OK so I have had Jamaican food while stopping there on a cruise. Cee Dee's is a very good "Americanized" Jamaican restaurant. By that I mean the jerk has been cooled off a bit for the American palate. We were there with another couple and managed to try jerk chicken, curried chicken, and curried goat. Out friends had never had... More

Really good island food, cooked homestyle. Friendly service, but don't go when you're in a hurry. Jamaican restaurant food is mostly already prepared when you get there, but you won't get it in a hurry. Lunch is always a much better deal than dinner, as the price is cheaper for exactly the same menu. Sadly, they often don't have everything... More

The food and service were great. I had jerk chicken and my husband had the ox tail both were well seasoned. We also ordered a slice of rum cake, a very dense rum soaked cake. But the item that will have me going back is the ginger beer, they make their own ginger beer and its delicious. Unlike any ginger... More

My sweetie likes this place better than I. She had stew and said it was fantastic. I had a jerk salad. It was Okay. I love vinegar. But the dressing was a flavor that I didn't really care for. Plantains were on the soft side with a little crunch & sweet. The atmosphere good. I'd come back. People were nice... More

I met my sister here for lunch and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. I had the curry chicken and my sister had the jerk chicken. We both had it with rice, plantains and cabbage. I thought mine was very tasty. The plantains were cooked perfectly. At first my sister thought her chicken was a tad too vinegary, then she decided... More

Went for dinner. Lowest price entrée was $10. Seemed expensive. Lunch specials are $5. This is a new location for them. The place was clean. The service was slow, despite the fact no one was there. The food was good. The curry goat, contained almost no meat...mostly bone. The jerk chicken as ok. The rice was very good. If I... More

We used to go to Cee Dee's at the Swan location, but that place was quite dicey. These are some really cool digs. Service is a little bit off. Food was pretty decent. The tropical drink selection was super good. I had a Hibiscus drink that I long for. The jerk chicken was OK. Hubby had a chicken stew dish... More

I had the stew beef dish and it was very tender and flavorful. The meals come with a bean and rice mixture with a choice of two sides. The rum drinks are fabulous! Most dishes start at around $12 but I will still come back again and try another dish. My friends had the curry chicken and chicken friccaisse(sp) and... More

Have been to this restaurant several times now. I'm not sure about the previous mediocre reviews, but maybe the restaurant has gotten better. I was pleasantly surprised the first time I ate here, and have been consistently pleased. I have eaten the goat curry, chicken curry, and jerk chicken, and believe that this is pretty authentic Jamaican food. Be careful,... More

My husband and I ate here for lunch a few days ago and were very disappointed with our order. I ordered the jerk chicken, it was warm not hot and had no flavor. He had the curry chicken which was OK. that's all. Would not recommend this restaurant.
