THE FOOD: Dunns River Lounge offers authentic Jamaican cuisine for over 17 years in a casually elegant & intimate setting on Long Island. Our menu, prepared by Chef Bobby and his crew, features traditional dishes like Jerk Chicken, Braised Oxtails, Curried Goat and Jerk Salmon as well as creative daily specials like Jerk BBQ Ribs, Jerk Lobster Pasta & Codfish Fritters with Guacamole.

THE COCKTAILS: We are foodies, but we're equally known for our tropical hand-crafted cocktails made with premium liquor and fresh ingredients.

THE VIBE: Whether you dine with us indoors or on our outdoor patio during the summer months, you'll feel like you are in Jamaica. Enjoy weekly live entertainment with the sounds of reggae, soca & r&b. We're great for everything from small dinners for two to large family-style celebrations for 20 guests or more!

AND YOU: When you come to Dunns River you will feel like family. As we always say, "the only thing we love more than good food and drinks is You! "

    The waitress was excellent. The food was good. However, there was no rice and peas. So we had to eat our meals with white rice. It was disappointing because it's a Jamaican restaurant and our culture's staple side is rice and peas. It was also Father's Day. It was only 12:30 pm and they ran out of rice and peas. I spoke up about it. But I could not help noticing that there were many takeouts. Perhaps the takeout orders received the rice and peas. We had reservations and were visiting from Florida.

    Food is great, but I have to say service was impeccable Nala is amazing and they were very accommodating going above and beyond for me and my party. Would highly recommend! Great music to vibe to and the Rum Punch is on point. The only recommendation is a notation that big and beautiful people opt out of the high tables as I got complaints that the chairs are not comfortable and proved difficult to get into for some.

    Our food took.a little long to get to your table. But the one man band helped as we waited. The entertainment was great. I ordered the cod fritters was good! The spring rolls vegetable were process frozen stuff that they just put in the oven to bake. My curry shrimp should have been jumbo but it was baby shrimp. It was okay but not the best that I am used to. I will probable return just to order drinks and the cod fish fritters.

    The cocktails are delicious! Can’t go wrong there! We started with the salt fish appetizer…it was delicious…full of flavor. We loved it. For main course we both got the Snapper Escovitch…which we both enjoyed! Fish was nicely fried and served with the pickled onions and peppers. We expected a bit more heat from the peppers but decided it was ok not to have it too spicy. Sweet plantains were yummy as were the rice and peas. I topped mine with oxtail gravy…so delicious! We thoroughly enjoyed our meal there! Highly recommend!

    We were very disappointed in the food as we’ve been to Dunn’s before and the food was tasty. It’s unclear if the restaurant is under new management or a new cook but there a change. The escovitched wings were salty and didn’t taste of escovitch more like hot wings. The entrees were so oily it saturated the rice and plantains. The oxtail wasn’t flavorful, heavy on the browning and the goat wasn’t tasty either.

    Food was too salty and Spicy. Had several different items. Only 1 server was available to the whole restaurant. After speaking to 2 other friends that all went within 1 week of me, stated the same issue with the food and only 1 server available. My friend who went the night before with a group of 3 people had to wait 2 hours for appetizers (No main course was added)

    The food was garbage. I ordered salmon and it tasted like sardines and the rice was not properly cooked. Just horrible!!! If the food had matched the price then I would have felt better. I would not go back to dine here because I had high expectations but I was very disappointed in the dinner. High Priced, Low Quality.
