This place has great food and never seems to be busy. The ribs are my favorite, but I've never ordered anything I didn't like! Never had a problem with the service either.

My recent experience with Soul Mountain was the same as it has been for years. Well-spiced Caribbean cuisine, warm service and a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Plus - the cornbread is to die for! Love this place.
