A must visit if you are in the area. Especially on Thursday because they only have ribs on Thursdays.

This place was recommended for the best tasting jerk ever! Oh boy, were they right. The jerk pork was to die for, the chicken was good too. Loved watching them cook the jerk over the pepper tree trunks. What a beautiful thing! and so good....More

Our tour guide brought us here after Dunn’s falls. Great chicken for sure by a very busy place. Good prices and we sat under a cabana to be shaded from the sun. Have to do Scotchie’s at least once!

Average jerk chicken, average service, high prices. This is a typical tourist trap and I would avoid!

We ate here during an excursion and I was not very impressed. The only sauce they had for the chicken must have been made with habaneras....it was unbearable. None of the sides were any better. The atmosphere was decent which is why I’m giving it...More

Not the best thing to do if you are not from there and use to walking the roads. No one will harm you but there are no sidewalks. You can get hit by a car easily.
