We stopped at Yardie's on a Sunday and technically they were closed. However, they were kind enough to give us some conch salad which was extremely delicious, it had the perfect amount of heat and crunch. Highly recommend a stop at Yardie's!

We had stopped to get gas but they were out. What they did have was the most amazing conch salad that we had on our trip. It was absolutely incredible and was the perfect lunch with a couple of cold beers. Really a great spot - do not just drive by here, make sure to stop in!

Yardies is the Cheers equivalent of Cat Island Bahamas. Someone to talk to, a place to meet new people all with stories of sites visited on the island. Odette alias Yardies shares her claim to fame with her husband. They cater to your needs at their conch salade stand, the airport or the Sunday Beach party at Bennets Harbour. Go... More

As always Yardies' fabulous jerk chicken and BBQ ribs were wonderful, served with peas and rice, coleslaw and mac and cheese. Generous portions, great service and you must start with conch fritters . We always have several meals here when we visit Cat Isle. Also has Wifi.

We were directed to Yardie by our Resort Host Kenny from Sammy T's just up the road. The 5 minute walk became our ritual every night while on Cat Island. Yardie welcomed us as if we were old acquaintances and fed us with wonderful home cooked food. She is a woman of many talents and can keep you supplied with... More

Yardie's jerk chicken is the bomb. We stopped by to catch lunch before heading to the Hermitage and we stopped by on our way back to pick up food for dinner. Yup, it was that good!
