De' Coal Pot

Named for the coal pot, the big pot that islanders used to cook their meals in up until as late as the 1970s, this restaurant is all about authenticity.


The menu is short, but the food is so good that a lot of options are not necessary. On a daily basis, guests can choose among roast pork, shrimp creole, whelks saute, baccala (salted fish), red snapper creole, garlic herb conch, oxtail stew, roast or stew chicken, lobster, roti, curried goat, salmon balls, and herb crusted steak.

De' Coal Pot is a bar and grill where they proudly serve their take on Caribbean cuisine. Most guests consider the level of formality and service here to be very casual. When is this restaurant option on the table? They're open during both dinner and lunch, so make time to stop by.


When you walk indoors you're greeted with a blast of air conditioning and a clean, modern bistro-style restaurant.


De' Coal Pot is situated on the northern side of East End, near Anna's Retreat; it is a mile (a kilometer and a half) to the northwest of Red Hook.
