Located right outside the walls of Half Moon Resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica, there is one the best restaurants on the island, The Sugar Mill. As a part of the Half Moon Resort, The Sugar Mill not only offers a history lesson but also serves fantastic food. Upon arrival, you are greeted at the foot of this gigantic waterwheel “…that powered the 50,000 acres of the Running Gut sugar estate spreading from Rose Hall in the east to Little River in the west.”
Built in the 17th century, this once sugar plantation is a fabulous option for a couple to host rehearsal dinners or even receptions, depending on the number of guests. You have the option to use main dining area that holds 140 persons.
On the lawn, in front of the waterwheel, you can entertain your guests as well. The Sugar Mill also offers the upper field-stone terrace. This area sits above the waterwheel and looks fantastic with long tables (as pictured in this article). The terrace offers an intimate setting that looks magical and easily seats fifty people.
My favorite meal offered here is the flaming shish kabob. It’s a freestanding shish kabob on a large skewer that includes meat and vegetables. When it arrives at your table, the server pours a flaming sauce on it. It is certainly entertaining and delicious!
This sugar plantation also shares land with the golf course where you can participate in “Night Golf.” This is truly an experience where you are given golf balls that are lit from within. The Sugar Mill also offers a tour of its wine cellar. Whether you are hosting a welcome cocktail party, a rehearsal dinner, or a reception, The Sugar Mill’s amazing food will captivate your taste buds!
