Hands down delicious. A big menu to choose from, lively place and bar. We shared a table with some strangers and became friends quickly. Rice and peas is very, very good. Plenty to eat. Highly recommend it.

We dined here three times for the chicken. It really is excellent. The chicken soup is also definitely worth ordering, even on a hot summer day.

This place is a bare bones jerk shack literally just mere steps off the highway. It is super casual. The drinks and happy hour are cheap. The jerk chicken is good. The fish is excellent, but the fish is prepared at the time of order....More
