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

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...

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
