We ordered a standard ham and cheese sandwich. It took quite a bit of time to make the sandwich and the Market was out of wheat bread. The $12 price was bit on the high side for a basic sandwich but since everything has to come here by boat it's probably understandable.

This is a great place for a lite snack or lunch. Their pizza is fantastic.
Staff is very friendly and accommodating . The venue is very small inside but most times you do not have a long wait.
One drawback. Very expensive.....but, it is at the beach.

Delicious sandwiches and homemade potato chips. Ordered the corn beef on a pretzel bun and the Italian on wheat. Both were very filling.

Staff was not very friendly.

We are BHI property owners and spend a great deal of time on the Island. All of the restaurants are unique in their own way, but in our opinion, the best meal deal on the Island are the family meals at the Market. Call ahead and book -- they are all great. We particularly like the spaghetti and meat balls. Have had lasagna and fried chicken as well. If you are bringing your family, the best bet to feed your crowd are the family meals at the Market. Great food, great quantities, very reasonable prices -- especially for BHI!
