“Sister Lou's”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

So much fun! Great crab (only one dish). She has a bar and serves the locals, too. The marine police were there when we were, so we knew we were in for a treat!

“Great crab, fun river stop”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

This is right on Black River before the low bridge where the tour pontoon boats have to turn around. We enjoyed the crab - $400J for two stuffed crabs at this time. The crab is removed from the shell, cooked and seasoned and put back in - no work at all! Bar has soft drinks and beer and such too. Very pleasant stop if you are on the river.

“A GREAT TRIP AND A GREAT LADY!!!!!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We visited Sister Lou's on the Black River in Jamaica on Feb 6/2013. It was one of our most memorable experiences on our trip to Jamaica. The boat ride up the Black River is one of the most beautiful trips, beyond description!!! Sister Lou is a great lady, very friendly and cooks the BEST crab on the planet!!! All in all, I urge anyone traveling in Jamaica to jump in a boat from the town of Black River (with Captain Garfield) and take the trip up the river to Sister Lou's. I GUARANTEE you won't be disappointed!!!! It is a VERY humbling and enjoyable experience.

“Yummy Stuffed Crabs”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Very casual and very delicious. If you go up the Black River in a smaller boat (as opposed to one of the covered "safari" boats), ask your captain to pull over so you can get out and enjoy Sister Lou's delicious seasoned crab.
