Bob Marley: A Tribute To Freedom

6000 Universal Blvd.
Orlando, FL 32819
(407) 224-2264






Bob Marley’s at Universal Orlando City Walk is a one-of a kind celebration of music and culture as Bob Marley– A Tribute to Freedom takes you on a musical journey through the life of the "King of Reggae." Bob Marley’s songs of faith, hope, rebellion, and determination have brought inspiration and joy to audiences everywhere. Working closely with Rita Marley and the Bob Marley Foundation, they have created a replica of Bob’s home on 56 Hope Road in Kingston, Jamaica. Inside you will find artifacts, photos, and video clips from his legendary career surrounding visitors in the open-air veranda and courtyard.

The cuisine features Jamaican-influenced appetizers, entrees and desserts. Some of the most popular items are the Oxtail Stew, the Sun is Shining grilled chicken breast marinated in Jamaican curry sauce, and the Taste of Jamaica appetizer platter featuring veggie & beef patties, mango wings and yucca fries.

Although the seasoning is pretty accurate for the most part, some of the heat has been dialed back a little bit, I suppose to appease the masses. After all, it is in a tourist corridor. We really enjoyed everything we had, but speaking as someone who has been to Jamaica, the heat on certain dishes could have been amped up a bit more.  

Just about every night of the week you can expect a live Reggae band or various live acts at Bob Marley’s. Always good music and good vibes.

The Taste of Jamaica A tour of Island Flavors features veggie & beef patties, jerk wings, and yucca fries for 14.99. Everything was delicious, but lacked the proper Island heat that I remember from my last visit to Jamaica.
Catch A Fire Chicken Sandwich  with char grilled and  jerk seasoned chicken breast on coco bread with lettuce, tomato, cucumber sauce and yucca fries was pretty tasty. Coco bread is a mildly sweet bread made with coconut milk and is slightly starchy.

Sun is Shining Curry Chicken  with char grilled chicken breast that can be ordered bone in or boneless with Jamaican curry sauce, sweet corn, okra, white rice, seasonal vegetables, grilled pineapple and shredded coconut was a real palate pleaser.

The Reggae Jamaican Jerk Chicken  is a marinated bone-in half chicken that is char grilled and roasted served with Caribbean rice and beans and sweet plantains.  At $14.99 this is a pretty good deal. I was more than stuffed after eating this, and it was pretty damn good. It certainly is a “ Belly Full Entree”  

Whether you want to go for the food or the music...or a little bit of both, Bob Marley : A Tribute To Freedom is certainly worth a visit. I dined with a party of three and the food, music and vibes were all good.
Bob Marley’s the  restaurant  is open from Sunday - Thursday 4pm - 10pm and Friday - Saturday 4pm - 11 pm. The Bar and nightclub portion goes from 9pm until 2am, and it’s 21 and older after 9pm with a $7.00 cover charge.
