Da Smoke Pot is one our favorite place on the island. Julian and his staff are fabulous, Franko and Mr. Webb the band are so fun to be around, give all lessons on the saw. The food is alway delicious and Julian always accomodating and just a happy happy person with good vibes. Ching! Ching!

Enjoyed fried conk, beers and the rake & scrap band! Watched chickens playing in the yard and great conversation with Frankie. Well worth a visit while on Cat Island.

We have been to see Julian many, many times. As soon as we get to our rental house we call him up and ask what night is rake and scrape. He knows us by name as soon as he hears our voices. I told Julian it was my husbands bday and he got the gang together for rake and scrape... More

We stayed on Cat Island for 9 days and ate at Da Smoke Pot twice - it was so good we came back and had the best dinner ever in our lives! Call ahead! If you can't call or forget - call anyway and ask nicely if it's too late to come for dinner. Don't just show up unless you... More

The food at Da Smoke Pot was very good. The highlight was Franco and the Dogs playing Rake and Scrape. You can't help but smile and tap you feet!

Da Smoke Pot is an fantastic Cat Island experience. We arrived with a group of 17 including 8 children. Food was delicious and the hospitality of Julian was remarkable. He knew all of our names by the time we left and his Rake & Scrape band was extremely entertaining. A return to Cat Island will surely include a trip to... More

The food and drink are good, but come for Julian and the music. We went one night with some other people for dinner and got to play with the band, which was great. We went back another afternoon and got to talk him and learn more about Cat Island, which was great.

Food was OK, people are great, atmosphere is very laid back; lighting is too bright though unfortunately. I've seen many restaurants go to CFL bulbs and there is no was to dim them as they shine in your eyes

We went here for dinner and they were getting a buffet ready for a group of people. We sat outside and they brought us food without giving us a menu or ordering. It was fish, Mac n cheese and rice. Food was ok but we mainly went for rake and scrape music. We had to leave around 7:30 due to... More
