When a plate of foil wrapped food is set down in front of you, you may be taken aback, but give it a chance. Inside that foil is some of the best jerk meat, seafood, or vegetarian dishes that exist on the island of Jamaica. Scotchies is a great place for families, and is one of those places that will find you trying to make arrangements to return again.


The secret to Scotchie's success is the wood fire grill used to prepare the meats.

Scotchies is a popular bar and grill that happens to specialize in Jamaican cuisine. Most guests consider the level of formality and service here to be very casual. This eatery is open for both dinner and lunch, so make time to try it.


Scotchies is a true Jamaican jerk stand where you wait in line for your food, order from a rather small menu or offerings, then eat wherever you can find a place to park it.
