“Suprizing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2014

looks are very deceiving. This place looks nothing like the food taste. I ate there twice in one day. The vibe can be a bit confusing,no menu posted.If you are kind of a paranoid individual,then you may want to go with a local,like your driver or tour guide. You in a real local hang out,and they can be a bit aggressive with wanting you to support then .There are about 4 or 5 little shops that sell beer. and they all want you to buy from them,for this is how they survive. I bought a beer for every single one,and view it like a block party..lol

I love going to the shack when I'm here, getting great freshly cooked local produce, in a great environment, Who knows you could even meet a few famous Artists passing through like i have (Jah Cure and Sizzla).

“Great Sea food!!!!Muah”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Simply it's just great food,
like everyone else says, i take clients there & i go there myself..
The atmosphere is definitely of a local flavor & definitely cultural flavor as the area is totally filled with Jamaican's and little shop's, bars & local restaurants, such as the 1 i always get breakfast in the morning, but for great sea food with a local taste and a area with the cultural atmosphere, Thumbs up....

“Lunch at Lobster Shack Reggae Beach Ocho Rios”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

I was one of a family get together for lunch , along with my sister, my neice & family, nephew & family all visiting from England. I was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was great, food was tastey & everyone had enough of the lobsters, fried fish, festivals, plantain etc. The four youngsters were completely at home ..All staff members went the extra mile to make sure we enjoyed ourslves. Will certainly visit when next I am in Ocho Rios.( I live in Kingston)
