“Great location”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Sitting at your picnic table, warm wind blowing, gorgeous palm trees, and your feet digging in the sand, eating lunch all at the same time...lovely.
Food was good, nothing all that different offered that wasn't at a bevy of other restaurants on the island.
Glad I got to try this restaurant, I would go back.

“Really great beach bar, excellent food and drink”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

I don't *think* I'm being influenced by it just being a case of time of day (been out driving, wanted a drink and a quick bite), perfect weather, gorgeous beach views, intimate but at the same time communal, but wow, what a great find! If we'd have found da Conch Shack earlier during our stay we would have come back here several times, no kidding. (see the photos).

We had minimal drinkage and food, I'll say that right off the bat, but: KILLER rum punch, excellent conch fritters and cracked conch (like clam strips but with conch)! We perched at a nice little table down in front on a raised porch area (far left area of the open-air restaurant which is luxuriously shaded by palm trees throughout which tables and chairs are set)... and enjoyed the awesome view (again, see photos).

Which I could say more, but I can't say enough: want a perfect local-ish restaurant away from the hotel scene with a friendly vibe, excellent ambience, and good food and drink? Sure you do! Go here and be happy!

Oh, one last thought for you and the management, it was a nice surprise to find at least one place in Provo that didn't already add in a service charge. I believe in tipping well for good service and apparently they buy into that philosophy too and aren't' afraid of it... 20% (plus a little) I was too happy to add on on my own!

Wow Blitzin, we love your review! The pics too! You have just won our new weekly "Great Review Contest" (which we decided to create after reading your review). Please stop by in for a glass of rum punch on the house next time you are on island.

Thanks for sharing. Cheers!

“Awesome! Don't miss it!”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Couldn't be happier with the experience and food!!!! Great staff, atmosphere and food. Go when there is a live band! I think this is usually Wednesday evenings.
Bring a light sweater or wrap if you are at all sunburned and the winds are over 10 miles per hour. Remember to save around $25 (per 2 people) for a cab ride back to the resorts. Awesome fries and rum punch! Can't go wrong with anything on the menu!

Thanks SusuB! Yup, the Island boys play every Wednesday starting around 6:30. Bring your dancing shoes (and then leave them under your table!)

Cheers!

“This feels Caribbean”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 via mobile

Anywhere Anthony bordain likes to visit I am open to. It feels very Caribbean like. Great food. Great chill atmosphere. Loved the rum
Punch!!! Loved the conch ceviche . Loved the blackened grouper. Bought some 7 dollar sauce there which I loved:) Only negative we're the prices. Most expensive meal we had on the island but it was out last one.
