THE FOOD: Dunns River Lounge offers authentic Jamaican cuisine for over 17 years in a casually elegant & intimate setting on Long Island. Our menu, prepared by Chef Bobby and his crew, features traditional dishes like Jerk Chicken, Braised Oxtails, Curried Goat and Jerk Salmon as well as creative daily specials like Jerk BBQ Ribs, Jerk Lobster Pasta & Codfish Fritters with Guacamole.

THE COCKTAILS: We are foodies, but we're equally known for our tropical hand-crafted cocktails made with premium liquor and fresh ingredients.

THE VIBE: Whether you dine with us indoors or on our outdoor patio during the summer months, you'll feel like you are in Jamaica. Enjoy weekly live entertainment with the sounds of reggae, soca & r&b. We're great for everything from small dinners for two to large family-style celebrations for 20 guests or more!

AND YOU: When you come to Dunns River you will feel like family. As we always say, "the only thing we love more than good food and drinks is You! "

    It was ok. It was really dark so couldn’t see what we were eating because they served us on a black plate. In addition, one of us found a plastic piece in our oxtail meal. The server explained that it was accident with the food prep. But in a dismissive way as if that is common. Didn’t offer to comp meal. However, said we can get complimentary desert, however, there wasn’t a lot of options on the menu. Resulted in just saying “well bring something you do have”.

    The menu was very well priced. I had the peppered shrimp as an app and the stew chicken as an entree. Everything was absolutely delicious! Only issue I had was that it was IMPOSSIBLE to speak with anyone at your table because it was so loud. But eventually we gave in to the music and stopped talking anyway. This could just be that it was a Friday night. Not sure if it is as loud during the week.

    I’ve visited this restaurant a few time times and honestly can’t believe how horrible the service is. Literally mind blowing on every visit, however, I won’t return. The food was descent (not authentic), the music was loud but good music playing (could have been lower and still enjoyable), server was awful (late, and disorganized), just wondering when will they step up to their potential.

    Very limited bar. According to the server, they can only make the few drinks in the menu. The food was ok, but did not taste like authentic jamaican food. Service was really slow and only 3 tables had people seated.

    Our experience was outstanding. The restaurant is clean and quiet. The food is incredible and authentic in flavor. I highly recommend the combo dish of Curry Goat and Oxtail with rice and peas and plantains. Appetizer of Calaloo and Salt Fish. As well as the Pepper Shrimp and Jerk Chicken. We will be back and tell our friends to go.
