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

We have eaten at Santana's and trust me if you want great grouper you will go to Cheater's that was the best fist I have ever eaten in 52 years of eating fish. It was such a great meal I will go back several times before our vacation if over. Very friendly, Fast service, I love it there.

This was definitely our favorite meal on the island. I try the cracked conch everywhere we go in Exuma and this was the best! You can tell who uses frozen and who uses fresh and Cheater's won't serve it unless it's fresh. My husband had the cracked lobster and that was fantastic as well. The meals came with peas n... More
