We stopped here for lunch after our visit to Mystic Mountain. We had the jerk chicken and jerk pork. The food was good. You order your food at the cashier and then a waitress brings it to you. A little awkward setup. Would go again if ever in Ocho Rios.

It was good but there are better Boston is the place to go for jerk but Ochi does a nice job. Try someplace different try a place that's not mainstream will be delightfully surprised

The food is delicious I totally enjoyed the meal. What I didn't like was the poor customer service that was delivered from management and staff. I wanted to speak with the manager and the Manager didn't have the courtesy to speak to come and speak to me. Other than that the Jerk pork was delicious.

We really enjoyed the food and music (live steel drummer) at the Jerk Center. Both were exceptional. The service was okay at best. The servers were swamped and were not very accommodating. Anything we requested, felt like it needed to start with an apology, "I'm sorry, could we get some water please?" That's unfortunate bc that hurts what could be... More

If your looking for traditional Caribbean jerk chicken, this is the place for you! Paired with a Red Stripe, you can't go wrong! If you order anything that requires ketchup, they make their own and it's amazing! We've tried to recreate it once back home, but can't seem to get it right. Guess we'll just have to go back!
