We found Kurt's Korner thru a posting on the Tripadvisor Cayman forum.. Since we were staying at The Reef, it was a very short drive to Kurt's in Old Man Bay. We had stopped a day earlier on our return from Rum Point and got a copy of their menu as friends would be joining us.

In addition to what was on the printed menu, there were several specials, including grouper and snapper which could be prepared various ways, baked chicken, and one or two other items. We all opted for the grilled grouper fillet, which was $9 CI. Everyone had steamed vegetables as one side and I was the only one who didn't have beans and rice for the second side, instead opting for sweet potato fries. The portions were large and the only complaint any of us had was that some of the steamed vegetables didn't get steamed - they were still cold in the middle. Someone from the bar did come to take our drink order but you have to go to the bar to pay - they didn't bring us a bill. We did see some people BYOB and no one seemed to mind or say anything. Non-alcoholic beverages weer the cheapest we say anywhere - only $1CI or $1.25 US. We were pretty full so we passed on dessert.

The place is small, maybe ten tables for 4. It consists of an elevated platform that is covered overhead but the sides were open. I don't recall if there was anything that could be rolled down to enclose the area in bad weather so that's something to keep in mind. Mosquitoes might be an issue too but there was a breeze that night so we had no problem. Quite a few people picked up take-out while we were there and it did get a little crowded as there isn't much room for people to stand while waiting for their food orders.

One issue we had is that the parking lot is very small and shared with the bar. Unfortunately a group of guys in a pick-up truck decided they were just going to park in the middle of the lot, blocking people in and they didn't seem t care one bit. One car parked further down pulled out ,so some other diners were able to get around the truck but when we were ready to leave, another woman pulled into the vacant spot, requiring us to ask her to move so we could get out. She too was oblivious to the fact that parking where she did would trap other diners. People started parking across the street on the shoulder of the road, which isn't that wide.. We could see where parking could be a real issue when the bar is really busy.

All and all it was a nice, relatively inexpensive dinner and we will go back again when we return to GC.

We ate at Kurt's Korner last night. It was a welcome casual dinner served outdoors on a covered deck. First thing you will notice are the prices...much lower than eating at Tukka, Lighthouse, etc. It seemed there were a lot of "locals" getting takeout. I had the Spicy Chicken ($9), which came with my choice of two sides. I chose rice & beans and French fries, the other choices were sweet potato fries or fried Green plaintain. My wife had the grouper special ($9) with a small side salad and rice & beans. Both selections were excellent. The time it took between when our drinks were served and when we received our meals seemed long (about 20 minutes), but we didn't mind. Mary, our server, apologized and brought out a basket of fritters (fried dough), served with a dipping sauce.

The relationship between the adjacent bar (North Shore?) and Kurt's was that alcoholic beverages were served by the bar's server and a separate tab is kept. This resulted in some confusion when I attempted to pay with a credit card. I ended up paying the bar tab in cash in order to make things easier on the staff.

For the two entrees (including the fritters with sauce) and two beers, the bill was $32 US.

Mary told us their hours were 11am-10pm Sun-Thur and 11am-11pm Fri&Sat. Their local phone number is 947-8899. I have a menu and will attempt to post it later.

We found Kurt's as a welcome experience of "Authentic Cayman Cuisine" as it states on their menu. We'll be back.

Directions: proceed west on Queen's Highway from The Reef/Morritt's until the "T" intersection. Make a left and just a short distance past the gas station, Kurt's is on your left after a sharp right turn, behind & to the left of the North Shore bar.
