The best compliment I can give this place is that you really feel the love of a home cooked meal with family. Momma Dawn and her daughter Jolie were the most genuine people I met while staying in Placencia. My friends and I ate their twice. Both times, we were not disappointed, and yes, both times, we had her key lime pie. To me, the pie was the perfect cap off of our meals, cool, tart, sweet, crumbly crust. Oh my.
Anyway, I highly recommend her grilled lobster tails with coconut rice. As you can see, I left no lobster meat or rice uneaten. My friend had the fried snapper and red beans and rice, that too was yummy. The heading had perfect seasoning, and the fish was juicy flaky, not dry.
On my 2nd night, I had the fried shrimp with sweet and sour dipping sauce. Also yummy.
I'd like to note that Placencia seems to be a seafood driven town, as they mention the lobster and crab season on their menu. Knowing this, it was great to see pork chops on the menu. My other friend had that with the same sweet and sour sauce glaze. I got to taste and it was the same quality one gets in the states. Perfection. Dawn's Grill n Go is perfection.
