Experience a true “taste of the Caribbean” with mouth-watering food, waterfront dining and live entertainment on “Pusser’s Upper Deck.” The restaurant takes its name from PUSSER’S RUM®, first served on board British Royal Navy Ships in 1650 and recently named by Forbes Magazine as one of the ten best rums in the world. And the name “Pusser’s”? Just a corruption of the word “Purser,” the person in charge of the ship’s stock in the Royal Navy.
Chef Chris DeLay presents a tantalizing menu emphasizing fresh seafood, PUSSER’S® traditional Island Grill menu and regional entrée favorites. Among Pusser’s signature dishes are Red Snapper Ponte Vedra, Barbequed Salmon Tower, Chesapeake Crab Cakes, Jamaican Grilled Pork Ribs, and Trinidad Smoked Duck. And of course, what would a visit to the Caribbean be without PUSSER’S RUM®? Try our colorful selection of authentic island rum drinks, including the infamous PUSSER’S PAINKILLER®.
Pusser’s can comfortably seat up to 250 guests in one of three seating areas: the main dining room and pub-style bar, the outdoor waterside patio, and “Pusser’s Upper Deck,” the second floor terrace seating and bar overlooking the water. All in all, the relaxing atmosphere and tropical and nautical décor capture the feeling of a truly unique and memorable Caribbean dining experience.
“Pusser’s Upper Deck” features live entertainment every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening. The “Rum, Reggae and Ribs” promotion, a local favorite, is held every Sunday from 3-7 pm and features a fall-of-the bones Jamaican Jerk rib plate, drink specials and live Reggae music. While you’re here, don’t forget to stop into the PUSSER’S COMPANY STORE®, featuring unique lines of tropical and nautical apparel, PUSSER’S PAINKILLER® drink mix, Caribbean spices and much more.
