Setting is beautiful

I've been to Big D's several times. Drinks are great, food is always good and the Conch salad is some of the best ever! Nice views and beach to hang out, very clean and good music is usually playing! Great place to relax. Big D is very personable and is always there mingling with his guests! Fun place and great... More

I'm an island girl so believe me when I say most definitely our meal of Bahamian cracked conch was #oceantotable #seatoplate. The unbelievable tenderness of the conch evidenced that it was fer sure fresh catch. This was a meal that we enjoyed so much that we savored the flavourful taste of every bite. I highly recommend this coastal restaurant that... More

We stopped at Big D's for a late lunch coming back from a wonderful but tiring day at Coco Plum Beach. The atmosphere was terrific as usual and our friends had a wonderful time. The wings were excellent! We will be back :)

My boyfriend and I came here twice because we found the conch salad to be so delicious. We also tried the grilled conch which was my favourite dish. The grilled conch comes with onions, peppers, sweet potatoes, plantains and a side of peas and rice. So delicious. We both don't like fried conch because it loses the flavour so we... More

Big D personally greeted us on arrival and welcomed us with genuine gusto. Conch salad was best on island and view was second to none - by far our favorite impromptu stop on our trip.

Food in the Bahamas can be startlingly expensive and sometimes lacking in quality. Big D's was one of the more reasonable spots I saw and the food was good. We arrived around lunchtime and ordered conch fritters. They were some of the best I've had. We also had the grouper sandwich, it was good, but I'm from Florida so I'm... More

Beautiful night having dinner out in the sand by the ocean! The kids ran and played while waiting on the food. Nice Bohemian music played in the background!

Big Ds was a fun little spot to have a drink and eat the famous conch salad! That was very delicious. Fresh and healthy. Also one of the few places you can buy some authentic island souvenirs.
