This restaurant/bar is now called Ballyhoo's and this is the ONE Restaurant on the island that I would NOT come back to. Came here for dinner as a group of 3 adults. Got there a bit early and got a nice table by the water. Didn't know it was a 'band' night (Thursday, I think) but the band arrived and... More

Our group ate several dinners and two breakfasts at the Ballyhoo (formally Jolly Roger), during our week stay at Bluff House Resort. It was so convenient....just a simple walk down the road. The dinners were all good. A couple of my favorites were the Caesar Salad and the Coconut Shrimp. At breakfast, we all had either the Traditional Egg breakfast... More

We had lunch here a few times and we're not disappointed. We anchored our Sailboat out front and dingyed in. The view was gorgeous and the service and food the best we had in Green Turtle. The grouper sandwich was delicious and not expensive.

wow, we were shocked how bad the food was. And expensive even by Green Turtle standards. Fish overcooked, fries undercooked, food did not come out all at once and we were a party of six in a nearly empty place. Flies all over, which I know can't be helped, but the strong smell of incense didn't help the matter. nothing... More

The Jolly Roger is now the "Ballyhoo" and continues as a part of the Bluff House resort. It offers a great location with views across White Sound, with easy docking if coming by boat. The menu is very limited but the food is fresh and well prepared, and so are the daiquiris. Very nice place for lunch, and well recommended..

Every dish we tried was excellent! Just introduced was Coronation Chicken which was outstanding. Conch fritters were some of the best we ever had. Our favorite breakfast was The Bluff House Eggs Benedict with grouper and crab.

The restaurant/bar at the Bluff House features poolside dining and cool drinks served either inside or on the patio overlooking the Marina. Great food and drink in a very nice environment.
