“A good ole Jamaican BBQ joint!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

It felt like being in the Texas hill country. Walk through the smokehouse. See the meats. Walk to the table. Everything on the menu was fantastic. But don't miss the jerked pork and the scotch bonnet sauce.

“Great local food”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

We've been to the original location (between Falmouth and Montego Bay) and to the one near Ocho Rios, and both were equally good. I prefer the Montego Bay area one just because it's breezier there. The chicken and fish are by far my favorite, but I've had the pulled pork and the chicken sausage, and they were good as well. You can watch them cook (at least at the Ocho location) which is interesting. Everything is grilled lying on charred poles of pimento wood and covered with sheets of corrugated metal to keep in the heat. The smoky flavor is amazing! This is where the locals eat as well, so even though it may be full of tourists, it's authentic Jamaican food, not some Americanized place who's menu caters to tourist's tastes. A trip to Jamaica isn't complete without a visit to Scotchies!
