“Great food, service and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

We went on a Saturday night, with both of us having steak. The steak was cooked exactly how we like it, with a nice amount of vegetables, side salad and baked potato.

All in all I would definitely recommend this as a place to eat for anyone visiting marsh harbour. They even offered a vegetarian option for my dad, which in the end we didn't take up but it was nice that this could have been accommodated.

It closed a little earlier than we would have liked, but this did not take away from the experience at all as reflected in the rating. All in all an excellent night out!

“unexpectedly good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

after a slightly surreal experience trying to book ("we don't take reservations but what would you like to order fish or ribs " ) we joined the locals who were out in force for this communal style buffet based evening. The food was unexpectedly good and after being at mostly empty restaurants around Marsh Harbour I can see why this was packed out. Not open all the time so check....go with low expectations and you might be pleasantly suprrised

“Marsh Harbour Jem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

The Jib Room at Marsh Harboour Marina is a must experience for anyone visiting the Abacos. Their great menu is extensive and has something for every palate. Serving size is more than ample a most patrons will require a doggy bag. They really do something special with their fish tacos..they are to die for !! Very friendly ambiance..don't miss it !!

“Quality food, friendly spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

Open for lunch Wednesday thru Saturday. Dinner Wednesday and Saturday. Wednesday night is rib night, with chicken and fish as alternates. The ribs are excellent. Saturday is steak night, also with the same alternates. Not fancy but very good. Music and limbo afterward. Try it, you'll like it. Steven makes excellent drinks at the bar.

“Don't miss this if you vist Abacos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Marsh Harbour Marina and Jib Room restaurant are family run, and they really make you feel welcome. Great atmosphere, lots of friendly people and smiling faces, delicious food, and really fun times at "rib night" on Wed and "steak night" on Sat with rake and scrape band and limbo. There is good food and fun at other places in Marsh Harbour, but I think this place is unique and the total experience is the best.
