It was nice to see a large scale jerk kitchen .......but the food wasn't all that great. Flavor wasn't bad but I have had jerk elsewhere many times, and this one needs more moisture retention.

This place serves good jerk pork and chicken. It's not my favorite place to go jerk pork, but the hours and location are good. And the flavors are decent.

Loved the atmosphere, the menu and the food. Its open late and the food is quite good, not the way I remember Jerk,but its unique in its own way. Not much to dislike. If you want Jamaican Jerk, do stop by Scotchies.

Took my Romanian colleague here last week, we sat at the bar where we were able to order our food. They will take your order and serve you right there too. Bar service was decent with great prices! so if you are on a budget... this is a good option.

If you like jerk, you'll love Scotchies. Get the pork, it's incredible. Also, the bami is really nice. Personally, I'd skip the yam if I were to go again...

Food is very flavorful and the surroundings just takes you away from the hustle of Kingston. Whether its a evening out with friends or a quick lunch break it truly a place to stop for good jerk!

If you visit kingston you MUST stop at Scotchies to try real jerk food. The place is ok if you want to eat there, but the real attraction is the food and how they cook it. Flavours are amazing. Try the fish... best fish ever!
