Stopped in for a quick bite en route from our all-inclusive luxury hotel to downtown MBJ for shopping. Easily the most memorable meal we had in Jamaica. We had jerk chicken, wings, jerk pork, seafood soup, and festival (fried bread sticks?). Every dish was great. The staff was friendly, and to see (and smell) the cooking pits was very interesting. Extremely casual dining at its road-side best!

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. Great meal and story to share!

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

Aug 2017. Yummy! Loved the chicken cooked on an open fire. Locals all wanted to know where we were from. Friendly staff.
