Came for the jerk chicken and was most impressed by the tender jerk pork. No nonsense, great food, but a little far from our hotel. Would eat there if we were on the way back from MoBay to Rosehall area. YUM. Very casual, so come as you are. The sauce is spicy, but great. Dip into it!

Had a great Jamaican meal here of jerk chicken and more. We kind of tried it all, and loved it. Great outdoor seating and very nice wait staff. Our friends are vegetarian and asked for something without meat. .They grilled up a bunch of vegetables and seasoned it. It was delicious! We had some sweet potatoes too which were great.... More

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but it is sooo yummy! If you like hot/spicy food, be sure to ask for "local" sauce on the side. They tone it down for the tourists.

Our driver recommended this place on our return from a villa vacation in Oracabessa. We wanted to get something to eat before going to the Montego Airport and this place worked out great. I had the 1/4 lb jerk chicken and it was very tasty, although I had been quite spoiled by our private chef at the villa we stayed... More

We made two trips to Scotchies. The first was a group of about 11 and we ate like kinds with lots of strong rum punch. Day 2 brought about 24 people with the same lone waitress who with no help was polite and amazing! Avg price for food and drinks was about $20.

You can't go to Montego Bay and not eat at Scotchie's! Best jerk chicken EVER!!!! Jerk pork, breadfruit and soup is to die for also. Definitely the place to eat while you're there!

Wonderful food, cool scene with a great local feel. Ice cold Red Stripes go perfect with the grilled Jerk chicken and pork. If I ever come back to Mobay I will definitely return to Scotchies!

We docked in Falmouth from the MSC Divina. Met up with my lovely friend Arlene. We had the most amazing sit down meal after a few days of cruise food. Our whole chicken was amazing.. My mouth is watering right now. Festivals and a Pina Colada I could eat here everyday if I lived in Jamaica.
