I try to make it to Pewee's every time I get to Jamaica. He has a beautiful ocean view and he has awesome breakfasts!

We went for breakfast. The coffee was very good. My husband had a toasted bacon and tomato sandwich. He said it was great. I had a cheese omelette and it was very good. Don't forget that in Negril they don't butter the toast. No big deal.

If you've never been to Negril, this is NOT Rick's. Go there first, spend a bunch of money in a crowded space. But, if you have figured out Negril, and came back...Go to Pewees. As most places in Negril, there are no "set hours". You may walk up and see people just hanging out. Ask them when you can have... More

I apologize for the terrible service. I wish I was there to greet you that day. We are open for Breakfast and Dinner, though the slow season has started early. I hope that you are still on island and I can redeem your visit here personally. Ask for Perrell, at your service. Thank You More

The first time I visited Peewee was 1992. I was 28 and it was my first time. Peewee was still alive and he was a gracious host. He is deceased but we still visit his bar/restaurant when we go to the west end. It is the first look at the cliffs you will see when heading to that area. Good... More

Good place for breakfast. My fave: cheese omelet. Good strong coffee. Pewee's is not fancy, but good value.

Looking for a cold red stripe & Cliffside view? Don't miss this place - still excellent for cold drinks, local & traveler chat, & a gorgeous cliffs/sunset view. Pewee's was one of our first stops 5 trips ago and remains as one of our favorites! Sadly, we missed having an Elvis breakfast this year, but next time for sure. He... More

If you have lots of time take some cards or drawing materials and go to Pewee's for breakfast. The view here is exceptional. Go well before you are hungry, this place takes a long time.

Elvis is a nice guy, and was this morning running it himself. Great view and nice host; just sorry to see it so slow in negril these days. Great value. I'll be back.

What could be cooler than a tiki hut on the cliffs? I've been here numerous times just to feel the cool breeze and have some rum punch. Sometimes when I come, local kids will cliff dive for tips. This is one of my favorite places in Negril.

Stop on by for one of our signature Rum Punches, It only takes two! And don't miss our annual February 8th Birthday Bash, A celebration of the Legend that is Pewee Dawkins. Family owned and operated. This place is real Jamaica.
