Staff are friendly and on the spot. Food was good and lunch prices not bad. Average $10 a person. Tried jerk chicken. It was nice and spicey. Tried coconut shrimp. Wasn't from a box! Fresh! Not sure what the salty sauce was.

The waitresses were very nice and friendly. I always enjoy their fried plantains and good ole jerk chicken! I also tried the 2 meat meal with jerk chicken and fish...and the fish was the bomb too...I wanna go there everyday.

The meal was served in a nice atmosphere and tasted as authentic as could be expected. While jerk was not prepared on a grill, the food was tasty.

I had Sunday brunch at the Dallas location and it was great. Atmosphere was nice, food was flavorful, and the service was magnificent. We had the jerk shrimp and grits, Oxtails with cabbage and rice and beans, beef patties, and unlimited mimosas.

This place is the real deal. Authentic Jamaican quisine. Whole steamed snapper reminded me of the island. The patties were good. Looked a bit different but the taste was right on. Appletons and coke...taste like home to me. Oxtail and jerk. The rice and peas were perfect. The price is good. Well worth your time. The pictures look like windows... More

Went to the NEW location in Bishop District near downtown Dallas for a tasting and wow! The flavors and the quantity of the servings were impressive. The service was friendly and attentive. You will truly experience the island hospitality and flavor with their rum bar and specialty drinks.

This place is awesome! It's a little gem tucked away in a strip center. We drove from Plano and our friend came from Keller and it was worth the drive. First- let me talk about Siddie! She was very friendly, accommodating and had a smile on her face. Since it was our first time there, she helped us with suggestions... More

Island life is far superior to regular life partly because of the laid-back attitudes, and partly because of fried plantain. Leave your crazy schedule at home and sit back to enjoy a Jamaican-inspired meal at The Island Spot, a delightful lunch or dinner destination serving up exotically spiced tropical treats.

The enticing menu includes vacation staples such as Jerk Chicken (served with two sides), Signature BBQ Ribs, succulent Curry Shrimp, and so much more. Take a break from ho-hum winter blues and spice up your lunch or dinner at this oasis in the city.
