First of all, unless you've been here before you'll need directions. It is located off the beaten path in a residential section. Hence the place is frequented almost exclusively by locals. The place specializes in jerk chicken and pork but offers a variety of other items as well. We were a party of four and I chose the jerk chicken... More

Many trips to Augusta but first visit to the cafe. Service and food was exceptional. The prices are very good too. The beer and wine selection is top notch. If you want a great meal in a uniquely comfortable setting this is the place.

We stopped in here for lunch today and left uninspired. Jerk chicken salad had way too much dressing on it. Kids grilled cheese was a disgrace. Service was pretty average too. I doubt we will return especially as it is not near anything else we would likely to go to.

They have great key lime martini! Green Jacket salad so good, fried shrimp very good. Surf and turf was not good at all. Over cooked meat and bad over fried shrimp. I will just stick with a salad or the beans and rice next time.

I thought our gps was taking us to someone's house. This is in a residential area. It seems to be a local spot and I understand why. We tried the Caribbean wings as an appetizer. They were very good -flavorful but not too spicy. Husband had the Cheeseburger in Paradise and enjoyed it. I had crab cake sandwich. It was... More

Loved the decor here. Reminded us of a beach shack. Very cute place. When we walked in, we were told to sit anywhere. We started to go to an area by the window and the server there told us that we'd get faster service if we sat in the back. She as cleaning tables in her section, so I guess... More

03/26/2006 - Overall Experience: A party of 10, and all 10 meals came out cold and missing items. Some meals were sent back and taken off the order with my friends electing to just have drinks, while others were just accepted due to poor service. The male server we had made multiple mistakes with the order so we elected to... More

I have been there many times with work outings and even a few personal trips. It's decent food, BUT depending on the dish, it can also be way overpriced for what you get. Just be sure to avoid the specials on scallops. I love scallops, and they weren't bad. BUT, the price was about $26 for I believe 5 scallops... More

If you just saw this place from the outside you would probably not stop, but the food is well worth a visit. It has a beach shack décor, but is famous for the Green Jacket Salad, and has the best crab cakes you can imagine. Service is always great and the prices are reasonable.
