I am a 31 y/o NYC professional who came to GC for a bachelor party dinner. Do not waste your time, money or patience on this over-priced, schmaltzy place - with over-priced food and underwhelming service. The staff tricked us into extra cigars and extra rounds of over-priced sugary drinks. We spent close to $250 each for over-dressed Caesar salad,... More

I was reminded of Commander's Palace in NOLA as my party entered the Graycliff: Lots of charm and elegance, but positively showing its age. The view from the upstairs patio dining room was very nice and the food was good, but not exceptional. As such the value was more a matter of the experience than the quality of the cuisine.... More

Great atmosphere. Romantic and cozy. Service was at first provided by several waiters who all warmly welcomed us by their name, so at the beginning it was really great. Then as our main course arrived everyone became a bit absent minded once we received our order. We asked different waiters several times for more tea before we actually found a... More

Who knew you could have a five-star, three-course meal for $30?!??!! Graycliff features a three course pre fixe menu for lunch from 12-3 (I think everyday, but might just be weekdays). Best (full) meal we had in the Bahamas and the absolute best value. We also ate at Poop Deck and Lucianos, spent more than triple for less than stellar... More

In a word, Graycliff is perfection. The service is perfect. The atmosphere is colonial Bahamian perfect. Everything I ordered was executed perfectly. The wines and liqueurs are beyond perfect! I rank it in my top three dining experiences of all time. And it's not really that expensive. I hope to dine there again in my lifetime.

Do not miss your opportunity to relax in the Graycliff's lounge. Sip on a cocktail and have a cigar rolled especially for you while you wait. Great piano. Great service. Great time. If you are looking for something classy and a little unique you will love it.

My husband and I always enjoyed this fine restaurant. This last trip on a saturday night was not our fine dining experience in the past. Food was not as good and service was a bit unprofessional from the hostess to the gift shop at the hotel. We have been back from our trip one week and still waiting to hear... More

Awesome brick oven pizza plus a bucket of 3 beers for just $20. Dining al fresco on the patio overlooking the beautiful grounds also a real treat. A very unique property worth a visit.

We took the Graycliff Chocolate Tour as an excursion through our cruise line. We had the BEST time! Kiki was knowledgeable, friendly and funny. We learned the basics about how chocolate is made, and then were set loose with plenty of our own chocolate to make a chocolate bar, dipped marshmallow, chocolate covered strawberry, a truffle and several clusters. Then,... More

This is a must stop for any one who wants to wine and dine.. The wine cellar and the hotel grounds are breathtaking. The staff of this auspices are fantastic . For those on a tight budget: the pizza section paired with great beers is the best deal on the Island in my estimation.
