We made reservations for both the Wednesday night ribs and Saturday night steaks. Be sure to do the same, as there are a limited amount each night. Both meals were excellent. The owners and staff were very friendly and accommodating. Service behind the bar and overall was prompt and courteous. They really take care of their marina and restaurant guests. We kept going back for more.

Great food and drinks. It's a must to get there way before dinner time to get a good table and enjoy the bar. Make sure to order a bilge burner. A local favorite.

The Jib Room is a little restaurant/bar attached to a marina. While they appear to have a menu, their specialty is Wednesday night ribs and Sunday night steak.

They only prepare 100 meals, so you must phone ahead to reserve a spot and then show up in time to pay the $25 and find a seat indoors. We had locals make our "reservations".

This is worth it on many levels. First, the experience. Seating is picnic benches and tables and regular patio tables with resin chairs inside and picnic tables with benches outside. Some of the outdoor seating is covered. Second, there is enough food here for this meal and if you are not a big eater, you will have a second meal to take home in the containers they provide. Third, you will rub shoulders with some interesting people. While in line, I was complimented on my nearly invisible hearing aids by a very lovely woman from one of the large yachts. And then there is the Limbo Man. He is there Wednesdays and Saturdays. Wow!

We went on a Saturday night, with both of us having steak. The steak was cooked exactly how we like it, with a nice amount of vegetables, side salad and baked potato.

All in all I would definitely recommend this as a place to eat for anyone visiting marsh harbour. They even offered a vegetarian option for my dad, which in the end we didn't take up but it was nice that this could have been accommodated.

It closed a little earlier than we would have liked, but this did not take away from the experience at all as reflected in the rating. All in all an excellent night out!

after a slightly surreal experience trying to book ("we don't take reservations but what would you like to order fish or ribs " ) we joined the locals who were out in force for this communal style buffet based evening. The food was unexpectedly good and after being at mostly empty restaurants around Marsh Harbour I can see why this was packed out. Not open all the time so check....go with low expectations and you might be pleasantly suprrised
