Conch is usually called cracked conch, not just conch for some reason.

Since Bob got so sick in Chub Cay from eating conch, he's avoided anything with Conch in the name like the plague. However, I was interested in this place (the Chamber of Commerce meetings are here) and persuaded him to go one night.

Their website says:
Serving From 11:00 A.M. until Midnight Every Day
Now Serving Breakfast Friday to Monday 7:00 A.M. until Noon

Favorite Dish: I had conch chowder and pizza, which was very good. I think Bob had a hamburger. The total with tip was $27.50

Their website says

"We use only the freshest seafood and finest ingredients. Start out your meal with our legendary Conch Chowder. Try some of our truly Conch Specialties - Conch Parmesan, Conch Joseph or our Cracked Conch Platter. Our Grouper & Dolphin are fresh from local waters. For the landlubbers, we offer Choice New York Strip Steak, Filet, Ribs and Chicken. And, on a lighter note, sandwiches and salads are always available."

The picture shows the pizza, the chowder and the doorstep with the cracked conch tiles, plus the outside of the restaurant in the background.
