Just stop by while driving around the island, put in your order, stop back back and the desired time, and FRESH from the waters, CONCH fritters that a a delight. Other items are also here but can't give up the conch!

Rake 'n' Scrape... Julian is da man, mon! Great food, served hot and large portions. Call or stop by earlier to put in your meal request for fast fast service. Special drinks are plentiful with excellent pours. We had a 14 month old with us and we were made to feel like family, even on the dance floor! :) Two... More

Interesting experience! Nice local bar. Food was OK (also very local) and the music afterwards was fun.

Renee and Julian serve up the best cracked conch you will ever have. The lobster is out of this World also. Ask Renee for some ghost peppers if you like it extra spicy. Julian will tear it up with his Rake & Scrape Band out front, and give you a chance at playing the saw. Don't miss Da Smoke Pot!

Great food and great company - this husband and wife operated restaurant is a must-visit. They bring the out-islands to life while performing traditional rake n' scrape music. ENJOY!

The food was amazing. Seriously. We got a table out on the front porch, and eating delirious grub and watching the sunset over the water was great. The food is what I would call "Island Soul Food" I think we had beans, macaroni, and ribs. The music was good at first, but in order to make sure that everyone got... More

If you are reading this you are likely to stand out from the crowd as Cat island is one of very places left where the words 'unspoilt' beaches' mean just that. You are likely to be adventurous so forget the table cloths and expensive restaurants you will be travelling back in time with few cars hotels or restaurants although you... More

Had a awesome dinner at Da Smoke Pot. We visited during the off season so we had to order our food in advance, My plate of Lobster Tail, Peas n rice, Potato Salad and Cole Slaw was amazing!!! Mrs. Russell and her husband was very hospitable and friendly. They also had a small Raken Scape band play music.

The food was good. It was not fancy, just tasty. We had one course with options like ribs, fish, and conch. Each dish came with brown rice and potato salad. It was a simple meal, with large portions. We enjoyed it. It was open to the porch outside, so if you mind moths flying into your restaurant this isn't the... More

And it has a great view of the Caribbean. Great Rake 'N' Scrape music and dancing by repute, although we were there in the off season when some of the band was away.
