We ate here with a group of friends Dec 17, 2014. Amazing lobster - simple and so fresh. Just had lobster at a 5 star resort and it didn't come close. We were in a bit of a rush compared to the rest of the group (appt back in Montego Bay) and the Fireman was more than accommodating with our... More

We went to Fireman's lobster pit while at Sandals Negril. I'm so glad we did! It was by far the best crab and lobster that my husband and I have ever had! The crab was huge and to die for! He made us feel right at home while serving his delicious creations with beautiful presentation. I will definitely go again... More

They took us into the country side to see waterfalls and the natural beauty of Jamaica in nearby orange bay. If you are in Negril you must go see the fireman!!... More

We ate here last week and the lobster (and the experience) was awesome. First we were able to pick our own lobsters and then watch him prepare them as well. Not only was the lobster awesome, so was the service - everyone was very friendly - and very reasonably priced. We will definitely go back!!

All of our meals are expertly prepared upon request with the freshest seafood, chicken, fruits and vegetables available. We invite you to sit back and relax and enjoy our hospitality and authentic Jamaican cuisine!

Welcome the morning by sipping Jamaican coffee enjoying the seaside view while waiting to experience one of our Jamaican breakfast specialty items. Enjoy our view of the crystal clear turquoise waters dotted with all kinds of boats, parasails soaring in the air, and couples leisurely strolling along the water's edge.


Our friendly bartenders will prepare a delicious tropical drink for you to enjoy while you gaze across the sparkling Caribbean, watch one of our spectacular sunsets, feel the warm tropical breezes blow and enjoy the sound of the peep frogs as they welcome the oncoming night.
