Penny's was recommended to us by 3 or 4 people when we arrived at Freeport. This is a weekly fish fry at Smith's Point on Wednesday's (and some Friday's) where you can go and have great seafood, listen to local music and enjoy the tropical atmosphere. Try to get there on your visit, you will not be disappointed. Order a... More

We'll be staying at the Flamingo Bay Resort just down the street from Smith's Point and our favorite friends we made October 2015 - Penny and Kirk Williams ! We can't wait to see these wonderful people again. Wednesday night fish fry you have to experience Pennys! - The hosts with the most - their uplifting spirits are the attraction... More

Laurie and I have tried to plan a trip back to Grand Bahama Island for the last year but WORK is a hampering thing isn't it ... At Penny's on Smiths Point you won't meet two more wonderful people than Penny and Kirk Williams. They made our second visit to Grand Bahama Island so very special that we will get... More

Came for Smiths Point fish fry and didn't realize it was cash only, but waitress worked with us to make sure we had plenty of food and a great time as well!! Food was good, but beware fish has bones still in!! Definitely worth the experience on Wednesday!

Went to Smths Point for the Wednesday night fish fry and was "lured" into Penny's, and I'm so glad we were!! Food fabulous, service friendly and they introduced me to an amazing desert, Guava Duff Mmmmmmm. So good we returned the following week. People think the beach place is the best down here, but from what I saw (and tasted)... More

It was Friday, they advertise the fish fry is Wednesday and Friday. Friday is dead. Apparently this place is known locally for one day of the week Wednesday. Atmosphere: local... More

Went to Penny's for their Wednesday night Fish Fry. Food was great but the owner of the place, Kirk Williams, was awesome. He was very friendly, courteous, professional and most importantly, very genuine. He started the restaurant with virtually zero money and built the business from the ground up. He named the restaurant after his wife Penny ------how sweet Kirk.......

Went to the Wednesday fish fry here at Smith's Point, near Taino Beach. Tourist trap, but fun and funky. Food took WAY WAY too long though here at Penny's (we almost left), and we wouldn't return. Wasn't crowded, mostly people hanging around drinking, but they had on a few young boys on the floor working. It didn't seem to be... More

About as casual as you can get! Just like having dinner with family. Mom cooked, the kids waited tables! Rating is based on how it was, for what it is. This year, all my son could talk about was going back to Penny's (he's 11)! Outdoor dining, very casual. We went early and were one of the first people there.... More
