On a trip to Cayman Brac in March, we stopped by Barry's en route home from dinner out elsewhere to check it out for a future meal. We spent an enjoyable few minutes chatting with Barry and his cook, as well as a fellow diner who were sitting outside. Barry insisted on giving us a sample of both the chicken... More

When visiting Cayman Brac you have to try Barry's Jamaican Style Jerk chicken. It comes with fresh sweet bread to dip in the sauce. Traditionally they chop the chicken in smaller pieces with a machete so it's easier to eat but you ask not to. Nice cheap meal and very tasty. They do it on Wednesday to Saturday evening and...

On our 3rd visit to Cayman Brac, we finally managed to stop by this delightful local take-out "shack". They were only open eves Wed, Fri, & Sat eves, 4-? (When all is gone?) during our visit, which is why we've missed it previously - poor planning on our part. ;). If you enjoy smoked chicken with a yummy little kick... More

Went on a Wednesday and picked up two orders which is roughly half a chicken per order. Each order was CI$10 (about US$12.50). There's really nowhere to sit there so we took it home and ate while watching the sun set. Chicken was definitely flavorful and worth the experience. The sauce has some kick. They guys were very friendly and... More

Best chicken EVER! We loved it! Thanks, Barry! We got chicken from Barry's and sides from the grocery store deli and went to the beach for a picnic.

Barry's Golden Jerk has limited offerings,takeout only, but what they offer is very good: chicken and pork, marinated and grilled, served with a wonderfully flavorful,not too hot sauce and locally baked bread. We spent a week on the Brac, tried Barry's twice. We missed talking to Barry-- but Ian filled in admirably. He was very friendly and helpful.

This is a must if you are on Cayman Brac. My wife and I had the chicken and pork and went back the next day it was so good. Barry is super friendly and the jerk is outstanding but not too hot. Open Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. This is a roadside shack near the airport and take out only but... More

After all the good reviews, I had to try this place. It did not disappoint, chicken wise. I would have liked to be able to get a side like rice or potatoes though. I think they only had bread. It's only open on some days of the week, so if you are only staying fora week, you may need to... More

I tried this place because of how unique it is and is the first dining establishment one sees when leaving the airport. This is a carry-out only restaurant offering chicken, pork, and fish. Each order contains a hearty portion of meat, bread, and a delicious spicy sauce. Perfect with a cold beer. The chap who runs the place is very... More

This is hands down the best food on the island. The young man that owns is very nice, it's a local favorite. If you go to Cayman Brac and you don't eat here, you're missing out on an incredible experience. When you pull up there will most likely be some local men sitting out front, on weekdays he opens for... More

This is a stand attached to Edd's Place that sells freshly prepared Jerk chicken and pork. It is only available on the weekends. The nice lady at the department of tourism told us about it. She sid that the locals go crazy for it.
