“Good food....zero atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014

If you want a reasonably priced meal and don't care about ambiance, Chester's is for you. There is an extensive menu on the wall, but the only things they serve on any given day are on a dry erase board behind the counter on the left. We had a jerk chicken dinner there and breakfast of porridge (Cayman Islands oatmeal) on another visit. Both were very tasty, and considering I don't like oatmeal, the porridge was pretty darn good!!

“Disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

Chester's was enthusiastically recommend by the staff at the car rental desk. We were hungry and tired, pulled in the lot and saw two other cars. Once inside we saw what appeared to be a local leaned upon the counter thumbing through some CI bills, two female tourist looking customers whom appeared to be impatiently waiting to order. We looked over the menu and made our decisions and waited and waited and waited. After about 10 minutes we gave up and went further to the Lighthouse where we were promptly greeted and served. I suppose Chester's is on island time and we just weren't in the mood for it that day.

“Surprisingly good, great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

We stopped by and were unsure at first. No frills is an understatement! We had steamed grouper and bbq chicken. Came with sides of red beans and rice, plantain and steamed vegetables. The flavors were simple and authentic. It was a very healthy meal and so reasonable. Order a small and it is plenty. We did not dine on site but took it to go. Other locations have better views but this was a filling delicious island meal.

“Great meal for a great price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013

Stopped here on our way back from George Town to take a picture of the sign "buy one jerk, get one free". We decided to buy supper. All 5 of us had Cayman style Grouper and conch soup. Loved It!!! Just the right amount of spice, and the serving was huge. Would definitely eat here again.
