Can’t beat a scotchies meal. Not always fast service but it is a pit stop for locals and tourists alike. iLife you catch them at a busy time. Relax and enjoy. The wait is worth wile.

Totally authentic and a really cool experience. I've never been a "jerk" fan -- but I've never had cooking in Jamaica and it completely changed my opinion. Check this place out and you'll see how they prepare the food over charcoal on sweet wood and...More

Our day guide suggested Scotchies for a late lunch and, man, did it deliver. Not only was the food absolutely delicious (most tender and flavorful jerk chicken we had on the island!), we thoroughly enjoyed witnessing the cooking process while our order was being filled....More

Luckily for us, this place was only a 10 minute walk from our hotel. The jerk chicken was amazing and the prices for the food and drink were really reasonable. Nice atmosphere with a mixture of locals and travellers. Has lots of shaded areas too

One of the best jerk chicken places in Jamaica; however, the rum ribs are the best item on the menu. Whenever I’m in MBJ area I have to get some

We visited Scotchies while going on a tour of the island. A taxi may be a little expensive to just take you there and back.

As a precaution I would make a reservation for a group that size, as it's a popular eatery and you could end up with a short wait... however, they do have a bar also. Hope this is of help!! (Herbie)

The Hyatt is in Montego Bay on the main road so you would pass Scotchies on the way from the airport to your hotel. It’s probably 10 mins max from your hotel.
