  • Rodney's Jamaican Grill is a funky bar and Restaurant. I ate both lunch and dinner there and the food was excellent. Really authentic Jamaican food. We had a great time watching the Rams get whipped by the Buccaneers while also watching the local "Wildlife" enjoying the game.

  • I ordered the jerk chicken alfredo. The food was absolutely amazing and so was the service. Their portion sizes a very large expect to wrap it up to go if you're dining in.
