Description: Share in a one-of-a-kind celebration of music and culture as Bob Marley: A Tribute to Freedom at Universal CityWalk takes you on a musical journey through the life of the "King of Reggae." Bob Marley’s songs of faith, hope, rebellion, and determination have brought inspiration and joy to audiences everywhere. Working closely with Rita Marley and the Bob Marley Foundation, we have created a replica of Bob's home on 56 Hope Road in Kingston, Jamaica. Inside, artifacts, photos, and video clips from his legendary career surround visitors in the open-air veranda and courtyard. The cuisine features Jamaican-influenced appetizers, entrees and desserts. Some of the most popular items are the Oxtail Stew, the Sun is Shining grilled chicken breast marinated in Jamaican curry sauce, and the Taste of Jamaica appetizer platter featuring veggie & beef patties, mango wings and yucca fries.

After seeing commercials on TV about this restaurant, my husband and I decided to give it a try. When we arrived, the hostess was very friendly and immediately sat us down. Our waiter which was also the bartender of the upstairs floor must have came and asked us if we wanted anything to drink after being seated for 10 mins.... More

My husband and I have traveled in the Carribean islands several times and we had the craving for Carribean meals. Bob Marley did not disappoint. I had the best cod with veggies dinner and One Love drink. Atmosphere was casual; we were expecting live band but we were told the live band performs on specific day of the week. They... More

The food was really great and I'm a very picky eater. The staff was really nice and the music at night was free and fun.

My daughter insisted on trying the restaurant during a recent stay in Orlando. She'd never had Jamaican food but enjoys spice so I figured she'd enjoy it. She had the jerk chicken. It was spicy and delicious - well cooked yet moist. It was served with some mushy plantains and so-so rice. Both seemed to suffer in the attempt to... More

I thought the restaurant would exemplify the real Jamaican cuisine, but only to served a watered-down version. I wasn't expecting extremely spicy flavors already known to its culture, however what I tasted was completely bland and mediocre with tiny tiny food portions and an overpriced menu! I was also disappointed in the layout of the restaurant which looked like you... More

After a long day of travel, we enjoyed a meal of jerk chicken and jerk steak. Food was pretty good, but the live music was a must-see! The live band started around 9, and played some familiar and original stuff for quite a long time. Really relaxed and attentive staff made this place a fun datenight.

I was in a group of four that chose to do the dinner and movie offer. We had four items to chose from a special menu. We did have to wait a while for the server to come to attend to us initially. We explained to our server our time crunch situation. She made suggestions on what we should order.... More

Had an excellent shrimp entree with subtle flavors. The calamari app was good although the serving size was a bit small.

Ate here and enjoyed the atmosphere immensely!! The live band was AWESOME!! Some of the foods were cooked differently then if eaten in actual Jamaica such as the oxtail, I didn't expect mega-sized oxtail. My kids did not like their fries. If your with kids their menu is limited, no chicken fingers here! Service was mediocre. The food came at... More
