Nice little restaurant for lunch. My fiance and I enjoyed the curry shrimp. The service was great, and the meal and rum drinks allowed us to enjoy an afternoon after shopping. The restrooms are clean and th restaurant offers free wifi.

I hired a tour guide for the day who brought us to Trenchtown Rock for lunch. It was highly recommended and I could see why. The staff were very friendly and the food/drinks were delicious! I had the jerk chicken with rice/beans, potato stuffing, and salad. The fruit punch was AMAZING! The only problem was that service was quite slow.... More

Our tour director recommended this restaurant as part of our tour. His recommendation was right on the money! The good was really good and reasonably priced. I had the jerk chicken with spicy sweet potatoes and coleslaw, all of which were very good. The passion fruit juice was delicious too! The staff was nice and helpful and the restaurant had... More

We were beginning to be a little disappointed in the authentic Caribbean cuisine choices in St. Thomas until we sat down in Trenchtown. Our first visit Isis was our server, she is absolutely WONDERFUL!! Superior customer service and the food was delicious! Second time around, Lynette was our waitress, she was so sweet and awesome. They make the atmosphere comfortable,... More

This restaurant was "putting out the best plate on the island." That's what we were told two days before we eat there. We were not disappointed. The food was amazing! They need more staff but they made up for it with service and friendly atmosphere. Would highly recommend that you visit this place and have the rum punch and ox... More

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 completely fine with waiting. The music... 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.
