“Love the Pig!”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Went to the Sunday afternoon pig buffet ($24 for adults, $12 for kids). BBQ or non-sauce pig, mac & cheese, rice & peas, rum cake...all great. Lots of people but we found a place to sit inside.

“Iconic beach bar and restaurant”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Nippers is located right on the beach in Guana Cay. There is a reef you can snorkel on and is nice if you get away from the beach. You can just walk back up to the bar in your bathing suit after swimming. There is a pool, and a gift shop. Food is typical bar food in the Bahamas. Service is usually slow, especially on they're at all busy. Sunday is a pig roast with pork, mac & cheese, peas and rice etc. It becomes a party zoo on Sundays. If you're looking for a beach party, go to Nippers on Sundays, but expect the crowd to be a drinking crowd.

“Great location, marginal restaurant”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

We stayed 6 nights in one of the cabins next to Nippers (can be noisy at night with Nipper's music).....some time at Nippers just relaxing, between boating, snorkeling, fishing, etc.
The staff at Nipper's couldn't care less if you are there...... apathetic would be the word - probably folks just working to try to stay on the island....not professional. Food is acceptable, beer is good.
Location is wonderful.....and that's what you're there for. The pig roast is overrated. However, not trying to be negative. It's worth being there for the location, we met and had a great time with other visitors we met. Nipper's real value is bringing people together.....don't go for Nipper's - go for everything else......we'd definitely go again, probably stay elsewhere on the island.

“Meat place but DO NOT BUY THE Counterfeit Cuban cigars”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

This is a nice place overlooking a beautiful beach. They have a nice pool, bar restaurant, and small gift shop. In the gift shop they sell counterfeit Cuban cigars. They don't tell you that they are counterfeit. They advertise that they sell Cuban cigars. But they aren't real. They aren't even good fakes. The Cohiba I purchased wasn't even a rolled leaf cigar. It was just shredded filler tobacco with a fancy label. The label was very close to the real thing. The cigar was not. I'm giving them a terrible rating because of their dishonesty. If you just go to enjoy the bar and restaurant, it's probably okay, but I wouldn't trust you are getting the real liqueur or fish you order either.

“Pace yourself”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

What a fun place to spend an afternoon!! Good food, great drinks, live music and a swimming pool, all sitting up on a bluff overlooking a beautiful beach. Does it get any better than that?
