I had this at a 2nd open-air food court near Basseterre. Called Jam Rock 2. The food was fast, excellent and one could easily eat there every day for a week. I recommend the oxtail - it's perfectly delicious. The food court is open air with umbrella shelters and chairs and the sun can be fierce. But for good local... More

We were a group of 6 that dined here last week. We wanted to taste a bit of everything and the chef agreed to make appetizer plates out of several dishes on the menu. We had jerk chicken, wings, ribs and conch fritters. All were excellent and rather spicy. Several people had grouper which they raved about and I had... More

We ate here after snorkeling along the beach. It was beautiful. We had the jerk chicken. it was spicy but very delicious. Our son had the BBQ chicken and loved it. Our 8 year old wasn't into the chicken and they were gracious enough to let her have a side of french fries, only. She was happy. We saw others... More

This place has a nice setting on Frigate Bay Beach and good food. Our tour guide/ taxi suggested it to us. We had the jerk chicken and it was the best I have ever had including in Jamaica! Also enjoyed the red snapper and jerk pulled pork. You also should try Festival. I highly recommend the jerk food especially if... More

We visited Jam Rock twice during our vacation on St Kitts - this stretch of South Friars Beach is lovely, plenty of room, beautiful sand and warm water. We had sun loungers and an umbrella for the day and stayed until sunset. Lunch in the restaurant was excellent - large butterflied shrimp in a ginger and garlic sauce, 'rice and... More

We had a casual dinner at Jam Rock one evening on our vacation. I had the pan seared grouper and it was good. My husband had the jerk chicken and it was ok. Our table was outside and the view was nice but we had an unpleasant odor that wafted though several times during our meal. There was a large... More

If you want traditional food in a relaxed environment with quality food that you will certainly go back for more. There is plenty of variety with each cabin having different selections of food.

Four words: best whole red snapper. Fresh caught fish fried lightly; fall off the bone tender cooked to perfection.If you are looking for a good jerk, the pork has a medley flavor only to be found in Jamaica. The scotch bonnet will knock you off your feet.(You can also get in chicken if that's more your style.) The rum punch... More
