  • 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!!!

    4 star review  I want to give 4.5 but not an option. The food is delicious. Jerk chicken is flavored nicely and they serve sweet and spicy seasoning on the side. I love HOT, so the extra was appreciated and like that YOU decide heat level. Mac n cheese and cabbage both delicious.

  • 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.
