We happened upon the smaller version of this Jamaican delight for lunch one day and during our visit to boca, planned to try the larger ( but still very quaint) location for dinner. The food is truly amazing. Best jerk chicken ever, and the chef makes a coconut 'gravy' to use on anything of your choice. I choose salmon, it... More

We were immediately greeted & seated upon arrival; ordered ginger beers (nonalcoholic); received attentive & prompted service. We spent $33.81 between 2 people; ordered jerked chicken & curry chicken with side of plantains, rice, cabbage with oxtail gravy to pour over rice. Bread pudding is delicious but patrons might explode upon consumption due to overeating.

I have been to RockSteady many times over the past few years, primarily with family. I have also taken work colleagues. I have never been disappointed. They are able to accommodate large parties (12 or more). Note: they take reservations. The food is authentic Jamaican fare and received my mother's seal of approval. Curried goat, jerk chicken and escoveitch snapper... More

I eat at Rock Steady on a steady basis. They offer a very inexpensive lunch special of either Jerk or Curry Chicken with 2 sides. Today the place was especially busy and I was in and out in less than 25 minutes! I love this place and recommend it to anyone looking for authentic Jamaican experience.

My family stopped in for lunch. The curry chicken and jerk chicken was very good. We loved the plantain. We also loved the jerk French fries.

Fantastic lunch specials. Can't beat the jerk chicken, rice and peas with steamed cabbage. Quaint little seating area with good old Bob on the wall and hopefully on the radio. Very good food at a very reasonable price.

This is one of the most underrated restaurants in Boca. The food is exceptional! Its a shame that this place gets ignored because of the mediocre BBQ place thats next door. Jamaican doesn't always mean hot spicy jerk chicken! There is something tasty for everyone at Rocksteady.

I used to frequent this place for lunch when I worked in Boca Raton. Since I work in Miami now I'm only able to get there during the weekend. Try the Jerk Chicken with Rice and Peas and Salad with Jerk Raspberry Dressing with Plantains. Ask them to recommend a beastly cold island beer to go with!

Bad experience. Not sure how this resteraunt got rated so high. The place was sweltering hot. Special was curry goat. Tried to order it, they were out. Decided to get jerk scallops, they were out. Out of shrimp. Out of coke. We couldn't even understand how they were out of everything, it was 6pm and not one other customer the... More
