Travel to Jamaica for lunch time!!!! You Better like it hot...

Incredible Family Jamaican restaurant. All the dishes are delicious! The Meyer Global Group enjoys having a team lunch brainstorm session at Rocksteady about our next listing marketing. Really a great place to stop by, lunch is a gift at less than $10 with reggae music... Try it and keep us posted.

The food was excellent, however, it took 3 tries to get my order done correctly. First time, they gave me regular pasta, instead of gluten-free, as requested (took 20 minutes to cook correct pasta). Next, I was given the wrong sauce, and on the 3rd try, my meal was finally delish. Unfortunately, I had to eat alone, as my friends... More

Excellent Jamaican restaurant. Vegan burger is so good witht jerk sauce. Great jerk chicken & oxtail served with peas & rice. Ask for the raspberry sauce too. A little sweet with the hot. Super nice owners who also cook.

Came in for lunch, my sisters were in town. Have you ever had a waitress ask you what you would like while on the phone? They were out of plates on their short lunch menu The Jerk Burger, Crab cakes, and Fish of the day So instead the 3 of us ordered two plates of veggie burgers with fries and... More

This place has so much potential but was a big disappointment. The worst part was the awful service. Salads were tired and plain served with a cheap plastic cups of dressing on the side. The main course was dumped on the table before we were half-way through our appetizers. Curried goat was forgettable and lukewarm. Apparently the microwave wasn't working... More

I recently took a Group of Five to this Restaurant--with Great Results!! We decided to share the Akee Sampler to begin---(Akee sauteed with Onions and Red Peppers over Green Plantains) which exploded with natural flavor. I then tried the Steamed Yellow Tail Snapper with Scotch Bonnet and Thyme which was very well seasoned, and fresh. Others at the Table raved... More

I enjoy coming here for lunch to grab some jerk chicken with rice and beans and plantains. The chicken is tasty and it makes for a home-style meal on the go.

Heading to two restaurants in boca last night to find then both closed down. We stumbled upon this place in a busy plaza. All the tables were occupied. Good sign. Acker sampler was ok. Bit dull. The crab cakes were better. Good atmosphere but with no coffee or tea. Something to do with a bad coffee harvest or maybe they... More

This small restaurant is large on flavor and atmosphere. We had the Rocksteady Sampler to start. It's a sampling of jerk chicken, curry Chicken, brown stew chicken, oxtail and curry goat. Ohmigosh! This appetizer with a side of yucca fries would be an excellent lunch. I had the gourmet shrimp rundown (fabulous... The medium heat was just enough to make... More
