I took a friend to "Scotty's on 21" to celebrate her birthday. Not only did we have a wonderful meal, but the service and ambiance were outstanding! The restaurant is attractively decorated and quite comfortable. Our waitress was extremely pleasant, knowledgeable and took care of our every need. The gentleman who cleared the table was exceptionally courteous and was interested in hearing about the many years that my friend and I have been celebrating special occasions together. Our meal was served beautifully and was most delicious. I would recommend Scotty's on 21 for casual dining as well as for celebrating a birthday, anniversary or other special event.

The food is always delicious. The server seemed to be rushed with bringing out our meal. He did not check back with our table regularly. Although the restaurant was not very crowded, everyone seemed to be seated in the same area so the noise level was high. We were a party of 2 and our table was next to a very loud table of 5 people. Service could be improved.

Both of had the onion soup and both agreed it was terrible! It wars lukewarm. The cheese wasn’t melted and was the consistency was like plastic. It couldn’t be cut with a spoon. The broth had little taste. However it had something it it that burned our throats. Our waIter was wonderful and asked if we’d like something else and then comped our bill.
When we ate there before the food was wonderful.

The food was a little cold, the drinks were okay, my boyfriend had two different mixed drinks that weren’t properly mixed. The couple sitting behind us never got their drinks. It seemed like the staff was short. The meatball appetizer was delicious!

I recommend this restaurant if you live nearby and want an average meal for a reasonable price. I don't live near so I wouldn't rush back.

This was our first visit and we’ll definitely be back! Server was extremely professional and made my husband’s birthday Bourbon (he doesn’t care for desserts) special by putting a candle upright on a plate to top the glass! She even started the birthday song... just a great treat.

We had dinner here in February and decided to try again. They did not disappoint. So glad to try their new power bowl entrees. So delicious and in line with clean eating. My husband had chicken parmigiana and loved it. He is very particular about his chicken parmigiana. Service was great. Hoping this place stays because we love it.

Scotty's has a pretty standard menu. The food was good as was the service, but a large boisterous party was seated directly behind us during our meal that interfered with conversation. Since the party's table was set when we were seated and was obviously expected, the staff should have sat us at a table farther away from that crowd to begin with. There were other tables available, and another table of 4 was able to move before their food was served.

Very disappointed in our visit to Scotty’s. The food was the biggest disappointment. One diner had French onion soup — the cheese was in a big tough clump in the middle of the bowl and there weren’t enough onions. Two diners split an order of fried calamari which were over cooked and hard to chew. One diner had bbq ribs which were passable but not great. Another had a Reuben sandwich which was so-so — greasy bread and dry corned beef. The third diner had a salmon pasta special — very bland and flavorless. On the bright side — we liked the feel and decor of the place; the cocktails before dinner were excellent and our server was very friendly, diligent and graciously accommodating to our requests.

It’s in a strip mall so its very deceiving from the outside. The inside atmosphere is warm and inviting, but what makes this place special is the Food! Everything we ate was amazing. The other plus was the waitstaff. They were very friendly and attentive. It seemed like they actually cared about the restaurant’s success and were proud to work there. I would definitely make the a regular spot for dining.
