Great Place - Just wear your bug spray

Jerk was out of this world good. Food all around was terrific, with the outdoor seating nice except if you want to aboid the mosquitos that will chew you up if you are not protected. I loved this place overall. Jerk pork is way above average with the Jerk chicken excellent as well.

Scotchies jerk is one of the best jerk centre. It is situated in a very quite corner where you will have perfect peace. There customer service is good. You have to wait a little but it worthwhile waiting.

It can take a while I food to be ready, but when it is, it's great. Side dishes are all good as well, and there's always the bar to keep you occupied while you wait for the fires to barbecue your jerk. The spices and chillis pack a punch but it's well worth it.

All three (3) Scotchie's locations are very good and very consistent. A great place for the 'real Jamaican jerk' food experience.

I have eaten at Scotchies too many times to count. The Food is great and is the closest you will get to eating the original Boston Jerk

I ordered takeout to enjoy in my hotel room and it was good as always. I have to pay a visit to Scotchies whenever I visit.
