Calypso is a restaurant with a 'beachy' casual feel in an out of the way strip mall but more than makes up for that with a tasty and spicy range of dishes with a Caribbean influence. We were a party of three that shared our dishes and for me the highlight was the crab cakes found on the back page... More

Like I said in the title, went there in a span of 4 days, fresh fish is amazing grilled, shrimp also, appetizers are so tasty, gotta try the grilled conch can't go wrong. Must get ginger dressing on your salad, and some extra to dip shrimp in, OH just get some extra for everything it is SOOOOOOO great!

I couldn't be happier with the meal I had here. We were a party of 5 and everyone walked away with a smile on their face. If you want one of the local catches, get there early as they will sell out quick. Two of us had something I had never heard of and still cant remember the name of... More

This was a date night for us. It was a great choice. It is a small restaurant that doesn't even play music so it is a bit loud, but the food and service were very good. They definitely give you a lot of food for your money, and what we had tasted good. Will be visiting this little spot again

This place closes in the summer and re-opens in October. We chose it based on TA reviews. The menu is a blend of seafood based Caribbean style food. The Shrimp you could tell was WILD CAUGHT and very good. Husband had the Lamb and said it was just ok, nothing to write home about. I also had a Jerk Chicken... More
