Food is delicious here. Wait staff very accommodating. I’ve had shrimp and linguine/veal piccata/whitefish last few Times. All very nicely served and high quality. Coconut cake is best desert. It is noisy there though.

I had an order of garlic shrimp linguini, but found a matzoh ball in the linguine. Makes you wonder. I asked for decaf coffee, but it tasted terrible, as if it had been on the hot plate for a long time.

Great as always. Had an excellent filet — grilled perfect! They are always flexible in giving you what you want as sides. North Shore jewel— don’t tell too many— don’t want the masses to come.

We had a nice meal with good people. Our staff was friendly and attentive. Overall, the food was good. My daughter had the mussels which she loved, but I thought were too salty. My wife and I split a Greek Salad, which was perfect size and good flavors. I had a burger and I’d have it again. My wife had a gluten-free pasta and really enjoyed it.

First time at Scotty’s and I enjoyed the food and the service. The menu had enough variety and I liked that their were some less expensive options at dinner if you were not real hungry. I will be back

Scotty’s is our favorite neighborhood joint. Just classy enough to make it special, but not a snob or fussbudget attitude anywhere among the staff. Scotty takes great care to make all of the guests feel welcome and catered to. The kitchen holds up their end of the bargain too. We love this place and highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed. TIP: try to be seated in the bar. It has more room between tables and being there makes sure that Scotty keeps his eye on you.

We had a wonderful meal there and the waiter was very friendly. My wife said she wanted to compliment the chef and the waiter actually asked the chef to come out to our table. We had some wonderful shrimp cocktail pre-dinner and we loved the cocktail sauce and the waiter actually gave us a small carton of the sauce to take home. We will definitely come back again

I clicked anniversary on open table and nothing was done for it. Food was just okay. Nothing special. Don’t get all the good reviews. Our first time and we won’t return. Too many better restaurants.

Will go there whenever I have the chance as live 30 minutes south. Worth the drive every time. Service is stellar. Food...am close to going thru entire menu. Have yet to find anything they do not do well. North Shore resident for 73 years. This is a gem!

After reading all the good reviews we decided to try Scottys. The waitress was not knowledgeable about the menu at all. I asked what the place is known for and she couldn't give me an item that she would recommend . I went ahead and ordered the veal piccata. It came swimming in a pool of oil with raw spinach leafs on top. Tasteless at best. Only the capers had flavor. My husbands pork chops were not glazed with a brandy sauce but very watery and they were overcooked and chewy. We will not be visiting this place again.

We love getting together with friends at Scotty's......a friendly place with good food. However, a new policy of double checking reservations is irritating...the day before our reservation, I received an e-mail asking if our party was coming to the restaurant. I confirmed that we still were. Then about an hour and a half before our reservation, I received a phone call asking me to confirm that we were still coming...totally unnecessary. What if i had missed that phone call? Would Scotty's have cancelled the reservation?
