The food here is amazing! I definitely recommend this be one of your stops if your visiting Stillwater! They get busy and don't take reservations. However, you are able to call ahead within an hour and they put you on a list.

The food is good, but the menu has changed and is hard to read, last time there there was a lot of fat on the coal roasted pork shoulder-there should be some, but not thick chunks. They brew their own ginger beer, which is fantastic! I'll definitely be back, but they need to step up their game a bit. The... More

My boyfriend and I had seen this place on Triple D. We were super excited. We ordered chicken wings (BBQ & Jerk) as well as a Their BBQ trio of chicken, shrimp, & ribs. It was all terrible. We didn't like anything we had. All the sauces were gross and all the meat was gross and tough.

This is a fun place! Food is really good, most of it has a little bite to it. Love the Mac and Cheese. Tacos are delicious too. Must try if in Stillwater. But it will be a wait for the food it seems like every time I've been there no matter how busy.

We visited on New Year's Eve, and although the restaurant was busy, our service was still good for our group of 8. Our food was decent, and they had a nice selection of beers to choose from. The consensus at the table was that the sweet potatoes and sausage side dish was the best choice. We did try their free... More

FIrst time there and found the menu intriguing and good mix of caribbean fare -especially Jamaican jerk. Spice levels vary from tepid to almost intolerable, and everything was freshly prepared, hot, with great beer selection to boot. Definitely returning.

Good service but was very disappointed with the food. If you think tomato ketchup is a spice than go for it. Spicy jerk wings was mild (spicy level, should have gone one step up I guess). Do not order the mahi mahi taco. Liked the tater tots.

Smalley's on Friday night (around 8PM) It was pretty busy. Waitress said it would be a half an hour wait/ no one visibile in line, could have got on wait list and left. I think they call you when you're up so you have to be fairly close. We opted to go to the bar section and seat ourselves. I... More
