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.

We stopped here for drinks with Julian & friends after leaving Shannas Cove. Another fun place to hang out with the locals in Cat Island. Julian & his wife make you feel like family. We did not want to leave, but it was late & we were flying home the next day. See you next year hopefully for a longer... More

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.

Had a wonderful dinner and enjoyed Julian and his wife's hospitality!! As a mainlander, I honestly might not have gone there had it not been arranged by our innkeeper, Cathleen from Island HoppInn, for fear of not being accepted in a "local" place like Julian's. WRONG!! So wrong!!! We were welcomed with open arms and hearts!! Loved it!!! Absolutely going... More

Julian and his family are taking great care of you with fine local food such as fried conch or fresh fish. After dinner, Julian and his band are playing rake and scrape music on the porch; sometimes late into the mild night.

We stopped into the Smoke Pot on a Friday night and enjoyed the live Rake and Scrape music. The group was amazing and engaged all of us while we threw back glass after glass of rum and danced into the night. Incredible talent. We closed the place down and even enjoyed drinks with the lead musician and restaurant owner (they're... More

Great food, served by friendly folks who are happy to have you. If you can, go on a night when there is music, the "Rake and Scrape" is an interesting and entertaining art form that is sure to please. Make sure you stop in or call ahead for reservations. If you find yourself on Cat Island make the time to... More

Ironically we met Lisa in Nassau after asking our taxi pro Dale about local jewelry makers, he took us to Irene's Stand. I didn't get the "Irene"story but we explained our plans to go to Cat island in conversation and her sister turns out, is Renee! So we met Jullian and Renee through that connection. Jullian is a great entertainer/... More
