Reviewed August 3, 2013

Asked taxi driver to take us where he hangs out on a Wednesday night...& here is where we landed. Jerk sauce awesome! Conch Fritters decent, it was 2pm on a Tuesday, so not a lot of ppl. Drinks were good. When on the Island, swing here.

“What a delightful encounter!”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Totally staffed by young, West Indian men, the ambiance is warm, charming and attractive - but it can't hold a candle to the food itself! Real Caribbean flavor! A wonderful addition to the St. Thomas scene - only wish they were open for dinner!

“True Jamaican Food NOT! Yard would be ashamed”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Got the Jerk wings platter w/rice & peas,mac&cheese & green salad(not) shredded lettuce & pepsi. My fiance got curry goat w/rice & peas,
cabbage,plantain, festival & a ginger ale. 2 large cruise ship parties came in after us.They got served before us. My chicken & both our rice & peas was dry tasted like it was microwaved. Mac&cheese was ok. Goat was good. Service was horrible Had to ask for dressing & check. They acted like they didn't understand English. Lucky for them they included the tip for us. Will never go there again. We come to St. Thomas every yr.

“Does Not Rock”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Overpriced with very slow service. If you are not drinking alcohol, service is extremely poor. Food was edible, but just as easily have been Mrs Paul's from the supermarket. Ver high gratuity added to ALL checks do be careful. Slow service, below average food, and no water (available for $2). Only plus is A/C worked. Don't waste your time.

“Don't waste your time or money here!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Waited 1 hr for 5 shrimps we had to wear glasses to see. Poor presentation on the coco shrimps. Bad service and they make you pay 15% gratuity even if service is horrible. Don't go there. Save yourselves!!
