We had a great time and will go back. The tables were a little run down but the reggae band was great. They play from 6-10. They used to have a fire but had trouble getting the permits this year and assured us there would be one next year. The place opens around July4th and closes Labor Day. Music is... More

After years of going by this place, we tried it. We do not need to do it again. It might be a nice spot if you are there for the music. They were offering a coupon......

We've been coming here since 2005. Delicious food and lovely people. Don't let the roadside stand look throw you off. A must during your stay in the area

We spent the night in Maine and after a long day at the beach we were starving. Desperate for food, we were excited to see the sign for Jamaican food but from that point it all went bad. We had to wait forever to even order and eventually they took our order of Jerk Chicken, Curried Goat and Cocoa Bread.... More

Although I am a local resident, this was my first visit to the Jamaican Jerk Center and the food was "okay." It was late September at the end of the summer season so they didn't have all menu items available. My group tried the jerk chicken and pork and found it to be dry with many small bones to navigate... More

Who would have expected to find Jamaican food in Maine. But driving up route 1 there is a Jamacian flag signaling good for ahead. Stoped here for dinner, it was a beautiful night, there was a good band playing, and the food was great. I started with a Jamacian pie, which was great, and I had the Salt Fish and... More

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!
