Always FRESH!

Great food, excellent catering and the best "Stew Fish" on the island (that's a Sunday morning secret ritual...call to book ahead for your family or group:-)! Love and can't wait to have the spicy ribs again + his lobster pasta!

Cheater's is the best catering service on the island. Everything he cooks is consistently amazing...and he can always whip up some sides to accompany whatever fish or lobster you manage to catch that day! Makes a great rum cake too.

This time we got the cracked conch and the snapper. The conch was very well cooked and tasted delicious. Cheater knows how to bring the flavor of the conch and make it shine. The snapper was cooked with tomatoes and onions - super delicious. Again, another place that we always like coming to. The mac and cheese here is especially... More

We dined at cheaters with friends who live locally. The atmosphere is very simple but very welcoming. Cheater does not have a menu but only what is available and only the freshest. Many at the table had blackened grouper and some had cracked lobster. The fish was fresh the mashed potatoes were delicious and the steamed vegetables went perfectly. To... More

We arrived in Exuma and took a cab to our hotel. We asked the cabbie where to eat, and he took us to Cheaters. It's a bit of a drive out of George Town. When we arrived, my partner wanted to leave immediately. The decor was unprepossessing. However we were hungry and stayed. That night the barbecue was on, and... More

We didn't eat at the restaurant, but at the Heritage and Music Festival. I wanted to try their food as I hadn't had the opportunity before. The ladies there were great and advised what was fresher and 'better'. I enjoyed the red snapper and the conch. Very well prepared, tasty and surprisingly good coming from a booth! The rice and...

Can't get a better meal! Fish is always fresh, cracked conch is the most tender and the carrots are the best! Always a friendly atmosphere!

We tried this small restaurant for the first time over the holidays, having heard from several "locals" that it's one of the best on the island. We were not disappointed! I have no idea what "Supergut" is talking about in his or her review - it almost sounds like they reviewed the wrong restaurant! Cheater's is not "on a swamp,"... More

We went to Cheater's three nights out of 9 on Exuma because of our first night's meal. We were referred there by our hotel on a night their restaurant was closed. I'm a conch fan; Cheater serves the best cracked conch I've ever found in the Bahamas. He made us a conch salad (not normally on the menu) our second... More

Love the grouper fingers in here, have them as takeout on the way home from Georgetown. This place can get busy so its best to book in advance.
