Ma Ruby's Restaurant

The inspiration for Jimmy Buffet's "Cheeseburger in Paradise," Ma Ruby's Restaurant is without a doubt the best place to grab a burger in the Bahamas.


Although you'll likely stop here to grab a burger, there are plenty of other options available, including cracked conch and fish stew. Don't leave without driving the key lime pie or coconut tarts.

Ma Ruby's Restaurant is a grill where they proudly serve their take on Caribbean cuisine. One can expect the setting and food here to be very casual. The option to eat here is on the table during both dinner and lunch, so make time to stop by; you could find a new favorite food.


The building itself has a rustic charm that makes each guest feel as though they are being welcomed home.
