The Southern Out Islands Restaurants

Out Island restaurants are often family-run and focus on home-style dishes. You'll probably eat most of your meals at your hotel, since there aren't many other places. If you want to dine at a restaurant or another inn, it's crucial to call ahead. Dinner choices largely depend on what the fishermen and mail boats bring in; be prepared for few choices. If you are renting, make sure to bring lots of food and snacks. Here, they are double or triple the costs from home and the variety is limited. Use dry ice and coolers.

Although served at a couple of places, don't expect fine dining or gourmet food but instead anticipate tasty Bahamian fresh fish, lobster, conch, fresh-baked bread, and coconut tarts—along with a smattering of American and international dishes. Fish, lobster, and conch—which is served stewed, as a salad, or cracked (battered and deep fried)—is served at almost every restaurant for lunch and dinner. Chicken served many ways is a Bahamian staple and the skills of Bahamian cooks to prepare tasty chicken are legendary. These islands have breezy roadside conch stands—typically near a settlement or a beach or with sea views—that deserve a special trip from your hotel. On Friday and Saturday nights many restaurants and bars crank up the music and visitors and locals will drink and dance 'til late.
