An Undiscovered Gem

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... read more

Hey the location cannot be beat. On the Strand looking at the beach. As for food, just average at best. It is often fast service to keep things moving. You never know how it will come out. Having eaten there 3 times, the food quality was different each time. None of them better than average and once, a late supper,... More

We ate on a weekend night, and the place was jumping, very crowded!! The place is loud and you pretty much have to yell at each other to hear what's being said. The food was excellent and there was plenty of it!!! The waiters and waitresses were very helpful. We were sitting in a corner with a music loud speaker... More

This restaurant is right on the strand which seems to be a prime location yet they don't seem too busy. The food was good enough and there was plenty of it. There are almost too many menu choices. They offer a little something for everyone. My son and I both had the thought that this would be a great choice... More

Looking for a good prided Eatery? Scottys is the place. On the Hermosa Strand, it's not fancy, good prices and good breakfast food. The help us friendly and they don't rush you. It's a pretty standard food but you can't beat the scenery constantly going by. Beautiful men and women walking by, riding, skating and skateboarding by makes the view... More

Great view. Lovely staff. Menu has anything from seafood, chicken, beef, pasta, etc entrees, to pizza, sandwiches - wide variety. Almost diner fare, but some of the chicken entrees are quite nice (ask if they could make you the chicken roulade - delicious but not always on the menu). All other reviewers have covered what it's about. Very relaxed. You... More

This restaurant has an incredible view of the Hermosa Beach oceanfront and it's right on the Strand. However, I think that because of those features, maybe they take that for granted as they lack in service and food quality and menu choices. I live within walking distance to this restaurant and have been there a couple of times hoping that... More

Good menu variety. Breakfast served until 3pm everyday. Right on the strand so it has good views and people watching. Service was very good. Prices were great and our food (carnitas omelet- crunchy french toast) was really tasty. Definitely stop in if you are in the area.

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

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
