I had the blackened dolphin and black beans. Totally awesome! Black beans were GREAT! The waitresses are super personable and prompt. Definitely will come back! Thanks to TripAdvisor!

As tourists, we only have 1 chance, and there are so many delicious sounding things on the regular menu, let alone fresh seafood and other specials. It was lunch, and we didn't want to eat too much, so we tried the traditional Stamp & Go lunch special, and the shrimp and dolphins combo curry. We both loved the Stamp &... More

OK, A tip off that this is a good place to eat is simply looking at the hours. NOT OPEN ON SATURDAYS!! Huh? Well, Chuck (the owner) explained to me when we ate there the first time that he has been in the restaurant business for years and NEVER had a weekend off. Now that he is the owner ..... More

I was recommended to go to this restaurant on the end of a dingy strip mall and wow was I surprised! I had a Flank Steak Lunch Special that was freaking AMAZING! The meat was jerk seasoned and marinated, had a grapefruit soda from the caribbean and was CHILLIN! Definitely a worth while trip and the value is awesome. Also... More

Had a great experience here. The food was great, a lot of selection. Portion size was good for the price, and the service was excellent. I will certainly eat here again!!

This place always surprises me because they add unique flavorful entrees that are outstanding. Imported beers and wines. Seafood, shellfish, chicken, lamb, beef, soups, salads and much more. This is a one of a kind restaurant. There are entrees found here that you find in no other restaurant. My wife and I have been eating at the Calypso for well... More

I couldn't wait to get there based on ten reviews. Was totally disappointed with the food. Certainly not Caribbean food.

We have been to Calypso before. We used to go with our children often, before their kids came along. But this time it was just us and the middle grandboy, Jack, 9, who shyly asked me, "Can I have the crab?" This was one of the highlights of the meal, watching him devour the whole delicious crab, and our very... More
