Visited Scotchies several times and I must say it is one of the better jerks I have had. The jerk pork is my favorite with lots of pepper. I highjly recommend Scotchies if you visit Jamaica.

Good jerk chicken and nice roast fish or steam fish. Casual after beach eating. The wait is sometimes long but food is good.

I've had enough jerk in my lifetime to say Scotchie's make good jerk, especially the chicken, but by no means is it the best. The ambience is nice there too, laid-back and cool. The one thing I didn't like is having to join a line...More
