I stopped by Jerk Hut during my lunch break for some chicken and yellow rice. The food was absolutely delicious! It was seasoned very well. The restaurant provided a good size portion for the price. The service was fast and friendly. Highly recommended!

At lunch they have a buffet which had a little bit of everything that is offered on the menu. At first I was just going to order my favorite dish, Curry Goat. The hostess informed me that... More

Did some Brewery hopping that evening and stopped to grab some food. Wasn't too busy. The food was quite tasty and served piping hot. Washed it all down with an ice cold Red Stripe.

The food here was good but it wasn't great. We tried the stew chicken and jerk chicken. My stew chicken was greasy. The Jerk chicken was better. Could have been better

This restaurant is owned by Andrew Ashmeade who hails from Jamaica, and the food, especially jerk chicken, is AMAZING!
