Mo-Bay Grill - Restaurant Review
Share this page:
by Thomas Miller, The Treasure Coast Foodie |
I have fond memories of Mo-Bay Grill as my first restaurant review and one that influenced the start of my blog. . . .The Treasure Coast Foodie.
While the majority of the cuisine served here is International, Chef Wesley Campbell, owner and Executive Chef of Mo-Bay Grill, definitely leans towards Jamaican and Caribbean flavors because of his roots. Island flavors are definitely in my Top 5 favorite cuisine types because of the sweet, spicy and bold flavors, so I was excited to review this place once again.
The restaurant has a comfortable atmosphere and just recently went through a few upgrades. You have a nice view of the Indian River from the main dining room with all the windows in the front of the building. Earthy orange & brown colors adorn the walls along with murals of Jamaica and the Caribbean. Lighting was minimal, but we had plenty of daylight to read our menus since we were there for an early dinner.
Blackened Sea Scallops with a Sweet Plantain Sauce (pictured in large photo above)
I can’t stop thinking about this dish. Chef Wesley does not usually have this dish on his regular menu, but let me tell you, it’s FANTASTIC!
When you dine there next time, ask Chef to make this dish for you.
The scallops were as perfectly cooked as it gets, the seasoning on the scallops added tons of flavor with minimal heat, and they are covered with a sweet plantain butter sauce that I can only describe as WONDERFUL! Can you tell that I liked this dish? I liked it so much that it made its way to one of my Top 10 Best Dishes I tasted of 2019.
Jerk Chicken Pasta (pictured in smaller photo)
Last but certainly not least, was this Jerk Chicken Pasta dish! It’s made with Jerk seasoned chicken breast that was sliced into strips and served over bow tie pasta in a creamy parmesan herb sauce.
The garlic bread was some of the best I’ve tasted anywhere around town. The pasta was cooked perfectly, the chicken was tender and flavorful with just a touch of heat, and the garlic bread was sweet and crunchy on the edges.
My expectations for this place were set fairly high after reading lots of great online reviews. The restaurant has a great location, a comfortable laid-back island vibe, and of course the food is outstanding! I will definitely be returning in the near future for another great meal at Mo-Bay Grill and I suggest you check them out too!
