Max and his wife were the best hosts. The food, service and atmosphere was awesome! This is a must if you come to Long Island. The conch (cracked, fritters or salad) is the best. If you have an old vehicle tag, take it with you...More

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.

Max's is a fun local bar with the island vibe. We frequented Max's and the hog fish parmesan is to die for!

Take some time to relax outside and enjoy the cracked conch, beans and rice, conch fritters and plantain. The weather is hot, but they can help cool you down.

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.
