Couldn't decide between the lobster and the conch so had both! Really nice guy and amazing food :) Service with Bernie was better than at the "fancy" place next door. Highly recommend.

Bernie's food is cooked fresh to order. His grilled conch and conch salad were great. He and Bernadette are friendly and ensure everyone is well fed and having a great time. When in Freeport this is a place to not miss.
