    positive review  Great place, great food!! Danielle and James take lots of time explaining everything, they'll even adjust spice levels, and of course being able to have little tastes of dishes you're not familiar with is a real treat. We are definitely going back :)

    positive review  So today I tried the coconut shrimp and of course I ordered the oxtails. When I tell you I left feeling satisfied and had some to take home for later. This is my new comfort food spot. I think I will try the snapper the next time I go.

    positive review  Just ordered some food from Jerk N Jive Caribbean Kitchen (through Grubhub). I ordered 1/2 Jerk Chicken Dinner with Rice, Veggies, and Collard greens, One beef patty, a side of Sweet Potatoes, and an orange soda. What I received was the 1/2 Jerk Chicken dinner and a Dr. Pepper. I have to assume Grunhub is to blame for missing half my order, and messing up my drink order, but the food that did get here IS PHENOMENAL!! Best chicken I think I may have ever eaten, best collard greens EVER!! and the rice is on point too! I'm not giving a grade yet, because I really want to try the Beef patty and sweet potatoes before grading the restaurant, but so far... I would absolutely order again!

  • 5 star review  My daughter and son-in-law highly recommended Jerk N Jive, so my husband and I decided to stop in for dinner last night. We didn't realize they closed at 8p..it was 7:45! James could not have been more welcoming and no concerns about the time. We ordered: Jerk Salmon and Coconut Shrimp with amazing sides of callaloo (Caribbean Spinach), Plantains (amazing), rice and beans, mac and cheese! The food was amazing and we were able to sit and enjoy without worrying about closing time. We met "Mayor" from the kitchen who was a delight as well. Go!! The food is amazing...James wife, Mary, is the chef (educated at Johnson and Wales/CT) with lots of creative twists on Caribbean food!! Can't wait to go back!!!

    5 star review  Hands down the best Jamaican food I’ve had in Maryland! I always judge a Jamaican restaurant by how well they make their rice and peas as well as their portion sizes. This restaurant did not disappoint! The rice and peas was well seasoned and not mushy. Love the type of rice grain used! Also, they’re definitely not skimpy on the portions. I got my money’s worth. Keep it up, Jerk N’ Jive! You are a gem in Maryland.
