Stopped by to grab a beer to cool down and ended up getting some jerk chicken (on the bone, not chopped) and coconut shrimp and also purchased a jar of "sauce" that was absolutely wonderful! Staff was very helpful in choosing foods. Really good!

We stopped here for lunch on our way back to our cruise ship. The service was very slow and had us worried about missing our ride. The food was actually very good though. I had the jerk chicken wings and they were amazing.

The Prices were about 10-15 per entree. It's a very very casual atmosphere just be prepared for no frills and no fuss.
