We stopped for lunch and were told by another couple that the conch fritters were to die for! My husband enjoyed the blackened conch and I devoured the fritters! Big D was extremely friendly and made us feel so welcome! A must go location when in Exuma.

Kick back and have a local beer at an outdoor table at this brightly colored Bahamin favorite. The stunning views come free with a really good meal. We had the local favorite conch salad, fried shrimp and a grouper basket. The salad is made in view and doesn't get fresher than that. All were excellent!

Conch salad highly recommended. Otherwise lots of fried, fried, and more deep fried stuff. Bahama mama drink was good and beer was very cold. Atmosphere was cool. Beach hut with great views and breezes. Flys were bothersome outside. Owner was very nice

The place is definitely on island time, so don't go if you want to get in and out quick. But, with the view, who cares how long you have to wait? The waiters are friendly, and you can watch the divers jump into the sea and pull your conch fresh out of the water. The snapper is yummy, and the... More

Every meal in Exuma is slow. You just have to factor that in. This place has atmosphere out the wazoo, a very warm vibe (seems to be essentially a multi-generational family enterprise). Setting is right on a beautiful beach. We were advised to order items that were "off da grill" which meant cooked on a grill but in a foil... More
