I don't know if it was an off day but the food was bland and undercooked. The portion was not worth the money. Heard all the hype about this place and was so disappointed. Don't recommend.

This place makes really, really good food. The food in Jamaica is delicious and Scotchies has some of the best jerk around. We love going as a family to enjoy some great local food with some local beer.
