The Point, outside Congo Town (tel. 242/369-4977), is the hot spot of the South Andros area. Native-born son George Farrington settled here after a decades-long career in a New York bank. When he couldn't find a place to get a good steak, an aged rum, a vintage bottle of wine, and a decent cigar, he decided to open this restaurant and bar. It has become an overnight success, drawing visitors from the Emerald Palms Resort. The cuisine is international, featuring not only steaks but also salmon and roast Cornish hens. Local dishes such as conch salad, cracked lobster, and the grilled catch of the day also appear on the menu. Fishermen returning from a day at sea sit on the porch overlooking Johnson Bay, swapping tall fish tales. Sometimes George brings in a rake 'n scrape (folk music) band or a Junkanoo troupe to entertain the crowds. Arrive at 5pm and you'll get free conch fritters and chicken wings, plus two drinks for $5.
