The rustic, thatched-roof venue of Scotchies offers a large variety of Jamaica's signature jerk and other grilled dishes. Pick your meat, pair them up with some tasteful sides, and enjoy the vibe and hustle that characterizes this place at any hour of the day.


Jamaica’s cuisine is just as exciting as the country itself: jerk dishes, where a meat of your choice is sprinkled with a unique combination of spices (also called jerk), are headliners on every restaurant’s menu — and are only the beginning. Seafood and oxtail are also a staple here, and thanks to the presence of many different cultures, so are Indian, Chinese, and Italian culinary experiences.
