You’ll probably have to wait for a table at this casual Caribbean joint, as it’s a lunch and dinner favorite with both visitors and local surfers who look like they were born with sand in their hair. Thankfully, there’s a small bar and side patio where you can enjoy beach-themed drinks that help the wait go by faster. If you’re dining solo, it’s much easier to get a spot at the bar, where you can watch sports on the nearby TVs or look on as the staff preps seafood steamers. The jerk chicken is the signature plate that’s loaded up with beans, rice, and tender chicken, but you should definitely also order the island fries and the hefty fish burrito made with whatever’s fresh that day.
