The food, the music and the energy...not to be missed...This is the way life should be enjoyed. If you don't have a good time here, you probably won't have a good time anywhere.

We stayed at Tailwinds and on our last day Rich took all of his guests there to celebrate the Rake'n'Scrape. Julien is great!!! We had a really good time a great dinner and great drinks. Everybody enjoyed the night and we would definitely come back.

Great time dancing to Rake and Scrape and learning to play the saw! Food was delicious and atmosphere festive. A must do on Cat!

A great and colorful little place with wonderful music and atmosphere. Food is the best Bahamian food I've ever had! Ribs were amazing, cracked conch with dipping sauce...awesome--and I don't even like conch! The rum punch was out of this world. Friendly people, too!

Renee is a GREAT cook and Julian an energetic host. The place is clean and charming. After dinner the rake n' scrape musicians take over the porch and everyone gets included in the act. The beachfront is a beautiful spot to watch the sunset. You must have reservations for dinner, but you can always stop in for the music and... More

Went to the Smoke Pot on the last night of our stay on Cat Island. Julian and Renee have themselves quite a little priceless setup there. Call in your order early, and be prepared for a great time once you arrive. The ribs and the cracked conch are must-haves, and always have a Bahama Mama or a Kalik to wash... More

This is definitely the place to go on the island. Make sure you call by 2pm to put in your order and approximate time, they have to go catch... More

We were excited to get back to Da Smoke Pot and to the quintessential host and gentleman, Julian; his wonderful wife Renee’s cooking; and of course, the great guys of the Rake and Scrape band. We first experienced this local institution last year with a group from where we were staying, and it was just as fun, if not more... More
