“Travel to Jamaica for lunch time!!!! You Better like it hot... ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2015 NEW

Incredible Family Jamaican restaurant. All the dishes are delicious! The Meyer Global Group enjoys having a team lunch brainstorm session at Rocksteady about our next listing marketing. Really a great place to stop by, lunch is a gift at less than $10 with reggae music... Try it and keep us posted.

“In the mood for jerk food? Go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2015

Excellent Jamaican restaurant. Vegan burger is so good witht jerk sauce. Great jerk chicken & oxtail served with peas & rice. Ask for the raspberry sauce too. A little sweet with the hot. Super nice owners who also cook.

“worst experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2015

Came in for lunch, my sisters were in town.
Have you ever had a waitress ask you what you would like while on the phone?
They were out of plates on their short lunch menu
The Jerk Burger, Crab cakes, and Fish of the day
So instead the 3 of us ordered two plates of veggie burgers with fries and a plate of Salmon with plantains for 69$
Easily my worst experience of any restaurant in East Boca

“Barely average..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2015

This place has so much potential but was a big disappointment.
The worst part was the awful service.
Salads were tired and plain served with a cheap plastic cups of dressing on the side.
The main course was dumped on the table before we were half-way through our appetizers.
Curried goat was forgettable and lukewarm. Apparently the microwave wasn't working too well.
At 8:30pm they announced that they were out of desserts.
We watched 2 separate coupes sit down only to leave 5 minutes later.
Don't ask for a Sprite - it's apparently too rare a drink to keep in stock.
Too many better options with authentic food on SR7.
Save your money and skip this joint...
