June 2014 we stayed a few doors away at St Giles The Court. Scotty's was fantastically convenient for a great (huge) breakfast, late night coffees and anything wee needed in between. Lovely guys in there, very friendly, and everything we ate was good. And if we just wanted something made that wasn't on the menu they'd just make it for... More

I would totally recommend a visit to this diner. We went in nearly every day of our visit. The value for money is amazing, the food is well cooked and the staff are lovely, they always remembered us and were very diligent in serving us, we were never without coffee for a moment without a free refill and the food...

This was convenient to our hotel Pod 39. Portions were large. Friendly "old school" servers/staff. Could use just a little fresh up, but it really does have that cozy diner feel with booths and a counter with stools. We felt very welcome here.

We stopped here for breakfast after finding it on trip advisor and was enroute on our first day in NYC. I had the pancakes with fruit and my husband had eggs, bacon, home fries. We ordered quickly and food was on our table within 5 mins, excellent and quick. My only criticisms is that the staff could be a bit... More

We rolled in Scotty's a few times after 12 for food, tried the burger, chips, BLT, kebabs all food was tasty, good price and serviced fresh and quickly. We didn't get to try an of the cakes but they looked yummy. I would certainly recommend this diner.

This is the real deal authentic American diner, no frills & playing up for tourists, yet friendly and enjoyable experience. Very reasonable priced food which was very tasty and large portions also. If you want a truly authentic diner in the heart of new york then this is it!

Loved every second of it, we were staying just down the road I think we went there every day for two weeks whether it was breakfast lunch or dinner. I made a cheesey fry and gravy sandwich and they had never seen it before (must be an Aussie thing) it was a hit! They were so friendly and it was... More

If I lived near this place, I'd probably go here a lot. The food is good. It's not fantastic gourmet food, it's just good diner food. It's also open 24 hours so it's perfect for night owls like myself. I was there for a late dinner with my husband and son. The waiter was pleasant, and patient as looked over... More

Friendly staff, traditional diner decor, reasonably priced. I had the pancakes with bacon...perfectly American. Go if you're in the area, don't go to the area especially.

We were looking for a big egg/bacon breakfast on a late Sunday morning and went here because we had passed by several times as its located a half block from the hotel we stayed in. Tradional American breakfast is generally retty simple meal so nothing to elaborate on but it was good, decent portion and fair prices. We were seated... More
