“Must return!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Last year was my 24th visit to Jamaica but my first to Scotchies.....boy have I missed out on some fantastic local jerk chicken. A definite return with every visit from that point forward. One week and counting....can't wait. Outside eating, definitely for the locals but a lot of tourists starting to visit. It is wonderful!! The sauce is hot but the taste is amazing....just grab another drink or two. Nice bar, very attentive, less expensive than other places and good.

“Simple Perfection”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

If you find yourself in Montego Bay with a grumbling tummy, find a taxi driver and tell him to take you to Scotchies for some Jamaican Jerk. Located on the A1 just down the road from the airport, this unassuming roadside shack has some of the best jerk chicken and pork you'll ever find. This isn't some tourist trap either. You'll be eating with the locals at prices you'll not find at the nearby resorts. If you're a foodie like me and love any sort of meat that has spent quality time over smoke and flame, Scotchies needs to be part of your visit to Jamaica.

“Jerk Pork.. OMG!!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Right price - phenomenal taste! Great outdoor ambiance as the food is prepared out in the open. Washed it down with some alcohol and I was in heaven. Almost bit my fingertips! The steamed fish and jerk chicken are also good but the jerk pork was the standout.
