Whitsundays (Hamilton Island),
Whether it's high noon, happy hour, or late Saturday night, locals love to mingle at this sprawling Front Street sports bar. The extensive menu has all the pub fare classics—potato skins, nachos, and local fish and chips. Bermudians often frequent this restaurant to watch their favorite teams on the big screen. Go for the English beef pie, wahoo bites, or a fish sandwich, and sip your dessert—a Dark 'n Stormy—out on the porch as you watch Bermuda stroll by. Food is served until 10 pm but beware the nighttime crowd; Dockies, as it's known locally, is generally more popular as a drinking venue and can get quite overcrowded and loud, with live DJs common in summer months. Stop by on weekend mornings to cure your hangover with a hearty full English breakfast from 11 am.
Spring Garden Restaurant & Bar
If you've never had Barbadian, or as Barbados natives like to call it, "Bajan" food, grab a seat in the shade of a palm tree and try panfried flying fish—a delicacy in the islands. Another good choice is the broiled mahimahi served in creole sauce. During lobster season, an additional menu appears, featuring steamed, broiled, or curried lobster. For dessert, try coconut cream pie or raspberry-mango cheesecake. This spot can get lively on Fridays—eat with the locals at the lunchtime buffet and then enjoy a live DJ starting at 10 pm.
