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!

This is one of the coolest place for dining/hanging out in the New Kingston area. I went there with a friend to discuss business over some Jerk Pork and Red Stripe Beer. I totally enjoyed my pork and beer. The sea-nary was just gorgeous with the luscious trees and shrubs. The entire atmosphere was just peace and tranquility. Would I... More

Terrible service... The cashier is slow and the ladies getting your order together have no clue about good customer service. I love jerk and I never knew that jerk could go so wrong in taste... Very fake commercial jerk severely lacking in flavour. The dining area is very dirty and unkept... I would not recommend.

How can a business serve burnt pork to a paying customer?! Bun up pork?! Really?! I mean a THICK, BLACK layer on a majority of a 1lb jerk pork order. As a result it was not enjoyable, the pork was bitter and i was completely disappointed. I was never impressed with the quality before but this is the straw that... More

This is always a must eat every time I am in Kingston. For those who like spicy food remember be easy on the pepper. Love the jerk pork.

At Scotchies you order at a window and then wait at a counter for the food to be given to you. The staff was very matter-of-fact and not particularly friendly. However, the Jerk Pork was spicy and quite delicious. I liked the laid-back setting, sitting outside on wooden tables and I can imagine this is a good place to go... More
