Our group of twelve needed a quick lunch between excursions and everyone around suggested Scotchie’s. The jerk chicken and pork along with the rice and beans were all delicious! An outdoor walk up order and watching everything cook on the open logs was very cool. You shouldn’t miss Scotchie’s for lunch if you are in the area for a traditional Jamaican meal.

Always enjoyed my visits to scotchies! Delicious authentic jerked pork and chicken with equally delicious side dishes. Loved the roasted breadfruit! Very cosy open seating with the nice fresh air hitting you as you eat!

We had lunch at the scotchies jerk restaurant while porting in Jamaica. We loved the flavor of the jerk chicken, very tastey and not too spicy. You can add additional spice which went very well with the flavor of the chicken.

It is an open air restaurant, and they use wood to jerk the chicken rather than a grill, definitely authentic. Prices were pretty good also and the servings were in good portions.

I went to Scotchie's as it was recommended it would be an authentic experience. The look and feel of the place was definitely roots-like, authentic in terms of decor and service interaction (usual laid back Jamaican style) but not sure the food was at the quality I thought it would be in terms of taste. I had Jerk chicken with rice and peas (not warm enough - pot temperature), Jerk wasn't spicy enough. Beware the mosquitos especially if you go at night. Make sure you spray.
good value - price wise anyway.
