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.

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?

From a food perspective, this was a very uneven meal. The fried calamari were barely decent, though the meatball appetizer was fantastic. The ribs totally fell right off the bone, but the fries and broccoli that we got on the side left a lot to be desired. The corn soup had no taste, but the bacon wrapped scallops were exquisite. Overall, it was OK, just very inconsistent.

Scotty & team always greet me like a regular and quickly scurry to get a welcome beverage in our hands. The reasonably-priced wine list contains some gems. Never feel like I didn't get my money's worth. One of the North Shore's finest.

My wife and I have been wanting to try Scotty’s for a while and finally went for dinner on a recent evening. Although the restaurant was busy, Scotty greeted us when we arrived.
Service was attentive and the food delicious. Nice selection of beer, wine, and spirits with generous pours. We shared the apple and walnut salad, which our server thoughtfully split. For entrees, I had the pork chops while my wife had a veggie burger. Portions are generous and the food well prepared. We somehow found room to share a slice of flourless chocolate to satisfy our sweet tooth. Heavenly.
We were very pleased with our initial dining experience at Scotty’s and plan to return soon.
