I like the place and overall idea. Food was not very impressive, just ok, but will probably visit again.

Don't mind the understated decor... The food is extremely tasty. We arrived in the early afternoon mid week and so was not surprised that we had the entire place to ourselves. However, I must admit that I was apprehensive that speed and quality may have...been an issue given the lack of patrons but, happily, that did not turn out to be the case. My children had fun playing in the sand and by the sea while we waited for the food. The chef had a different take on escoveitched lobster and steamed bammy which is worth repeat visits. (Not for those who don't like spicy food, though). The fried chicken was crunchy and well seasoned. I highly recommend Seaside Dutchie.More

Great food, and service with easy access to well kept public beach with a private flare. Will definitely visit again and will share with others.

Simply stated, this place is a hidden secret. Great food, service and white sand beach. A public beach with a private beach flare. We will be going back for sure. Do check it out.

Worst Place To eat in JAMAICA Period. The food was Terrible, Undercooked, Cold and Took Forever to get it.. My Server was Horrible and did not care. The Manager was even worse- He does not care about customer service or satisfaction- He just wants to...rob you on your US currency exchange rate with a smirk on his face. DO NOT GO HERE by any means. There are tons of better restaurants in the area.More

It was horrible. Please do not go to this place. Waste of your money. Old dirty shack by the sea. Food took forever to be served. When it finally came the jerk pork my husband ordered they forgot to cook it. Everything was cold and...corned with salt. The server needs training she should not be working at the front of the house. HEART TRUST please. We complained to the manger he didn't care. The entire time we were expressing our disgust he had a smirk on his face. The only good part about that restaurant was the bartender. BE WARE DO NOT GO TO THAT DIRTY SHACK BY THE SEASMore

The food was awful and not much choice. Food was bland. We had a group of 6 and although acomplaint was made to the manager nothing was done. Would not recommmend this restaurant at all.

I went there with a group of 8 the bar was poorly stocked.the menu didnt have everything and to top it off this place was rat infested like rats were running in the dining room.the food normally was ok but this time the soup was...cold and the fish was raw. I'd advise people to stay away from this horrible place and other friends are complaining about the huge rats.. I'll be sure to spread word that unless you love rats stay away.and I also observed how the boss treated the staff like nothing I give zero as a rating..More

This restaurant is new sense my last visit to Jamaica. The food is made to order and very delicious. They have a private beach as well. We originally came for a beach front dinner but came back for lunch and the beach. Staff is friendly....Highly recommended!More

Hello They will be having a mothers day brunch along with live entertainment. If you party is going to be 6 or more I would make a reservation for sure. If you check out the instagram page it also has some info.
