We spent $5.00us each way to get to scotchie's for a $9.00us 1/2 chicken . The service is very slow and serves the locals first . Even the local's who jump the queue get served first . The services sucks and to top it all off , my Jerk Chicken is better . Save your $$$ and go anywhere else... More

We were told of this spot for authentic jerk and it did not disappoint. The process for which it is made is open to watch and it was amazing to see.

Great food at a very reasonable price. Highlight of my stop in Ocho Rios! the Jerk Chicken was great, the atmosphere was great and the views amazing. Very friendly staff, and the guys chopping the meat were very friendly and fun! the "resident cat" joined us for lunch as well. All in all, a very fun experience!

The Jerk Chicken, bammy, festival and beer were excellent. I can tell why Natives and travelers like to go there as it is a very popular spot. No waitress but we survived.

This is a casual chicken shack, but the grounds are lawns and picnic tables under shade that add to the "local" vibe and make the food taste even better. This delicious chicken will be a dish our family tries to recreate at home for many years to come. The sides weren't especially amazing, but the chicken was amazing! If there... More

My friends loved the chicken, I got the pork which was dry. The yams were tasteless also. I got the rice and peas and they were good. Fun spot. No wifi. Worth checking out if you can get there but I would not go out of my way to go there. Staff is very friendly.

We went to Scotchie's at the end of our day trip to 9-Mile/Bob Marley Mausoleum. Scotchie's is a jerk shack. You stand in line and choose from a simple a la carte menu. We had the chicken, rice and beans, BBQ'd and smoked on an outdoor grill. They cut it up right in front of you. The "jerk" sauce at... More
