Excellent Caribbean Jerk!

Stopped in to Scotchie's on the way back from Blue Hole. Right off the main road, but hidden from the traffic views, we loved the outdoor dining experience and the fact that you can watch as they cook and prepare your food! We ordered the chicken, pork, rice and peas and festival! Everyone loved... read more

We want to try local food (ox tails, jerk meats, beef patties, and fricassee meats...). We went to Scotchie's in Ocho Rios for lunch. Good smoke Jerk pork and chicken. Roasted yams are not sweet at all, and I had better roasted yams. Overall, decent local smoke meats offers something different than our all-inclusive hotel meals. No cheese/beef/chicken patties available,... More

Some of the best jerk chicken I have had. Definitely recommend leaving the resort for a quick lunch! People were very friendly and cost was roughly $20 round trip from Sandals Ochi

A number of people referred this as the best Jerk restaurant in Jamaica. From a food point they were right. The food was amazing. If the service was at least a argue I would have given them 5/5. But the disinterest of staff telling us there was no chicken jerk in the most offhandish way instead of asking us if... More

Scotchies was nothing short of AMAZING! Outdoor kitchen and seating, but be prepared for the best Jerk Pork and chicken you've ever had, and reasonable prices as well! Would eat here at least once a week if I lived in Ochos Rios!
