Worst customer service I have ever experienced in my life. My husband ordered a Caesar salad with shrimp to go & brought it to my work (15 min away). Instead of putting the dressing on the side, the salad was completely drenched in dressing. I...More

The ambiance is comfortable, its a bistro setting where the Jamaican flavors are balanced and not overwhelmed by spice. The staff is good, the menu has all the island staples, I had ice tea and fried snapper.

Another wonderful dinner at Rocksteady! Coco bread, sampler, jerked chicken, brown stewed chicken, Salmon and Shrimp. We were full when we left but will be back for another meal before we heard back to Ohio. Great people and terrific food!

The jerk chicken is very tasty. We discovered this restaurant last year when visiting Boca. So we came back to this restaurant again this year. The place is small so make sure you go there early.

My daughter and her boyfriend took me here and I loved it. The jerk chicken is incredible and the plantains are Yum! The oxtail was so tender and delicious. The snapper was good too. Our server Rachel was very friendly and attentive. Loved it!!!

We happened upon the smaller version of this Jamaican delight for lunch one day and during our visit to boca, planned to try the larger ( but still very quaint) location for dinner. The food is truly amazing. Best jerk chicken ever, and the chef...More
