Tasty food and nice little stop on our way from Ocho Rios to Kingston. Interesting way of cooking on logs with metal sheeting on top, nice smokey taste to the meat!

I've visited a couple of the scotchies locations and what seems to be consistent, is their jerk chicken is reallly goooood! Not a big fan of the jerk pork. I still believe you get that good as regular street food. But omg, everything else here is pretty much tasty and the atmosphere is really unique sitting on wooden benches around... More

Firstly, the cashier was too busy talking to her friend to acknowledge me, so I waited until they were through to place my order. The cashier made me feel as if I were a bother while placing my order. The servers also were busy talking instead of working- giving me the food in a timely manner. The food was not... More

Want authentic Jamaican food? Head to Scotchies. Was concerned about the spiciness but they will put the spice sauce on the side. Both the chicken and beef were excellent.

Recently visited Scotchie's in Ocho Rios with my friends. This place comes highly recommended but it was a big let down. They need to learn how to do proper jerk. Some staff members need more training in customer service. Would not recommend this place which is a shame as it seems a lot of tourists are taken to it.
