Been there a couple of times and loved it! Very small place in strip mall. Don't go if you are in a super hurry, but the wait is worth it ! You can tell they make their food fresh and enjoy what they're doing.The wait...More

I wouldn't know what the food here tastes like. This place is supposed to be open at noon. My wife and I have been waiting, and now it's 12:35, and they're still not open, although we can see the staff inside. Island time, apparently.

It is a rare treat to luck into such an awesome restaurant! The food was sooooo flavorful and fresh! Portions were generous (we had enough for another dinner the next day) and prices were reasonable. Everything was excellent, we will be back!

My husband and I went to De Palm Tree in December for lunch. We really enjoyed the beef paddies and loved the jerk chicken. We know our jerk cause we make our own at home from scratch! Can't wait to return next time with friends.

This is a tiny yet fun place for Jamaican food. Music on the weekends. Yummy food but not a place to go if you are on a diet. Large portions.

My husband & I had just arrived in St. Louis from New York & we stopped here on the way to the hotel. I must say the restaurant is small, but very comfortable. You definitely get the feel like you were in the Caribbean. Anyway...More
