Easy going and really good ribs

A nice open air beach eatery with-in walking distance (granted over a mile) from the Marriott. Oder the ribs and enjoy! Sit on a picnic table on the beach with sand in your toes!

Amazing local food on the beach. The rum punch was also delicious here too. Lighting was dim so I probably ate more than I would have if it were light out! Hah!

Cathy is back in the kitchen waiting for your order. It takes some time because she's making it just for you. Meanwhile, as you sit at the picnic table wiggling your toes in the sand and taking in the beautiful Carribean, the aroma of smoking ribs drives you crazy in anticipation. The meal is well-worth the wait. Succulent barbecued ribs... More

Many of the locals referred us to Cathy's and they were correct. Its a nice 15 minute walk from the Marriott complex or an $8 cab ride one way. The hospitability was nice (which can be rare on St Kitts). Cathy's is located on Timothy Beach also known as the strip. On Thursday nights, there is a beach bonfire around... More

We visited Cathys at the recommendation of a local and were very pleasd with the entire experience. Located on the Caribbean side of the island, on the beach, known by the locals as "the strip", Cathys is one a 5 or 6 shacks of pure local enjoyment serving up fresh seafood, chicken and pork bbq or jerk style. Sit at... More

Very casual family style eating . Carribean lobster and barbecue were good but not worth the wait. Limited menu so we're still not sure why food takes so long. Apparently we were lucky that order to table took only 1 1/2 hours others waited longer. On a positive note, the rum punches and social atmosphere with other diners made the... More

We loved our previous meal here a few years ago. This year we came away disappointed. Service is not something St. Kitts is known for but the service here was abysmal. Despite the waiting, the meal was pretty good. The lobster dinner was marvelous. Red snapper dish was disappointing. I would not recommend their "famous" rum punch. We love eating... More

This was our first trip to St. Kitts and Cathy's was recommended several times. Went for dinner and watched the sunset over the water, which was beautiful of course. But the whole restaurant experience was disappointing. Service was horrible. We waited over an hour for our food. All three of us got BBQ. The others liked theirs but my chicken... More

My husband and I just returned from an 11 night stay in St. Kitts, and being within close distance of The Strip, we tried Cathy's twice, once for lunch and on our final night for dinner. While I do think "The Strip" in general was very highly overrated, it is not a bad place to go if you are looking... More
