Big D's Conch was recommended to me and my family, so we decided to check it out. When we went, there was hardly anyone there, we had the restaurant and beach to ourselves. I ordered the conch and was very happy with my decision! The food was great, we were all happy. The location was probably what makes Big D's... More

Been meaning to write this for almost a year. Big D's was such a cool and special part of our winter vacation. Went once and had to go back on the same trip. Conch salad, Conch fritter, fresh fish... everything was tasty. Colorful rustic Bahamian setting with beautiful views. And Big D and the staff were so friendly. My son... More

Big D is a bigger than life man with a huge smile and a welcoming hug. Their salad made with fresh fruit was excellent and the view is amazing. What a pleasure it was to taste conch salad for the first time.

Even the locals go to Big D's. If you are traveling to Exuma, you would be remiss if you did not eat at Big D's. A friendly host and every Conch salad is made to order. You will never taste anything so refreshing and bursting with flavor. We ate several things on the menu and were happy with all of... More

Excellent, genuine Bahamian food that you can't get anywhere else. Plenty of spots to sit down and eat, we chose a picnic table 5 steps from the water. This is the reason why my husband and I go to the out-islands - real genuine food and people. Both got cracked conch, beans and rice, plantains, all cooked to order and... More

the food was mostly good. The Lobster Fettuccini was great....when we finally got it. It took over an hour to get our food, and they served it at different times. Everyone was finished with their meal, as I got mine.

After reading other travellers reviews, we were really looking forward to trying Big D's. However from the minute we arrived we just didn't get the right vibe. It's a great setting as with lots of other beach side restaurants, but for us it didn't have any atmosphere. My husband and son tried the conch salad and conch chowder and both... More
