having read the reviews during our day trip on the island we asked our driver to take us for a late lunch, its a hidden treasure that had we been driving ourselves we would not have found.

Cool place & good value. We ate here after a trip to the Blue Hole where my daughter lost her sandals. The tables are outside in these little shelters. It was no problem. The jerk chicken is very good. The pork looks good too, if you're into that. The scotch bonnet sauce is not be missed. I wish we had... More

We decided to give the hotel food a break and revisit Scotchies, only this time our party was larger. Another great visit with some good jerk food. It's been a few years, but I think they've expanded a bit. Either way, a must when in Montego Bay.

Highly recommend eating lunch at Scotchies! Add this stop to your "must do" list if visiting Montego Bay as the food is excellent. We ate the jerk chicken and jerk pork with several different sides (festival, bammy, breadfruit, rice & peas)...all delicious! Try some of their hot sauce with scotch bonnet peppers too....wow!!

make sure you get the jerk chicken and the jerk pork. The jerk pork was pretty spicy on its own. They both had great flavor. Be careful with the jerk sauce, its spicy!!! my boyfriend poured it over his chicken and his mouth was on fire and he started to sweat. I dipped mine and it was much more enjoyable.... More

Always heard of Scotchies! But had never been there. Worth it. Affordable, traditional jerk food! Cash & Credit card accepted! Get the pepper sauce if you want some heat! We tried the chicken, pork, and festival bread. AMAZING!
