The Southern Out Islands Restaurant Reviews
Out Island restaurants are often family-run and focus on home-style dishes. You'll probably eat most of your meals at your hotel since there aren't many other places. If you want to dine at a restaurant or another inn, it's crucial to call ahead. Dinner choices largely depend on what the fishermen and mail boats bring in; be prepared for few choices.
Don't expect gourmet food, but do anticipate fresh fish, lobster, conch, fresh-baked bread, and coconut tarts. Cat Island is known for its spicy coarse yellow grits cooked with crab, and grits and peas with onions and tomatoes. (Call chef Sherman Russell at the Bridge Inn in New Bight and he will make some for you.) Don't miss "flour cakes," another Cat Island specialty, which taste similar to large vanilla wafers. A good bet for Friday or Saturday nights is an outdoor Fish Fry at a colorful beach shack, such as Regatta Beach on Cat Island or Kiwanis Park on Inagua.
