Seafood
Long before there was a boardwalk, friends Alonzo Cothron & Berlin Felton’s original establishment was a fish house. Boats would pull up right outside and throw the fish straight in!
We’ve changed a little since then, but the most important thing remains the same - guests can still kick back and experience the freshest, locally caught seafood in one hand, a cold beverage in the other, soak in the view, and watch the world go by.

    It’s what I had expected when I had seen it on the boardwalk. The atmosphere is the best part of the whole experience. Diana was extremely pleasant.

    We loved this place and their signature dish. We will return but my fish was over cooked so I must remember to tell them not to overcook the grouper.

    Wow extremely disappointed!! As we were seated we immediately noticed that AC system definitely had a problem , very hot and to add the table , floor and surroundings were not very clean , they need a major clean up for sure!! Then It took at least 15 minutes for our server to greet us , another at least 15 minutes more to get what I say was the worst margarita I have ever had , sent it back !! the seafood tower was brought to the table , what a horrible display of a wannabe tower , mediocre at best I regret ordering it . I don’t recommend this place at all, hope the get there act together, it’s a shame such a prime location , Many better restaurants than Alonzo’s that’s for sure !! Maybe I should have ordered a fish sandwich ???

    Good casual dining spot. Food was above expectations. Service - acceptable, but slow and not very attentive. Not their thing. Not trained. But position and food… worth a visit.

    Had a lovely dining experience at Alfonso’s oyster bar! We kicked off the evening with 2 dozens of their oysters, which they have 5 different varieties. Absolutely deliciously fresh! The Bahamian conch soup was the best one I’ve ever had! 5 stars. Kept dinner light with the avocado crab salad which was so yummy and flavorful. My only feedback is the food comes out very fast and the table is super small; hard to accommodate your entire food order. I suggest they pace themselves a little bit bringing out the food. Let guests finish eating their meals before bringing out the other orders. Keep up the great work!

    Food was incredible, got the small seafood tower and everything was so fresh and was brought out super quick. Beautiful presentation and absolutely delicious. Service was subpar, our water was never refilled and it took 45 mins before we were asked about dessert after clearing table. Also check took just as long. If you’re ok with a long wait between each course then you’ll have no issues.

    Food was good and really, really fast. Service was not the greatest. We ordered wine from the bar while we waited for our table. When we sat down we let the waitress know the wine was vinegared. She said, well you didn’t order it from me. We totally understood that we needed to go to the bar to have it replaced, but her response was a surprise. I went to the bar to replace the wine and after several attempts the bartender got done with her conversation with a server and finally asked what I needed. Her response to the bad wine was, it was opened yesterday. First time we actually left less than a 25% tip at a restaurant while on vacation. If service doesn’t bother you, the food was not bad.

    Amazing food with a view! We dined outside at sunset and it was a perfect evening! I highly recommend the coconut fried grouper. Best grouper/ seafood dish I’ve had in a long time! Also I highly recommend the Granny Smith coleslaw especially if you like creamy coleslaw.
