We were in Jamaica on a cruise so our time was limited. This is a must stop if you love Jerk chicken. They know what they are doing and will not disappoint. The jerk pork was really good too. Make sure to order the rice and peas along with your meal and an ice cold Ting.

Our tour guide stopped us here one day after leaving Ochos Rios and I'm so glad he brought us here. The food was great and it was awesome to eat authentic Jamaican cuisine.

The best jerk in the area! Although the staff could be a bit friendlier... I enjoyed the ambience..the smells..and the chicken.

We went in June with our tour guide right after arriving at the Montego Bay airport. We ordered a full jerk chicken with rice and beans. Ting. And of course Red Stripe. The outdoor eating area was really cool and the staff were extremely friendly. Its located right across from the ocean. I can NOT WAIT to be back here!

It's ok I guess... if you're a tourist who isn't used to good Jamaican food! The jerk is very salty, however the festival is amazing! They have a quick takeaway service which works well. The seating area is also quite cool and has a nice vibe. But again, it's for the tourists...

I could rave on and on about the Chicken, the Pork, the sauce, the Festival. This place is simply some of the best food that I've ever had anywhere. Period. It is well worth the stop. We ate like royalty for 5 people including alcoholic drinks for $55 bucks. We over tipped the waitress and begged her to go hug... More

Booked a day trip with Phil Lafayette (awesome and highly recommend Phil) to the "Blue Hole". Afterwards, Phil took us to Scotchies. Food and atmosphere is pure Jamaica.

Had dinner at Scotchies based on the recommendation of our concierge at Secrets St James - and we weren't disappointed. Great place to go for authentic Jamaican jerk (many choices), other Jamaican dishes, and fresh fish. Rustic atmosphere. Glad we went!
