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!

We really enjoyed the food & experience, lots of Jamaican families and locals, so you know the food is good. We had the chicken, pork & fish - never knew there was jerk fish - my husband loved it, we tried the yams, festival and bammy, it was great to see how all was prepared and cooked. Staff were fun...

We came here from these trip advisor suggestions for lunch and it was the best choice we could have made mid-day. It's frequently visited by locals and rightly so - it has some of the best jerk food I've tasted. The jerk pork and chicken were both flavorful (woody mesquite) and still tender. I really like the leaner pork they... More
