The jerk chicken and jerk pork were fantastic! Two people could have shared one order. They give you a lot of food.

We ate at a few Jerk Chicken spots while on vacation and this was by far the most delicious. The sauce is amazing.

What a great place to get the local flare. Had the jerk chicken only about $10 US. Comes with red beans and rice, cornbread, and slaw. So good! Only complaint was one of the staff members was unpleasant to say the least.

We tried the chicken one night; good taste and large serving is OK for two if you had some sides to go with it. This is good for take away.

Drove 20 minutes to pick up a fish that I order and she sold it to her friend and told me fish finish. What kind of slackness is that? She showed no remorse and no apology given. On top of it all she had an attitude! Will not buy again from there and I will spread the word about Marcia's... More

We have been to a few of the Jerk restaurants and stands around the island and we think this is the best. The seasoning is dark and rich, spicy without going over board on the heat. Chicken and pork, reasonable prices. Good sides, rice and peas, salad and plantain. Fry bread too, but that wasn't great. They have nice picnic... More

Decided to stop here to eat from visiting Rum Point. Did not disappoint. Their jerk chicken was delicious. So much so that my toddler literally sat quietly and ate a lot of it.
