Fresh fish, shrimp and conch prepared caribbean style. I love so many things on the menu it's hard to choose. The BBQ shrimp are incredible, the grilled conch, and the ginger dressing on the salad tastes great with everything.

What a great choice for authentic Caribbean cuisine! The fish was amazing--fresh and delicious.The jerk fish is very spicy--so take note of that! There were many different options for sides which were also excellent. The service was wonderful and the atmosphere was cool. Stopping at Calypso was a trip highlight during our visit to Pompano Beach!

Love this place. The food is great and it's five minutes from our house.I always order the steamers and I have never been disappointed. Always see someone I know there to talk to. It's off the beaten trail, so you can be seated right away and the service is great!

From the personal service to the spot on tastes of seafood. Definitely come to this perfect clean strip mall restaurant. Don't let the location or look fool you. This place is worth the stop.

Maybe the best shrimp bisque I've had. (and I love bisque) then had 4 grilled shrimp in a Jamacan sauce. If there hadn't been so many other diners, I would have licked the plate clean. I care about well prepared, unique and outstanding flavor. Also, very well priced. This place delivers in spades.

Located poorly and with an average decor, this restaurant serves amazing food from the sea with a Caribean taste. They have a wide selection of fresh fishs including some I have never heard of. They also serve fresh oysters. I will recommand this place.

Was just there this evening. Dinner for 3 tonight. Great energy as soon as you walk through the door. Greeted by friendly owner Chuck at the door. All fresh fish cooked to perfection. Any style you like. A real down home place that's been there for 26 years. Closed weekends so be aware of that. A keeper.

Stopped by here for a quick lunch on 1st day in town. Lots of fresh seafood selections, all listed On the chalkboard and prepared to your liking. We had sandwiches and entrees and all were great! Service was a tad slow and cold, but they were busy.

This is a small restaurant but the food was exceptional. The entree prices were $20-30 but were well proportioned. They are NOT open on Saturdays or Sundays and closed the month of September. Highly recommend and looking forward to a return visit.
