From the moment we walked up I smelt the aroma of Pimento and seasoned pork and chicken as well as various other goodies being prepared. The restaurant is very popular with the locals and is always cooking up great food so day or night its always Jerk time at Scotchies The method of Jerk or Jerky was something the maroons(runaway...

Before our trip to Jamiaca, my husband and I googled the best locations for jerk chicken and we kept seeing the name Scotchie's. We put it on our list of things to try, thinking it was probably just a touristy type place, but we would give it a shot. When our private transfer picked us up from the airport, we... More

The food is very good and the place is clean. The jerk pork and rice are must-haves. The locals prefer those.

We were told to visit Scotchie's for lunch multiple times and finally decided to have lunch there one day. The system of ordering and picking up your food is a little disorganized, so don't be afraid to speak up to get your food. We ordered multiple foods we hadn't tried before including bammy and bread fruit. The chicken was really... More

the menu was confusing since everything had to be ordered separately. There were no meal options. Everything in Jamaica is pricey so the prices there are not any different. We ordered chicken, pork, and rice with beans. The rice was really good and we liked the chicken more than the pork. We ordered margaritas and they were horrible! The person... More

I read about Scotchies on tripadvisor, so I knew it would be pretty good. Having been to Jamaica before, and had jerk seasoning in my home pantry I thought I knew something about it. I was mistaken! First the experience, Scotchies is back yard dining with the waiting line covered in shade and seating options at picnic tables in the... More
