The food was great. I had the jerk pork plate. It came with peas and rice along with veges and grilled plantains. The pork was more tender and moist than a comparable plate I had at the Jerk Center in Ocho Rios in January. And that was better than Scotchies! They have live music on Saturday nights. Piped the rest... More

First visit to this place since moving to the area. Had the jerk chicken which was perfection, served with a generous portion of black beans and rice as well as a plantain and a warm cabbage/carrot salad. We will be back. A rare find in an area that has few choices like this!

Best Jamaican food I've ever had! Meat is amazing, workers are very nice, music is awesome. I'm from New York and during every trip back to Maine I'd definitely come back to eat here!

If you're looking for authentic yummy Jamaican food in the Seacoast this is the place to be. The service here is tops, so friendly and kind. I've been coining for many summers now and the quality never goes down. I'm always happy to come back year after year. I love the whole menu. My personal favorite is the beef patty... More

My wife wanted one more lobster roll from 4 Mile Lobster as we headed south out of Maine. I thought I would stop at Flo's to get hot dogs for me and my son but the crowd at Flo's was more than I could stand. Just as my son starts to cry out "But I want a hot dog!" I... More

Stopped there twice in the same day on my way to long sands to go surfing. Lunch was a mix of jerk chicken and jerk pork, both of which were amazing. Dinner was a mix of curried goat and oxtail. I haven't had food like this since my last trip to Jamaica 6+ yrs. ago. Thank you!

I have driven by the Jamaican Jerk Center for a few years, always wondering what it is like and wishing it were open. Well, it was always open. I don't know why the lot is always empty. Maybe the time to go is at night. I know they have live music Saturday nights. I'd love to get to that sometime.... More

Looking for an inexpensive meal that wasnt fast food. We happened upon this place early on a Monday evening. We hesitated to stop as there was only one other car there. Gal that waited on us was native Jamaican and as friendly as you would expect. Food was great and authentic. Would like to go when the reggae band is... More
