The Grouper was cooked to perfection! So far the best Grouper I've had this time around in the Bahamas. Nippers is a young peoples' place, first, and an all time drinker place, second. High school kids walking around drinking beers and such. Drunk people laughing raucously. Brightly painted everything. Cute pool, decent beach. Loud music. If you are a drinker,... More

As first time visitors to Abaco we were really looking forward to attending the Sunday Pig Roast. What we found was a huge disappointment. If you like overpriced drinks and food, surly serving staff and an atmosphere that says "you should feel grateful for allowing us to attend the best bar in the world"then this place is for you. It...

The only thing better than being at Nippers is being at Nippers during a Barefoot Man concert. And if you are really lucky you might see THE GREAT ZAMBINI a.k.a. MAGIC MAN. Remember to take it easy on the Nipper Juice!

We have visited Nippers on many occasions; it just seem to get better each time. The food has really improved over the years. Of course there is no better view on the planet than at Nippers. We found the place to be quite crowded for a Tuesday. Lot's of beach folks. Seems like spring break is about us. Our waitress... More

We've been going to Nippers for years and always have a great time. Whether there are 6 people or 600, the vibe is always fun and upbeat. The tuna is amazing as it is as fresh as you can get. This is a beach bar second to none. New Year's eve is a celebration of life!

We went here three times during a two week stay. The service was good on two days. Our regular server wasn't there on the third trip. The staff that day ignored anyone not sitting at the bar, so we left. On the days we stayed: The food is pretty good. I assumed the pig roast would include a pig on... More

The reason that Nipper's is famous throughout the Bahamas is not for the food (although the food isn't bad at all), it's for the "adult slurpees" (just ask for a "Nipper's") that will knock you on your behind. They're tasty and very strong, but you don't feel it right away. Then all of a sudden--BAM--you can hardly walk. So beware.... More

This place is a blast.... The nippers are one of the tastiest frozen drinks I have had! They pack a punch and will sneak up on you!! :) I don't recall the food being great but let's be realistic if you're going there for the food you're missing the point. They have a gift shop full of everything from boxers... More

Go to Nippers on Sunday to drink nipper juice and feast on the pig roast. Most everyone else will be there. Afterwards, go to Grabbers for a "grabber" and the fresh water pool

Nippers is on most people's visit list although I would not go unless you were up in that area for something else like fishing. It is not at all authentic and for some reason seems to attract everyone in the bahamas that smoke cigarettes. The location and views are the real reason to go and the food is very average... More
