Tippy's Restaurant

Eleuthera | (242) 332-3331

Tippy's Restaurant, which is part of Pineapple Fields Hotel Condo, is a logical choice for travelers who are going to be spending time seeing this side of the island; it is 2.2 miles to the east of Governors Harbour. Fresh catches from and Caribbean food go well together at this colorful eatery.

In order to provide guests with the freshest ingredients possible, the menu at Tippy's changes daily. Check the chalkboard for the day's menu.

Billy Joe's

William's Town Beach | (305) 735-8267

Located in William's Town Beach, southeast of downtown Freeport, Billy Joe's is a good choice for vacationers who are going to check out this neighborhood or the surrounding area. Pleasantly surprising, this dining destination is not just Caribbean creations and one favorite, hamburgers, but here they're also known for putting out great seafood.

This is the most laid back of the laid back beach bars in the Bahamas. Set right in the sand, it is easy to spot thanks to its yellow and green paint job, and the customers hanging out under the sun.

Chat 'N' Chill®

Stocking Island | (242) 336-2700

Chat 'N' Chill® is a viable choice for people who are going to spend some time exploring this side of the island. George Town is a mile and a half (two and a half kilometers) to the west-southwest. It's worth noting that within the genre of Caribbean cuisine, this local spot is known for its barbecue and hamburgers.

Chat 'N' Chill® is first and foremost a barbecue joint. Everything is made custom to order on the grill, which means it could take a little bit of a wait before your food is prepared for you. Conch burgers, freshly made conch salad, their signature Stocking Island Grilled Fish, and grilled chicken are favorites, served along side garlic cabbage slaw, peas n rice, and mac and cheese. Stop by on Sunday at noon for the world famous pig roast, and ferries come direct from Georgetown just to drop guests off for this event. If you can't make it they offer KB's smoked barbecue ribs on a daily basis. Finally, the Chat 'N' Chill® Hot Sauce is a favorite on just about everything and you can purchase a bottle from the gift shop before you return home.

Graycliff

Downtown Nassau | (242) 302-9150

Graycliff, which is on the premises of Graycliff Hotel And Restaurant, can be found in downtown Nassau, toward the northern outskirts of Nassau. Seafood (of course) and Caribbean fare come together for some great dishes at this highly praised fine dining establishment.

Heavy, old school Bahamian dishes are on the menu here, with the shining star being the seafood and of course, the catch of the day. The wine cellar boasts over 200 thousand bottles of vintage wine.

Bahamian Club

Paradise Island | (242) 363-3000

Located 1.7 miles east-northeast of downtown Nassau, Bahamian Club is on the premises of Atlantis Beach Tower, and is a viable choice for people who are going to explore this side of the island. This local establishment isn't merely Caribbean creations and one favorite, seafood, but we shouldn't forget they're also fawned-over for another favorite, steak.

The decor at Bahamian Club is reminiscent of a pub, with green leather pub chairs and matching little green shaded lamps on each table, shelving displaying fine liquor, and portraits of great men. Though the dining is fine, the atmosphere is relaxed.
