All-you-can-eat fish fry Ocean Club style at The Golf Clubhouse restaurant
You get to choose your seafood – you have a choice of three from a menu that includes fried or grilled snapper, grouper fingers, beer-battered fish fillet, lemon fried shrimp and cracked conch; and if you don’t like fish – island cracked chicken is an option.
Then you choose your sauce from amongst Cajun mayo, rum dip, pepper sour or tartar sauce.
Pick a side to round out the meal – rake-n-scrape veggies, home fries, fried potato chippers, onion rings and peas n’ rice.
The lavish meal that’s set before you is the Fish Fry – Ocean Club style at The Golf Clubhouse restaurant at Ocean Club Estates.
The heaping meal is enough to make you want to run for the hills, but consider the fact that while you’re sitting at the table it’s all you can eat, so you can order to your heart’s content.
To end it all, you choose a sweet treat from the options of guava duff, chocolate rum cake, brownies or cheesecake and cookies.
The Fish Fry takes place every Friday at The Golf Clubhouse restaurant and has been going on for a little over a month. It has been attracting loads of attention, because all Bahamians love a good fish fry and an all-you-can-eat that doesn’t come from a buffet line. Also, being cooked fresh in the kitchen upon your request is an added bonus.
Restaurant manager Taminqua Cooper said the fish fry was the result of wanting to do something for their guests, rather than them having to travel to Arawak Cay or under the Paradise Island bridge in search of Bahamian cuisine. With their members constantly requesting grilled snapper and grouper, they just decided to call it a fish fry, then took it a step further and opened it up to the public.
Cooper also said it’s becoming increasingly popular since their opening night when they did approximately 50 covers and they now do triple digits on fish fry nights.
With Alia Coley’s vocals lending to the evening from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. – the $60 adults, $35 children price tag, plus VAT and gratuity, make the evening worth it.
“It’s a fish fry on a higher level, and people are appreciating that,” said Cooper.
The Clubhouse offers more than just Fish Fry Fridays, with their wine Swirl events, as well as their wine dinners – they are hosting the Stag’s Leap Winery on Saturday, August 25 with wine master Ewan Proctor. They’ve also opened up their party on the patio for homeowners to the public as well.
