Three of us visited Cheaters for very good meals. I had the "blackened shrimp" very spicy, I would try the garlic shrimp next time. My wife and a friend had the chicken which they said was very good. Vegetables and rice were cooked perfectly. The owner appeared was very flexible, I believe he would accommodate any request.

The food was good, very down to earth but nothing fancy. Our kids loved the cracked chicken. The lobster we skipped because we didn't want to spend $40 per dish Ina basic place like this. We had conch fritters as a starter, they were good although on the greasy side. The location felt a little sad and lost -located directly... More

We had been recommended Cheater's by several people who often visit Great Exuma. As the weather wasn't great we were happy to go to a roadside restaurant. Arrived with nobody else around other than one lone couple eating. Eventually we found the owner who was welcoming and friendly. It's very basic inside though music was switched on creating a bit...

I have been traveling the world as a Pilot and this is by far the best cracked conch that I ever had.

The food is good, but expensive, for what it is. No prices on the menu, so make sure you ask before you get surprised by $40 for some fried lobster! The restaurant is bizarrely plain when it comes to decor as well. A bit like eating in a canteen. Seemingly clueless when it came to cocktails as well, so the... More

Every time I visit Cheater's they have a great local special. I love the fresh fish made with local spices.

Great food, excellent catering and the best "Stew Fish" on the island (that's a Sunday morning secret ritual...call to book ahead for your family or group:-)! Love and can't wait to have the spicy ribs again + his lobster pasta!

Cheater's is the best catering service on the island. Everything he cooks is consistently amazing...and he can always whip up some sides to accompany whatever fish or lobster you manage to catch that day! Makes a great rum cake too.
