Stopped in a couple days ago for lunch. We have been there a few times prior for Dinner and really enjoyed the experience. At lunch they have a buffet which had a little bit of everything that is offered on the menu. At first I was just going to order my favorite dish, Curry Goat. The hostess informed me that... More

Did some Brewery hopping that evening and stopped to grab some food. Wasn't too busy. The food was quite tasty and served piping hot. Washed it all down with an ice cold Red Stripe.

The food here was good but it wasn't great. We tried the stew chicken and jerk chicken. My stew chicken was greasy. The Jerk chicken was better. Could have been better

This restaurant is owned by Andrew Ashmeade who hails from Jamaica, and the food, especially jerk chicken, is AMAZING!

The servers are fun, the food is great, and the atmosphere is perfect. We went on Thursday karaoke night and it was a riot. So much fun.

My gf and I rarely have time to spend with each other during the week. However, today I made an exception and so happy we were able to enjoy the lunch buffet at Jerk Hut - Fowler. Upon arrival, the line was almost out the door but the wait was not too long. The host was working by himself at... More

It was a Friday night and the restaurant had a live band that played good music! The food was good but a bit understaffed. The manager served us and the drinks were great! Me and my friends had a good time listening to smooth Caribbean themed music. Then later in the evening it was like a club! Very entertaining! Will... More
