I bought an oder of 1/2 pork. When I got home and saw what was in the box, I immediately called as I thought a mistake was made with the order. In all fairness, the lady was quite courteous and asked me to send pictures....I did and shortly after got a message explaining that the order was indeed correct and that is the amount served for what I ordered. I was not impressed considering the price of JA$1900. Tastewise, it was good but not over the top good so overall it was not good value for money.More

The cold wrap was good. Take cash, they do accept cards but only certain ones. Wings were good but small. If you like fries make sure you get the large order.

We had a free meal from this establishment as a part of your excursion deal and sadly the food was not edible. The chicken was undercooked, rice was overcooked terrible combination.

We had jerk pork and chicken with various sides. Was very disappointing. Food was as good as on previous visits and the staff was not attentive.

We were at a popular resort and asked all the locals where to go for real authentic Jerk Chicken. Everybody for the resort to our taxi drivers recommended Scotchie's...It did not disappoint. Flavor was incredible!! Hot sauce was HOT, but kept you coming back for...more and more. One of the highlights of our trip to Jamaica for sure!More

If you go to Jamaica and don't stop at Scotchie's did you even go to Jamaica? We stopped at Scotchie's for lunch. My two teenagers split a whole chicken (1 lb) and hubby and I split 1/2 a pound of pork and chicken. We also...had sides of French fries and the rice and peas. All of it was delicious! Chicken and pork was cooked so perfectly. The fries were clearly fresh and home cut and they were absolutely delicious. Loved the Scotchie's hot sauce so much I brought a jar home, knowing I will never be able to make any chicken as well as they do, but I'm sure going to try! They take credit cards which is so handy! Prices were all in Jamaican dollars, so I wasn't really sure how much we were spending. But for the four of us plus our driver with tons of food and drinks, my credit card was charged $68. I couldn't believe how affordable it was for how much food we had! In Texas, if we'd had this many pounds of meat, it would easily have been well over $100.More

This is one of my favorite places on the globe. It’s no frills but consistently great every time. You order by the pound so if it’s your first time there be patient and listen to the person in front of you. Best jerk on the...island.More

The chicken should not be sold as jerk chicken, but as grilled chicken. The chicken is grilled to perfection but it has no seasoning except for salt. The jerk sauce is something you have to ask for and add it on yourself. This defeats the...perpose of buying jerk chicken which is supposed to be seasoned with jerk sauce. The chicken is raw because there is no seasoning to cut the rawness. If you know what real jerk chicken taste like, don't go to the one in Montego Bay. You will be very disappointed. I am told that the other Scothies that are not in the tourist area marinates and grill the chicken with the jerk seasoning. This makes a world of difference. This one does not. The jerk sauce they give you on the side is really good but very spicy.More

This food was so disgusting it was offensive. No taste of Jamaica at all. The food is tailored to tourist who know nothing about Jamaican food. Literally the worst meal I had my whole trip, no flavour, taste or authenticity. Jerk chicken and you can’t...smell it nor do they have jerk barrels. Literally a waste of time and money. YuckMore

This restaurant was absolutely unique. The vibe and atmosphere was so relaxing. The restaurant was centered around garden-type huts. Scotchies Restaurant would be able to accommodate, whether you had a large or small group. The food was delicious and fresh. I loved the way the...meat was cooked in a outside pit that cooked the food over a wood burning oven, It was just beautiful. I would highly recommend visiting Scotchies, were they have the best Jerk Chicken in Jamaica!More

Scotchies is the place for outstanding Jerk chicken, but the Jerk Pork is something else. Try the festivals too, and wash it all down with some Red Stripe.
