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.
