Fantastic quaint restaurant in South Yarmouth. Been visiting for years! Great food & it is also interesting to talk with Chef Shrimpy. Make sure to take home some homemade jerk sauce for your own enjoyment.

Take some braised chicken and pork, vegetables, rice, jerk sauce on the side, combine them into plates, burritos, and wraps in various combinations. Simple, but the flavors are complex and simply amazing. Chef Shrimpy is very good at his job.

Heard about this place and saw them on Phantom Gourmet, so I decided to give it a try. So glad I did! As soon as I walked in, I could smell the deliciousness! And Chef Shrimpy was so welcoming and friendly. The food is phenomenal....More

A terrific Jerk pork. This was my 3rd visit and maybe its not a date night spot, but if you're looking for a jerk with the fellas this is your spot.

We had a jerk chicken and jerk pork burritos in this small storefront, casual restaurant that only has a handful of tables. The meat was tasty and tender and it was a nice change from the traditional Cape Cod fried seafood type of restaurant.

Chef Shrimpy cooks your food for you in this small storefront. There are a few tables, but most take the food Togo. If you like “jerk” style food, you’ll love it here!!

The only drawbacks to this place is that there are only a few tables and absolutely no public restrooms available. You order at the counter and either take your food with you, or sit at the few tables they have available. But the food and...More
