“Good, local food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

This was our first meal on Exuma. We arrived after dark and Houseman's happened to be close to where we were staying. Wonderful local food. Great whole snapper, chicken and shrimp. Rustic outside dining by the ocean.

“Best Place to eat in Georgetown!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

Having been in Georgetown many times and tried many restaurants.....this is the best! Especially for fresh fish and my personal favorite cracked conch! A nice bonus is the fabulous view of the the Exuma waters! I am a regular and loyal customer! Check it out! LK from US/Williams Cay.

“Fantastic View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

We ate lunch here, pretty much minutes after getting off the plane. Outdoor deck has fantastic views and really helped us get into vacation mode - pretty much instantly. Menu was limited, but what we had was good - I had shrimp, husband had conch. Large portions, nicely prepared. Was a bit pricy ($36 for two lunches, bottled water and beer) - but we found the pricing to be in line with other restaurants on the island. Great choice.

“Great View and Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

The menu choices were similar to many other places on the island and good. The view from the top patio is phenomenal and the beach is great for a dip after you eat. The price was closer to what we were expecting compared to many of the other places we ate at that were surprisingly expensive.
