Scotchies is a great take away spot or dine inn restaurant, which serves Jerk chicken, BBq chicken and a variety of side dishes. Food is tasty and reasonable priced, suitable for all the family as you can request how mild or hot you want your chicken.

Order at the window, collect it at the grill, seat yourself in the open-air dining area. Food is decent, bathrooms are fair, at best. Glad we went once, no real desire to go back.

Good ambiance and even better food. Staff needs a bit of training though. I have been there more than once and will be going back.
