It may not seem like much when you get there but once you try the food you will understand why it has become a must try in Jamaica just like when you are in Montreal Shwartz is must a try for smoked meat sandwich. Most people go for the jerk chicken or pork which is second to none but try... More

The trip to Scotchies was certainly an experience... firstly you are encompassed by the smells of the food cooking and the spices. The service of the waitresses and the taste of the food was flawless. i would highly recommend the Jerk Pork however the spicy sauce was too hot to handle but that was optional on the table for those...

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.
