!) and yes, there is also plenty of outdoor seating within the harmonious verandah area outside the restaurant. So, in dire need of... More
