From the walk through the hibiscus grove-lijeentry to seeing and smelling the jerk meats roasting on huge outdoor grills, this is a real Jamaican experience. Travellers and locals frequent this place because the food is authentic and delicious.

Love Scotchies! From the covered walkway in filled with shrubbery and a pair of talkative parrots to greet you this is a well run authentic Jerk restaurant. Try it all, the jerk pork is unreal, jerk chicken is classic and really tender and juicy, and the jerk sausage must not be avoided, it's amazing and lean! The breadfruit, festival bread,... More

If you can find it... GO! Awesome REAL BBQ that tastes amazing and is totally reasonably priced. I had chicken, which was a tad dry, but still amazing, and pork (a tad fatty) and ribs, with fries and plantain - wow! All for about 12 USD. A Jamaican staple, and so tasty!

Best chicken in the world. Perfectly roasted and the taste beyond good! Not too spicy. Very tasty! The place is so authentic and comfortable. Prices are good!! The sweet potatoes is good but it was not the best part.

If there is one thing Ilike it is chicken, Scotchies never let me down. My favorite part of the meal is the festival. Cant have jerk without it. For those who like spice, there is something for you as well. Great place for a quick bite.

The place is so hidden, you may pass near it a couple of times before you find it. Avoid this situation and ask a local for references. Once you get there, you will find a very relaxed and isolated atmosphere where to enjoy your meals. Even when I don't like the concept of asking for the food in a window... More

Over & over Scotchies is a cool hangout spot that is centrally located with ample parking and great tasting Jerk dishes! Try to beat the long lines on Friday nights by going before 6 pm..because at times there is only (1) Cashier and the pay lines and serving area lines can be long and sticky with the smoke seeping all...

I love Jerk and scotches offers a wide variety of jerk meats with terrific sides. They also do pizza and fish and tastees patties. The jerk is awesome and the prices are not bad either. Love the seating arrangements except that the chairs are a bit heavy at times.

We visited Scothies Jerk Center for takeout and ordered Jerk Chicken with Rice & Peas, yams, sweet potatoes and bananas. The food was very good but they forgot to include the rice & peas.
