Bahamian food in a friendly fun pub

The food was tasty, the music presentation was lively and engaged the audience,and the hosts were friendly people. It was a lively night out on an otherwise quiet island.

We ate here twice during our week on the island. Julian and Renee really make this a memorable experience in so many ways. We loved just sitting at the bar and chatting with Julian and enjoyed being treated to an evening of "rake and scrape" music on the front porch. The restaurant (if you can call it that) is very...

When you go to Cat Island, you MUST go to Da Smoke Pot! Good food, kind people and the best place on the island to chill out and soak in the atmosphere of Cat Island. Call ahead if you have a group :)

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

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!
