Authentic is all one could say about Scotchies. Full of falvour from the wood fire. The best Jerk spot in Kingston.

The restaurant is hard to find in the middle of a car vendor, but worth the trip. All tables are in semi-private area surrounded by trees. Food is good and not very expensive. You select and pay before you get the food and drink.

The jerk pork and chicken here are delicious. The pepper sauce, so HOT and delicious. I wasn't impressed with the rice and peas or the plantain (a new item on the menu). Due to allergies, I haven't tried the festival. I haven't asked specifically if the meat and rice are gluten and dairy free, but the few times I've eaten... More

Excellent atmosphere. Perfect to chill with family n friends. Food not so enticing. Cost too much. Drinks were too expensive. They want to gain too much profit. So we just drank water which never work out so well with the pepper from d chicken.

This is a nice restaurant with extremely good jerk pork and chicken. The smoky taste with the hot sauce is brilliant.

They have at least three locations (Kingston, St. Ann, and Montego Bay) and you get the same delicious food at them all. Jerked chicken, pork, fish, and sausages are all my favourites -- plus you can make them even spicier with their pepper sauce (don't go crazy with it though, trust me). One of the best things about this location... More

This was really great food. The set up is amazing, covered in trees and each section is in fenced in area with a picnic table and chairs. The hot sauce (pepper) that comes in the yellow squeeze bottle (NOT MUSTARD) is fantastic! Festival was fresh and delicious. I will be back

True authentic experience. Rough seats but excellent jerk! Like that you can buy coconut water in addition to red stripe beer. When a cool breeze comes between Dec. Jan. It is a must stop!
