We chose Smalley's as we are fans of DIners, Drive-Ins and Dives on the Food Network. We had the jerk tacos, the jerk chicken sandwich and the fried clam poboy. The poboy was good, the jerk chicked better than good but not great and the tacos disappointing. The tacos were bland...how does that happen? None of the sides were particularly memorable although all were good, particularly the coleslaw with horseradish. The atmosphere was loud and fun, our waitress was ok but not very attentive. I would go back as it was fine, but I really expected more based on the show and many of the other reviews.

We were recommended to go here by the b&b that we stayed at. We shared the pulled beef, which had a good amount of spice for me without the sauces. Everything comes with a kick, including the house made root beer. This is a must-see dive for all ages, with plenty of options for the adventurous eater.

Visited here for a dinner with friends one evening. It was a bit late and raining so there wasn't a problem getting seats. Had a jerk chicken sandwich which was pretty good. Thought the sides were a bit bland - needed some salt at least. Service was so so. At check out, I did notice the waitress had her phone out while she was processing our payments. Am hopeful she was texting and not getting numbers from our cards. The location around the restaurant is beautiful - would recommend a visit just to walk around and see neighboring shops and sights.

With all of the great reviews on here, we thought this would be the place to eat! Admittedly, the rum list is incredible, so if rum is what you are looking for, then you've found the right place. Other than that, the food was average tasting at best. The outdoor seating is a joke, unless you just want to be outside with no view except for the parking lot, garbage area, and a giant silver building. However, our waitress was excellent, and displayed the coolest tattoo ever on her thigh. Overall, not a good experience though with spending our hard-earned money.

Smalley's has an amazing selection of rums; if you like Cheery Coke, try the Kilo Kai Rum with coke; it's tasty! The meals are flavorful and the service was good.
