Even sitting at the bar with not that many people in the place it was sloooow service. Had two overpriced small drinks (even by Bahama standards) and some cracked conch that was pretty good ($18). The lobster bites looked good

Watered down drinks served by disinterested bartender who smoked the entire time while making our drinks. Other than the view, the only high point was the delicious conch strips served by a delightful young woman with a beautiful smile.

One of the best beach bars I have been to... good food, nice souvenir shop, great view, lovely pool and great atmosphere. Great Guana Cay and Nippers Beach bar is a must visit if you are in Abaco area... Highly recommended.

Nippers can be great when not crowded but on Sundays it is loud, packed and the food inedible. If you like loud packed places and barely dressed people, by al means go.

If you find yourself exploring the Abacos, you have to find your way to Nipper's on Guana Cay - the place to Party on the beach! Enjoyed their Sunday Pig Roast on a beautiful, windy afternoon. $30 a plate but all you could eat, the roast pig was fantastic and everything else was delicious too. Great drinks, great view and...

We moored on the other side of the Cay, over by Grabbers. We pre-gamed at Grabbers and took the short walk over to Nippers. We were there on a Sunday during low season, but the place was hopping! The view was spectacular. White sand, turquoise water and then beyond the breaking waves, royal blue water. None of the photos that... More

We went on a Sunday afternoon, it was super windy but such an amazing day. Some of group got in the water and enjoyed the waves. The food was amazing. (Although we didn't actually have the pig roast, it was $30) It was super neat to watch the kite surfers out on the ocean.

Nice place on Great Guana Cay to eat and cool off, Nice selection on the menu. You have to dock your boat on the Bay side and walk to the other side of the Island. But its a nice walk.
