Terrific

Well worth the $30 fee. You are in a private lounge with all the food and snacks you can eat. Drinks, comfortable and clean atmosphere. Definitely worth it and I am very leary of most of these add on items.

Food was fantastic, but menu was very limited. Had cow hoof (sounds gross, tastes amazing - phenomenal texture) and Jamaican fried chicken (equally delicious). Prices were fair and red stripe was cold.

Montego Bay was a great place to visit I felt like I was at home for a moment however seeing people drive on the right side of the road was pretty scared and some gettin use too! They have so much there and is so very popular for shopping and eating.

I liked everything and everybody. Made lots of new friends that I am still in touch with - not only locals, but tourists from all over the world

Just a few minutes from the town center this one sits right next to the main road at the beginning of the Hip Strip. Popular spot for locals and serves mainly local dishes. Regularly host Karaoke so you can eat and be entertained. Mainly open Air and relatively small space. Will not be able to cater to large groups

We wanted a place to play pool and have some beers. We ended up ordering the entire food menu...the fish was the best in my opinion. Great spot to people watch and close to shopping too.

MoBay proper is a good place to stop to have light fare, beverages and engage in a challenge of the real national sport with the locals. Sets of domino's are as evident as overproof rum in this popular night spot. Worth a stop to watch, mind wandering aimlessly in view of the bay, the beach and the constant flow of... More

If you just want to hang with the locals, have a Red Stripe or a shot of JB Rum sit outside and watch the town of Montego Bay go by this is the place. Or you can join a game of pool just inside the door. Always great music a playen.

This hidden gem is difficult to notice from the Hip Strip, the main entrance being on Fort St which runs parallel to the Hip Strip (Gloucester Avenue). However, you can access the bar from the Hip Strip via a short flight of steps. Whenever I visit Jamaica I'm always certain to spend quite a lot of time here chillin'.The girls... More
