Takes a while for service but the seafood platter for 2 was worth the wait. Ate outside so we could people watch which is always fun.

We wanted a jerk chicken experience and we had one. The dish was very delicious. The chicken was mildly spicy and well prepared.

Great food! We tried the seafood platter- good for 2 person. Pretty much every seafood you want, including lobster & conch fritters. The dinner comes with 2sides & 3 slices of johnny cake. Yum!

The conch was crispy, the mac n cheese extremely cheesy and cole slaw sweet and tart as it should be. My daughter ordered the grilled grouper with plantains and rice n peas. All perfectly prepared. Although both entrees were... More

Had a great dinner here. Fried conch was delicious and not overcooked. Hearty portion for the price. Standard sides of fries and rice & beans did not disappoint.
