Must Have!

If you want great authentic Jamaican food.. THIS IS IT! I tried almost everything on the menu and it is pure goodness! My personal favourites are the jerk pork and "festivals" (YUM). The only downside to this spot was wait time and some items are often not available. The line is always really long... read more

Stopped here briefly on the way to Montego Bay. The red pea soup was delicious! The jerk wasn't as good I expected it to be though.

Can't go wrong with this local spot. Try the chicken sausage. Excellent! But so is everything else. I needed a break from the "authentic" Jamaican resort food.

We made a lunch stop while on a stop with a cruise. We thought this was very good and enjoyed it very much. Our perspective is relative - we've never eaten any other "authentic" food in Jamaica, but we thought this was very tasty.

When we asked where we can get the best jerk in Ocho Rios, we were told time and again, Scotchies is the place to go...and that was the truth! Very popular with the locals, a little far off, and non-descript location, it did not disappoint! We had jerk chicken and pork and at like there was no tomorrow! Highly recommended!

This food was delicious. I went with my husband and 3 siblings and we all had a big meal with drinks and the cost totaled $45. How awesome is that! Pretty fast. Only downside are the cats that roam around begging for food. Lol

Every time I go to jamaica, which is very often, I have to stop here on my way from Montego Bay to kingston. On my last occasion a few weeks ago, I had the chicken with festival, sweet potato, festival and a cup of chicken soup. Definitely worth the stop on every occasion.

Extremely busy that it was impossible to find a parking spot, but at least the food was delicious and when these little boys that tried to beg/overwhelm for money came to harass my car, the man directing the parking cars near the entrance chased them off. They do come back though every few minutes, and the wait can be long.... More
