Great location!

Went here for an early dinner and to spend some time relaxing and enjoying the scenery. It's a beautiful location! Love the building with its bright colors and outdoor bar and eating area. That's where we started out but the flies were horrendous so we moved inside where they were even worse! They... read more

Went today with my husband as big D's came highly recommended. The service was very good and friendly however I was a little disappointed with the food. I ordered a chicken burger - which was delicious (& you could tell it was fresh) but my fries and vegetables looked as though they came from frozen packets which was a little... More

Stopped in here based on a local recommendation. Didn't have an conch but enjoyed the drinks! Had the grouper which was tasty and very fresh. Service was very friendly and attentive though after serving 3 of the 4 advised they were out of bread for the hamburger one ordered. Normally I would have this at a 3 rating at most... More

Conch salad is fresh and delicious. Conch fritters are great and so affordable. Everything was really good and the view is incredible. We went late afternoon and sat outside for hours. Only caution is don't order the whole snapper. Good but very tiny. Others loved their fish and cracked conch sandwiches.

Stopped by Big D's on a whim, and boy am I glad we stopped. Great grouper fingers, Conch Salad was awesome, and the Conch Chowder was out of this world. Nice atmosphere right on the water and beach with the bright colors of the tables and chairs. Loved it. Met Big D on a second visit, very very nice gentleman.... More

Exumians talked us into Big D's for the conch fritters. We stopped by after our half day boat tour. Try the Radlers Beer for sure. Ginger beer is also available here. The Grouper was really good. The cheeseburger is nothing to rave about

Nice clean place on a beautiful stretch of beach. In between the airport and BarreTarre lies Big D's Conch Stop. We visited one afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed the conch salad, especially when we saw the live conch removed from the shell right in front of us. It't doesn't get any fresher than that! Grouper fingers were tasty, served hot. Drinks... More
