Sometimes local food is the best way to go and Da Smoke Pot does not disappoint! My lobster meal was plentiful and that lobster tail was bigger than my hand.

Da Smoke Pot food was very good...however the no see ums ( biting flies) were pretty bad that night. We would recommend you call first as they may or not not be open.

Great food - fish, conch, ribs, potato salad, rice and peas - and rake & scrape! I was there with the crowd from Shanna's Cove, but others joined in. We ate, we danced - great evening.
