What People are Saying

  • Friendly wait staff and bartender. Everyone is in a great mood and easy going. Great jams playing, pool table, a poker game in another room. Seems like lots of regulars hanging out enjoying the company. The food is fresh and soooo delicious! Another reviewer mentioned that it took them back to their Jamaican trip and I have to agree 100%. You will not be disappointed in your portion size or taste. Large selection of import beer and IPA's, many on tap. Overall it's a nice place to grab lunch or dinner, a takeout, or have it delivered!
