“serving authentic Jamaican dishes”

The Reggae Shack Café is a mid-scale, reggae-themed Jamaican restaurant, serving authentic Jamaican dishes and Jamaican-inspired vegetarian cuisine. The Reggae Shack Café opened its doors on September 18, 2003, marking the restaurant a Virgo. Located at 619 West University Avenue in Gainesville, FL, the Reggae Shack Café was ranked one of the best places to eat by the Gainesville Sun in 2005. We are conveniently located about six blocks from the University of Florida campus, five miles from Interstate 75, and only a few blocks from historic downtown Gainesville. The Reggae Shack Café logo is a shack under a coconut tree and dancing to reggae music, and our slogan is “Culture so rich you can taste it.” Our goal is to serve delicious dishes firmly based in Jamaican cooking techniques, spices, and heritage without compromise but with clear consciousness of the evolution of Jamaican cooking worldwide of which we are at the forefront. We also aim to promote the positive aspects of Jamaican culture through music, ambiance, community support, and cultural education. We invite you to come experience, taste, feel, and enjoy our passion for the Jamaican people, food, and culture – a culture so rich you can taste it.
