We really enjoy the local vibe, smoky jerky food, just tried basically everything in the menu and loved it. We stop by this place 3 out of 5 days.

We loved the atmosphere and food during our recent lunch. The jerk chicken and sauce was amazing. Restrooms were clean and service was great.

We went here in July and they have outside seating in tiki like huts with fans and even though it was hot outside, we were not hot in the huts. The jerk pork and jerk chicken were so flavorful!! They also charge the same to...locals as they do tourists, so that was a bonus. We would definitely come back!!More

Possibly the best known and arguably the best her shack on the island. We always have the Jerk Chicken with sweet potato. It is truly wonderful. The food is prepared where you can watch if you can stand the heat. Prices are reasonable. What could...be better. Great food-reasonably priced.More

A very entertaining and relaxing place to pause the adventure and refresh. Under the direction of our advisor and driver Errol Bowen a special person was provided and experience that was enjoyable. The venue was clean and accommodating. The jerk pork,chicken, etc, & drinks and...then we took scenery photos. Our adventure also took us to pudding Vendor, rafting on the white river. Thanks Errol.More

We stopped at Scotchies for lunch after a morning at Dunn’s River falls so naturally we had worked up a appetite. The food and prompt service was to die for. When we entered you can actually see the jerk being smoked to perfection and when...the chicken and jerk pork arrived to the table it certainly lived up to our expectations! The pina colada and daiquiri was well blended. The festival was a delicious pastry made of dough that resembled a hush puppy in taste. All in all we’d go back over and over if we could!More

Authentic Jamaican food cooked their way and it can not be matched!! I usually never finish any meal but when I go to Scotchies I don’t leave anything on my plate!!

Jamaicans are so good at cooking. I have travelled to many Caribbean countries but Jamaica has the best food.

The food was good, however the portion sizes are small compared to the price you are paying for the meal. The line was so looooooong and it was so hoooot, I will only come here again if they order ahead as the wait was ridiculous.
