“awesome food”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

I had jerk chicken, fry breadfruit, and roast yam, it was great, non greasy, and just over all great, great family dinning, clean, and the workers are friendly, when I went there i was extremely hungry when i left i was extremely full. This restaurant is a must try, for anyone going to JA, the food was tasty, i seriously did not have any compain.

“Excellent jerk chicken and more at a reasonable price”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Scotchie's is a must try while in Jamaica for the best jerk chicken, pork, non-greasy sausage (but full of flavor) and great sides. It is sort of a hole-in-the-wall and I mean that in a very good way. You get to see the huge bbq pits/smokers as you are ordering and it is very laid back and relaxing. We tried a little bit of everything on the menu and loved it. Courtney Taylor Tours is a very safe, fun and reasonably priced way to get to Scotchie's and any other places that you would like to see while in any part of Jamaica. We felt very safe with him and he is very reliable.

“Nice way to complete the Jamaican experience”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

We went there to have lunch as part of our private tour during our cruise stop. It may be touristy but the jerk chicken is just delicious - if you do not like spicy food I would recommend to mention it when ordering. The place is a garden so just take pictures, sit, enjoy the jerk chicken with a red stripe

“Touristy but good”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here. Personally, I thought the Jerk chicken at our resort was every bit as good as Scotchie's. This place was fine as was the food, but portions were small.
