Last year was my 24th visit to Jamaica but my first to Scotchies.....boy have I missed out on some fantastic local jerk chicken. A definite return with every visit from that point forward. One week and counting....can't wait. Outside eating, definitely for the locals but a lot of tourists starting to visit. It is wonderful!! The sauce is hot but... More

If you find yourself in Montego Bay with a grumbling tummy, find a taxi driver and tell him to take you to Scotchies for some Jamaican Jerk. Located on the A1 just down the road from the airport, this unassuming roadside shack has some of the best jerk chicken and pork you'll ever find. This isn't some tourist trap either.... More

Right price - phenomenal taste! Great outdoor ambiance as the food is prepared out in the open. Washed it down with some alcohol and I was in heaven. Almost bit my fingertips! The steamed fish and jerk chicken are also good but the jerk pork was the standout.

Once a neighborhood staple, now the fond feature of television travel shows and hot pepper aficionados everywhere, Scotchies creates the aroma of jerked pork, chicken, fish and sausage from the pimento wood grills, sunrise to sunset. Try the breadfruit, festival and yams as complimentary food groups married to the heat of the "jerk". With low prices and inexpensive beverages, you... More
