They have unique specials and the food is very well prepared. I forget about this place but it's worth going out-of-the-way to try.

I generally don't eat meat so when I do, I want it to be good. The ribs and brisket were fabulous ... juicy, succulent, and grilled to perfection. Great bbq sauces. The salad was so-so but the house dressing was very good. We're definitely going back even though this restaurant is an hour from our house. Still want to sample... More

I have been going here for special occasions since this place opened. The food is always good and when I take new people they are always impressed. Highly recommend it. Just have a sober driver if you intend on drinking. Ha ha

Great spot to dine to escape the midwest. Outdoor dining and interior decor take you to the Caribbean! Food in my opinion is average but the rum punch and ambience make up for what the menu lacks. Often live music on Friday or Saturday nights

Caribbean fare with a Midwestern touch. Food was good. Service left a bit to be desired tonight. Two meals late without much notice, a few details on orders wrong. For a group of 8 a twenty percent added gratuity was pushing it tonight.

We each had a different plate and they were all delicious. We split two dessert and they were fantastic. Jamaican inspired food with a twist of Americana.

The Mexican dinner salad sounded good but was definitely not a good choice. It was a very uninspired, unattractive salad with mostly iceberg lettuce and a little chicken, salsa, cheese and a few tortilla strips. I tried some of my husband's chicken fried steak which was good. Service was good.

We were in town visiting our daughter & family. They suggested The Little Grill. We had quick service. We left just before live music started.

We found a hidden gem out here below the Tuttle Creek Dam. Interesting and very good food. Nice island atmosphere with a full bar. We'll be back!

A bit off the beaten path but the food is so good. I shared the seafood gumbo special and got easily over a pound of food for $14.00. They did not skimp on the seafood, potatoes, or rice.

Thank Foodinaire
