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.

I love the spicy and sweet sauce together with the rice and jerk chicken. Mac and chz and sweet potatoes make good sides with it, really happy with what I got! Delicious 😋

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.

Ok, first thing I want to say is I'm disappointed because I waited to get home to eat. I wish I would've eaten there and then ordered more food for when I got home. It. Was. Amazing! I had the curry goat, callaloo, macaroni, and the jerk wings. Their signature sauces were the best tasting sauces I have ever had at a Caribbean restaurant. I am currently looking for a part time job because I plan on spending a lot more money on the delicious food. I mean, I have to try everything else right...? I highly recommend this restaurant to any and everybody! Thank you once again!

Authentic, soulful, wonderful. As a culinary graduate, I appreciate REAL food. The curry chicken and oxtail is as real is it gets.

My sister and I had lunch there today for the first time and the food was delicious!! We tried a little of everything curry chicken, coconut shrimp, fried plantains, Mac and cheese, cabbage, brown stew chicken and rice and beans. The staff was very friendly, restaurant was clean and the prices were great! Would definitely recommend giving them a try!

Not my favorite spot. They are smaller in portions than Island Pride and more in price. Ox tail is small and they were kept separate from the sauce, which is different to me. Mac and cheese was also dry. I will try again in a few months to see if there is any change.

If you've never eaten here ... you're missing out!! The jerk chicken is bomb, coconut shrimp are so good - sweet but not too sweet, the sides are killer and where else can you get authentic patties in Frederick?! My faves are the chicken and coconut shrimp, and for sides: mac & cheese, plantains, collards, callaloo everything is sooo good. I swear up and down this is the best restaurant macaroni and cheese I've ever had in Frederick. No processed cheese product here - someone's mama made this! Get your entree with rice & peas, a patty and coco bread and you've got yourself 2 meals (unless you're super hungry, understandable because it's THAT GOOD). Thank you so much to the Jerk n Jive owners and staff - and keep doing what you're doing!!
