I love the vibes at Scotchies. I have eaten at Pork Pit & Scotchies for years but I like the flavor of the chicken much better at Scotchies. My jerk chicken is always right. I don't add sauce to it until after I taste it first. I never need sauce/gravy for it anyway. I love the atmosphere to eat &... More

This place was suggested to us by our driver. And I am so thrilled we went because we got to see the pork cook to perfection and the taste was amazing. I will definitely return here the next time I'm in Jamaica!

This was the only place I used my credit card while on vacation there last week and sure enough... yesterday an attempt to purchase something nearby Scotchies for $2k was made.

Locals eat here. That's all you really need to know. Ok, if you really need more details: delicious meats cooked over pimento wood on an open grill: pork, chicken, sausage, fish. Traditional sides. A bar. The best servers. What more do you need? Oh yeah, you can buy their house scotchbonnet sauce to take home with you and it's made... More

Best jerk chicken and pork I've ever eaten! The place is a small, picnic table style which is PURE Jamaica. Just a few minutes from Half Moon Bay. Awesome!
