We were staying at the TurtleNest Inn in Bodden town and had been out all day & really didn't feel like going out to dinner. Rankin's was suggested by the proprietor at TNI and since it was just 5 mins down the road we stopped by. I had heard the portions were generous, so my husband & I split a... More

After work stopped to get some Jerk but ended up curried goat which was very flavorful but had more bones than meat. The curried goat came with salad, a bite of mac and cheese, and plenty of red beans and rice. My friend got the jerk chicken and said it wasn't that great. Now the mango drink was absolutely great...

Very good jerk pork and chicken. Could have used some sides (but perhaps we missed this when ordering). We got large orders of both and had them for dinner and lunch the next day

The jerk chicken and jerk pork were fantastic! Two people could have shared one order. They give you a lot of food.

We ate at a few Jerk Chicken spots while on vacation and this was by far the most delicious. The sauce is amazing.

What a great place to get the local flare. Had the jerk chicken only about $10 US. Comes with red beans and rice, cornbread, and slaw. So good! Only complaint was one of the staff members was unpleasant to say the least.

We tried the chicken one night; good taste and large serving is OK for two if you had some sides to go with it. This is good for take away.

Drove 20 minutes to pick up a fish that I order and she sold it to her friend and told me fish finish. What kind of slackness is that? She showed no remorse and no apology given. On top of it all she had an attitude! Will not buy again from there and I will spread the word about Marcia's... More

We have been to a few of the Jerk restaurants and stands around the island and we think this is the best. The seasoning is dark and rich, spicy without going over board on the heat. Chicken and pork, reasonable prices. Good sides, rice and peas, salad and plantain. Fry bread too, but that wasn't great. They have nice picnic... More
