On the north side of Fresh Creek, a block or so east of the bridge, this restaurant and bar is shaded by coconut palms and graced with clear views of the water. Eat inside, where plastic chairs and flowered tablecloths define the vibe, or outside on the spacious deck. Bahamian specialties—steamed, fried, or baked fish or chicken; ribs; shrimp; and pork chops—make it a favorite hangout for locals and visitors, especially for the Saturday-night parties. Fresh lobster,
prepared to your liking, is available in season (August–March). Hank's signature cocktail, aptly named "Hanky Panky," is a dynamite frozen rum–and–fruit juice concoction. At press time, the restaurant was open but up for sale; call ahead.
