Oh my goodness the fire oven baked pizza is amazing. As indicated before make a reservation. Drinks are pricey, but that's part of what is to be expected dining out on vacation. Staff was attentive and if you get a chance to order the crab cakes (do it), we ended up eating two orders as they were amazing

Excellent pizza. The place was PACKED! 8 o'clock the live music started. Great musicians and a number of people dancing. Great warm homey vibe with a number of locals and Eleuthera regulars returning to big hugs and warm greetings!! We loved it here. Make a reservation for Monday night.

This was our third trip to the Island and second stay at Rainbow Inn Seafood &Steak House. We stayed four nights at the inn and ate three nights in the restaurant. The food is the best on the Island, with fresh fish, a warm welcome and friendly staff. We have travelled many places and this is one of our favorite... More

I came here for Monday night pizza night and the pizza was great. All I can say is make a reservation. I was lucky to get in last minute. The staff was mostly friendly, could've been better. The prices weren't great, and although I know most things aren't cheap on the island, you'd expect there to be warm water to... More

We think the Rainbow Inn is the best restaurant in central Eleuthera, not because it has the flashiest menu (that's Tippy's) but because everything we ate there over several visits was consistently good -- from the grouper to the lobster to the pizza. The pizza is up to Italy quality -- and be sure to reserve a table for Monday... More

My husband and I got there as soon as they opened for lunch. We ordered the days special it was coconut curry grouper with grilled vegetables and Coconut rice. We ordered the meal because of the coconut rice. About 20 mins after we ordered we were informed they were out of rice. We asked if we could change our order... More

Been here many times for lunch and dinner. Every time has been great. The food, the service, the drinks, the attitude, and the view all make this a hot spot. On Mondays it is pizza night, where they will fire up the brick oven and make some of the best pizza you've ever eaten. Be patient though, pizza's cook one... More

We recently stayed at the Rainbow Inn as our daughter was married on the island. We hadn't been to the Bahamas for 15 years, but immediately felt welcome upon our arrival. Our stay was comfortable and affordable, centrally located to the many activities on Eleuthera. One of our friends staying with my husband and I is a fishing enthusiast and... More

We have been to the Rainbow Inn twice, and expect to go several more times in our three week Bahamas vacation. The rooms are pretty in the Caribbean style, and the service is attentive but not obtrusive. Even on the bsy Monday pizza night, we got our food in reasonable time, and our server was polite and attentive. Our special... More

We stopped at The Rainbow for their Monday pizza special and had an excellent meal. Their wood fired pizza menu has both standard and unique options. Service was great even though the place was very busy. Live music was a nice plus.
