Be sure to stop by for the jerk chicken--fantastic--we always do take out one day for lunch and it is wonderful. Also the bakery next door has the absolute best patties---be sure to get the beef with chees---takes lunch to the next level!!

My group ordered dinner from Scotchies including Jerk Chicken, Jerk Pork, Steamed Fish, Festival, sweet potatoes, rice and peas, etc. and everything was spectacular. The bar was fun and you will meet all sorts of people at this local hot spot for food!!

If you are craving Jerk chicken or pork this is the best place to get it. We sent our hotel staff to get it for us and we wished we had ordered more. Next time that will be my first stop!

We visited Scotchies while going on a tour of the island. A taxi may be a little expensive to just take you there and back.

As a precaution I would make a reservation for a group that size, as it's a popular eatery and you could end up with a short wait... however, they do have a bar also. Hope this is of help!! (Herbie)

The Hyatt is in Montego Bay on the main road so you would pass Scotchies on the way from the airport to your hotel. It’s probably 10 mins max from your hotel.
