“Great Jerk!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Simple menu, great prices and best of all delicious. Service was a bit slow, but worth it. Our party had the pork and chicken. Even without the sauce, the flavor of the meat was delicious. The staff was great too. They were all so happy.

“Lunch at Scotchies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

Just finished lunch at Scotchies... The previous reviews do not do it justice! From the outside it looks like any other jerk stand on the main highway... once you are inside that's a different story. Well stocked bar, attentive wait staff, & cold Red Stripe. Seating consists of wooden benches and old beer kegs (with cushions on top), our order was taken, and delivered quickly even though it was busy.... lunch consisted of a whole chicken, 1/2 Lb of pork, rice and beans and a sweet potato and a couple of drinks all for $37 US (we did not feel ripped off)
I would recommend this place to anyone in the area

“Best Jerk on the Island!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

The pork is the best! Watch out, it is spicy! Great festivals, too. Nice casual atmosphere. It's cool to watch the chef's in the kitchen literally smoking the meat in front of you. The green sauce is delish but very hot!

“Excellent traditional jerk chicken and pork!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

The resturant is an outdoor with shade and ice cold Red Stripe! The chicken, pork, chicken and pork suasage is AMAZING! This is the place that the locals go to. Very easy to place your order and they are used to tourist and take US money.
