Conch chowder is great when they have it. Good steaks. Great jerk seasoning, comes with rice and beans.

Can't go wrong with Chester's. Relaxed, island atmosphere with tremendously fine jerk chicken. Don't miss it.

I see an asterisk and I always wonder what the catch is? At Chester's its the service. I've driven past Chester's a number of times and finally bit the bullet and went in. I wish I hadn't bothered. I have no qualms with the food, authentic, local and rather tasty. The service and atmosphere was appalling, actually it felt quite sinister. The girl behind the counter couldn't care less and was completely uninterested in serving us. The car park was weird, 6 men were in the carpark and they were staring us down, are tourists not allowed to visit Chester's?

Having heard great reviews about Chester's went to try it for ourselves and came away very disappointed. Service was offhanded at best, totally unhelpful girl behind the counter who wouldn't (or couldn't?) answer a couple of questions we had about items on the menu. Finally ordered jerk chicken which had little flavour and the meat was so dry ... never again.

We found the Trip Advisor reviews of Chester's Jerk Chicken Stand to be seriously over the top. The facility is very basic, the service perfunctory at best, and the food only middling. Most of the reviews raved about the chicken and pork. We found it less than compelling -- large portions, comparatively inexpensive, but far removed from the raves given by most reviewers. The staff at the stand made us feel unwelcome and it certainly lacked charm or any of the positive attributes one hopes for in a local, non-chain food stand. We won't be back, even though we drive through Bodden Town regularly when we are on the island, and we could not recommend it to others.
