I had not been to this place for ca. 10 years. But since then, the entire structure has been renovated and redecorated. Very nice and tasteful, and nowadays very family friendly. I had the butterfly shrimp and they were perfect, as was the poached catfish (the special of the day) that my wife enjoyed. The adult drinks are great, the... More

This is a great place to have a business social event. We had a group of 16, there was a private space, priced perfect for all, food was excellent, on time, and more than we could eat. Thanks!

Friendly, small-town atmosphere with great food and entertainment at a very reasonable price. No surprise it is a favorite of the locals! Highly recommended.

We recently ate there for dinner with a group of about 20 friends. The service was very good and the food was great. They serve Jerk Chicken, Gumbo and numerous other great dishes. This grill has been around for a number of years and has grown from a tiny hole in the wall place to a terrific restaurant. It is... More

Menu is moderately priced, but I have never been impressed with the food. Jerk chicken and pork were sub-par last time we ate it. Chicken looked and tasted like it had been under a warmer all day long. Chicken fried stead is below average. As a positive, the burrito is pretty good. The place is authentic, the owner is authentic,... More

They have unique specials and the food is very well prepared. I forget about this place but it's worth going out-of-the-way to try.

I generally don't eat meat so when I do, I want it to be good. The ribs and brisket were fabulous ... juicy, succulent, and grilled to perfection. Great bbq sauces. The salad was so-so but the house dressing was very good. We're definitely going back even though this restaurant is an hour from our house. Still want to sample... More

I have been going here for special occasions since this place opened. The food is always good and when I take new people they are always impressed. Highly recommend it. Just have a sober driver if you intend on drinking. Ha ha

Great spot to dine to escape the midwest. Outdoor dining and interior decor take you to the Caribbean! Food in my opinion is average but the rum punch and ambience make up for what the menu lacks. Often live music on Friday or Saturday nights
