What Diners Are Saying:

We had heard great things about this restaurant and we were not disappointed! In fact we went twice! Very easy to book through the hotel/restaurant. They send a taxi to pick you up and you pay the guy on your return. Taxi drivers were prompt and friendly.
Both times, service and food were first class. Great drinks and conversation with Razor at the bar watching the sunset and great service by Randol and ( forgive me) the other waitress whose name I forget. We loved that we weren’t rushed and that our food came out when we were ready, it really added to the whole dining experience. We had a nice bottle of Rose for $60.
The food was good value for the quality and quantity. The papaya shrimp dish was par excellence 
Each dish felt it was made and prepared with love and I’m so glad we made room for dessert- the rum cake with the extra shot of rum was the ‘Crème de la crème’ 
I think we will have to book a stay here next time…

We had a wonderful meal at the Lodge tonight. The venue is spectacular with amazing views of the ocean. Michele, waitress, and Splinter, bartender, took great care of us. Very professional and friendly service. 
We loved our food. I had the chicken soup and the Jamaican shrimp. Both were fantastic. 
My wife had the Cesar salad and the nut crusted snapper. She loved them. 
Splinter made an amazing mojito. It was very refreshing. 
The restaurant provided free shuttle service from our hotel from the Beach House Condos in Negril. Please be sure to tip your driver on the way to the restaurant. We were able to use the same driver, Tony, for the trip back to our hotel.The prices were good too. Enjoy!!!”
