We ordered the jerk chicken.
It was overcooked and dry, we could not taste the jerk. Also, there was too much black pepper on the meat, on the veggies and on the rice and beans.

We spent 6 days in Hopkins recently and ate here 3 times. Apparently the restaurants throughout Hopkins had no seafood available due to rough water (or the upcoming Easter holiday) so menu choices were limited. Best meal in the town under these circumstances was the jerk chicken here at Geckos. Get the fries as a side dish as these were fresh and perfectly cooked each time we tries them. Service was good too even though the restaurant was full by 7PM.

Do yourself a favor and make sure you try the pork chop! You can even call ahead to reserve one to make sure they don't run out. They are massive and incredibly delicious! We also enjoyed the Geckos ball (Rice balls with a delicious sauce) and drinks. The owners, Tina and James, are super friendly and it's a fun atmosphere right in town. Definitely worth stopping by for a meal.

Excellent food and service. We enjoy the outdoor dining experience here. The food and drinks were delicious and delivered in good time in spite of a small kitchen fire that sent the servers running outside. They handled the incident well with no affect to their patrons.
Our Jamaican Jerk chicken was delicious. We had to try the gecko balls because of the name, and because we like rice balls. Service was very friendly and efficient.
Our friends and I will definitely return!

I can’t attest to how good the food was because I only came in for drinks, but my friends got the veggie tacos and they looked delicious! James, the owner/bartender, was amazing! Very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Ask him to tell you a few jokes... ;)

I would definitely recommend going in and having a snack and a drink sitting at the bar.
