Took my clients here in several occasions & i admire the choice of options they have for a jerk centre, as a jerk centre in Jamaica is know for just having jerk, where as some of our visitors are not very keen/fund of spicy food especially the kids, here you have a choice of a few other things on the...

A spot that was showcased on the Food Network, this is the best food by far, that I've ever experienced in my life. You have no lived until you've eaten here, and it is must for anyone visiting Ocho Rios. Its good enough to plan a specialty trip just to dine here. Everything is amazing and so insanely cheap with... More

Driving to the east side of Jamaica can be a bit loony at times. This incredibly beautiful, more rural, part of the island doesn't have the infrastructure of the Montego Bay area, so finding a restaurant that was open, with parking, became a laughable rubric for our family at times. We found this jerk center when we pulled into a... More

Our cruise ship stopped in Ocho Rios for the day and after spending the morning at Dunn’s River Falls we decided on having lunch at the Jerk Centre. It’s around a 10 to 15 minute walk from the Turtle Bay port, just walk up to the Taj Mahal shopping centre and then take a left on Da Costa Drive for... More

I love this jerk center, and I eat here often. They have nice outdoor seating and a variety of food choices. They also have buses that go to Kingston and Mobay, that are airconditioned, and very confortable and affordable. Make sure you stop in for some authentic jerk chicken or perhaps a fish dish.

Walked here from shopping and ate great food. Ate chicken, pork & ribs. Loud since it is right by a main road, but lots of room for people to sit and eat and some outside seating.

Our group of 4 went here for lunch... I had the ribs (delish fall off the bone goodness). Everyone else had jerk chicken which they said was great as well. Beer was cold. Service was fast. A great mix of locals and tourists. Recommended by everyone in our group.

What I liked about the Jerk Center is the all the prices are listed on a menu unlike many places in Jamaica. The food was fresh, tasty, and served in a clean, comfortable surrounding. I look forward to returning next time I am in St. Ann.

The Jerk Pork was nice, although my friend found it to be a little salty. I found that the food could have been a little more. The festivals were really delicious. My dislike was that they gave us $90 JA dollars to $1 US, instead $100
