Great as always

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... read 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.

Went here after seeing reviews. I'm a foodie. I enjoy hole in the wall restaurants. Place was the worst meal I've probably ever had. Set on a swamp. Flies could carry u away during the meal. Only drink they had was beer. Three things on the menu. 'Fried chicken' was chicken tenders. Everything was stuff they pulled put of the... More

I stayed in George town for over a week and came to Cheater's 3 times while I was there. Cheetah/Cheater or Julien was very nice and served great food. The first time, I had cracked lobster and my wife had a burger. Both were great. Second time around, we came for breakfast and had Turkey souse and eggs, both were... More
