  • Most authentic Jamaican food outside of Jamaica! If you complain about slow service, you don't understand what Jamaica time is all about! Don't come here if you're in a hurry. Sit back & chill!
  • Get curry chicken, jerk chicken & oxtails and any other jamaican platter you desire. The Jamaican Jerk Hut had a starring role in the film In Her Shoe featuring Cameron Diaz.
  • check out the home made ginger beer
  • The curry goat is fantasitc. BYO liquor and you're set ;-)
  • Perfect for a lazy summer evening, Jamaican Jerk Hut's porch and grassy back yard remind some folks of being on Montego Bay. The atmosphere, service and food are very casual.
  • Yum! Get the jerk with coco bread... And a pitcher of water. Wings!
  • They say BYOB but it should be BYOW bring your own waitress slowest service but food is on point
  • Brownstew Chicken....YES!!!!
  • Jerk chicken is a must although everything is great. Also check out their selection of D&G sodas - a true Jamaican staple.
  • Don't know why they have Rum Cake on the menu because the never have it.
  • This place is one of the main reasons I moved to Philly. Good food, live music, byo, and great atmosphere.
  • We got the escovich (snapper), jerk chicken platter, chicken roti and a few beef patties! I just wish there was more escovich sauce, onions and carrots to smother the fish with. Everything was yummy!
  • Chicken jerk plate + beef patties were so flavorful and tasty. Kinda slow service, but the chef was also our waiter - so it makes sense!!! There are crayons on table, so play tic tac toe to kill time!
  • Oxtail is excellent
  • Check out The Jamaican Jerk Hut as seen on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives
  • Attending Family Wedding Meet & greet
  • Delicious, but very slow.
  • Can't go wrong with the jerk chicken. Ask for the sauce on the side so you can control the heat
  • This place is unbelievably good! Didn't think it was possible to get near close to the real deal so far away from Jamaica, but they did and it's gooood! A must for everyone! #TeamBrownStewChicken
  • Outdoor seating in the late summer eves makes the food taste better!
