We rented a golf cart to explore the island and this was the recommended lunch spot. The food was really good. We ordered inside and they told us to take a seat outside and they would bring the food to us. Everyone was super friendly!

Lucy Bell's looks like someone house when you drive down the road on your golf cart. The food is great. When you go inside you order and then go sit outside. Don't be late they close at 2:45.

Excellent local food cooked in front of you. Sit outside at a picnic table. Very low-key and homey. Not fancy.

We wanted breakfast but they no longer serve that. Lunch was wonderful, reasonably priced and in an amazing outside setting.
