We stopped to Scotchie's thank goodness on a Tuesday. Ribs are in Tuesday's they were awesome. The pork was not ready when we stopped so we missed that but chicken and fish was also good. Ribs are the BEST !!!!

Loved the jerk chicken! Considering the amount of patrons, they provided good customer service and seating was great too. A must visit, when you visit this beautiful island!

The side portions seemed small and there could be more options. The jerk chicken and pork were pretty good. Most tasty! Those tables and chairs were pretty cool - added to that rustic feel.

The food was GREAT! I wish i was able to bring back 20lbs of the jerk pork i had! The outside seating was a good island feel, and really loved the fresh air!

Line was very long and a even longer wait. The staff was pleasant. Be careful... Sauce was extra spicy. Food was good but not alot of bang for your buck.

Great prices and great food! The restaurant is open concept and provide gazebo for sit down. Jerk chicken was great! And they had hot sauce for those that need the extra kick.

You always see them on the travel channel and on TV shows, but to experience it first hand was awesome!. The jerk pork was something of legends lol. If you need a ride, hire Errol Bowen from Travel Jamaica Tours ( you can find him on trip advisor for info) and he will take you there!

It's really good and authentic Jamaican food. Not so hot that your head blows off but enough scotch bonnets to give it that yummy sweet heat Food is served in tin foil. Plastic forks. No knives. Only downside is flies and mosquitos. Spray before you go. Worth it though. Really authentic and tasty

The restaurant had a family feel and the food was great (order the chicken). I didn't have the sausage but my group mentioned it was a little spicy (but good). It was very hot in the restaurant (outdoor seating) even at night. So if you have a hand held fan bring it. If you find yourself sitting in a corner... More
