Drinks are good but pricey. Jerk chicken was so dry. Staff was friendly. Lots of opportunities to purchase things to smoke in the area, the sellers were obnoxious.

Always a great place to relax, the staff are fantastic, the jerk chicken burns your lips and the Red Stripe is icy cold.

The service was very friendly. The burgers and fries were really good, as were the (numerous) cold Red Stripe beers on tap. The party atmosphere was kicked up a notch as a busload of people were delivered while I was going down the waterslide. Great...More
