This is a Montego Bay MUST DO. The pork, chicken, sausage are all fantastic. Sometimes there are daily specials like ribs and soups which you cant miss either. Make sure to get a cold beer to cool off your palate and don't forget to try the fantastic pepper!

We ate at Scotchie's as recommended by our tour guide. I am so glad we did. Good food and is set back from the road. You would not know you are next to a road once you pass through their gates. It has flower bushes and tress with tables spread both in little rustic gazebos and also under tress. Great... More

We were here yesterday after a couple of good trips to bob marley house and dunns river. We stopped here with our tour guide on way back to hotel. Food was great, nice place to sit and good prices. Will be back.

Really unique, funky place where they grill chicken, pork, burgers and suasage covered with metal corrugated roofing. Pretty unusual! No table service. Instead, you order at the counter, fast-food style. Tasty down-home Jamaican fare in a quaint setting, a thoroughly memorable experience. Besides the succulent meats they have some excellent side dishes. Good cole slaw, too. Hubby wanted to go... More

My family and I unexpectedly visited the restaurant on a Friday night. Our waitress Valencia was very friendly and attended to or large group of 16. Food was delicious. Everything was on point. The drinks were great. I go there every trip I make to Jamaica

This was a welcome treat after doing Dunns River and the Blue hole. According to our driver the place wasn't as busy as it normally is but seemed packed to me! We ate at the bar (definitely have their rum punch made with over proof rum) We ordered the jerk pork, sweet potato, festivals and rice and Peas! It was... More

I have been home from Jamaica a total of 6 months and still crave the chicken, beans and rice. The sauce they make to put on there is amazing too.

Its all about the sauce. Went to Jamaica for local foods. Was told for authentic Jerk pork and chicken scotchies was the way to go. It doesn't look like much but the food is amazing. If you like spicy then its for you. A little more expensive than we had anticipated but the food is worth the price. I would... More

As they say when in Rome! So after coming from shopping at Landmark, we wanted something local. Our driver suggested Scotchie's and we were not disappointed. Enjoyed the spiciness of both the Jerk Chicken & Pork. Will definitely recommend.

Thank Rayford T
