Fun place

We stopped in for the jerk chicken and spicy peanut chicken skeweres, both were very good. Seasoned well and grilled perfectly. We also ordred the fried plantains, they were greasy. The server was friendly and efficient.

We visited the bar while exploring the island. We tried the mojitos and piña coladas and I have to say they are the best on the island. El Patio is the sister restaurant but I like the drinks better at The Joint.

No polite people here. The owner was unfriendly and the drinks were not that good. The atmosphere is aesthetically pleasing but it is all taken away by the rudeness of the staff.

Great place to impulsively stop and have a mojito and guac. Is casual with a hippy vibe. Have been many times. Most recently, this includes a daily walk down for a mango mojito to go - which I plan to take full advantage of on my next visit. Manchas, the old lady cat on the property, is always great to...

I'll preface this by saying the only downfall to The Joint is the location, as it is tucked away in the woods a bit, no ocean breeze and in May it was HOT HOT HOT. Everything else was fantastic. We had frozen mojitos which were so refreshing!! What a great idea. They're like blended margaritas only mojito. We also had... More

A little Rasta bar, Great place for a fresh mojito, guacamole and fish tacos. My husband really loved the fish tacos which had big pieces or fillets of local well seasoned fish. I thought the guac was excellent. I just wish the owner would clean and update the grounds a little more but there was a guy working hard on... More

We stopped in for a drink and lunch, and couldn't get service to save our souls. Apparently they are understaffed, but we won't give it another try.

The Joint is a nice place with great music, food and drinks. My favorite ate the nachos. The Joint is very laid back and a relaxing place.
