I guarantee that you are getting the real deal when you visit Scotchies. Hands down the best jerk pork and chicken I've ever had. The bar in the back has the best rum punch too.

Visited Scotchies to try what I hear was one of the best Jerk restaurants in montego bay, the Festival bread was great, the food was good but was expecting some more intense flavor. Still good just not great.

Great local food served in tin foil. The festival is to die for , the jerk pork was good although the chicken was a bit dry. They were out of rice and peas which was a shame. All washed down with Red Stripe, a good price too.

This place really left us disappointing. Food is not bad, and the atmosphere is certainly Jamaican, however we are clueless why this place is number 1 of all the Jamaican restaurants. There are so many great Jerk Chicken locations on the road from Montego Bay down to Ocho Rios, which service for less. The place is not bad but there... More

This restaurant was no frills but great food. We had a group of ten people and we ordered the jerk chicken and pork as well as the sausage and everything was great.

Our tour guide suggested Scotchies for lunch. It was an excellent choice. We enjoyed the paradise roll and jerk chicken. Prices were not expensive. Not a fancy place but enjoyed the food and had great service.

I asked my tour guide to rake me to the best restaurant in Jamaica. And this was the spot. I had the jerk chicken and I would buy another plane ticket just for this place. Unforgettable. Delicious. Friendly helpful staff.
