Delicious food. I had the jerk chicken sandwich and my husband had the goat curry. Both mouthwatering good. The bread pudding was out of this world. The service was great. Our server had a wonderful sense of humor. He made our day!

Very tasty and flavorful food! The ribs and the whole fried fish were delicious! The staff are friendly, attentive and made our visit very enjoyable. Excellent selection of hard-to-find beers from the Islands. We are so happy that we found this hidden gem!

The ambiance is comfortable, its a bistro setting where the Jamaican flavors are balanced and not overwhelmed by spice. The staff is good, the menu has all the island staples, I had ice tea and fried snapper.

Another wonderful dinner at Rocksteady! Coco bread, sampler, jerked chicken, brown stewed chicken, Salmon and Shrimp. We were full when we left but will be back for another meal before we heard back to Ohio. Great people and terrific food!

The jerk chicken is very tasty. We discovered this restaurant last year when visiting Boca. So we came back to this restaurant again this year. The place is small so make sure you go there early.
