Every time I go to Jamaica I eat here! The food is delicious as well as inexpensive and the atmosphere is my type of atmosphere. It's all open air with a bar area and then places to sit either restaurant style or big round tables under grass umbrellas. There's a nice breeze that blows through and it just feels so... More

Being in Jamaica we wanted to try authentic Jamaican food. Our taxi driver took us here and the place is gorgeous with an awesome ambiance. The food was also good though I felt the portions were on the smaller side for the price but their hushpuppy type bread was super awesome! I would recommend this as a stop for anyone... More

Food may seem to be a tad pricey, but business is business, and the food tasted great! Nice portions, and your food is cooked on order.

The food at the jerk center is good especially the steam fish and the jerk conch. The staff are very friendly and nice. This is one of my main stop in Ocho Rios

We enjoyed eating just about everything at this Ocho Rios well known stop! Great food, consistent, but you will have about a 45 minute wait for your food. Plenty of time to enjoy a couple of red stripes.

Visited August 18, 2016, as i tried to get food to rush back to Kingston before Usain Bolt's race. So i ordered two servings of 1/4 Jerk Chicken for my parents and a 1/4 Jerk Pork for myself along with festivals for each. My parents were pleased with the Jerk Chicken, no complaints at all from them (which is rare),... More

On the way from the airport to the resort, our driver stopped here to give us a break from the "death drive". This place was really cool. Looks like the locals come here on Wednesdays ( first of the month) to have a small celebration. Place was packed, great sodas, treats, and smoked meats. Definitely a great little hidden gem.

We ate here a couple times and eventually found out that they actually weigh every portion. Jerk chicken is the only thing worth eating and even then, they run out of it! The 3 stars is ONLY for their JERK CHICKEN. One night we ordered food. My husband ordered Jerk Chicken at the Jerk Center. I ordered jerk conch. 45... More
