Don't just drive by this restaurant because the outsides are not beautiful it's inside that counts. I simply love their pizza! The house special, as far as I'm concerned, is fabulous. It's loaded with the very best ingredients and I mean LOADED. You back up that pizza with one of their house wines or a cold picture of beer and... More

After living in the area for 8 years, I was searching Yelp for new places to try, and took my kids here for dinner. The reviews were right! A weird little place with a blue roof, with the name "Scuttlebutts" on the roof, along with the words "Pizza" and "Fish", I had noticed it, but didn't feel drawn to it.... More

Don't let the outside scare you off. This place is amazing. Make sure to try the Lobster and Crab bisque. The Lobster ravioli is also wonderful. You will not be sorry

We drove by this restaurant many times before we stopped. This is the place to go for pizza, pasta, subs, & fish. The outside is deceiving, we actually thought it was a bar. The inside is very nicely decorated in an Italian theme. It is very clean! They serve a variety of great appetizers. Try their onion rings & mozzarella... More

This was our first time dining here. We were with friends who have been here several times. I have driven by this restaurant several times over the past few years and never realized it was here. Scuttlebutt's is a small 'hole in the wall' restaurant that serves great Italian food. My wife and I were very surprised and pleased with... More

Unfriendly staff and poor service made us go elsewhere. They had no ceramic cups for coffee so it was served in a paper cup. The toast, underdone if you can believe, was delivered in a bowl. The elderly cashier treated us with distain. We will not be back. There are at least 6 other restaurants in the area. We will... More

I have lived in the Apache Junction area for many years now and have driven past Scuttlebutts many time while looking to go to dinner. The outside decor is not what it appears to be. It this was Restaurant Impossible they would certainly change the outside appearance. Inside it is not fancy but very nice, clean and organized. The staff... More

My dad and I totally love going to the fish fry on Friday evenings! The fish is not overly greasy and breaded to perfection! My only objection is that you don't get additional fries when you get your additional fish, but hey, the fish is awesome anyway!
