We had a reservation 3 days prior and we were sat in the outside area on the coldest day of the year. It was at 4 pm before the dinner rush and would have liked a choice of the inside dining area. Other than that, we enjoyed our visit. Thank goodness the fire was going on the enclosed patio area.

The food their was horrible, our appetizer which was spinach artichoke and dip, the dip was cold, our chicken was under seasoned and cooked. Our server was excellent but the food was nasty. Never again

Great place, good prices on drinks and app's not overpriced, but consistent with other places. Meals were good, chicken was a bit over cooked but still good. Seating is one thing I'd be specific on. They have an enclosed outdoor area with gas logs and heaters---the night we went it was extremely cold for our area. Had I known they were using that outdoor'ish area in the winter, I would have specifically requested indoor seating. It was very cold out there despite the heaters running. On any other night above freezing it would have been fine, but I don't recommend that area if the temp is below 45...lol! Service was great and attentive, and hosts were friendly and accommodating, overall great experience, just #protip sit indoors! :-)

It was our anniversary, they weren't too busy but had to keep asking for utensils, napkins and too much was added to our bill when we went to pay, it was other charges on it, too frustrating having to use kiosk to order your drinks and appetizer. Food was good 👍

The food was overcooked. The Jerk wings had to be sent back.
The jerk chicken, black beans and rice was also over cooked. Edible, but not delicious.

Had a fun evening. Our first venture here. Service was great! We had Painkillers, Coconut Shrimp, and Firecracker Shrimp. Great! Was disappointed that my Jerk Chicken had little jerk flavor and was a bit overcooked. Still passable. Hubby had the rack of ribs and said although he couldn't taste quava he said they were great. Fun time, good food, and good vibe.

I enjoy the flavored jerk chicken and spinach dip both 1/2 price appetizers. My drink was a non acholic strawberry lemonade very tasty. This restaurant I must say is my favorite places for Happy hour.

was disappointed in the bar service. They do not stock any scotch and very little bourbon. Not everyone is interested in a foo foo drink with their meal.

Tamara was a fabulous server, she said she set the tone for the rest of our visit and she made it fabulous. Drinks were all delicious. Food was hot, flavorful, and quite honestly scrumptious. We can't wait to come back and try more of the menu.

The alcoholic drink menu is inventive and the drinks we had were delicious as well as cool looking. The food was good with very generous portions. The interior is bright and has a feel of the Bahamas. I would recommend for a fun place to have a meal.

We Arrived 10 minutes prior to reservation, when we arrived we were told it would just be a minute but did not get seated for 25 minutes. When we got to our table we could see it was a table for 4 that they pulled two extra chairs up to, there was not enough space so we asked to be moved to one of the open 6 top tables, the manager and host were annoyed and after discussing for a couple minutes said that would be fine. Our waitress was fantastic and on top of her game all night but one of our meals came out with chicken not shrimp so we had to wait for it to be remade, manager stopped by but again was annoyed with the issue. My son ordered the ribs which were fatty and tasteless. We did enjoy the coconut shrimp. Overall it’s a beautiful place but the management is not creating a good environment and the hosts seem to be significantly more concerned with chatting than guests.
