Queen Conch

Bay Street, Dunmore Town, The Bahamas


Any Briland regular will insist that you cannot leave the island without sampling the local specialty: conch ceviche. This is the place to do it. Queen Conch is a tiny shack on Bay Street that opens at noon for lunch. You sidle up to the counter, write your name and order down on a yellow legal pad, then head to the back deck overlooking the harbor to hang out while you wait. The signature dish is the “conch salad”: a dice of just-caught raw conch, green peppers, tomatoes and onions with a dash of salt, a dollop of hot sauce and a big squeeze of fresh lime juice and sour orange. Order one for the table, along with traditional beach shack fare like conch fritters and grouper sandwiches. It’s all super casual and BYOB.
