I have been to Negril twice this year with teenage nephews. We stayed nearby but ate at Shields several times. The grilled lobster was very nice, the grilled fish disappointing as it lacked the spiced vegetables that it should have had. The boys loved the chicken fingers and found the jerked chicken very good. We timed our meals to coincide with Happy Hour 2 for 1 for the virgin daiquiris. Both during our March visit and at the end of May the restaurant was empty. We were the only ones there throughout our meal. They have a 10% state tax and the restaurant automatically adds a 10% gratuity which is fine. The awkward thing is that they first add the gratuity and base the tax amount not on your food bill but on the food plus the tip. They did seem unable to figure out the bill at 20% and had to calculate 10% twice. The increased amount was absolutely trivial but the practice is deceitful. This on a napkin, there was no bill presented, just two 10% computations on a napkin. I had been told the staff was "limited" but that the owner was eager to extend a helping hand. I might return for drinks but will not eat there again.
