You can't go to Jamaica and and not eat Jerk chicken/pork! Scotchies is a well loved island hot spot for both locals and visitors on vacation. The food is delicious, cooked in a traditional way under large corrugated iron sheets, which you can see. Great food, good service a must place to visit!

Scotchies is good food that caters to tourists. They serve jerk pork, jerk chicken and fish. The usual Jamaican food. Forget the meats and concentrate on the potato pudding.

I took the advice of some of the locals as well as a few reviews on Trip Advisor. I had the jerk chicken and jerk pork with a side of festival bread.

THE PLACE to get your jerk. Jerk gets its heat or spiciness and some of its flavor from the scotch bonnet pepper... It's in the name so it's gotta be good! But really, It's great! And i owe it all to the man, Sheldon for getting me there! Thanks a million and much respect, General! Dakota Woods

We stopped off and got jerk Chicken, Pork, and Festivals for lunch. It was incredibly good. It was the best chicken I've ever eaten. Be VERY careful with the sauce though. It is incredibly hot.
