I ordered the Flat Iron Jerk Steak. The flavor of the dry rub was excellent. The steak was properly prepared and topped with a nice pepper sauce. For sides I ordered the Caribbean grilled vegetables and the mac & cheese. The vegetables had a delicious...More

Had a first visit here some time ago for a friend's B'day party. Food was served buffet style and was quite tasty, but nothing truly special. So many choices in the area to compete with Smalley's.

This food was decent. We ordered the fried tomatoes and fried conch for appetizers. Neither was particularly good. I could not taste the tartness of the green tomatoes and there was barely any conch in the fritters. The breading on both was too much. My...More

The food here is amazing! I definitely recommend this be one of your stops if your visiting Stillwater! They get busy and don't take reservations. However, you are able to call ahead within an hour and they put you on a list.

The food is good, but the menu has changed and is hard to read, last time there there was a lot of fat on the coal roasted pork shoulder-there should be some, but not thick chunks. They brew their own ginger beer, which is fantastic!...More

My boyfriend and I had seen this place on Triple D. We were super excited. We ordered chicken wings (BBQ & Jerk) as well as a Their BBQ trio of chicken, shrimp, & ribs. It was all terrible. We didn't like anything we had. All...More

My wife and I went there on a date without the kids, so I didn't really pay attention. Due to the pirate theme, I would be willing to bet that they do. I do recall seeing other families with children when we were there. I'm... More
