Drove 20 minutes to pick up a fish that I order and she sold it to her friend and told me fish finish. What kind of slackness is that? She showed no remorse and no apology given. On top of it all she had an attitude! Will not buy again from there and I will spread the word about Marcia's... More

We have been to a few of the Jerk restaurants and stands around the island and we think this is the best. The seasoning is dark and rich, spicy without going over board on the heat. Chicken and pork, reasonable prices. Good sides, rice and peas, salad and plantain. Fry bread too, but that wasn't great. They have nice picnic... More

We were delighted on our first night in Bodden Town. The fresh smoothies and desserts are not to be missed! Locals and tourists both love this place.

Decided to stop here to eat from visiting Rum Point. Did not disappoint. Their jerk chicken was delicious. So much so that my toddler literally sat quietly and ate a lot of it. We ordered the mango shake and it was so good, we ordered more to go. Would definitely be the first stop if ever I go back to... More

If you are on island and staying in an Eastern district and enjoy Caribbean food like jerk chicken etc try Rankin's Jerk. Awesome fried chicken meal, reasonably priced. Tasty and delicious. Their produce is locally produce, best tasting fresh meats

Grant lunch location. We had the Jerk Chicken and Fried Fish. Both were great. There was a warning that the fish would take extra time and it did.

For a casual takeout dinner, I ordered the jerk chicken with cole slaw, mac 'n cheese and rice and beans. The chicken was flavorful with a side of wickedly-hot jerk sauce. The cole slaw was dry but fresh. The macaroni and cheese was prepared as a small congealed slab with okay flavor. I liked their non-greasy, mildly-seasoned version of red... More
