This is a reasonable place to get takeout or to bring your food to the back deck. The portion size is enough for 2! There is no longer a "restaurant" on site, only a "takeout" window. The view back on the deck is spectacular. Best...More

Great place for an inexpensive takeaway or sit on the deck and watch the ocean whilst you eat and enjoy a cold beer 😊

Go for the view and the cold beer. Eat somewhere else. Fries were so greasy they were like rubber. The shrimp was ok at best. Food is expensive everywhere, so I wouldn't recommend eating here.

Food is very good and a great value. amazing ocean views from the deck. Best for lunch. Dinner time is frequented by locals to have some drinks and the place is a bit dark at night.

We rented a cottage about 1 mile from Houseman on the Bay. Ordered their fish for takeout several nights during our stay. The price was good and so was the food. Not much for sit down; but great place for takeout.

Not a big tourist spot, but the waitress was very nice and the food was decent. Heavily fried food, but good if you want to get off the beaten path and watch some Bahamian news at the bar. They have a huge party deck on...More
