We visited this place which was pretty good but I thought it was going to be better. We had good service . We wanted to get because the guy from the tv show had visited the restaurant which my kids thought was pretty cool. The owner was very sweet !

After hearing about how great this restaurant was from numerous friends, I decided to try it out. Last night, my boyfriend and I arrived at 1005pm. We walked in and saw it was pretty crowded, to be expected for a Sat night, cool. The hostess came, cleaned off a table and sat us. We watched as waiter after waiter walked... More

Food is tasty, good service, make sure you ask if a dish is spicy or not. I got the Fried Fish with spiced pickled Onions and carrots which was really spicy. Serving size is generous. They have 9 dollar buffets wednesday-friday lunch according to our server. Gave it 3 stars because the food took 38mins to come out from the... More

Late one evening watching Guy Fieri food show and this place was one of his recommendations; we had to go try it out. We fell in love! Jamaica Gates is the pathway to great Caribbean food in Arlington, Tx. When we go, I always order the Portland Sampler because I like variety and the Chocolate Rum Runner Cake have enough... More

We went to lunch on a Saturday early before any rush. We were seated first and ordered before other patrons but we were served or food last. We had chicken salad and another chicken dish that were not even close to being Jerk. Which based on other meals coming out of the kitchen, our meals were not complicated.The restaurant is... More

This place is a hidden gem. The food here is amazing. We had the sampler platter and everything on it was magnificent. The red stripe curry was fantastic. The staff here are friendly, efficient, and fast. Highly recommended.

I have visited Jamaica Gates several times since 2009. I am never let down when eating here. The food is great, I can expect consistency, and if I feel like a little dancing I can do that as well. With a live band & DJ, this place is sure to please every visit!!

Never been here. But you must try the Kingston trio my favorite was the Boston. It also came with jerk chicken and ox tails. The red snapper was awesome.
