This is adjacent to the Casino tables and machines which are part of the huge new triple Hôtel complex!
The food and drinks here are much more competitively prices than the rest of the complex.
We had five meals here and there were all good so well worth trying !

If you’re looking for pretty good pub food than this place is for you. The menu has wide variety and is served in an informal/casual atmosphere.

It took over 40 minutes to get our food and only served half of it. Took 20 minutes to get the rest I clueing dressing for my salad. One item wasn’t even delivered until our meal was over. Then they expected me to pay for everything. The menu looked great but I don’t think they can manage the crowds or the service is just poor because the tip is Included

We ordered the Salmon filet and it came with vegetables. The food was tasty but too oily.

Very attractive restaurant with, as everywhere in the Bahamas, very friendly staff. I had the old fashioned off the menu and enjoyed it enough but would not order it again. The food was uninspiring but would satisfy most American diners and their families (bar food prepared by cooks that know what their doing). I had the mussels and fries, listed as an app but could feed one as a meal. My wife has the fish and fries, a good enough preparation. The big screen TVs are visible everywhere but volumes were low so it’s not too intrusive. Prices were also not too expensive. I would not encourage anyone to seek this place out but if you’re in the casino or just want something good nearby then I would recommend it.

Food was okay, however the wine was horrible. I have never had a bottle of wine that I just could not drink. My wife and I can always drink an entire bottle with dinner, but we left more than half of the bottle there. And the waiter never seemed to care that we were leaving it, didn't ask, didn't care. We had some great restaurants at Baha Mar, but I would not recommend this one.

I thought this was really expensive for a sports bar. The service was great and my wife's sandwich was good, but my fish and chips were a disappointment (though the waiter gets props for bringing malt vinegar upon request!) You're better off going to one of the more upscale places and paying almost the same price for a better meal.

The restaurant was good, but not fabulous.
Burgers, water, an app and a pasta dish—over $200 for our ticket. If you go to Baha Mar this is a “reasonable” option, but pizza lab is a much better deal for a family

We got a burger and poutine fries and it costs us $50. The burger was good but not $24 good. Next time I would go to the food trucks on site to get a $15 burger and $5 fries.

My husband and I were here for a meeting. We ate on the beach earlier and it was expensive. This was less expensive, but nothing special. We had conch fitters which were tasty, mussels which were overcooked. My husband had a burger which was quite good. Beer is expensive, but no more than other nearby places. Food came out hot and quickly.

We were sat next to a large wall blocking all the tv’s. Ordered drinks that didn’t come for 20 minutes. Appetizer- the nachos were the best thing of the meal. Our meals came 20 minutes apart! My husband ordered bbq ribs. What he received was ribs with Asian teriyaki sauce on them. The macaroni and cheese was supposed to have bacon, it didn’t. My fish and chips was an entire fish, not cut up, so it was so dry. There is an automatic 15% gratuity so our server barely came to the table. I would never go again!

Best restaurant in Bahamas on our trip this year. The food was all delicious and aesthetically pleasing. Very cool decor. The only thing lacking was service- a little slow. And pretty loud. Overall, fantastic experience. Will be back.

Walked into the restaurant for 6:30pm reservation. Other patrons were watching the football playoffs & enjoying their meals. Given we were on vacation, we were looking forward to doing likewise. Boy were we mistaken. I guess they don’t know that ASIANS watch football, eat wings & drink beer also.

By 7:30 pm, the waitress asked whether we wanted to order anything else. I told her we weren’t sure as 2 of us were still eating our meals. Minutes later, she brought us our check and stood there waiting for me to sign. Like I said, we were still eating our meal. Minutes later, while my wife and daughter went to the restroom, a waiter cleared our table taking the remainder of my daughter’s fries and wings with them. I asked our waitress why we were getting the rush job. She said that we could stay at our table if we wanted and finish our drinks.

Ten minutes later, the hostess told us we would have to leave our table but she would “ALLOW US” to stand near the door and watch the last few minutes of the game. As I stood there, I could not help but notice we were the only party asked to give up their table. The other patrons were allowed to keep their tables.

The hostess could not explain why if it is restaurant practice to allow diners around 1 1/2 hours to finish their meals, we were given our check & told to leave our table after around 1 hr & 10 minutes. The hostess claimed the next party who reserved our table had arrived and we would have to leave. Nobody else was seated at that table during the time we stood in the back of the restaurant.

We dined at several of the Bahamar restaurants this trip and never encountered treatment like this. As we left the restaurant, I don’t know for certain why we were singled out but its sad for the management to allow it to happen.
