The ribs, chicken, sausage and potatoes were AMAZING. Any food cooked and consumed outdoors is an experience that will be up there as one of the greatest culinary delights. You cannot visit Montego Bay without going to Scotchies.

Spicey food may not be your thing but Scotchies is the best place to sample the local jerk pork, chicken or fish. Rustic and very well priced for lunch or dinner.

If you're looking for fancy linens and a big fancy menu, you're in the wrong place. If you're looking to experience Jamaican food at its best, in a very relaxed and laid back, non-pretentious atmosphere, then this is the place for you. We ate here twice on our 4 day trip, and the food here was the highlight of our trip. Jerk pork was so good - very flavorful. Chicken was milder, but very tasty. I had steamed snapper for one meal, served with okra and onions, and while it has a heavy fishy taste, it was excellent, perfectly cooked. We tried Bammy and Festival, and of course Red Stripe, as well as a few rum type drinks, and we were not disappointed. The staff is very friendly, our waitress took the time to explain what our options were and what the different foods were and how they were cooked. We made it a point to stop at the cooking pits on our way out to compliment the guys smoking the meats, and they were gracious, appreciative of our compliments, and took time to explain to me a little about how they smoke and cook the wonderful foods. Try it, you won't be disappointed!

The jerk chicken is excellent. I wish I had brought some back with me. I can still taste it. The yucca was good but a little overcooked.
