Spiny lobster, whole fried snapper were delicious. Great beach vibe as it sits on the beach with sand for floors. Decorated brilliantly with all things found in the sea. Corals, shells, fishing nets, you name it it was there. Really glad we took the walk...down to try it out!More

Three of us had a late lunch here. Service was very good. The restaurant is right on the beach. There is a good view of Montserrat from the upstairs dining room. The prices are on the high end, but the place is locally owned do...I liked supporting it. The drinks were good. The menu was a bit confusing to us, so we ended up with an extra salad that was not necessary. My husband thought his tuna salad was going to be made of fresh grilled tuna instead of canned (we asked first). However, the red snapper and lobster were very good!More

We had lunch there yesterday! Very nice. Our serving did a good job and the food was well prepared. We had burgers cooked to order and the fries were fresh cut/cooked. We couldn't stop there and added dessert. Yum. Angie came out to visit us...and was so warm and friendly. We had some good laughs while there. Decor is terrific and having so many different areas to hang with family and friends is awesome. Definitely will come again next time to the island!More

With not too many choices around, we trekked up the hill from Darkwood Beach to OJ'S and we're pleased to see red snapper on the menu. Unfortunately there was only one serving left, so the other 2 in our party ordered the mahi mahi -...nicely grilled with creole sauce on the side, rice and peas (tasty) and a salad. I also tried the special rum punch - a little bit too sweet and nutmeggy for me - but definitely got the "punch". Great view from the upper deck at the Caribbean sea. Service kinda slow by north American standards, but, hey - we're on vacation people! Chill! Very clean and well equipped bathrooms - bonus!More

Visited for Sunday evening music. OJs is a regular holiday pitstop. Food is good, service friendly and the place has lots of character. Always seems to be popular with the locals, which I take as a good sign.

HORRIBLE SERVICE. Place was completely empty... walked in bc it started raining on the beach. Sat down, ordered, food took two hours to come out. It all tasted fine but two hours! By the time we got the food my kids were very upset. If...it was busy I would understand but we were the only four in the place w East orders such as cheese burgers and fries.More

Very informal restaurant, but not inexpensive. There are better places nearby (Miracles, for one). Service was spotty.

Fun atmosphere throughout the restaurant- great decor! Love that it’s right on the beach! Our drinks and food came out fast, and the portions were a generous size! A cheeseburger and fries, plus a whopping big chicken sandwich did not disappoint in flavour! Giving 4/5...because I could tell we are probably lucky to have been there when it wasn’t busy... otherwise it’s easy to tell our service could have gone a different way. Friendly staff at least! And we were thrilled with a wonderful highchair for our baby!More

Friendly staff and good food, what better recommendation. Especially recommended for evenings when they have live music, the fusion group that played were exceptional, as was the female singer.

We have been to this restaurant several times over the years and it never ceases to amaze us. The setting is fantastic and the decor is shabby-chic meets beach. Food is always good and the beer is always cold!
