I ate at Scotchies with three family members while vacationing in Montego Bay this winter. This is THE local favorite, and definitely should not be missed on any visit to Montego Bay. Two of us are vegetarian. At first, we were skeptical as we didn't think a jerk restaurant would necessarily cater to us. We were wrong! While the menu... More

Yes, there are many good jerk shops island wide, but ask any local on the Mo Bay coast and they'll tell you Scotchies is it. Easy to find roadside between Mo Bay and Falmouth it serves authentic jerk. There are varying degrees of heat sauces, daily specials, try the ribs if it's Thursday and do try a side 'festival'. Some... More

Loved Scotchies. Had our tour driver drop us off on our way back from zip lining. We were lucky enough to be in line with someone who helped us order. We ordered several large size portions and some sides and ate family-style. It was amazing. The festival was a huge hit with all (jamaican version of cornbread). My favorite was... More

We heard about Scotchies for the first 4 days of our vacation and finally decided to go and we were so glad we did! We got a half lb. chicken, quarter lb. pork, quarter lb. pork sausage, festival, yam, rice, 1 soda and 1 red stripe for $22.00 U.S.! The food and staff were absolutely amazing! If you want to...

Get off your Jamaican resort and go to Scotchies for lunch or for dinner and drinks. It is worth every penny the cab ride will cost you (and it will cost you a lot, with the high price of gas!). The jamaican jerk pork is authentic and addicting. We ate the Pork, the Festival, the Bammy, the conch soup and... More

Scotchies came highly recommended to us during a recent visit to Montego Bay. The atmosphere was great (kind of a beach shack vibe) and the food was good, albeit a bit cold. The jerk seasoning here was among the best we had during our stay. We only wish the food would have been served fresh. I've read that the food... More

A great place to be introduced to Jerk chicken and Jerk pork. The open barbecue pit and smell of food cooking is wonderfully intoxicating. My brother and I were extremely satisfied and can't wait to comeback to this awesome laid back restaurant. A must visit if you are in Montego Bay.
