We saw this place on a local restaurant show. We knew from the moment we saw the owner on the show that we had to try this place. I love jerk seasoned food. I had to go. The owner Chef Shrimpy made our delicious jerk combo plates and a burrito which you get to pick what you would like on... More

We ordered the chefs recommendation. The chicken. We also ordered ribs, shrimp, pork sandwich and everything was rocking! The sides were delicious and the sauce was the boss. We even took some home. I would highly suggest a visit if you want some authentic Jamaican in your mouth!

Great food, reminds me of Jamaica. Chef Shrimpy really brought a piece of Jamaica to the Cape. Simple but definitely a place to visit if you want good food

If you blink you might miss this small gem located in a strip mall. But Chef Shrimpy is bigger than life-his food and personality bring it to life. My husband ordered the jerk chicken dinner and I ordered the conch soup and shrimp dinner. Unfortunately the soup was unavailable, but the shrimp were cooked to perfection and with Chef Shrimpy's...

I've reviewed this spot before and have to write another glowing review after another great visit this week. If you are looking for a change of pace while visiting the Cape, stop in and see Chef Shrimpy. Service is fast and friendly and the food is simply delicious down home cooking. Our family of five each had the Jerk Chicken... More

The area with chairs and table is small. We took ours to go. The person who takes the orders and money is not friendly. she does... More

Having passed by this restaurant on our many visits to the Cape, we decided to give it try. It was excellent! The interior is rather small, with only a few tables for indoor dining, so we got our order to go. Our meat, chicken and pork, were both fork tender and tastefully marinated. A small cup of special hot sauce... More

We had lunch at this restaurant after reading reviews on TripAdvisor, we had previously visited last year but it had closed for that day,I love all things jerk and decided whenever we visited Yarmouth we would return.

This place doesn't look like much from the outside but the food is amazing!! The passion flowing from Chef for the food he prepares is evident from the moment you walk in. Try a taste of the Islands in a strip mall in Yarmouth. You will not be disappointed.

Really good Jamaican food (though I am no expert) . Prepared and served up by Chef Shrilly. The salad and sides just as good as the meat.
