“Veritable Jamaican food”

Judy's Island Grill I & II
Ranked #37 of 287 Restaurants in Glen Burnie
Price range: US$ 7 - US$ 39
Restaurant details
Reviewed 12 July 2017

Judy’s Island Grill offers some veritable Jamaican cooking to the discerning eater. This was noted in the proper preparation of the various dishes, especially the Jerk Chicken (sans the mild BBQ sauce though) which I am quite fussy about since I have had it in different establishments. But ultimately, it was the flavors of what I sampled that caught my tastebuds’ attention that I tasted in the Pineapple Ginger drink, the Beef Patty (wish they had a Calaloo Patty also), the delectable Escovitched Fish, and the sides dishes that took a formidable supporting role, notably the Rice and Peas, and Calalloo. The Rum Cake must be a good indicator of the rest of the cakes as they sit proudly in the counter waiting for someone’s attention. But you can sense the house’s pride and willingness to please the customer judging by my waiter’s attentiveness and his asking me for suggestions.

The music is too loud for a con ersation. The food is over cooked andover spiced. Meals are over priced. Not a child friendly location. Avoid.

Hubby and I are regulars. So much so that we have people at work ordering too. I'm from Jamaica, and when I need my fix.....I go to Judy's. I've not been disappointed yet. Sometimes some food items could use a little bit more seasoning. But nothing the veggie vinegar mix can't fix. I have to make it there for brunch one day. I heard it was amazing!

This is a decent place that has a nice menu and good food. They are not easy to manage with carry out orders, however (or may be they just do not like groupons). We had the same experience twice - once when we called in an order, and the next time when we came in to make the order directly in person. In both instances, it took an extraordinary amount of time - from 45 minutes to an hour. There does not appear to be particularly good communication either with customers or among staff.
