This is the real deal: local cooks and local musicians. We were in a party; everyone thought their dinner was great. Music on the porch was an added benefit.

Julian served us a wonderful meal of Lobster, peas'n rice, fried plantain and fresh salad. Pre-dinner entertainment was rake and scrape with ice cold Kaliks at this fabulous waterfront restaurant. As always a great place to have dinner on Cat Island.

Sometimes local food is the best way to go and Da Smoke Pot does not disappoint! My lobster meal was plentiful and that lobster tail was bigger than my hand.
