  • Came here after talking to the locals and being encouraged to stop by even if for a few minutes. Definitely glad we came and experienced this. The vibe was great, everyone was friendly, love music...  more »
  • We have gone to this two years in a row during our vacations down there - the food is amazing, drinks served IN a pineapple, and local talent performances. Also love that they have local vendors...  more »

  • Fish Fry happens every Thursday night at Bight Park. It starts at around 5:00pm and picks up at about 6:00pm. There are plenty of local vendors that sell T-shirts and souvenirs. We got some magnets and a conch. Then grabbed a few soaps and bubble bath bombs made by the local. It reminds me of a store in the US called Lush which I am a big fan of. We tried the local food and handsome fried grouper and cracked conch. The fried grouper was very tasty, crunchy on the outside and soft and buttery on the inside but the conch was just okay. Live music (DJ) made it a lively event for the locals and visiting tourists. A must do and I highly recommend at TCI!
  • The fish fry was interesting. There wasn't much to do but you can try their fish and lobster. It's like a small market where you can buy food and souvenirs.
