My (now) husband and I had our rehearsal dinner for 30 people here. The food was delicious and the service was amazing. Great price and value! We will be back for our next trip to Montego Bay! This is a must stop on your next trip. We stayed at Half Moon and it was a 20 minute ride.

Located just outside Montego Bay on the road to Negril this family owned and operated jerk restaurant. Has delicious jerk chicken and pork, among other things their festival is great too. Festivel is a kind of long fried dumpling made from flour and cornmeal. The service is very friendly and it's a lovely local out door settin

I went here with my partner as we read so many great things about it. I enjoyed the natural fruit juices that they offered and also the cheese quesadillas. My partner enjoyed his jerk chicken and roasted sweet potato. Might I add that it was the largest sweet potato I have ever seen lol. The price is very affordable and... More

Not only the Retro music Sunday evening with the same age DJ :) is the attraction, the food is made to order, fresh and tasty, natural juices made in front of you from real fruits. Relax and dig into my young age music!

This was a great setting for a much deserved after work outing. MVP's casual atmosphere lends to just chilling out, playing dominoes, having a cold drink and great food. The in-door out-door setting gives guests the best of both worlds, shade form the elements, but allows all to feel at one with nature. The service was exceptional even for a... More

What a nice little gem. A local Jamaican favorite of authentic Jamaican Jerk food. We were a party of 7 to include 3 children. Food choices were many and everyone loved their dish.

Well this place is definitely not for locals...The servers pay keen attention to tourists while ignoring their own. I personally have a problem when customer service is skewed in that regard because it means the people are fake and have ulterior motives. So for me...personally...this place is a no go! In addition, the food isn't all that great. Many other... More

MVP Smokehouse has great authentic Jamaican cooking. Just spicy enough with a lot of flavor, even before you add your choice of sauce. The owner and waitstaff are welcoming, friendly, and efficient, and the open-air setting is very comfortable. For 750 Jamaican Dollars, the Chicken and Pork Jerk Special was more than my wife or I could finish, with excellent... More
