It's worth the stop. The food was delicious. We ordered soup, jerk pork and jerk chicken. The soup was amazing. The jerk chicken was on point. My boyfriend loved the jerk pork.

Love the ambiance. I have been there many times with colleagues, friends, and my boyfirend. They never fail to please. I have also been to a live Appleton show and was very pleased. It is good food and good company but it is always packed...so you may want to call ahead.More

Order the jerk wings, chicken sausage and rum punch! Be careful - the jerk sauce they give you in the squeeze bottle is spicy but ooohh sooo good!!

This restaurant was recommended to us by our friend from Best Travel Jamaica. The location is beautiful. Omg!! The sunset was lovely. This location is very romantic. The food was excellent. We had the red snapper and a chicken dish. The drinks were on point....Make your way here when visiting the island. You won't be disappointed. 😊More

What a horrible stop, put a cloud over our whole day. Never seen a restaurant work so hard to be so rude. We were hungry and our driver offered to take us here. Every driver always mentions this place and is always trying to take...you to Scotchie’s when you mention you are hungry (probably get a kickback). We walked in and everything looked great. Went up to the counter with a friendly smile and said to the young lady at the counter, “good afternoon how are you?” She just stared at me with a disgusted look on her face. I glanced around confused, saw two other women standing behind the counter staring me down not saying anything. Again I said, “Hello, how are you?” They all just continued staring at us like I had just insulted them. I had my whole family of 5 in there, we immediately felt uncomfortable and were left to flounder in front of the scowls while they all remained silent. They obviously didn’t want us there, didn’t answer our questions and it really ruined our whole afternoon. With the state of their economy and lack of tourist at the moment, you would think they would welcome a 5 top coming in hungry. If this were my business I would be mortified. WAY better food available all over the place, I would skip this oneMore

We went to Scoochie's after Dunn's river falls, dew minutes away. One of the best roast pork even. The jerk chickens was a little dry, but the pork was well worth it. A must have if you visit Jamaica.

During a short shopping spree in downtown Montego Bay, we stopped by Scotchie's for a quick lunch. The food and drinks were very good and we enjoyed our stop.

Always stop for Jerk pork, chicken sausage and festivals when we arrive in Montego Bay on way to Ocho Rios. The Best!!’

Not that I’m aware of and no, it’s not great. Not sure why all the Jerk is so dry and flavorless. This is the end of the island where it all started. I’ve had better roadside jerk in negril.
