This isn't five star dining but it is a really neat little spot. They make the conch salad outside and it is delicious. We had the fish platter, which was good but not what we expected. It was steamed in foil with veggies and, although it was good, we had been hoping for simple grilled fish. I'm sure they would probably do that for you if you asked. We would definitely go back.

We visited many different locations on the island during our week there. While there was nothing technically wrong here, it lacked in a few areas when compared with others.
Service is generally slow at most locations across Great Exuma, however, this was way slower.
Service was not bad, but it lacked in that most other places went out of their way to show their hospitality, while this was more like "order taking".
The food was not bad, however, it wasn't the type of thing that one would come back for.
Value was a big issue on this visit. Drinks were all ice, portion size seem really small for the price paid.

Not likely to go out of my way to return, but might stop in if it was on the way.

I loved the conch salad. The atmosphere at big d's was a riot. Big d is exactly that he is loud, exciting and welcoming. The location is great. Although we visited after 6:00 I can imagine spending the afternoon enjoying the beach and taking in the good times.

Ate at Big D's on Exuma twice. Friendly service, wonderful fish and conch and great view by the ocean. We at at Big D's on Stocking island once. We were starved and their hamburgers called our names. They were great!

Everyone on the island had told us that Big D's was the best place to go for fresh conch. Boy were they right! When we pulled up, the place looked like paradise. The view was like a post card and the food was just as good. We had the conch salad which was made to order when we arrived. It was served like ceviche with some hot sauce and all fresh ingredients. Very flavorful and fresh. The cracked conch basket was my favorite. It was fresh conch flash fried and served hot with dipping sauce. Fantastic and worth going back to over and over again.
