Hotel Scotchies, Montego Bay Reviews

  • We stopped here on the way back from a bamboo rafting excursion and had an excellent lunch. I had the pork and sausage and my husband had the chicken. We also tried the festival and steamed veggies. Everything was excellent but we both loved the pork the most. I highly recommend the green spicy yummy! The seating is outdoors and they have a bar. There is shade for each table and it was very relaxing and comfortable even though it was road side. They have a couple of TV's for sports. There is take out and sit down. They accept credit cards!

  • Their jerk chicken is probably the best there is in the parish of St. James! The only thing better than it was what my friend (chef) made himself on a beach day, but I digress. The jerk chicken is not overcooked like other establishment's (looking at you Jerky's), the yams, potatoes, vegetables, everything is all good. The pricing is pretty fair for the most part. The seating and decor is standard for a hut-styled eating area. In summary you won't regret it at all.

  • Best Jamaican jerk chicken on the island. This place does it right. Great sauces. Decent drink selection. Very good smokey flavor.

  • We went there as a larger group. There was plenty of seats in a semi private area. Total sites were about 50, including the bar. As I walked in one of the grill men gave me a sample of pork straight from the grill. It was a great bite and was excited about the meal. We ordered a variety of meat and and sides. Unfortunately most of the meats we ordered were dry and over cooked. It was such a contrast to the bite I had as I walked in. Not sure if it was because we were a group, but definitely a bit disappointed. The sides were also hit or miss. The favorite thing we had there were the 'festival' (cornbread fritters) and the sauces with the meat. Would not recommend the rice and peas (beans). TL;DR - meat is good if you have it straight from the grill, go with the festival as your side.

  • Fantastic place for hanging with friends. Have a drink, eat a steam fish or have some chicken or pork. Atmosphere and the staffs make it so welcoming.
