Great food. I had the curry chicken. The portion was appropriate and the chicken was very juicy. The sauce had a great flavor and the potatoes had just enough bite, yet cooked fully. No mush! Side dish was sweet fries, super yummy and also great portion size.

Looking for something a little different?
They smoke the meat on a grill outside...so, I could pass it up! The food was very tasty and the entertainment they had was great. If you like Jamaican food, you will love this place! I had the chicken, and my husband tried the Oxtails...both...More ... read more

Best Ribeye Ever
This place has the best Ribeye. It has a bit of a spice to it but when paired with the plantains you cant go wrong!

This place is hands down, the best, cleanest, trendy Caribbean place I have ever tried.  It's not all show either.  The show is the food.  I HAD to finish the cabbage.  Cabbage is at best, a third string food on my chart. Here, it's just yummy.  Who knew?  Jerk Chicken was flawless. Rice and back beans came in a generous pile, all th ... read more

I'm from the Virgin Islands and I love Caribbean food. Cutlass Grille is one of my favorite places to visit when I want some island food and don't want to cook it myself.

Stopped here while driving to the Outer Banks; it's quite convenient to the highway to get off of 64 and make a stop. We had delicious, crunchy coconut shrimp and a delectable bread pudding. Highly recommend if you're passing thru Chesapeake!
