Good food!

We went there early, so it wasn't crowded. The food was good, but be careful that you are aware of the conversion rate. They charged us double what they should have charged us. We paid $12 for a $6 meal.

Food and facilities were very good. Live band, clean bathrooms, locals+tourists. Line was a little long, but we were still in and out in under an hour. Reasonable prices, and the food was really good! Jerk pork and Jerk chicken combos are a good bet.

We stopped at the Jerk Center after Blue Hole. Our lunch was great and very reasonable. We fed two families (11 people total) for $55!

Been here once whilst I was on the island, nice food with a rustic setting. Would like to go again just see if it's as good as Scotchies.

Food was good. Great hot sauce. Slow service, but good chicken. Great prices. Not as good as Scotchies. Nice atmosphere, server split the check for our group (that was nice). Did not have lamb nor ribs as advertised when we went.
