Once a neighborhood staple, now the fond feature of television travel shows and hot pepper aficionados everywhere, Scotchies creates the aroma of jerked pork, chicken, fish and sausage from the pimento wood grills, sunrise to sunset. Try the breadfruit, festival and yams as complimentary food groups married to the heat of the "jerk". With low prices and inexpensive beverages, you will come back to Scotchies, every time you visit Montego Bay.

Jerk chicken was excellent. The foiled steamed snapper was excellent to...good for the healthy conscious.

The food & atmosphere here are both outstanding, it's very busy but this is just a sign of how good the food is and its great value for money.

Best chicken I've ever eaten!!!! Amazing! The bartenders are friendly and attentive. The drinks are inexpensive (compared to island prices). The fried plantains are AWESOME...if you get there before they run out! I didn't try the pork, but my friends say it was amazing. The beans and rice were dry, so I'd avoid those. The mosquitos will eat you alive in Jamaica, so make sure you have bug spray!
