Very good conch salad and cold beer on the way to Dean's Blue Hole. Cool decor of the bar and super friendly service. Spot the international flags and the restaurant is opposite to those flags.

We were needing lunch and there was a little rain squall, so we ducked in. I would plan to eat lunch here during the rain. Just fun to be "outside" during the rain. Seemed like there was camaraderie among us patrons—we shared our bug spray, because the "no-see-ums" want out of the rain as well. Food was good, watching the... More

We ate at a number of place on the island, but ended up back here the most. We had the Cracked Lobster, Parmesan Hogfish, Jerk Chicken, Cuban Sandwich, Burgers and, of course, lots of Conch Salad. Excellent spot with a great vibe-just look for the flags on the side of the road!

My husband stopped for a small conch salad and a beer each and were charged $47 (worth at most $24). It took at least 45n minutes to get served, Max making quite a show of dicing onions and such.This is a real tourist trap!

Hi Claire, First of all thank you for visiting Max Conch Bar and I am sorry that your experience was not the best it should be. I would like to take this opportunity to rectify the situation. The price of our conch salad is $5.00 for the cup size and $10.00 for the bowl our beers are $4.00 each there... More

Max's is the gathering place on the island for visitors to the island, ex-pats and local islanders. It is always packed with interesting people from all over the world. Gary's conch salad is world renowned but it is the eclectic atmosphere of different people that make it a must visit if you are on Long Island. You would be surprised... More

This was a highlight of a week on Long Island. My husband had the conch salad and it was the best he's ever eaten. Max was very friendly and made us feel so welcome.

Great authentic Bahamian food served in a fun, casual environment by friendly people! Well known for their conch salad which is not to be missed. The menu changes daily but usually includes conch fritters, cracked conch, curry chicken and ribs. Sides of rice and peas, Mac and cheese and fired plantain were our favourites. Accompanied by Sands or Kalik Bahamian... More

We drove down from Whymms Villas to visit Clarencetown and stopped at Max's on our way home. We had the famous conch salad which was made right in front of us. I normally do not eat raw seafood but when it was mixed in with the vegetables and drenched in fresh lemon and lime juice, I loved it. I also... More

Conch salad is great as well as the conch fritters. Nice vibe and also very close to the airport. We went to check in and then drove there to have lunch before our flight
