Mango's Seaside Grill, Barnes Bay

Barnes Bay
Tel: 264 497 6479's insider take:

By "seaside," Mango's means literally on the sand. This open-air, candlelit restaurant looks like the white-wooden porch of a beloved beach house. The menu focuses on fish, preparations are simple, the quality of ingredients is high, and, unlike those at its gourmet peers, prices are reasonable. Start with the richly flavored conch chowder and move on to a spicy blackened lobster or a very tender steamed whole snapper. Desserts, such as Key lime and lemon pie, are simple but well executed. Two warnings: The owner can be brusque, and the music can be loud (but fun). Check the schedule if you'd prefer to have a quieter meal.

Open Wednesdays through Mondays 7 to 9:30 pm. Closed August through October.
