Below average Jerk Chicken and not particularly friendly service. Thought my chicken was dry and not really flavorful. Think there are much better options in the area. I believe they Cater to the tourist trade. Our friends who are from Jamaica didn’t care for their...food too much stating the Roni wasnt actually Roni. The beer was cold though.More

Had a stop here, place is pretty clean, bathroom facilities well kept/clean. nice picturesque facility great for taking photos and the staff is pleasant. Cashier moved pretty proficiently., Ordered the chicken/ pork/ soup. the meat kind could have used a little more to get the...meat darker as it was kinda pale which did not make it appealing, food was edible (what is up with that watery sauce) . had the beef soup felt warm in the cup but having it was tepid watered down and the chicken soup had no food in it and it was not requested like that. Also check your bag if you get served everything, it was only 1 server i saw serving she must have been overwhelmed.More

The best jerk chicken we had while on a family vacation. I’m fact, it was so good we went twice! Highly recommend for a quick, inexpensive lunch or dinner!

We tried the goat curry which was bland and full of bones and the jerk pork which was mostly fat and gristle. The rice and peas were okay. The Dragon beer was a blessing.

Part of my tour I was only offered Jerk Chicken, Jerk Pork or Fried Chicken. I opted for the Fried Chicken as Jerk spices affect my nasal passages. I asked for Drumsticks but, was told that I can get a thigh with a Dreamstick attached...I only got two thighs with no Drumstick Very little meat was on the thighs. I sauce on the beans was tasty with the rice. The waitress was writing orders on her hand. I guess that no paper was available. Drinks were included such as juices, pepsi, and ting a grapefruit soda.More

Went with the family to purchase meal and the cashier is asking for tip. If you comply, the tip amount is not shown on your bill, next, why should the cashier asked for tip when there is not additional service, as well suppose i intend...to pay someone else the tip, do I have to pay another tip since the cashier already highjacked the first tip. It seem distasteful to be asking to take tip from my money instead of allowing me to pay at my request. The food was awesome but the action of the cashier was rather distasteful. If this is the practice, it is a turn off.More

Our driver, Kenroy took us here on the way home from Dunn's River Falls. We were all starving and wanted authentic Jamaican food, but did not want to try some shady hole in the wall. This was wonderful. Super clean, outdoor dining (covered). The food...was excellent. We all got jerk chicken with rice and peas (which are actually beans). It was spicy and delicious (but the kids loved it too). Our driver got curry goat. Our 6 year old was brave enough to try it and loved it. Prices were super reasonable, you get tons of food. If you are out and about in Jamaica give it a try!More

We ate here twice on our last visit to St Ann. We had the curry goat, jerk chicken, festival, jerk rabbit and stew slice fish. We loved everything except the slice fish. Food was fresh. Rice and peas tasty. We will be back next trip...for sure!More

Me and everyone in my family and friends book our flight to Jamaica to fit in with the opening hours of this jerk center. I always have rice and peas with both curry chicken and jerk chicken with festivals on the side and a bottle...of their very cold pepsi. Sometimes Ifeel like I go to Jamaica just to stop by Ultimate.More

It seems more like a spot that people go to for quick and easy fast food than a really small local joint. It's not that it's not authentic, but it's clearly designed to produce a lot of food quickly. Next time we will check with...a few other people about smaller places to go.More

Not sure, but the dining is outside so I doubt it is a problem. Place seems to do a lot of local take-out business so that is an option as well.

I would say 45-60 minutes depending on traffic. It’s less than 5 minutes from the Grand Bahia.
