Was told to skip hotel food

Amazing Jerk and Rum punch. Stayed at a hotel and the food was ok so I asked the staff where I should go outside.

Stopped here on the way back from our tour to Ocho. It was neat to see the meat being cooked on the sweet wood. Nice outdoor seating area and bar and Great jerk chicken! The chicken was not dry and the sauce was very good and spicy...like I like it! Definitely worth stopping by.

The Scotchies by Drax Hall had an awesome setting worth tiki tiki huts set in a garden environment. You get to see your food being cooked real time and prepared right of the pimento wood covered barbecue.

If you're visiting Jamaica and will be around Montego Bay, this is one place you must visit. The food is great here, probably some of the best jerked chicken that I've ever had....it's really good and the prices are great too.

I visited this past weekend and I loved this place. I had the Jerk chicken, Jerk pork, the chicken sausage and festival. The food was so good I licked my fingers. If you're in the area you must give this place a try !

This was my favorite jerk spot while in JA. The smoke flavor from the pimento wood really makes it. Cool to watch where they cook it, too.

Their jerk chicken and festival were delicious! Love how they cook the chicken outside with leaves! You can also watch them prepare it. Nice seating outside under handmade gazebos.

Scotchie's has delicious jerk chicken and festival. We usually stop at this location en route to Ochie after the long travel day. The location is great for carry-out or dine-in food. I also like that the restaurant gives change for your purchase(s) in USD.
