The place looks wonderful with a great view and music. However, I question their alcohol as after 2 Belvedere drinks there this afternoon I've had the hang over I would get after drinking cheap out of a plastic bottle vodka. Also, the hamburger meat smelled...rotten and tasted awful. I took a couple of bites but it tasted nasty and I could smell the stinky rotten meat from inches from my face. I would come back but not for food and only drinks out of a can or bottle like soda or beer. The fact that the crappy meal that ruined my afternoon with an awful headache cost over $100 adds insult to injury.More

The food is delicious! The staff very friendly! It’s a club and children are permitted which one finds odd. Go enjoy the night and dance away.

We had an excellent meal at Big John's. We ordered the Sampler-$50 and every item was very good. The staff and manager were very friendly and came by often to make sure we had everything we needed. They took the time to chat with us...about the island and give us some local tips. Nice music, lovely atmospher,e very clean and efficient service. We will return.More

Zero Stars. Way overpriced. It's cheaper to go to Resorts World. The music is so OVER POWERING you can't have a normal conversation, let alone talk to your server to place your order. Left with a head ache.

The service was excellent and the food too but I have to say that it was a little bit over price. Also, you need to pay either cash or zelle.

If I could give it a zero star, I would. They opened back up a couple of months ago. They’ve got tons of potential and staff but they’re not trained, the food was not even warm. Showed on the menu that they accept MasterCard and...Visa. Also showed they had a wine selection. Was told “we don’t have wine” by the server. Saw several bottles of wine at the bar. Didn’t say anything. We’ve been in all of the islands of the Bahamas for 5 months and I’ve been more than generous and gracious to locals. At the end of the meal, which seemed to be prepared way in advance of us arriving, I was told cash only. Then I noticed they added 18% gratuity to the bill. Plus 12% VAT tax of course. We were leaving to go back to the States the next day so I’d spent up all of my Bahamian cash on purpose. It was starting to storm and lightening and was expected to go to the ATM up the street for cash. Luckily, I found American cash in my backpack. Then waited on my change. It never came. I’ll never waste money here again. Oh, and the drink prices are the highest in all of the Bahamas. As if they’re not high enough already. Live and learn..... I was still nice. I’m a guest here but sometimes enough is enough.More

The place has been completely remodeled. Awesome service and beautiful staff. It was only open for a few special guest since there was ongoing remodeling. MUST GO IN BIMINI. Hooka was great. Water is amazingly beautiful.

The food is average not more. It takes forever to get the food. The location is the best you can ask for. Just on the sharks duck. Its hard not to see sharks over there.

Near the harbor entrance to Bimini adjoining Brown's Marina. I will always have at least one meal here when in Bimini but I HATE cash only when out of the USA. Food is seafood oriented which is appropriate watching the boats go in and out...of the harbor. Can't go wrong with any of the food.More
