Stopped here for dinner with two co-workers after reading about it having been featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Older neighborhood and not very well lit, Cool Runnings' sign is like a beacon in the night. We ordered some of the festival (fried sweet bread)...More

The food was delicious! The curry chicken and sautéed cabbage was excellent. I really enjoyed the brown chicken stew and jerk chicken too. There were too many choices and I didn't have enough room to try them all. The rum cake topped off my meal....More

I love the Rum Punch....omg! Ok, note the food is good, my fav is both the chicken & beef patties, jerk chicken and cabbage. My friend tried the Jamaican burger and wasn't pleased. Overall, the menu has more great authentic food to choose from.

The appetizer section included fresh shrimp and a variety of fresh fruits including mango. All of it was beautiful! The jerk chicken, curry chicken and red snapper were fabulous. So we're the plantains. Service was efficient and elegant.
