I ordered the regular wings and asked for one 666. The server accommodated that request. That made it worth the trip. I took one bite and it made me tear up. The service was good and personal. I ordered the 3 BBQ choices and they combined with the sauces were just average. This to me was a one time experience.

Although the restaurant presents a pirate theme, the food wasn't fabulous, depending upon what you ordered. Some of the appetizers were good, some of them poor. The poor ones were any of the breaded ones, i.e. conch fritters--very doughy and heavily breaded. The curried goat and barbecued shrimp apps were stellar! The wings were cooked too long and were dry.... More

Took a drive out to Stillwater and as we passed by the restaurant, the smell of the food grabbed us and pulled us in! Unfortunately, I wasn't impressed with the food or the service. The combination of the disorganized greeter and table hostess, along with sub-par attentiveness from the server and the angry attitude of the food runner, all contributed... More

service was great, was so looking forward to a great tasting lunch. Had read reviews and seen DD & D had great things to say also. Love Caribbean food, but not too sure what happened today, pork tacos, and the jerk chicken sandwich had been our choices, and were terribly disappointed, love the city of Stillwater, but don't think I...

Saw Smalley's on Diners, Dine-ins and Dives, wanted to try the "triple 6" wings, the wait staff recommended against getting them and suggested that I get some milder wings with a side of the "triple 6" sauce. Her words were the "triple 6" wings will ruin your day, she was right that was the hottest sauce I have every tried.... More

I really love the wings. I think if you like wings you have to go when it's all you can eat though. Although they taste very good their rather small. It's well worth the cost

Good variety. Excellent taste. Everything fresh and cooked to perfection. Definitely will go back to try something different and experience the Pirate's surprise touch,

We went here on a Tuesday afternoon to check out the happy hour and were glad we did. The Jerk Pork tacos are delicious and only $3 each during happy hour. Two is enough. I tried a rum punch drink that was a little too sweet for me, so I switched to Dark and Stormy's and liked their version. We... More

I first saw this restaurant on Food network's Diner, drive-ins and dives. My sister in law heard great things about their goat curry with roti. We went there on Friday night, it was busy and we were a party of 9 so we put our name on the waiting list and they called us back about an hour later. Our... More
