“Don't let the dump like appearance scare you”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

It is a beach shack. Good lobsters. Drinks come out right away. Food was good, place a bit dirty looking. Good for a local feel.

“Great food”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Had great food in an on the beach setting. Nothing special about the decor, but beach is a big plus. Food was outstanding. Ribs and jerk pork were especially tasty and the complement of salad, vegetables and rice filled the plate. Also a great value.

“Not Worth The Walk!”
Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

Very puzzled by some of the positive reviews. Although we expected the lackadaisical service we did not expect the poor food and stingy portions. For example, the ribs come as three tiny babyback portions which most would consider an appetizer. The space on the plate is filled with a boring iceberg lettuce salad and tasteless rice. Either reviewers on this site have low standards or I am missing something.

“Hidden in the glare of shiggiity shack”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

We intended on going to shiggity shack which was packed and quite frankly looked like a tourist trap. We kept walking down the beach and found Cathy's, excellent value, great food, try the BBQ chicken or lobster. Service can be slow but its island time and when the food gets there its worth the wait, have another rum punch!

“Great food!!”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

If you are in a hurry...forget about it. This is a place where you order Cathy's rum punch and a beer and relax. The ribs were very good, but the Mahi Mahi was terrific. The sauce made the difference, and the sides were all excellent. Make it a great night picking a table overlooking the ocean remembering life is short...enjoy!!
