I'd never been to this place before. We were just driving by and heard the music and stopped in. When I tell you that the food and music was great. I had chicken spring rolls and table had pizza. Amazing. Fresh made to order. The live band was a great plus. There were different performers. There was also a photographer,... More

I ate the curry lobster and mash potatoes, and it was delicious. I wish I was there in Jamaica to eat some more of the food.

We visited Mongoose for lunch on a weekday. It was not really busy but the workers seemed to be preoccupied with other things instead of focusing on properly sitting us and taking our orders in a timely manner. Upon looking at the menu I noticed the prices where a little overpriced. After receiving our order the food just tasted alright.... More

My friends and I stopped by here after a very long morning scoping out wedding venues. We had 2 servings of fish with mashed potatoes and a serving of fettuccine. All the dishes were delicious, especially the fish! The customer service was good and the waiter was very patient with us. It's not the cheapest but you get good value... More

We were looking for a place to eat that served local food and this was suggested. The food was great and it was in a location right downtown, with parking. The service was great and they were very accommodating to our group of 9.

Thank Manfromja

Mongoose Jamaica is more than a Restaurant, it's an experience.This Restaurant is "something different," We did something 'different' with the name as well, when we choose the "Mongoose" which has a rich history in Jamaica. Breakfast ranges from typical Jamaican fare of ackee and salt fish to pancakes and French toast. For dinner, there's chicken southern fried, curried, grilled lobster, grilled or curried, pork or steak. If you prefer, grab a sandwich, a pizza, some Jamaican jerk, or something from the grill, or maybe a cocktail from the bar. Black forest cakes and cheesecakes are our specialty desserts.
