We read al the reviews about Scotchie's as the best place for jerk chicken and pork. We tried it and this one in Ochie is better, and not nearly as far away! Scotchie's is at St. Ann's Bay, not Ochie, despite what is shown on Trip Advisor's map. The Ocho Rios Jerk Centre [the proper spelling] is across the street from Turtle River Park- the back side of the Taj Mahal shopping center on the west end of Ochie. It is on the non-ocean side of the main Highway A3, though the road is known at this point as DaCosta Drive as it goes thru Ochie. We did take out and ate in. Staff was very nice. Not a high end place--it's locals. 1/4 chicken is $350 JM; 1/2 is $600 JM as I recall. Pork was the same as I recall--but we liked the chicken better.

The food was very average, fast and indifferent. Pork was fatty and boney, chicken was not great and ribs were tough and inedible. Perhaps it was a bad day at the Center!

If you want to go out of the complex and listen to old skool music this is one place I would recommend,we went with some friends who live in JA,didn't go out until 10-30pm and got home at approx 04-30,great atmosphere and music ,pluds the food is not to shabby either.
Best of all it is free entry.

The soup is always good but the price of the food is too high for the location and the atmosphere.you can also wait here for the knuxford express to kingston and montego bay. just a two minutes walk to the ruins for a better deal.

Price is GREAT and so is the food. We can pork and chicken many times at this place. People are friendly and it's all outdoor seating.
