Definitely come here for some grilled fish and meats. Everything is prepared fresh and goes fast - well worth the price!

“Good seafood – shame about the BBQ sauce”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012

We went here on our first night in Utilla, this is a rustic, relaxed place to come and get some fresh seafood. The menu changes due to what is caught that day, so you are guaranteed fresh and well cooked food. The only thing is that the fish is finished in a BBQ glaze ontop of it (obviously you can ask for it not to have this on it) however, on the menu it doesn’t say with BBQ sauce on it, otherwise we’d have said no to this! This did unfortunately overpower what would have been lovely fish. Otherwise, the service was quick and efficient and the fish fresh – what more can you ask for?

“Fabulous Grilled Seafood...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2012

If your a true seafood lover... then you'll love RJ's! Island treats like baracuda, wahoo, and kingfish are the specialties and everything is grilled to perfection! Bring your appetite because the servings are huge!!! Too bad they are only open 3 days a week... but I can imagine that the other restaurant owners are grateful!!!

“Best food. Full stop.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2012

It's nothing special to look at but if you want a good hearty BBQesque meal that is probably the best you've ever tasted as one of the lowest prices you can imagine...
