If you are in the area, definitely consider stopping in for breakfast! Ask for the special hot sauce to add spice to your breakfast burritto and eggs. Marty will tell you all about the history of the area.

We always come here when we are in town and we highly recommend Jen's cafe! Jen is always in the kitchen cooking something delicious. Party Marty is the sweetest guy who knows his history and he'll help you out in the dining room. Good food. good people.

Had a great lunch at Jen's today. I had the blackened fish sandwich with fries. The fish was hot and cooked just right. Their potato wedge fries were really good too. If you live cocktails then their Painkiller is excellent. They also have a nice selection of local beers.

Local food with coupled with American food. The crab cakes are to die for! The conch fritters are good but not as amazing as the crab cakes. Pins Colada chicken was just OK. And I discovered that plantains aren't my favorite Mahi mahi is excellent. Conch was good too!

Here is a great little place that was recommended by a local. Inside and outside seating, we chose inside as it was very warm. Local beer and conch fritters were excellent. Fast service, we actually sat a the bar and many locals were in and out as they have a take-away area as well. Check it out!

Stopped in for the fritters....found them to expensive and mostly filler. Kind of disappointing. The beer was also a little pricey compared to other restaurants we visited. We do however like the outside space.

Visited with the family and had the fresh snapper prepared as suggested. The fish was FANTASTIC. Plantains were delicious and the service was great. Only reason I didn't rate 5 stars was because I thought the conch fritters were comprised of too much filler and barely any conch. But overall a great place to visit. BTW, their house made hot...

My husband & I shared a Jamaican Jerk Wrap with Fries on a very hot day of shopping in St Thomas. The heat of the both the wrap and fries was just right... not too much or too little. The beer was nice and cold and not over priced. There was an 18% service charge automatically added to our bill... More

Stopped by the restaurant to check it out and had the pleasure of meeting Marty the bartender. Knew then that I had to go back to eat and drink. Coconut Shrimp were excellent. This is just a fun place to hang out; one of our favorites in St. Thomas.
