Went for supper on a Tuesday. The prices are good and the food is AWESOME. Had the jerk pork and fish fillet. Both seasoned impeccably. The festival is so good. Everything arrived piping hot within 10 minutes. This is a great place.

Enjoyed excellent jerk chicken and festival for dinner at Scotchies. As you're waiting to place your order you can watch the jerk chicken and pork on the grill as it's being cooked and prepared. A great place to dine out with friends.

If you have to go to a scotchies, the Montego Bay one is the better of the two. But if you want authentic jerk and not a watered down tourist version there are better places. The chicken soup is great though.

Scotchies also known as pepperwood has the most tender and tastey jerk chicken and jerk pork. This was my second visit there and they did not disappoint.

Scotchies is nice for business as well as personal lunches. I also did a family reunion dinner there. We used adjacent booths and some chairs between them. Worked out good. The food selections covered everyone except vegetarians, who only were able to eat sides. However,...More
