We recently ate there for dinner with a group of about 20 friends. The service was very good and the food was great. They serve Jerk Chicken, Gumbo and numerous other great dishes. This grill has been around for a number of years and has grown from a tiny hole in the wall place to a terrific restaurant. It is... More

Menu is moderately priced, but I have never been impressed with the food. Jerk chicken and pork were sub-par last time we ate it. Chicken looked and tasted like it had been under a warmer all day long. Chicken fried stead is below average. As a positive, the burrito is pretty good. The place is authentic, the owner is authentic,... More

They have unique specials and the food is very well prepared. I forget about this place but it's worth going out-of-the-way to try.

I generally don't eat meat so when I do, I want it to be good. The ribs and brisket were fabulous ... juicy, succulent, and grilled to perfection. Great bbq sauces.

I have been going here for special occasions since this place opened. The food is always good and when I take new people they are always impressed. Highly recommend it. Just have a sober driver if you intend on drinking. Ha ha

Great spot to dine to escape the midwest. Outdoor dining and interior decor take you to the Caribbean! Food in my opinion is average but the rum punch and ambience make up for what the menu lacks. Often live music on Friday or Saturday nights

Caribbean fare with a Midwestern touch. Food was good. Service left a bit to be desired tonight. Two meals late without much notice, a few details on orders wrong. For a group of 8 a twenty percent added gratuity was pushing it tonight.

We each had a different plate and they were all delicious. We split two dessert and they were fantastic. Jamaican inspired food with a twist of Americana.
