“The only happening place in the Belize airport!”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

I had read about Jett before arriving in Belize and was happy to see him upon leaving. His little bar was bursting at the seams (perhaps because it's the only bar in the little airport?). We had just eaten or I would have tried one of the hot dogs. The rum punch was good.

“A Destination in Itself!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

You cannot leave Belize without having a Jett's hot dog. Period. Jett is a living legend. The dogs are great!

“Very nice man”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Jett's bar is no longer the original since it was burned down in a fire earlier this year. It's really so sad but that doesn't stop dear old Jett from having a smile on his face and keeping his business open. Now it's just a plain looking store without any color and life. Jett told me he is trying to build it up again but the airport wants to shut him down. I hope he can get it back to the way it was he is really such a sweet kind man with the best rum punch there is! He also has food available for purchase. If you are in the airport go on and spot by don't let the way the place looks discourage you!

“The awesome corner of the Belize City International Airport”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Jett's Bar is a great place to end your vacation to Belize off at. The rum punch is great as is beer. It is the atmosphere that makes the place great. To spend time looking at the various money currencies from around the world hanging on the walls or off of strings is truly interesting. There is even some Canadian Tire money hanging off of a string. You get a chance to talk to everybody as you stand around the little bar. I can't remember with travel website it was but Jett's Bar was on the top ten airport bars in the world, which is pretty impressive for a small bar and a small country such as Belize.

The hot dogs are ok, it is something quick and fast to eat before getting on to your flight.

“Bad service, expensive drinks”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

At the airport there is a captive audience and if you want a drink there is only one place to go. If this restaraunt had any competition at all it would not survive. Order beer and get the price before he opens the bottle.
