Great food, nice owner

We have eaten here a couple of times and havent and haven't been disappointed. Try the jerk chicken it's the best. Our companions had the fish and pork... We were all delighted, and yes it's very cheap.

We arrived in P.G. (Punta Gorda) by boat. This was the 1st restaurant next to the dock. Our Hosts at Sabal Beach recommended eating there and then our boat driver! We are glad we took their advice! The interior is clean & quaint. The menu is simple and Joycelyn knows how too cook. I had the fried fish (snapper) .... More

My first time eating stew chicken with rice and beans was here, sitting on the back deck overlooking the Caribbean Sea with a gorgeous breeze. Highly recommended!

A group of students from the U.S. visited Jocelynand her crew one night while touring through PG. So glad that we stopped! Not only was the food out of this world, but the service was fast, friendly, and fabulous!! Hoping we can make one more trip to visit her before we leave!!

Don't let the rustic little shack turn you off. Joyclyn is putting out some excellent food. The location right on the waterfront is very relaxing if you ignore all the garbage washed up on shore. The day we went for lunch, Joyclyn was working by herself, so things were a little slow, but worth waiting for. One of her local... More

Joycln has great local food at great prices. Had the lobster curry and loved it. And of course the view is one of the best in Punta Gorda!

Not only is the view beautiful and the owner a wonderful friend, the food is out of this world. If you are looking for authentic Jamaican Jerk chicken, you've found the place to visit. Our group of 19 visited twice during our stay in PG. The second time we ate there, Joycln searched high and low for fresh lobster for... More

Joycln can cook. See really took care of our team when we visited PG. She cooked it all, boxed it all up, and delivered to the arena for us(we had a long, overtime game). We had jerk chicken and BBQ chicken, and both were great. We'll definitely be calling her again.

This small restaurant with a new back porch on the water at Punta Gorda has great food. The jerk chicken was prepared just for us by Joclyn when we missed it the first day. She really knows how to grill snapper as well. We had really great meals here three times and loved every bite. Nice place to meet fellow... More
