  • 5 star review  This place is awesome! I can't have super spicy. They have the perfect balance of spice. Collard greens were very good.. Can't wait to go back. Definitely on our list of favorite places to eat! The owners are very friendly and explain all the foods. That's great when you are trying new food for the first time.

    3 star review  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.

  • positive review  When I discovered this restaurant I could just look at the food on their website and knew it was delicious. I've been to Jamaica twice and love the island, culture and food. This is a winner!!!

    positive review  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!!

  • 5 star review  A very clean, organized and pleasant environment to be in. The staff was extremely polite and easy to talk too. I choose to eat there and notice a very diverse clientail. The food is really amazing! I had the Jerk chicken, peas n rice, sweet potatoes and greens while washing it down with a cream soda. That was my last meal for the day as it would have been disrespectful to consume something else that day. Lol.. I recommend this spot over ALL restaurants in Frederick! I’ll see you weekly...
