Very highly recommended is the conch sauteed in rum and butter sauce, cracked (fried) conch, and conch salad. The conch shacks are cheap, casual, and an experience you will not find anywhere else.
The food is great, fresh, and you will know you are not paying for atmosphere (although the atmosphere is quite delightful!).
To get to the conch shacks, take the Blue Hills Road off the Leeward Highway, and once on the Blue Hills Road, turn right at the first paved road which will dead end at the sea. Turn right or left and you will find one.
