Looked at the menu, and finally decided on Oxtails....we weren't really sure when we ordered the dinner, BUT we were very satisfied, and pleasantly surprised by the flavor of the dish. Would order it again. The... More

Great food, great music, local and very friendly crowd. Of course the owner is a separate story. He is the greatest guy ever. Smart and funny. We ended up going out together after closing and he even gave us a ride to our hotel.

We stopped in after hearing reggae music welcoming us. We ordered just 2 beers and 2 beef patties as we only wanted a light snack. There was a full menu with all of the Jamaican staples. However, they did not have any Red Stripe beer. The service is nice, from the waitress to the host who greets you at the... More
