Across from the Royal Palm Hotel on Harbor Island is a place known as Mar’s Kitchen. The outer area of the small business is a landmark for locals to use when giving directions because of the license plate wall that adorns the side of the building.
It’s a bit run down looking from the outside. I actually stayed at the Royal Palm across the street and never ventured inside of Mar’s Kitchen. From all of the signs on the outside of the venue it appears that you can get these things from this small shack on the corner:
- Ice cream bars and popsicles
- Hamburgers, hotdogs and ham & cheese sandwiches
- Crab and dough
- Chicken nuggets
- Conchy conch fritters
- Chicken wings
- Coors Light
- Kalik (The beer of the Bahamas)
- Bacardi Gold Rum
This is not the normal scene on Harbor Island for restaurants. Most of the places to eat at are along the water’s edge and have a more appealing appearance than what Mar’s Kitchen does. To say the least, this place didn’t seem to have many visitors. Although there did seem to be a lot of locals who liked to hang out here. During anytime of the day there were always two to six people loitering outside.
