No frills but great food. Fried amberjack and chips plus coleslaw plus a Banks beer What's not to like? Casual as you like. Great VFM compared to some of the very over priced establishments in the area. Go there you won't be disappointed.

Ok so purists would argue the big 5, Cliff, CinCin, etc do a better job but if you really want brilliantly prepared and fairly priced LOCAL fish in walking distance of Holetown you absolutely must visit SeaCat. BTW it’s an octopus. The staff are brilliant...More
