“Delicious & Generous”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013

We visited Doctors Cave twice and on the second visit we were starving. A waiter came over to our chairs offering us menus for lunch. We began with some tasty fruit drinks and ordered food but decided to walk over to the outside tables to get a little shade while eating. Our 6 year old ordered the burger with nothing on it. It arrived and was enormous but had everything on it so we reordered. The owner came over to apologize and said they were making a fresh one. When it arrived it too was enormous. The four of us all ate some of it and still we left some. For $10 it was a great choice. It was cooked correctly (MR) and could have been split between two people. I had a lovely fresh and tasty salad. Our 8 year old had tenderloin sliders and he loved them. They ran about $15 and I think the $10 burger was probably better. Both came with fries. The four meals and tip ran about $65 which was reasonable for delicious and generous helpings with great service and a caring owner.

“Big Let Down”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013 via mobile

We were brought here as part of our cruise tour. We were greeted nicely and seated quickly. Our table had a great deal of ants, which I sprayed with OFF. The waiter suggested the jerk platter because we could share and it had two sides. When our food arrived, there was no shrimp. After we asked, we were told that they were out of shrimp. The food was decent. The service was terrible. They took our ketchup bottle three times to give them to other tables. They refilled my soda but didn't say it wasn't free. Our bill showed that we were charged for two sodas and $5 for each side! It was way overpriced & not worth it! We tried to address the bill but got no help. I would never return here and don't recommend it!

“Fantastic location, staff & service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2013

I am at a loss why this restaurant has scored so low on this list. It is an absolutely wonderful location with a 'chill' laid back Caribbean vibe. None of the overbearing noise and touristy corniness of similar beach venues.

My husband was happy that the bar had flat screen tv's so he could catch up on his soccer games!

The food was great as well and the bar, well Everol our bartender took great care of us and Glen was very accomodating.

Definitely a place we'll visit on our next trip and will tell all our friends as well!
