There’s a lot more to do on your Bahamas vacation than just getting your gears on to bask in the sun, sand, and sea. As any seasoned traveler to Bimini Bahamas would advise, traveling to another place is also a ticket to experience the local vibe, to do what the locals do, and best of all, to taste what the locals eat. And this could not be any truer than in Bimini Bahamas, where laid-back island living melds beautifully with the island’s upbeat dining experience.
Bimini Bahamas may not be as diverse in its restaurant choices as the bigger islands in the Bahamas, but you will not be disappointed by what it has to offer. So appraise the menu, feel the vibe of the island, and be prepared to satiate your discerning palate.
Top 4 Restaurants on Bimini Bahamas:
• Sherri’s Beach Bar
For a true island dining experience, Sherri’s Beach Bar is the place to be. It is located right off a beach and offers sumptuous dishes cooked fresh from the island’s catch. Sherri’s Beach Bar is one of few Bahamas restaurants that will satiate your taste buds while giving you a spectacular view of the Caribbean sunset and a little dose of stargazing.
Restaurant owners Sherri and Eric also have quite a reputation for being the most hospitable hosts in the area, which makes a trip to Sherri’s quite the Bahamian vacation every traveler deserves. So nurse your hungry tummy by heading to Sherri’s Beach Bar.
Guests who have gone to Sherri’s often rave about the restaurant’s specialty conch and lobster salad, special fried chicken, and favorite Bahamian drink Goombay Smash. Sherri’s Beach Bar makes smashing rum punch which is perfect for lazing around by the beach.
• Big Game Club Bar and Grill
If you have a few bucks more to spend than your usual meal and prefer to visit a restaurant in Alice Town (the center of Bimini Bahamas) that offers a relaxed ambiance and a versatile menu that can squarely rival any of the best Bahamas restaurants, then Big Game Club Bar and Grill, inside one of Bimini’s resorts, is the place for you.
Nicknamed BGBG by the locals, the restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It has quite a good selection of dishes to choose from – fish, steaks, pasta, salads, and sandwiches. The BGBG Fish Sandwich and the Big Game Burger are among its house specialties. It would not hurt to try any of these when you find it difficult to pick from among the many food choices available.
Nestled in a spot overlooking the Bimini harbor, Big Game offers casual riverside dining. Guests can choose to dine outdoors at the restaurant’s patio or inside by the restaurant’s smashing themed bar. Whichever way your heart desires, dining at Big Game is an experience not to be missed when you are on your Bahamas vacation.
