First timers at Donna's, got the curry goat and jerk chicken. Tasty and tender meat, I would recommend trying it out if you're in the area. Good Jamaican food!

If you're looking for great tasting authentic Jamaican food this is the place. I've been there for breakfast and dinner, no complaints. The staff is always friendly and helpful.

My dad took my girlfriend, my daughter, and myself to this restaurant for some "good old fashioned Jamaican food". I have eaten a lot of Jamaican food in my time, but I have to say that this place reminded me most of home, both in the taste, and the attitude of the staff. We were there before the dinner rush,...

The Oxtail and the Soup is good HOWEVER, THE ATTITUDE AND SERVICE IS HORRIBLE. The staff is rude and make you feel like they are doing you a huge favor by serving you When someone is serving food they should be warm and friendly. If you cannot provide this, close the place. I would not recommend. There are a lot... More

If you're looking for Jamaican food at lunchtime on a Sunday, Donna's is probably one of the few places that you will find open. The food is okay, nothing to write home about, especially since there are many other options in this area. BUT, if you must have some island food on Sunday, come here. If you can wait until... More

I must eat here once a week! The curry goat and brown stew are great and the brunch on the weekends are the best bang for your buck!

if you love jamaican food and you haven't been to donna's, then you must go! it's set up like a lunch line, and because of the really great lunch specials (ranging from $3.99) the line can be really long..but it's so worth it!! either breakfast, lunch or dinner..you'll enjoy the food!!
