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!!

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

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 :)
