Scotty's on 21
Relax with one of our signature cocktails or craft beers in a comfortable club chair in our bar lounge.
Take a seat at our large granite-topped bar, visit with good friends, people watch, and keep an eye on the Big Game.
Move to a table or booth in our open contemporary dining room and enjoy a meal prepared by Chef Marcos Rea.
Scotty’s American Grill menu offers something delicious for everyone, from timeless comfort food to new American classics. Look to our wine list, dominated by California & Washington varietals, for a perfect pairing.
Join us soon. Cheers!
Half grill cheese sandwich was below par.
But Apple walnut salad was great!
It was good just like the other Scotty’s. Beautiful but there were only two other groups in the room. I hope they make it!
A lovely place for an excellent lunch. Great choices and reasonable pricing. Fresh warm rolls served right away, mmm...
The ribs were excellent, but the veal not so much. We felt very rushed. Our meals were out before our appetizers were finished.
Excellent food (Great value) and excellent service
The menu is very nice for light bites, salads and main course selections. Dinner salads would be a nice addition.
The only real negative is the noise level which was excessive. Our party of 4 seated at a table had difficulty carrying on a conversation. We continually had to repeat our comments for those seated across the table.
AMAZING service and yummy, scrumptious food! Many of the staff here used to work at Lovell’s in Lake Forest, so one can rest assured that they know how to provide a first class dining experience. 10/10 would absolutely recommend!
always a Great Martini. A carry-over from Lovell's. Food as good as Lovell's as well. Social media advertising and a happy hour on Friday would likely drive more traffic your way.
Fantastic place, great food and service. It’s in an odd location, they need more advertising to get more people in.
I was pleasantly surprised with Scotty’s on 21. It was our first time there and had a very nice experience on Mother’s Day! Our waiter was attentive, the support staff was superior! Our water glasses were never less than 3/4 full!
My dinner was brought out incorrectly, but happily re-made and was given a rose at the end of the meal! A hidden gem in a strip mall in Vernon Hills!
We will go back!
Very impressed! Arrived early, very early, 45 minutes early for our dinner reservation due to our show letting out early. The host was accommodating and moved things around to seat us, a table of seven, quickly. Service at the table was great as well. Food was excellent. We all enjoyed our evening. We will go back and recommend to others.
We really enjoyed the food and look forward to going back.
Good and service were very good
The meal took forever. There was maybe four tables full in the place. It took 20 min for salads/soups, 40 min for entrees, 10 min for them to bring out the cake we brought in. Our kids were getting restless. This is our second time at Scotty’s and first with kids. It’s kind of like they don’t get it. No reason for food to take so long. If it’s an adults only night and you don’t need your food in a reasonable amount of time then it’s the play. The staff is super nice. It’s clean and pretty. Just takes forever.
Dinner was delicious! Service was great! It was a little loud but not terrible. Fun place and will go again!
This was our first visit to Scotty's and we will definitely return. Our group ordered the Salmon and Gnocchi and we would recommend both. We had the meatballs and crab cakes as an appetizer and they were both excellent and would order again.
We have visited Scotty's on Sheridan and just discovered this location, which is closer to home. Servers were friendly and eager to make our evening enjoyable. Food items came out very quickly, so you may want to pace your ordering accordingly. At times we felt like we were being a bit rushed, but maybe the kitchen was unusually efficient.
Everything we tried was very good, but the BBQ ribs were a standout! The sauce was delicious and the meat fell off the bone just the way we like it. Cocktails were well-made and the Champagne was cold.
Our lunch was delicious. Service was very good. The background music did not interfere with conversation. We were there on a fairly uncrowded Thursday. My friend was there on a Saturday night, very crowded, and said the noise level was ridiculous.
Great ambiance in a strip mall location.Good food and excellent service.
Great service and food. Good atmosphere as well! Definite neighborhood go to for us!
The food is fresh and delicious. Very comfortable atmosphere
Food was good, but the service was outstanding. We liked the ambiance.
Nice neighborhood find. Large bar area with seating at tables. Our waiter was terrific. Our food was hot and delicious.
Food and service were excellent. White fish was fresh, and the pasta was great.
Beautiful decor and the food was excellent. It's hidden and small so it took us awhile to try it but we would definitely go back.
Birthdays, and very nice complimentary desserts were served.
The food was very good as was the service. The ambiance is okay. Tables are a little close together. Service was excellent from our waiter. The only negative I have and why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was that the food came way too quickly! I guess we shouldn't have ordered when we did because it seemed the food was at our table before we knew it. I would have liked a little more time to enjoy my wine, warm rolls and just have a relaxing time. We will return but not be so quick to order!
Lovely space & delicious food. Good drinks as well. Great service. All in all a wonderful experience.
Nice atmosphere. Inviting lounge/bar area where you can dine if you so desire. Dining room shielded effectively from the bar so televisions aren’t a distraction. Female server was attentive. She didn’t once refer to us, two couples as “guys!”
Food was very good, nicely presented, hot with nice sized portions.
Cocktails were amble & well made with top shelf liquor.
Worth a trip back.
Food was good... service was great! It’s a good go to for Friday night cocktails and dinner... easy!
Great ambience - very comfortable yet special in a low-key environment. The food was good - a bit pricey for what it was. The main server was nice and OK on the actual service. But the bartender and bread/water attendees were Outstanding. They really did a great job. Will go again.
Looks like a small storefront, but bigger than it looks. Great food and service. We liked it a lot.
Oh my, our fourth visit and it just keep discovering new dishes to try. The Turkey Meatballs with white beans was DELICIOUS! We also loved the pizza with giardiniera......so tasty. Of course the Manhattans were perfect.
Birthday celebration. Food was delicious. Something for everyone. Portions are perfect and price is very good. Would recommend. I think they need to do more advertising. Alot of people in the area are not familiar with the restaurant.
Great food, great service, will be back!
We tried Scotty's on 21 for the first time after seeing an afternoon play at the Marriott Lincolnshire. Everything was perfect! We were greeted warmly and seated immediately. Our server (Noel?) was excellent - he told us a bit about the restaurant, made great recommendations and was very attentive. The salmon and pork chop entrees were perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. Nice choice of wines by the bottle, which are very fairly priced. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Awesome food and service. We had cocktails and seafood and e everything was excellent!
Been there three times. My dish was excellent all 3 times. I keep going back for the salmon dish. Two in my family had steaks and they were over cooked and just ok. For the price they should have been better. Stick with fish or chicken.
Mussels appetizer very good.
Very attractive, well-laid-out restaurant. The server was great and answered all our questions without hesitation. The three of us had the clam chowder and found it to be very good. Two of us ordered the salmon sandwich; my friend liked it better than I did.
I have been to Scotty's on 21 more than once and it has become a go-to spot for me. We enjoy the Happy Hour during the week which offers great options in food and drinks. The bar area has nice club chairs and tables, and the sound level is low enough to let us hear the great music too.
This week we had dinner on Thursday night. The place was not very busy so the noise level was very quiet. The food is always great, and I can't name any dish specifically since I enjoy so many of them. But you must try the Killer Coffee afterward. This is decadent and packs a punch, but it is a must-have for me.
Finding Scotty's on 21 is interesting since it is between a ChuckieCheese and a Dick's Sporting Goods. Lots of my friends don't know it's here but it is worth finding.
