We have visited many times. Today happened to be a day when there were two ships visiting the island. It was crowded however the staff managed to keep their composer and kept smiles on their faces. I was told they were short staff. The customers seemed to be impatient and not understanding. I was... read more

Trenchtown has some of the best jerk chicken I have ever eaten. Service was very good and friendly. The food got to us pretty quickly and looked fantastic. The restaurant is easy to find just remember that all the stores and restaurants are closed on Sundays.

This was BY FAR the BEST jerk I've had. Three of us went for lunch and were very pleased. We drank and ate off of every plate on the table. AWESOME food and equally at good service. This place was a gem!

My wife and I were directed here by the folks at Shaka Zulu and we're grateful that they did. The jerk pork and chicken were excellent! The menu had a slew of Jamaican dishes that we weren't able to try and wished we could have. The wait staff was excellent.

We stopped by not knowing what to expect and we were wowed. The food was outstanding. Lost the fifth star with slow service especially getting the bill and paying took way too long. Definitely worth a stop.

Most authentic food I've had since arriving in St. Thomas. Curry shrimp, macaroni pie, and.rice and peas was excellent. Be sure to ask for Richie - excellent customer service.

It's located a block off the Main shopping Street. The server was wonderful explaining exactly what each meal was and the service was great. The Jamaican food was some of the best I have had outside of Jamaica

OMG, delish!!!! Our tour guide recommended this spot to us while we were touring St. Thomas. At first glance the restaurant was not impressive by American standards, but if you are familiar with many carribean restaurants they offer a very casual layed back appearance in general. The food was AMAZING!!!! I ordered a chicken patty appetizer which was one of... More
