Since 1990 Calypso has been serving caribbean food. The owner Chuck is the executive chef, insuring that the recipes remain consistent over the years. As a result, Calypso has remained a solid and consistent place over time.
Calypso is a bit out of the way. There's virtually no chance you'll be driving by here unless you're aimlessly looking for the Cypress Nook. Its on one of those roads that doesn't have a clear crossroad between US1 and 95. While you can get here directly off Atlantic; from the south you'll need google maps or a good GPS. Luckily I have both.
Calypso looks like a dump from the outside, and I was a bit apprehensive about going in. I had visions of rattlesnakes and Rastafarians smoking dope on handmade straw mats. But Calypso isn't like that at all. Its actually a pretty nice space. There's a glass over wood bar with a modern TV, and wood tables and chairs. The TV has MSNBC on, so unless you lean way left you may want to sit in the dining room. There's a dining room separated by a partial wall that is clean and cozy.
Now Calypso is known for their fish, as well as their other caribbean recipes. But I'm a particular fan of jerk chicken wings. Calypso's wings are special; they're spicy with a very peppery flavor. They serve them with some sorty of caribbean mayo, but I prefer them with ranch dressing, so I do take out.
These baby's are great for a late night snack; you can even eat them cold.
