Scotty's is a frequent stop, right on the Strand close to the Pier. Varied menu, a favorite for locals wanting to be close to the beach, watching the surf, volleyball players, swimmers. runners, walkers, and other sights and sounds while eating amidst cool breezes. Typical old style menu and food, a favorite for breakfast and lunch among visitors and locals.... More

Not sure why Scotty's seems so undiscovered - but we always have the feeling that we're the only ones who know its there and it is our own special place. They serve great food and have an incredible location right on the Strand in Hermosa Beach (less than a block south of Pier Avenue Plaza). With 50' of windows, you... More

We make at least two trips to Scotty's when we make our annual trip to LA. Breakfast is great, service is great and it's wonderful opportunity to see life at its full on the Strand. If you are in the area it's a must visit

Awesome Strand/Beach-Side views, fantastic food and is not over-priced considering the location. I will eat here every time I come to Hermosa, and i come here every month.

I go to Scotty's almost weekly while in town. Free parking, excellent view of the strand and beach, good food. Seating inside is split (half with booths and half with tables). They open the windows so the ocean breeze blows through. Always look forward to going back.

OK I love diners. This is a loooong locally owned beachfront diner. Fancy? No. Food? Yes! It is RIGHT on the strand. The people, dog and ocean watching is superb! Lunch and dinner is fine for a burger and fries but the breakfast is SO GOOD served all day and priced well. Nice people, good service, saggy benches just the... More

Everytime I cycle the bike path from Marina del Rey to Palos Verdes, I stop at Scotties for breakfast. It's always the Huevos Rancheros and I am never dissappointed. 10 steps from the sand in Hermosa Beach...what a view! Good food, good service and good scenery...what else could I ask for?

I like the atmosphere of this place. Not glitzy just what a beach restaurant should be. Great view, food and price plus free parking. I've been here before and was in the area for an event at the pier. Got a great sandwich and time to wind down before going home.

We have a group that meets at least once a month for bike ride. One of our favorite rides is Marina Del Rey to Kings Harbor with a lunch stop at Scotty's. We always call ahead because there can be as many as 20 people on the ride. Scotty's always makes room for us. The food is very good, the... More
