“good food but...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

I understand that this a chain restaurant and as such the menu needs to appeal to a large variety of tastes but I felt like the restaurant should offer more Carribean/ Bahamian food choices. Under seafood there are only 6 choices but there are 8 choices of burgers. The only conch item on the menu is the conch fritters which were not very good (soggy in the middle and very bland). The Cuban sandwich was very good and my husband enjoyed the coconut shrimp. As other people have said we felt a bit rushed. We were seated immediately upon entering the restaurant but we were the last ones seated in a particular section. As soon as people started leaving in that section they started sweeping the floor and turning the seats upside down because they were going to be spraying for bugs later in the evening. By the time our dinner came we were the only ones in a section of turned over chairs and benches. Our server was very nice and friendly but obviously wanted us to finish up so he could leave. He never asked if we wanted coffee or dessert and just put the check down when collecting out dinner dishes. The location is very convenient to many hotels/ time shares and the food is better than many of the restaurants nearby so would I go back? yes but I'll set my expectations a bit lower.

“AWESOME!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

This is ONE of the BEST places I have ever eaten at. The food, atmosphere, and staff are at the top of the game!! Our family ate here twice while staying at Courtyard Marriott located behind this place. We LOVED it. The Lobster quesadilla's, spinach dip, fried chicken, jerk chicken, and fish tacos are all superb!! I highly recommend eating here! They have outside seating with live music and don"t let the long lines scare you away!

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Our party of 6 enjoyed our food and decided to go back for round two the next night. Over the two nights we had appetizers: habanero wings, jerk wings, onion rings; entrees: pan seared salmon pasta, the shrimp and lobster pasta, and jerk pasta. Will definitely return to this one or one in any other area when I am traveling.

“Christmas 2013”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

This is by far the best restaurant I have ever been to. The atmosphere, service, food and live music makes it a great place to go to for couples, single people and families. The food is awesome. However, they had taken the Cuban bread off the menu. This is the best appetizer that is on the menu and the most popular.
