We were out for a day trip with Reggae Tours and we asked him to take us to Scotchies so we worked it into our travels. It was close to one of our stops, and we were hungry! This “authentic Jamaican Jerk Experience” was something else! As soon as Sheldon pulled up the van we noticed it was double parking... More

Our tour driver took us here for lunch. It has amazing jerk chicken and a fun atmosphere. I can't wait to return to Jamaica and eat here again.

The jerk sauce was extra spicy just like I like it, but the chicken was to die for! Yum! I also had the chicken sausage which was delicious too, aside from a few unexpected bones. the service was fast and pleasant. I highly recommend this place!

First time in Jamaica, and first visit to Scotties, unbelievable Jerk Chicken and Pork, we had the whole chicken, 1lb Pork and rice and peas for 4, OMG one of the best meals I've had, staff very friendly and the guys cooking the food really made the evening. Whenever I'm back in Jamaica, my first stop will be Scotties.

We'd been to Scotchies in Ocho Rios and loved it. The Mo Bay location is just as good! Had jerk pork & festival, with Ting. Go. You won't regret it!
