Very friendly staff and fast service at the bar. We pre-ordered our meat selections via our accommodation so dinner service was swift. Lobster was sizeable but probably frozen since out of season locally-still pretty tasty. Staff of 2 men was joined but 2 others for Rake & Scrape band music after dinner on front porch. Good Fun by the beach... More

I visited Arthur's Town in March 2017. It was quite a drive up from the south end of Cat but well worth the trip. The place is was lively, had clean bath rooms, and excellent smells coming from the kitchen. I didn't order any food but the plates of fried fish and conch that I saw looked delicious. I was...

Julian was a blast! The food was great! Service was FUN!!!! You absolutely have to go here just to meet the people that hang out here. We planned to just go for dinner, but we stay for HOURS and met some great locals and travelers!

I didn't know what "rake and scrape" was until I got here. It is local music whose instruments include a wood saw. The local food is worth the visit, and the local music makes it more memorable.

We had the ribs and the deep fried conch. The ribs were the tenderest I have ever had. The conch was very good. One Bahama mama is enough. Every one was very friendly and helpful
