Seriously, everything here is delicious and awesome. From the charcuterie to the cheese planks to the smoked salmon, you name it! The staff is super laid back and friendly, (Paige is a great bartender btw) and everyone I bring here always has a great time. Great for friends or a date night.

Oh. My. Gosh. This place is absolutely incredible! The minute you walk in the door, you know it is something special, and a “proper Scottish pub.” The décor is elegant, lots dark, rich wood, subdued lighting, and a bar displaying an extensive selections of whiskeys. And...men in kilts! We came here for the traditional fare so for starters, we ordered... More

I visited Scottish Arms with a group of work colleagues seeking a change from the typical hotel or near the hotel food. The service was great - plenty of attention when we wanted it and none when we didn't. Good bar selection and enough variety to satisfy 9 very different palates. Everyone had different entrees and enjoyed them. The Mince... More

My wife and I had a great meal here and will be back. The atmosphere is casual but the food is much more than your typical bar fare. We could have made a meal out of appetizers, but didn't want to miss out on the special or some of the other entre items. Topping everything off was a great beer... More

Great atmosphere whether it is for Brunch or dinner. Largest Scotch selection in the city and ranked in the top 5 in the country.

While staying for several days at the Parkway Hotel to be close to Children's Hospital for a Granddaughter's surgery, my wife and I decided to try the Scottish Arms, (it's less than a mile) and we're so glad we did. I have lived in Scotland, my wife is Scottish, I have a daughter and her family living there, I was... More

This was a neat space! The interior is very "pub" like. My husband and I were out for a late night dinner and sat on the dining side. We ordered appetizers and just shared all of the food. Let me start off by saying the baked brie baguette is SO fantastic! I'll have to say the best appetizer there! We... More

Great time and good food. Traditional Scottish/English fare. Makes you feel like you are in a authentic English pub. I had the lamb shanks and they were very good. Good pub food selection and choices of beer and ale. My English friend said he felt very at home! Will return again.

The food is really nice, especially Duck Proschetta (absolutely delicious! a must have) and I also like the Scottish ambiance with people wearing kilts and toilets having lassies and lads written on them. My friend did some whiskey sampling and said it was really nice. One thing which I didn't like was charging for cutting/dividing our burger into 2, I... More
