Jerk Pork was soooo good.

Jerk Pork and chicken was so good. Customer service wasn't the greatest but I'm Jamaican so I'm use to it.

This was an authentic jerk experience. The food was splendid and you have the opportunity to stand and watch the cooks as they prepare the meal in the true jerk style. The options are plentiful with several local treats and the portion sizes are just right. This s is one to try when you visit Jamaica.

Had the Jerk Chicken with black beans, try the spicy sauce, not too hot. Service was great with plenty of drink options.

Scotchies use to be great when they just opened but each year I visit they get a little worse. On my last visit the pork and chicken was good. The corn was not well done or even half done, the plantains were oily but the festival was the best I ever got from them. I find that they do better... More

Very good, I had the pork and chicken, sweet potato and lots of Red Stripe. I sat at the large outside bar and enjoyed watching everyone. I was in town for business and tried Sweetwood last time in town, I like this place better, the seating area is nice. Finding it is another story, stuck behind a car dealership in... More
