Also would like to know if there are printed menu's to view. Does JRB serve lobster like Jewel Dunn;s River had on their fine dining menu.

Just to let you know that lobster hunting is closed from April 1 to June 30. Lobster that is on hand on April 1 must be declared to the government and can be served until April 21. After that date, no lobster can be "on hand" in any form.

Historically, Negril has a huge public party on July 1 but I am not familiar with such events on the North Coast.

Perhaps these dates coincide with your vacation; if so, set your expectations to fit the Jamaican law.

There is something to eat just about round the clock. If not the buffet, italian, japanese, or pizza restuarant then the beach grille will be open near round the clock for burgers, jerk, wraps, etc.

If you are looking for lobster and don't find it at Jewel. Take a trip into Ocho Rio and check out Lobster Daves at fishermans beach. Dave have lobster year round ;-)

Thanks Coco for the info...don't really want to eat lobster...trying to get away from them for a bit...was happy to hear about the venues hours...seems like it is just about all covered.

Shame on Daves, serving lobster year around is illegal.

especially when it is detrimental to the economy, the tourist trade, the fishing industry and the sense of good citizenship.
