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

I was on my way to the Airport in Montego Bay when I decided to stop at Scotchies for Jerk Pork, Jerk Chicken and Festivals. The food was tasty. I recommend Scotchies to any visitor to Jamaica who wants to taste authentic jerk food.

Be sure to stop by for the jerk chicken--fantastic--we always do take out one day for lunch and it is wonderful. Also the bakery next door has the absolute best patties---be sure to get the beef with chees---takes lunch to the next level!!

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.
