Here’s something a little different. The restaurant's bar floats on pontoons, beneath a canvas canopy, and looks out over the waters of Bell Channel, the waterway that provides access to for boats from the open sea into Port Lucaya Marina.
Lunch is often quick and easy, and not too expensive, consisting mostly of pastas, catch of the day, and huge salads. Dinner is something else entirely. It pays to make a reservation, because the Ferry House is popular, not only with the locals, but also with guests at Our Lucaya and Pelican Bay. The dinner menu features a seafood platter of calamari, fish, and shrimp; duck breast with potatoes and vegetables; fresh salmon with hollandaise sauce; savory grilled rack of lamb. The signature dish is ginger-and-honey-glazed tiger shrimp, served with a lobster bisque.
I’ve dined at the Ferry House several times and I’ve never been disappointed – the service is quick and concerned, and the food is always top drawer. Although it’s a little on the expensive side, the Ferry House is a great venue for that special evening out on the town. I highly recommend it. Lunch $15-$19; dinner $27-$39 plus drinks and desert. Open Monday through Friday from noon until 2pm and Tuesday through Sunday for dinner from 6pm until 9pm. Port Lucaya Marketplace. 242-373-1595.
