The service was outstanding- servers with smiles, checking on everything, filling the water glasses. We split one item from each category and they brought us each half - even the soup! The food was ok but the presentation was very nice. The bar area has atmosphere but the dining room could have been in a senior residential facility. No music left the noise level where everyone could hear each other without shouting. Decent value for the meal.

Celebrated my wife’s 60th birthday and were not disappointed. Scotty’s is nothing special on the outside—just another storefront in a small strip mall, but inside the bar and dining room are cozy and comfort. The real stars, however, are the food and the service. Nice variety on the menu, with everything nicely prepared and presented. The servers are all experienced professionals who know how to treat customers well. And the owner is almost always there to ensure everything is the way it should be. Many of the customers appear to be regulars—for good reason. Why go somewhere else when Scotty’s is such a great experience?

Service was wonderful and staff friendly. We ordered the salmon to split and two sides. They did a beautiful job of splitting the salmon in the kitchen so we had half the salmon each decorated as if it was a full order. It was delicious. Will be going back soon!!

This restaurant is a gem. It's buried away in a strip mall but it's quality, ambience and service are so much so. My husband and I have eaten there weekly since we discovered it a month ago and we've brought friends with us. We'll be going back a lot more often. The quality of the food as well as the range of menu options is fantastic!

Scotty greeted us at the door and it was an extra special experience. It was the night of the Bears’s Cody goal post fiasco. I was in the dining room facing the bar and tv’s, so there are two separate dining/eating areas. Food was excellent. I wanted something more casual...had margarita crisp thin crust pizza with grilled chicken and fresh basil. Husband had spaghetti and ample portion of meatballs. The served it with lightly grated Parmesan...normally he hates cheese but he said Scotty’s dish was well balanced and all flavors mingled well. Would order the same again.

This place is great. It is on our go to list. Great when we need to relax over dinner, and also great when we want to bring a friend to someplace that they haven't tried as it is predictably excellent. I might just mention that my friend said he would never order Veal Piccata again anywhere else because it wouldn't be as good as this one and he wanted to just keep the memory.

Unfortunately I think it was an off night for Scotty’s. Our pizzas were simply awful. I think they have too many disparate menu items which go from burgers and pizzas to salmon and filets. They should pare down to fewer items and concentrate on making them awesome.

Our party of four had a lovely dinner at Scotty's on a Saturday evening. The place was full and lively, but the server prompt and very helpful, providing us recommendations for everything. We enjoyed the veal piccata and scallops from the regular dinner menu; both entrees were done to perfection and flavorful. The coconut cake topped off a great evening. While the decor is a bit on the cheesy side, we highly recommend Scotty's for great food and ambiance.

Another great dinner at Scotty’s, an understated gem in the rota of north shore neighborhood restaurants. Thank you for the warm staff, unpretentious atmosphere and the delicious food and drink! Leave the SUVs at home as it’s a challenge to navigate even the smallest of cars through the parking lot. But that’s quibble we gladly overlook for the Scotty’s experience!

Lovely restaurant. Service great. Food excellent. I had shrimp and linguini. Pasta was perfect al dente. Good amount of shrimp. Maybe alittle too much sauce. Bread very good. Alittle too crowded in dining area. Too many tables that makes noisier dining. Bar area very comfy and great idea. Alittle crowded in there too. But restaurant is great place to dine and food really good.

On a busy Saturday night of Thanksgiving weekend we had a reservation at seven. The place was packed but unfortunately the service was extremely slow and the food was very bland and needed seasoning. Those who had chicken said it was dry. The risotto was halfway there and had No flavor or cheese in it.
