I love this place! Everything I've ever ordered was so delicious even when ordering takeout. Wait staff is helpful when you don't know what to order. I recommend the jerk chicken or the red snapper. Their green beans are the best I've ever had and keep your eye out for the conch fritters appetizer. The only downside I might say is th ... read more

The food here is amazing! Best Goat Curry ever. Only downside tonight, live music which was very good, but too loud. Had to shout the entire time to my date. Also, be wary of the tip guide on your bill...the suggested tips on 18 and 20% are somewhat inflated.

Amazing! The flavor of the food is excellent and the uniqueness of their menu is something needed in Chesapeake. With so many chain restaurants around, Cutlass is a refreshing option close to home.

The food is plentiful and delicious. The servers are polite and friendly. The prices are great. I was pleasantly surprised to find a Jamaican restaurant in Chesapeake, to be honest. Now I know where to eat when I’m down there. Wish they’d open a restaurant in D.C. or Prince George’s County, Maryland. I’d be there all the time!!

This spot is at the top of my list for places that sell Jerk chicken. It's grilled to perfection and due to its excellent flavor, a sauce is not needed.
