I brought 5 friends to Scotty's and they were so happy to find this new restaurant. We all loved our food and I appreciate that I can find a healthy veggie dish since I'm a vegetarian. Staff was very friendly and service was great.

First time at Scotty's and only found out about it because it kept on coming up on my OpenTable feed. Don't get fooled by the fact that it is in a nondescript strip mall, as the inside is fancy-ish. Food was solidly good, although not outstanding. Tends to be a bit on the heavier/comfort food level. For example, my veal piccata, which at most places is on the lighter side, tended to be more like a veal marsala. Not to say it wasn't good - it was. I did like the ambience, which is conversation friendly but somewhat lively. While maybe not my favorite, I would definitely go back.

We had a wonderful dinner. Someone had mentioned the restaurant and we had never been. The
waiter was charming and very knowledgeable. I am a rough critic so when I write a review it is
because I truly enjoyed the whole experience. The four of us all ordered different entrees which is
important in order to make a fair review. Ordered a pizza for the table that came crisp and very flavorful.
the chopped pear salad was quite ample so we each shared with our spouse. The risotto was delicious and
Blackened salmon sandwich was done well. Gnocchi bolognese was a hit and my friend isn't easy to please. The standout was my porkchops. they were roasted with veggies and finished with a brandy sauce and goat cheese. Yum. Large portion so I took one home for the next day. Kindalike having a great dinner twice. I would highly recommend and we can't wait to go back!

Nice warm ambiance....food had great potential, but overall slightly disappointed. Arugula salad with beets a little bland, crab cakes could be crispier, entrees (salmon, filet) mostly satisfying. Liked the Brussels. Drinks a little
Weak. Wine was good . Service excellent.

Food wasn’t anything special. The folks with scallops and grilled calamari were very pleased. The folks with the bowls and salmon not so much. It’s a nice venue but just not worth the price.

This was our first time at Scotty's. We loved it & will be going back. We got there at 5:00 & sat near the bar in the comfy chairs to enjoy their happy hour. We had several appetizers , a hamburger & some drinks. It was all delicious including the little rolls they bring to your table. My only complaint is the tight parking- plenty of parking spaces, but very tight to back out.

Very charming on the inside, courteous and friendly staff.
The menu was small, but in a good way for Thanksgiving.
Everything was served at exactly the right pace for us, the food was very good and a good value.
Will go back if in the area to check out the regular menu.

From beginning to end, we had another great dining experience. Tables aren’t too close so conversation was easy. Menu choices varied and price points for everything were great. Service was amazing- water glasses always filled & we asked for an item that had been a previous special & they made it just for us. Calamari with Thai sauce was delicious & portion ample fir sharing with our party of 4. The chicken Marsala was outstanding. All portions were ample too! Scotty’s fast becoming one of our favorite places!

Have always liked Scotty's as a place to meet and dine with friends, even if the food, imho, was just ok. This time I tried a sauteed shrimp special that was excellent, so I'll be going back to try other specials.

The food was delicious and the service was prompt. This would not be my choice for a quiet, intimate dinner though. It is just one big dining space with tables, so you are listening to everyone's conversation around you. No booths. Very convenient neighborhood restaurant.
