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 always seem to have good service and good food with nice size portions for the money you spend. Always a good time here.

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

If you like live music, if you like a casual vibe, if you like food from the islands and an eclectic menu, well this is the place to go. Close to Tuttle Creek Lake, you can bring the whole family as they have seating for larger family groups. Red Stripes, Rum Punch, good food and some tunes...all Good!

This is wonderful Americanized Jamaican food. Everything I've tried has been excellent, but my favorite is the gumbo. It is definitely homemade and has been slightly different every time I've had it. The service is good (and friendly) and the atmosphere is relaxed. The decor is fascinating! I really enjoy this place and, from the looks of the parking lot,... More
