The venue is really cool, and the bar staff pretty nice. It's unfortunate the place has to shut down at midnight as it's in a residential zone none the less pretty cool vibe.

Queenies had this funky, tacky vibe in their decoration which is pretty cool. It serves wonderful Caribbean food, everything on the menu is just so delicious. Jerk chicken is a must try with dirty rice and sweet potato fries. The best bonafee pie ever, must...More

Dined at Queenies on a Saturday. Entrance is through the busy & buzzy Forresters Hotel and up two flights of stairs. We liked the attempt to create some sort of Caribbean decor with low lighting and music to suit, though the music was too loud...More
