You are vacationing on Harbor Island in the Bahamas and you have eaten at so many fancy and fabulous restaurants that your dress up pants are starting to get tight. If you want to take a break from fancy restaurants and the dress codes that come with them, you may want to check out Ma Ruby’s. Ma Ruby’s Harbor Island is a casual dining spot in Dunmore Town. The restaurant is part of the Tingum Village Resort.

Food at Ma Rudy’s Harbor Island

Ma Ruby’s Restaurant Harbor Island is most famous for its cheeseburger, which was the inspiration for the Jimmy Buffett song, “Cheeseburger in Paradise.” If you are not into cheeseburgers, they have plenty of other selections. You can get fried conch fritters or fingers. They offer a variety of deli sandwiches, including grilled cheese, fried fish, and tuna sandwiches.

Be sure to get an order of the garlic toast if you are having a salad. Salads include lobster, conch and a particularly tasty and tangy Caesar salad. The side dishes include some perfectly golden French fries, onion rings with an amazingly delicious batter, and a creamy and tangy cold slaw. There are also a few sides that you would be unlikely to find at a burger place in the United States, including peas and rice and plantains.

Ma Ruby’s Harbor Island offers several desserts every day, but the one consistent is the creamy and tart key lime pie. They have a full bar that offers some delicious blended drinks that are so sweet, they qualify as a dessert. There are also some exceptionally strong rum-based drinks. The Bahaman beers they serve make for a perfect companion for the restaurant’s fried food.

Ma Ruby’s Restaurant Harbor Island has been around for over 20 years and was started by May Ruby, a well-known and beloved local businesswoman. Today, her kids run the restaurant, and it has a reputation for having the friendliest service in town.
