I admire this venue very much. There is a nice ambiance. The meals are tasty. The service is efficient, and the crew is courteous. The cost is fair. I highly recommend.

- Robert N.

So delicious! It was cooked to perfection! Great and friendly service, choice of take out or sit down. Also had an area to see current news events in the area!

- C L.

I always eat here. It’s my favorite spot to dine. I sit in my favorite table near the door and dine alone. Great vibe here. I can think and gather my daily dealings while feeling comfortable and satisfied. Best in Charlotte hands down. I’ll be there tomorrow.

- William Y.

Excellent. Former co-worker has a reputation for knowing where to go for dinning in Charlotte. He’s yet to let me down. Really great Jamaican flavor.

- Bret T.

Caribbean Hut was very good. My husband and I had the curry chicken and rice and the stewed fish.

- Teresa L.

The oxtails are always good. The cabbage is crisp and fresh! The rice and beans are the bomb! Great!

- Yvonne O.

I’ve eaten there every few months for over 8 years, sometimes with my family — never been disappointed. I guess I go at the right time, but the Irish Moss and pineapple ginger drinks are great.

- DeCarlo B.

Hands down the best Caribbean food I’ve had in Charlotte. It’s fresh and authentic, and the staff is friendly. I’ve tried other restaurants near here, but there is no comparison. Check out Caribbean Hut. You won’t be disappointed.

Just before closing time on a Friday night, we stopped in for some food. Even though it was the end of the day and I’m sure the waitress and kitchen staff must have been tired, the service was excellent, and the food was even better. The waitress was very attentive to our table’s needs and offered several excellent suggestions for both Caribbean beverages and food. We weren’t looking for a huge meal, so we decided to share two plates of food between the four of us. The waitress was very kind and didn’t hesitate to bring extra plates for sharing, family style. We will definitely be back for more of this wonderful food!

Just finished the absolute best jerk chicken I’ve ever had. These guys get it right! No irie vibes here. Nice people. I really enjoyed it!

- Devin T.

Food was awesome. On point. Had BBQ chicken and oxtails. Beef patties are slapping, too.

- Alex R.

Had lunch with my eldest son. Nice change in food. Grateful that I taught my son culture.

- Kelly L.

Great food. My suggestion would be to go early.

- Janeisha R.

Went there yesterday, and the food was soooo good!! Got the curry chicken and jerk chicken with beans and rice, cabbage with peas and macaroni and cheese!! Soooo delicious!!!!! Still have some left over!! A real treat indeed!!

- Jenn B.

Jerk Shrimp was pretty darn good. Went there for dinner one night just because it was across the street from the hotel I was staying in. When I saw jerk shrimp on the menu, I thought I’d give it a try. I had jerk chicken enough times but never tried jerk shrimp. It took them 15 minutes to cook from fresh. The entree came with rice and beans, cabbage, and sweet plantains. I ended up loving the jerk shrimp. The sides were all very, very good. It was quite a pleasant surprise.

- Pflau

Been here many times and each time the food and service is great. Jerk chicken that literally falls off the bone, full of flavor with great cabbage, yellow rice and many more options. If you are looking for authentic Caribbean food, this is a spot you have to go in Charlotte!

- Jeremy B.

Great food, my first time eating Caribbean food. I had oxtails which were tender and had so much flavor. Ate there two times in my four day stay.

- Tonya N.

Must see and eat! This place reminded me of the food of Trinidad and Tobago. Very authentic! Great taste! Not what you’d expect to find in a strip mall. Look for this place!

- GN1330

Love it!! Great flavors and the closest to home-cooked food I’ve tasted. If they add escovitch, they will have all my money!

- Terri G.

West Indian food at its finest! This place has a great cook and must be a true West Indian. It’s not fake Caribbean food or someone trying to pass it off as such. The oxtails are tender and just right.

- Tasha8998

The food here is perfect! My husband and I go here for their oxtails and are never disappointed. The plates are a healthy portion, too!

- Alecia S.

Today was my first time stopping by and the vibe and atmosphere was amazing, I could tell that this was an authentic Caribbean restaurant, and the staff was very friendly. I ordered the oxtail & jerk chicken combo with cabbage and the food was amazing. The veggies had the perfect blend of seasonings as well as the rice and peas were made just right, not too hard or soft. The jerk chicken was well-seasoned and I could tell it was fresh. I loved the oxtails and the sauce, and it was a great amount of food on my plate. Next time I’m in Charlotte, I will be going back.

- Joel K.

Delicious, authentic Caribbean food. The smells are intoxicating from the moment you park; the strong aroma of jerk chicken blankets the entire parking lot. They also serve large portions for an excellent price.

- CrazyDog Lady

I love the food here! Sometimes a bit pricey only because I always want oxtails, a beef patty and baba roots! I can eat when the food is right, and here the food is right! The staff makes you feel like family, and the food makes you feel like home!

- Isaac C.

Food is delicious. I like mixed vegetables in jerk sauce or curry sauce. Customer service was great.

- Frank W.

I enjoy their stew or fry fish with rice and peas/sweet plantains. I suggest if you are ordering to-go call over the phone before you arrive. My experience has been a good one.

- Amoy B.

Everything was perfect, service and food! I miss my mommy’s cooking so much. This place is from heaven. Oxtails melt in your mouth. My spot every time I’m in Charlotte! Thank you so much, Caribbean Hut!

- Sandra R.

The food is fantastic. Flavorful and super tasty. Maybe one of the best meals I’ve ever had.

- Jim D.

I had the oxtails, rice and beans, cabbage, and mac and cheese, and it was amazing! Although it was more expensive than I expected, it was worth it! The staff was friendly, and I was able to eat off the portions for 2 days. I will definitely return soon!

- Porsha M.

Great food and friendly waitress, as well as the counter staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. They were out of the kingfish, so the waitress suggested red snapper. Excellent suggestion! The brown stew was very well seasoned. Oxtails were also good. The serving size was generous. Would definitely visit again.

- Felicia

I’m in LOVE!!!! I took my very picky parents, and the food was absolutely delicious! My parents had the jerk chicken & oxtails and cleaned their plates. I’m a vegetarian, but they were able to accommodate me with stir fry veggies, rice, and beans.

- Shanna W.

Only place I get real oxtails, curry goat and jerk. Always fresh, always hot, and always finger-licking good. I love this place.

- Zephaniah

Real genuine Caribbean food made by Caribbean natives. Not frozen or microwaved food and not prepared by “wannabes”!

- Robin S.

Most authentic Jamaican food in the greater Charlotte area. Don’t forget your guinness and magnum! Bless.

- Lebeech

I just wanna thank the shift that was working when I came in — even though they were out of oxtail, they substituted that for a different type of meat and jerk shrimp….I had a long crazy day but they made my night….great food, great customer service over the best Caribbean restaurant I have tried and everyone that knows me knows I love food and great personality as well as world class customer service that comes with it….once again, thank you! Much love!!!

- Latoya M.

My favorite Caribbean food in Charlotte hands down. The portions I receive are great. I like the atmosphere. I usually recommend the stew chicken if you don’t like spicy, but if you do, get jerk chicken and always ask for gravy on your rice.

- Henri A.

Great food. If you like Jamaican food, this is the place to go. Every time my husband and I are in town, we eat here. The restaurant is clean, and the staff is friendly.

- Monroe N.

Amazing Jamaican dishes. Jamaican jerk, curries, gravy dishes fill the senses when you come into this unassuming place. Caribbean drinks are available as well from colas to red stripe beer. Small dining room area for eat in. They also have a carry out service.

-Lili P.

The food was amazing! From the curry goat to the oxtail and the rice and peas was very authentic! The staff is efficient and serves a quality amount of food! I’ve had my share of Caribbean food, and I must say I was impressed!

- Israel L.

Inexpensive, yummy food. Very ordinary restaurant but the food is amazing. Tried the goat curry (large) which was served with beans, rice, and vegetable. A colleague tried the jerk chicken and he loved it too. At $10, it was a great price for the large portions. Not too much price difference between the small and large portions, makes sense to order the large and take the rest home.

I ordered the oxtail and jerk chicken combo with cabbage and a beef patty. The flavors were incredible. I will definitely go back!

- Paola E.

So, I just moved out here from New York City, and have been disappointed by all the food over here… nothing like NYC food, I guess. I’m currently pregnant and have been craving oxtails, so when a co-worker told me about this place and my cousin offered to bring it to me, I jumped on the opportunity. I got a large oxtail and it comes with rice and peas, cabbage and it was supposed to have plantains, but they ran out. I was a little sad but when that food got here, I did not miss those plantains. I got a lot of food. The serving was amazing, just like in NYC. The oxtails were sooooo good and came right off the bone, cabbage was great, and they put extra gravy on my rice just like I asked. The beef patties were also amazing! I will DEFINITELY be ordering again. I plan on going with my Jamaican husband this Sunday after church

- Lauren B.

The staff makes you feel like family. The food was great, and the portions are just right!

- Ki'Saundra D.

The service was good, and the food was tasty!! I ordered jerk shrimp and jerk chicken.

- Shovona R.

Loved it! Only had oxtails there but it all looks delicious. Can’t wait to try the curry goat!

- Dinorah C.

Classic food from home, the Caribbean. Nice staff, clean environment, take-out and dine-in options. Flavors are true to home, if that is why you’re coming to this restaurant. Beef patties, ginger beer, curry goat, rice and beans. Thanks for the experience.

- Isabella V.

The food was great, and the waitress was awesome. Add some music and it would have been fire!

- Kavonna L.

Love this restaurant, reminds me of home cooking on a Sunday, I had the steamed snapper and stew chicken with rice and peas with a bottle of sorrel to wash it down. Yum!

- Andre C.

My first visit was today. You are greeted with an amazing smell of the food cooking. We ordered jerk and brown stew chicken — excellent!! Fresh and hot. The wait staff were two lovely ladies — they were awesome. We will be back!!!

- Vera W.

The food is great!!! The staff is friendly and makes you feel you are at their family home. My first time there was a party of 19 dining in. No pressure, though, because the service was great.

- Noah C.

Best customer service. Great food for a good price. Pictures of the food could be better, but the taste is pretty good. I wanted to try something new and different. How many ways can one make chicken and beans and rice? Right? You have got to try it. I love the spices! I will definitely try this place again

- Honilove Productions

I went to the restaurant at around 3 pm on a Sunday. The service was excellent! I ordered a rice and veggie plate. The food was tasty, and the portion was more than enough. Thank you.

- Portals & Dimensions

I liked the food. The employees are a little hard to understand, because they’re from the islands but they are patient and won’t let you leave without being satisfied…..they have a great selection of homemade drinks; most include lots of ginger….so I hope you love ginger…..try the ginger pineapple. It’s great overall. I’ll go back.

- Jashobeam S.

I love this place. Every time I come, the food is awesome, and the staff is great. Going there for lunch again today.

- Kizzshaunette P.

I’ve been craving some type of Carribean/Jamaican food, and this DEFINITELY fulfilled my craving. I ordered oxtails with rice and beans, and they included plantains and collard greens along with my meal. Not only was the food delicious, but it was very flavorful and authentic. The place is clean, and the prices were not much of an issue since the food tasted great.

- Nea R.

My husband and I stop there every time we’re passing through. Never should run out of iris moss! Love it!

My favorite restaurant in the world – literally. I have been coming here for years, and even with the extensive dining venue that Charlotte has, I am unable to find a place I’d rather relax and eat at. This place is the very definition of “soul food.” The jerk chicken here is out of this world. The sauce is homemade and is a “wet” sauce instead of the “dry rub” style sauce found in many recipes. It is usually spicy enough to make my eyes water. I always ask for extra sauce which I mix in with the rice and cabbage. The large plates are heaped with enough food for two meals. I’ve had jerk chicken in Jamaica, the Bahamas, the British Virgin Islands, Miami, on beaches, in cinderblock construction bars in the Islands, you name it, and I’ve never found food that satisfies me like Caribbean Hut in North Carolina (of all places). I have chosen Caribbean Hut over a three-course meal in Dilworth before. Caribbean Hut will be what I miss most when I have to leave Charlotte one day, and I know my way around. I tip very generously and have ALWAYS been taken care of, no matter what my request. I bring family and friends here all the time to share my experience. Sometimes I ask for a sample of ox tail or curry so that my guests can taste the food before ordering it, and I’ve never been charged for samples or felt like I’ve been looked over in any way. In fact, most of the staff is so friendly that I’m on a first name basis. Come try it for yourself and make an opinion. If given one last day on earth, I’d take: my family, a beautiful windy-sunny day, a bottle of Johnny Walker Red Label, and Caribbean Hut.

I ordered the oxtail and jerk chicken combo with cabbage and a beef patty. The flavors were incredible. I will definitely go back!

- Paola E.

Great Oxtail! I love good Jamaican food, and this place is the best in the Charlotte area. Great oxtails, curry, and pretty much everything else. Very authentic food. Good selection of drinks, and good service.

- PearceNC

This is sooooo authentic. I know this because my boyfriend is from the Caribbean, and he validated it. He had the jerk chicken, and I had the curry. Both dishes were sooooo flavorful. The veggie of the day was cabbage, and it was incredible. The rice was incredible, too. I tried the sorrel, and it is sooo sweet and delicious. I can’t wait to go back. Support local.

- Kari B.

I have been looking for authentic Jamaican food since 2003. I’ve been to many places and nobody gets it right. Except this place. The jerk is that good, dark brown color, and it lit my mouth up! It was DELICIOUS!! The portions are liberal, the atmosphere is cozy, the prices are reasonable, and the service was ok. But what it lacked in service, it made up for in taste. I’ll definitely be going back
