Good Jamaican jerk food, friendly quick service. It was interesting seeing the cooking set up. A few cats wandering around, but they didn’t bother us at all - and that seems to be the norm in Jamaica. Scotchie’s is a bit of a Jamaican institution,...More

Stopped here for lunch while on a day tour. Great selection of food to try. Jerk chicken was super. Food cooked the old way, on open fires. Comfortable seating areas - in the shade which was very welcome.

Jerk chicken the same way as 50 years ago. No ovens, just an open fire pit...with a huge grill on it. So flavourful! Home cooking Jamaican style! YUM!!!

We were taken here by our local Jamaican tour guide. We really enjoyed the food and the experience of genuine Jamaican jerk chicken would highly recommend.

The food is excellent. We had the jerk chicken and pork. Both are excellent. There are restrooms on site. Just don’t expect any friendly service. Come here for the food only.
