We arrived early, around 6:30pm, but still had to line up for approximately 30-minutes. Absolutely worth every minute of that wait and I'd do it again tomorrow! We parked across the street. By the time we got our food the line to this fish hut was more than twice as long. Lots of locals in the line to Pats Place, which is always a good sign. A definite must for visitors to Barbados.

Friday night. They know they will be swamped. But they don't bother to get extra staff! That is not the servers' problem, incredible flaw in their act rests squarely on the management. Given the economy in Barbados, finding people to work shouldn't be a problem.
I was not expecting incredible, personal service. I've been here before. But I was not expecting a 'You're still here?!?' look from the waitress, half an hour after she said she'd come back.

We came on a weekday and Oistins Fish Fry wasn't busy. All stands radiate a no-nonsense plastic chair picnic atmosphere. Only a few stands were open and we decided for the busiest: Pat’s Place. We were not disappointed. Good tuna steak, fries OK and mediocre green salad. We returned every evening. On Friday hundreds of people are having dinner at Oistins Fish Fry. At Pat’s Place a long queue. Again a good sign. The place is in the path of landing aircraft but this hardly disturbs. Recommended.

We came here on Christmas Day. Although the area was kinda quiet with only one karaoke system being played, Pat's Place was lively! We ordered the Dolphin (Mahi-mahi) and flying fish fry with sides of macaroni pie, coleslaw, rice & beans and pasta salad. The dolphin was decent (a bit dry and bland). The macaroni pie and the rice & beans were also decent. However, the flying fish fry, coleslaw, and the pasta salad were all very good, especially the sweet coleslaw and the crunchy flying fish fry! Yum! Everything was reasonably priced too, which was great! This is definitely the place to eat for quality food at a great price!

The locals have recommended this place for the best fish fry experience in Oistins. And it was excellent! There are 7-8 fish options available (we had flying fish and dolphin) with a bunch of sides to chose from - the fire roasted potatoes were great (add some hot sauce).
Keep in mind, that you may get your food a lot faster if you order it at the register and pick up your sides right away. All the locals seem to be doing so. Many tourists however seem to prefer being served by the waiters - and it takes quite awhile!
