Fro many years now, locals have gathered together to fry fresh fish together, turning the cooking and eating of their local staple into a fun social gathering. Due to their growing popularity, fish fries are now hosted by several restuarants and at several markets in the Bahamas. Grand Bahama Island is home to the B.T.V.I. Eatery, which indulges visitors' taste buds with its weekly Fish Fry Fridays.

B.T.V.I Eatery is located right next to the College of the Bahamas campus, which means that there is always guaranteed to be a big lively crowd of students ready to party the night away.
