I love Jamaica, the food, drinks, and the people. This is why I got the Jerk Chicken Wings, Kingston Trio, and Jamaican Rum Cake. It was real, authentic Jamaican cuisine. I will be back very nice restaurant.

This is my first time visiting this wonderful establishment. They had live music that was awesome. I had to jerk chicken and it was the most moist ever. I will definitely be coming back to this place in the near future.

We always get the Groupon here. We are never disappointed in the food! Even without the Groupon, I believe the value is still there.
