Our Story

A Few Words About Us

Cutlass Grille Restaurant specializes in Jamaican cuisine and American barbeque. It is an independently owned family restaurant that provides delicious fresh cooked home style food. The restaurant has been a true labor of love. Shawn and Rachel started this journey 25 years ago, when Shawn casually stated that he would love to open a restaurant after retirement. Shawn grew up helping his mom cook classic Jamaican dishes. Not only did he love to learn the cuisine, but he also had a natural talent to replicate everything his mother cooked. As an adult, Shawn discovered that his talent and love for cooking is a gift from God. They came up the name “Cutlass Grille” in honor of Shawn’s Jamaican heritage. A cutlass, also referred to as a machete, is used as an everyday tool used for farming in the islands.  


"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

- Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
