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...

Excellent live music. Food is good. A very friendly place. Order as soon as you get there because the kitchen gets bogged down sometimes.

Was visiting Manhattan and had a great evening there, lots of fun. The drinks were good and generous. Had a platter of frog legs and they were very good as were the house fries. Music was nice and overall atmosphere was festive. This is not a fine dining place but more of an overall experience. Staff was friendly and efficient,... More

When I went to K-State this was one of the places we use to hit to change it up, get away from town, and enjoy something different. Spicy jerk chicken was delic- stop in for a beer and some food. Took my (now wife) for a drive around Tuttle and stopped here for dinner on our first date. Even though... More

We were in town for a week and decided to give this a try based on tripadvisor. This was highly disappointing. We ordered the jerk chicken and it was extremely spicy (and we like spicy food). Small portions (we had to eat a second dinner), and the salad was pretty gross. The live entertainment was great, but it was the... More

Not that great. They only have a few things with jerk seasoning on it, and still not that impressive. Make the extra drive to Junction City and visit Ocho Rios

I ate here for a Christmas Party in 2012 and the food was great and the entertainment was even better. I have been raving about it since. I took my son last night after telling him how great it was but we were very disappointed! Since my son lived in the south he was hoping for some authentic gumbo but... More
