Reviewed 11 August 2014

It was nice to see a large scale jerk kitchen .......but the food wasn't all that great. Flavor wasn't bad but I have had jerk elsewhere many times, and this one needs more moisture retention.

“Jerk Chicken and pork”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

This place serves good jerk pork and chicken. It's not my favorite place to go jerk pork, but the hours and location are good. And the flavors are decent.

“Closest you can get to good local jerk”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Loved the atmosphere, the menu and the food. Its open late and the food is quite good, not the way I remember Jerk,but its unique in its own way. Not much to dislike. If you want Jamaican Jerk, do stop by Scotchies.
