Humble Beginnings

About us

It is with these fond memories, that we created The Island Spot, an authentic island restaurant where you can come to taste the flavors of Jamaica and the Caribbean in a fun and vibrant atmosphere. We invite you to enjoy our authentic food. From Jerk chicken to curry shrimp, and fresh squeezed juices– Mama Joyce’s recipes remain a staple for all our dishes.

Mama Joyce Kitchen

When Mama Joyce made Sunday dinners the whole family gathered to savor her delicious food. She made fresh fruit juice from the in season fruits from the family trees and nearby farmer’s market. From mango to passion fruit, to soursop, Mama Joyce could whip up a delicious concoction that complemented every meal to perfection.

With theses fond memories The Island Spot was created. With Mama Joyce’s recipes as the staple for all of its dishes, The Island Spot is an authentic Jamaican restaurant where you can come to taste the flavors of the Caribbean in a fun and vibrant atmosphere.

Jamaican Interior

Explore our authentic décor. Take a look at our family portraits and our personal photographs of our favorite spots in Jamaica. And of course, no Caribbean experience is complete without the sounds of Jamaica’s smooth reggae of icons such Bob Marley, the energetic beats of legend Byron Lee and the Dragonaires, or the unmistakable sound of steels drums in the atmosphere.

Family Owned

The Island Spot is truly our spot. The Island Spot is family owned and operated. Our goal is to provide a window into our lives growing up in Spanish Town, Jamaica and dining in the Caribbean. The Island Spot is a place where family and friends can come together to share fun and wonderful memories around the dinner table.
