“Great Jerk Chicken”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

Asked the locals while I was in Montego Bay at Secrets St. James where the best Jerk was, and all of them unanimously said Scotchies...Ended up going with a local to try it out, and it was great. Chicken was flavorful and extremely tender, and the dipping sauce was spicy, but still with great flavor as well...Definitely recommend a try while you are there...

“yum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

shared a 1/4 chicken and a 1/4 pork between me and my boyfriend. Also got festival, rice and red stripe. The pork was much juicer then the chicken and the festival was very good! Good prices, good food, good atmosphere.

“Best Jerk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013

This was the first restaurant we stopped at in Montego Bay. We tried the jerk chicken, pork, beef and fish along with rice & peas and festival. My favorite was the jerk fish. The staff was very friendly and the price was reasonable. The outdoor dining area was very nice with bamboo type canopies. I highly recommend Scotchies Restaurant!!

“Disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013 via mobile

The chicken was more like baked chicken to me, it definitely wasn't jerk. I wouldn't go back here. This is a spot where hotels send tourist, I've had much better in alternate local spots in Mobay

“This is the FIRST place I STOP, when I arrive to Mobay!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

The staff is great!!! They have the best Jerk Chicken in Mobay!! I enjoy rice and peas, festival, and my many Pina Colada's. The waitress' are spectacular and so nice!!! I absolutely love them all. This is a must for anyone that vacations in Mobay. The atmosphere is very relaxing. The food is resonably priced, and the taste fantastic. I will continue to patronize this restaurant. I go eat at this restaurant daily. I cannot wait to see the women bartenders in January 2014.
