Chicken Patio Particulars
Chicken Patio is situated on the patio next to the historic Round House Bar one of the island’s oldest businesses. It is now considerably larger than when first started. Grillmasters originally manned a small charcoal type grill with the same famous delectable homemade island wine basted sauce and chicken as it does today.
A massive 21-foot grill is manned by several talented grill operators to ensure there is always enough to go around.
The star of the show is the chicken. It’s all they do and they do it well. Each chicken dinner includes sides of sweet corn steamed on the cob, a dinner roll, and potato salad. You can also dine on just the 1/2 chicken and sauce for smaller appetites. Extra sauce is just .50 cents and well worth it! Many people buy a few to take home. Grab your napkins and wet naps as this chicken patio dinner is juicy and a little sloppy!
