I am not a big fan of Dean's Blue Hole, but I agree to tag along on each and every opportunity because I know that Max's will always be the last stop on the adventure. It's like hanging out in the owners', Gary and Liz, back yard deck where you enjoy the best conch salad in the Caribbean while washing it down with cold Kaliks and the colorful stories of the patrons. It is an iconic beach bar set just off the highway where you show up knowing no one and leave a good friend of everyone. If your lucky, Gary will pull out his guitar and add even more to your experience. If conch salad isn't your thing, there are a number of other delicious items on the menu, but come on, try the salad, it will become one of your favorite things!

No trip to LI is complete without stopping at Max's. Do a taste test and see who has best Conch Salad on the island.

Five of us fishermen descended at Max's on a Tuesday evening about 8pm, needing repast for a long day on the water. The waitress presented a menu of simple design hand etched on a boad that described the entrees plus available sides. Included were crack conch, hog fish parmesan, chicken jerk, grouper fingers, etc; sides included beans with white rice, plantains, potatoe salad,cole slaw, garden salad, etc. Meals price included one beverage. The group chose either hog fish parmesan or jerk chicken. The hog fish was absolutely melt in your mouth perfect and one of the most delicious fish dishes I have ever tasted. I also sampled some of the jerk chicken and it was incomparable also.

We recently returned from our stay on Long Island and had a great time at Max's. Unfortunately we only ate there once, but would highly recommend this place while staying on Long Island.
