We stopped here because everything else was closed, and it had been a long day. Everyone was ready for a rum something. The people were very friendly, the drinks were average but in the $10 a drink price range.

We stumbled on this place after spending the day at a nearby beach. The grouper was amazing, some of the best we had on the island. The views were great too! We will definitely be back!

We had such a good time at Houseman on the Bay. My guess is we were the only tourists in there, which earned us a couple of funny looks, but everyone was incredibly nice. The food was fantastic! Fish caught and cooked the same day...More

Food --- ample choice. Local variety. Fish, curried meat , burgers, conch etc. with accompaniments. Houseman --- welcoming / friendly / knowledgeable host. Very popular venue. Outside space --- deck on beach. Busy and frequented by locals --- brilliant atmosphere. Reasonably priced. Absolutely highly recommend.
