Wanted to go to this place and Elvis was our man!! He showed us around town and this was our first stop. Got to chat with the owner who was very nice and friendly, as was the staff. Cool little spot off the trail just a little. Get a guide like Elvis (you can't miss him). Chicken has good flavor... More

So, if you are in Falmouth and brave enough to venture out without a tour, this place is a decent stop in for a red stripe and some jerk. There may be some free entertainment as well. The reggae keeps playing and eventually the waitresses come by. Very slow, but they offer free wifi, so as a cruiser, that's nice.... More

I met my fiance here in April of 2015. Peppers is the BEST place to go for jerk chicken! Great place to hang out and spend a few hours. Atmosphere is great, local performers, shade, just a fun place. Yes, they will charge tourists a hire price than locals. Locals can't afford to pay as much as we can. Everyone... More

Do you know why there aren't any prices posted for the food menu? So they can charge you $35 for some dry and bland jerk chicken, some overcooked plantains, and 2 Red Stripes. I've had better jerk chicken in the ship cafe.

When you come in to port here, they recommend you stay inside the gated area, but we wanted to try some local cuisine. When we exited it was clear as to why they recommend staying in, the people swarmed us like crazy. I hired a local named "Elvis" to be our guide and keep everyone else away for a tip,... More

This little out of the way jerk joint food was very good. The hut was outside some bugs so beware but it was clean and airy. The bathroom needed some attention. The owner introduced himself and told us the history of the place. This is a must eat place. Jerk chicken was sooooooooooo good. Some of the people had the... More

The hospitality was amazing. People and service was great. The jerk chicken and pork was so wonderful. The sauce I could drink it was so good. If you come to Jamaica I recommend coming to this place. Best decision to come here ever. The food again and so amazing!!!!!!!

Pepper's Jerk Center has the most amazing, authentic jerk chicken. It has just the right amount of heat to it and it was juicy the way I like my chicken. So, if you are ever in Falmouth, Jamaica be sure to stop by Pepper's Jerk Center.

Recently had the opportunity to stop by and check out this spot and was so happy that we did. I had the jerk chicken and it was so good and the waitress was very sweet. There was another woman there named Bee who also worked there who would come and check on us regularly to ensure we didn't need anything.... More

Our tour guide brought us here for jerk chicken and a couple bottles of Red Stripe, and it was great. Authentic outdoor bar filled with locals but enough cruise ship passengers that it felt comfortable to visit as a tourist, too. One note-- as a tourist, expect to pay more than the locals. But that's not a surprise, and the... More
