Great little place to relax

A little bit of Jamaica in the middle of Kansas. This is one of those out of way places, but the food is good, rum punch is excellent and the atmosphere is relaxing. They frequently have live music - acoustic guitar, not too loud while you're trying to enjoy the evening; and a nice little enclosed... read more

This hidden gem in Manhattan, Ks is a must stop if you are anywhere within a 100 mile radius. The owner, and staff, take friendly to a whole new level, the smells when you walk in the door are almost enough to make you feel full by themselves. My first trip in there was on business not to eat and... More

The owner is great. He will sometimes play music for the guests at the restaurant. It makes a great atmosphere. The rum punch is pretty good, and is their specialty. The food I could take or leave. Often food doesnt seem cooked very well, try chicken over cooked sauces. Some swear by it though. I think this is a good... More

A little bit of Jamaica in Kansas! This restaurant is a little off the beaten path, but so worth the drive. The food is delicious & the atmosphere is fun! The live music is very entertaining! I had a pulled pork sandwich with jerk sauce and it was amazing. The seafood gumbo was delicious as well.

Great music and friendly ambiance. We go regularly to meet friends, listen to favorite musicians, enjoy finger food (great chicken wings with Jamaican spices and Rasta Ranch dressing), and kick back. A great place to go after an afternoon at the lake, for special music events, or with a large group of friends. Try the desserts and always check out... More

The Little Grill is a great little place to spend an evening. The food isn't the usual fare with an island feel. Also don't come here if you are in a hurry. You are on Jamaican time here and while the service is good, you will wait longer than you would expect. So have a drink or two and relax,... More

I like this place. Food is always good. The service is also friendly. The rum punch: Watch yourself. Be prepared to to be charmed and to stay for a second drink. Great place.

My husband and I went to the Little Grill for a much needed date night. We sat on the enclosed patio which was very relaxing. There was live music playing inside which we could hear thru the speakers on the porch so that was nice. The service was excellent. Our waiter was super nice and prompt. The food was good.... More

Great quick spot to enjoy a different type of dinner experience. The menu of food selections was nice. The customer service was fantastic. We had a great waitress that was knowledgeable and considerate. But what was not good was the freshness of the meat. My partner order the jerk chicken and it was less than fresh, that was a big...
