Chef Robbie Joseph—who now also operates the Robbie’s Kitchen out at Half Moon—has long been known for serving good food with great harbor views in this joint inside the Montego Bay Yacht Club on downtown’s Freeport Peninsula. The best tables—especially once the sun goes down and, with it, the temperature—are out on the pool deck overlooking the boats in the marina.
The menu is broad and varied, with local West Indian spices often popping up in the otherwise international blend of pastas and pizzas, hamburgers and surf and turf—along with the usual Jamaican favorites of jerked chicken, curried goat, and oxtail stew.
It’s easy to keep dishes under J$2,000 (US$18) so long as you steer clear of the filet mignon and lobster—unless it is a Wednesday, when lobster dinners are two for one.
There are actually many specialty nights, including Tuesday night wings (J$695/US$6 per dozen), and a Friday all-you-can-eat dinner buffet for J$2,850 (US$26) per person (plus two-for-one local drinks). You can keep up with the latest offers on their Facebook page: www.facebook.com/rjseahorsegrill.
