We had rented a house on Great Guana Quay and Nippers was the local entertainment and the only place to eat. The drinks were huge and the place gets louder and a little wild as the evening wears on. Great location overlooking the beach, with the open decks and the pool. The food was middle of the... read more

We ate lunch at Nippers 2 times while in the Bahamas. The grilled fish burger and the fried conch are excellent. You can walk down to the beach after you eat which is perfect. You must have the Nipper drink which is awesome. Three nippers and you will need help walking but it is worth it! Excellent restaurant. We will... More

Went this past Sunday for my third or fourth visit. They have a pig roast on Sundays but we elected to skip that and fave fried shrimp instead. Great beach, great view, good food, good drinks, good music, 2 swimming pools. Just a fun place to visit.

My husband and I returned recently from a week in Great Guana Cay and ate at Nipper's at least 3 times while there. Nippers, and pretty much everywhere on the island, is definitely casual beachfront dining, but the food was quite good, the beer cold, the Goombay Smashes yummy, and the service friendly and efficient. We enjoyed dining outdoors (although... More

Nippers is a must see and a staple of original restaurant/bars in the islands. The views from the bar are incredible. The beach and pool area are great. The food is very, very average and the prices are above standard. Mostly fried food served on disposable plates with plastic utensils. No matter what time of year you go, the flies... More

We went to Nippers on our first night in Great Guana. It is quickly heading into low season, so the place was fairly empty. The food was excellent, the catch of the day was delicious, even the burgers were perfectly done. The service was OK. The place was rustic. Average $26 per person plus tip. I will go back before...

Was excited to go to "nippers" due to other reviews on the internet. Apparently, the place is amazing when "barefoot man" is playing. We had awful service, the waitresses were rude and came back multiple times to ask what we had ordered. The gift shop has odd hours and closes late, we went to Nippers to have a drink and... More

You simply cannot visit the Abaco's without a trip to Nippers. Unique & always fun. Enjoy their famous rum drinks with the world's best Bleu Cheese Burger and then go snorkeling off their beach! Lots of parties, pool, gift shop and really good food all on one of the most beautiful ocean beaches to be found.
