You can't leave Jamaica without coming to Scotchies! The way they prepare the food on wood logs is amazing. This is the real deal!

Food is great at scotchies, i especially enjoyed the jerk pork and steam fish fillet. View your food been cooked (jerked) over open flames of sweet wood. I have eaten at scotchies many times last been Thursday the 27th when I took guests. Everyone enjoyed this little bit of local jerk. .

This one is the best of the three locations. All choices wonderful. real jamaican way. the sausce is spicy so proceed with caution with this one. i suggest the jerk chicken with the sweet potatoes try it. The location fairly easy to find is right near police station coming from the airport near a gas station on the right hand... More

Stopped here for lunch after our Dunns River Falls tour. The jerk chicken was fabulous! Rustic outdoor seating made from tree branches was cool.
