A beach bar with Great BBQ! A fun atmosphere with picnic tables and volley ball. BBQ ribs were great as were BBQ fish. They take plastic - be sure to check at other restaurants

We ate at the Chat n'Chill today, had their barbecue. The service was very slow but you must realize you are in the Bahamas so just chill and enjoy. The drinks are always cold and the food worth the wait! This is the place to be while in Georgetown as it is close to the anchorage and there is always... More

Very friendly staff, food takes a while(an hour) so don't be in a hurry. There is no reason to be in a hurry as it is beautiful. Feed the stingrays, take a swim, have a drink and just chill

Took water taxis out to island , had couple rum drinks. Sat on beach table and watched people enjoying beautiful clean Sandy beach. When down to water's edge and petted the sting rays. It was time for pork roast. Had pork Mac and cheese, Cole slaw, rice and peas. All was very good.

The setting is gorgeous and a wonderful place to spend a day. Feeding the stingrays was a highlight. As the sign says, the chat is free but you pay for the chill (food). We would gladly have paid for chill if anyone there actually wanted to serve customers. Instead they seem to revel in island time excuses, telling us we... More

After a disastrous hike (our water taxi dropped us off and said we could walk to the Chat n' Chill from the other end of the island (you can, but get good directions!) we finally ended up there. Drinks took a long time, conch salad took over 30 minutes and we missed our water taxi. Stingrays are interesting, but I... More

The restaurant sadly opens first at 12-12:30, and the service in the pub+restaurant is oddly poor for such a popular place. Luckily the bbq chef is very friendly and the meat tasty.

We try not to be picky, but when you have three starving kids and you have to wait in line for a half hour just to order, and then wait for three more hours to get your food, it doesn't really matter how good it is. Standard barbecue, nothing special if you live in a place that has a good... More

Decided to spend the afternoon on Stocking Island so we took the water taxi over around 11am. Really the Chat n Chill is the only place to eat on the beach, so it's a really good thing that it's a great place! We decided to go for the fish lunch, which includes two sides. I had the grouper with rice... More

The rib plate is plenty for two and very tasty! The wait time was a little long, but a fresh conch salad was the perfect appetizer. Seeing the sting rays and the overall atmosphere of the place are bonuses.
