Veg-friendly Caribbean bar and restaurant

Good life is a Caribbean restaurant on the Milwaukee River that features a number of vegan options, including: curry cashew burger; tofu & veggie platters (jerk or curry style) with fried plantains, beans, & rice; and sweet potato chips with guacamole and mango salsa. They also offer brunch on the weekends but the vegan options are more limited then. There is a trendy bar and seating area indoors and a beautiful outdoor patio that is right on the water.

I love the jerk tofu! Everyone I have taken has loved it also. Double-check on the bun for the veggie burger - when I went it was not vegan. Although we did mention they should change it, so maybe they have since then.

The restaurant is beautiful (especially the outdoor patio) and the food was good, but I wasn't overly impressed with the service. I had the curry cashew veggie burger, which had a great flavor, but is a bit dry if you get it without the aioli sauce (which isn't vegan). They don't offer another sauce and this isn't a ketchup-friendly burger. I also had the sweet potato chips with guacamole and mango salsa, which were good, and ended up putting the mango salsa on my burger. There are only about 3 veg options on the menu, but considering their entire menu has something like 10 options, it's not a bad ratio.

My friend ordered the tofu/veggie platter and I sampled it and it was really good, but it's a little expensive ($17). If you're vegan, be sure to omit the aioli sauce that would normally be drizzled over the roasted corn on the platter.

The service was slow and our waiter seemed irritated the entire night. We then found out that he had applied and automatic gratuity to our bill (of only 5 people), so this could be why he wasn't trying to hard to be polite.
