The only reason I selected 4 stars instead of 5 is that my husband said the mussels were just ok. My salmon was fantastic & the couple we were with thought their meals were great... a filet & chicken. This is our 3rd visit & we will definitely go again.

We sat outside and were kept warm (about 50 degrees F) by a heat lamp which was much appreciated on a cool evening. Polly took care of us and willingly check with the chef re: my gluten free questions. All of the staff were helpful and friendly.

Great food! I had the Whitefish and my husband had the salmon. Both excellent! Also had the best dirty vodka martini's we've had in a while. Served in a chilled glass...the best!
Scotty, the owner, is also the maitre d. He is very friendly and attentive. Will definitely go back.

Okay, so we're dining in a parking lot. But Scotty's makes the most of the current Covid situation with lovely planters to divide the cars from the socially-distanced tables, attentive wait-staff, excellent menu and fantastic food. I could eat here several times a week and never grow tired of it. Scotty's is THAT good.

We always enjoy dining at Scotty’s on Sheridan. The food is very good as is the service. Scotty, also, enjoys engaging with his customers and obviously takes pride in the quality of both the food and service in his establishment. We have enjoyed the outdoor dining that has resulted because of Covid and are hoping that it will still be available after Covid.

Hard to believe we are eating in parking lots and on side walks this summer...but we are.
Scotty's is doing a great job of serving diners with table cloths, etc..even in their parking lot .The food is still great, the wait staff full of good humor and rolling with the situation.,
Keep up the good work...we will continue to return till the snow begins to fall.

Scotty's on Sheridan in Highwood. has outdoor socially distant seating and the noise level was low. The wait staff was efficient, available without being obtrusive, polite and friendly. All three of us really enjoyed our food, entrees were: BBQ ribs with choice of sauces, superior white fish and Caesar salad with grilled chicken. They also offer a gluten free menu on request. I recommend Scotty's for an enjoyable evening.
