Fodor's Expert Review Max's Conch Bar and Grill
This island treasure, possibly the island's most-recommended dining spot, is praised up and down by locals and visitors alike. Quintessentially Bahamian, you can sit all day on a stool at the colorful roadside hexagonal gazebo or at a table in the garden patio amid chickens and a goat, nursing beers and nibbling on excellent conch salad prepared right in front of you. Become a veritable expert on Long Island and its people with gregarious Max and the sweet, chatty Liz. Such is the charm of this laid-back watering hole, visitors come back again and again. Their recipes are old-time Bahamian, hard to find elsewhere. Be sure to try the conch fritters, steamed snapper, and breadfruit chips, or any of the daily specials such as pot roast and crawfish stuffed potatoes. Max also offers complimentary Wi-Fi for those needing to stay connected.
