Jerk Chicken and Pork jerked over pimento wood. Chicken and Pork season to the bone with the island best herbs, pepper and other seasonings. A finger licking treat for all visitors a place to visit.

Good hang out to stop over and have a bite to eat. Ambiance was good although the tables were a bit close. Animals were around, which could be improved. The food was good. Would go back

Scotchies is perhaps more well known on the North Coast. They are a good jerk hut. Both for locals and tourists you get what you expect from a Jamaican restaurant. It is authentic and well proced.

This is a place I visit quite regularly for jerked chicken and pprk. The food is good, sometimes great but quality needs to be more consistent. Goodo ambiance for a casual setting.

Using TripAdvisor, I went here with a colleague and we both enjoyed the local Jerk cooked food. Really rustic and informal! As you arrive into the "restaurant" you place your order at the first window (that looks more like a bus or train ticket office) on the right then take your ticket to the next counter a little ways on...
