On Grand Bahama Island, fine dining restaurants offer it up in grand style. Everything is accessible from the exotic to the commonplace, so grab a cocktail and a companion and let your culinary journey begin. Casual-dining restaurants serve up the best in Bahamian breakfast cuisine: scrumptious grits, stewed fish and johnnycake are popular choices. Residents of Smith’s Point lay claim to staging the first Fish Fry. Now, this unique dining and social spot is an excellent opportunity to get better acquainted with both the native fish and our residents. Annual festivals in the east showcase two important staples: the Pelican Bay Coconut Festival in April and the McLean’s Town Conch Cracking Festival in October.
