We stopped here for lunch, and Mary said if we wanted something other than stuffed crab, we would have to wait an hour as everything is prepared to order. We were fine with trying the stuffed crab and washing it down with Kaliks. Since it...was Easter Week, Mary was not going to be open after that. We would have gone back if we could. Stuffed crab was tasty and spicy. I would have liked a bit more crab, but it was good!More

We spent 6 nights in The Bahamas. On the last night, we wanted to eat crab and read about this place. We ordered some crab rice and some chicken and French fry and went to Hawk's nest to see the sharks and came back to...pick up the food. All the food was very very tasty. And the prices were very reasonable. Would definitely go back there.More

You have to stop by Mary's crab shack, the stuffed crab was yummy and a wee bit spicy, its on the road to Port Howe, a green shack on side of road, well worth a visit.

Everyone said it was good so we proved it. A spicy local Bahamian dish. We sat outside but you could do it as takeout. She’s right by the road. Look for a bright little outdoor kitchen with a picnic table in Bain town. She has...a generous spirit!More

If you love baked/stuffed crabs your trip will not be complete without a visit to Mary's Crab Shack. It is definitely worth the drive.

Having read about Mary's crab shack on TA, and it was on our way to our rental in Port Howe, we stopped one night to bring home dinner. Shellfish allergies prevented us from most of the menu but we opted for fish fingers and fries....Preparations took about 45 minutes during which time most of the family came out to chat with us or just say hello. Took the dinner back to our rental and was amazed at how good the fish was and the amount of fish a dinner had for the crazy low price of $12. Would recommend to stop if the doors are open and you are passing by.More

Pat and Mary have by far the best "Take Away " food on Cat. We visit this island quite often as our home base while we Island hope. Call ahead to place your order Or just stop in and hear a bit of local facts...about the island. Pat also has an Eco tour she provides for a modest cost. Cat Island is truly the "Real Bahamas" and the folks living there are the most friendly I have ever seen. 5 Stars to Pat and Mary Crab ShackMore

We stopped here for lunch for a Bahamian meal and it was quite good! We ate it there which we wouldn't do next time. There is a very aggressive cat that meowed nonstop for bits of food - take it to go and eat it...at the deveraux mansion beach. We had split conch, conch fritters and fried fish. The fries were undercooked and the salad was plain - I'd ask for just the main next time. The split conch wasn't great, it was very chewy. The conch fritters and fried fish were absolutely excellent and I would recommend both of these.More

Not in walking distance. You would need a car. Maybe a 15 minute car ride. You can call her in the morning and she will have dinner ready for you. It's a beautiful island and I think Rollezz is on a fantastic beach!
