Visited on a Friday night. The live music playing was really good. The place was packed. The sign "wait to be seated" translates to "soon come" Jamaican style. Took a little effort and patience to get seated ( we almost left) but in the end...More

If you like spicy, then you'll love the jerk chicken! The food here is very good. I definitely recommend the chicken or the curry goat.

I love the spinach. Beans and rice are great. Generally I am not a fan of chicken with bones - but this is worth the effort. Nice level of spice / kick to it. Grilled spot-on. Quick lunch spot.

Stopped in a late on weekday afternoon to get some curry goat and was not disappointed. A few more bones than I would like, but still plenty of meat. I will return.

Staff are friendly and on the spot. Food was good and lunch prices not bad. Average $10 a person. Tried jerk chicken. It was nice and spicey. Tried coconut shrimp. Wasn't from a box! Fresh! Not sure what the salty sauce was.

The waitresses were very nice and friendly. I always enjoy their fried plantains and good ole jerk chicken! I also tried the 2 meat meal with jerk chicken and fish...and the fish was the bomb too...I wanna go there everyday.

Description
Island life is far superior to regular life partly because of the laid-back attitudes, and partly because of fried plantain. Leave your crazy schedule at home and sit back to enjoy a Jamaican-inspired meal at The Island Spot, a delightful lunch or dinner destination serving up exotically spiced tropical treats. The enticing menu includes vacation staples such as Jerk Chicken (served with two sides), Signature BBQ Ribs, succulent Curry Shrimp, and so much more. Take a break from ho-hum winter blues and spice up your lunch or dinner at this oasis in the city.
