Get every appetizer on the menu and two kinds of meat, plus two drinks for less than US $20. The food is legit and the bar & grill is right on the beach, giving it a cool vibe.

Sorry can't get song out of my head when I think of Scotchies. Band was playing as we were drinking our Red Stripe..

Jerk chicken? Good could have been moister and a little spicier
Red Stripe? Cold
Band? Fun
Weather? Warm
Pumpkin Soup? Spicy and to die for.
Presentation? Really? Wrapped up in tin foil? We were eating it there.

Only 5 minutes away from the Jewel/Riu resorts. Get a cab and grab some great food! The jerk pork was amazing (and I'm not a pork fan). Half a chicken, 1/4 lb of pork, some rice and beans and two beers were $20.

Scotchies is a really cute Jamaican restaurant. A lot of tourists come here so I'm glad to say we have been there. I did find the chicken to be pretty dry and kinda flavorless. The prices are great and its really neat to see how they make jerk chicken here. Beware of the really spice sauce. I would try it again although it was a big bland.

We were on a shopping excursion to Ocho Rios and our driver recommended Scotchie’s as a great place for some authentic Jamaican food. We were there on a weekday and the place was very busy. It's all outdoors, with a Jamaican village theme and huge barbecue fires roasting jerk chicken, pork and fish. You order everything a la carte and it's quite delicious. It's set back a bit off the road and not signed well but make sure you go if visiting Ocho Rios. You haven't experienced Jamaican Jerk food until you visit Scotchies. And the price is very reasonable.
