Best food here

VERY local. Quiet and relaxing and probably the best jerk chicken around. Get out of the resort and eat real Jamaican food here. We will definitely be back. You're welcome. Cheers

The style in which they cook their meats is out of this world and very tasty. Be careful of the hot sauce it can be brutal

We arrived right when lunch started and the smells were AWESOME. We knew by looking at the 'grill' and the staff that this was going to be authentic Jamaican Jerk. Our family of 4 had jerk chicken and jerk pork and it was DELICIOUS! Our tour guide, Whitfield from Marvyn's Paradise Tours brought us here for lunch during our private... More

Delicious food. I swear the jerk chicken was the juiciest I've ever had!! There's also grilled snapper for the pescatarians, but I was also told that they can also accommodate vegetarians. The snapper was also amazing. EAT HERE.

I've been to both the Scotchies before (Kingston and Ocho Rios) and had been happy with the food and the service. However on my last trip to the one in Ocho Rios I was VERY disappointed. The service was TERRIBLE!!! From the cashier to the servers. They were almost rude. I actually had to say something to the people working... More

I've stopped at Scotchie's on many occasions to have a meal. It's definitely one of the best places in the Ocho Rios/St. Ann's Bay area to have a great meal. Whether or not you're into spicy food, this is one of the places you must visit for a real Jamaican meal. I have never been disappointed with the service or... More

This was a local favorite of our driver, Cool Keith with Marvyn's Paradise tours. It was literally an open air restaurant built in a garden. The food was amazing and the prices very good. TIP: get the Festival with your jerk meat, but be careful bc their saucy has a kick!!

We were brought there by our Best Jamaica tour guide. Omg- the food was delicious! They cooked the jerk chicken & pork on wood(you can watch them) & the sides were wonderful too. It was a great ending to a beautiful day at Blue Hole
