Harbour Island

Queen Conch

Bay St.
Dunmore Town, Harbour Island, Bahamas

This Bay Street roadside stand serves the most authentic conch salad in the Bahamas. In fact, the ceviche-style entrée is the only item they serve and it's made while customers watch. Owner Richard and his wife mix freshly chopped, raw conch meat, onions, peppers, and tomatoes with freshly squeezed sour orange juice—the key ingredient. Richard, nicknamed The Conch King, dives for the mollusks all around the Bahamas, and stores them in cages below the restaurant's back deck, so they are as fresh as possible. On a busy day, this cash-only eatery goes through 150-200 of those critters.

Insider Tip:

Arrive early on Saturdays, as the Queen Conch has quite a reputation.
