We are looking for good local Bahamian food in Nassau, especially conch and seafood. Any recommendations? I've looked at Conch Fritters, Bahamian Kitchen, Arawak Cay, Poop Deck, Crocodile something, Goldie's, etc....
We loved the food and especially the conch dishes (fritters and chowder) in Key West. Would like to find similar. Not a $$$ place with 5 forks each. Just good local food, and beverages. Atmosphere a plus, but not required..

Each of the places you mentioned will give you a good taste of bahamian cooking.
Here's a little breakdown.
Bahamian Kitchen is terrific down home cooking. They are usually quite busy, and very slow.. if you have the time.. it's a winner.
Poop Deck is a great location for good food, and a great view. This is a real sit down service. Another winner.
Arawak Cay's Fish Fry is a very casual, very down home, great cooking, but you're likely to get served on styrofoam. (not a problem for me.. but for some.. it might be a turn off.).
Conch Fritters is a very touristy, very Key West kinda feel. Almost feels like TGIF's Caribbean style. Food is good.
Crocodiles is out of the way, but still a good idea. It's a very casual setting.
Burgers/baskets and casual stuff.
For the REAL authentic deal.. I'd head to Araway Cay. You're bound to find something you like, and you'll get a feel for the people of the island.
Here's a menu for one of my favorite spots.

I ate Conch Fritters a couple months ago and enjoyed it. As it was lunch and I was by myself, I ordered fritters as an apettizer and a greek salad for the main course. I think I received 5 or 6 fritters which were good and the greek salad was definetly main course size as I couldn't finish it.
