We took an island tour from a cruise ship docked at Montego Bay, and our guide asked if we were hungry, and so we made an ad-hoc stop at Scotchie's. I tried jerk chicken, jerk pork, and "festival", accompanied by Tings for the kids and Red Stripes for the parents (they were ridiculously cheap -- like 1.25 US, so luckily... More

I must say since leaving Jamaica and I've been so many times but when Lindsay of SNL Jamaican Tours took us to Scotchies I was sold. This is the BEST OF THE BEST Jerk in the WORLD and the CoCo bread is to die for. Just seeing them cook the Jerk right on the logs takes me back. I have... More

We left the resort to try Scotchies as it came highly recommended by several local people that we had spoken to. Wow, what a meal. We were a large group, 22 in all so we ordered a lot of different items to share from the menu. I won't go in to great detail, but everything was great, even the coleslaw!... More

Try the chicken and eat it with a little of the pepper sauce. Also try the festival. Every time we visit Jamaica, we stop at Scotchie's. This is where the Jamaicans eat. This is a "must try" location.

Our driver told us to go for the best Jerk Chicken and he was right. It was amazing! The place was easy to find - looks a bit suspect but the atmosphere inside is vibrant. We thought it really was the best Jerk Chicken we ever had. The food in our hotel was terrible so we ate here twice. Highly... More
