Max is well known for his fresh conch salad. He masterfully prepares the salad before you, expertly wielding the knife to produce perfectly diced peppers, onion and conch. Also try the rum punch... if the right person is making it, a tasty "punch " is...More

Try the fresh and spicy conch salad while you have a Kalik or a rum cocktail. Sit at the bar and chat with the locals or get a seat for dinner.

Excellent beer, rum and traditional seafood. Just the place to hang out whilst you wait for your flight out or, just sit and soak up the atmosphere. Can’t wait to go back👍

Don't miss this small "Road Side" outdoor bar with the most unbelievable fresh made Conch Salad. Friendly staff. Menu is quite diverse and includes some of the lightest Conch Fritters I ever had.

Very little is open on Sunday's on Long Island as it is a religious place. More likely to be open is rowdy boys in Clarence town. Stella Maris and Santa Maria will also be open in the north of the island.
