“Low quality at a high price!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

Wait staff had no idea what they were doing. Waited such a long time to be served and what we recieved from their limited menu was resiculously priced for the quality - dry chicken and an average streak over cooked. We were honest with the waiter about out thoughts on the meal buy
Wetent appologosed to or offered anything to make up for it and when Scottie himself gabe us the cheque he didn't bother to ask us how our meal was. Onstead he charged us TWICE and my partner had to go back the next day "after they balanced the drawer to confirm he did in fact charge the card twice". Can't say we would go back again as I've had better pub meals for half the price tag

“Restaurant ?. Scotties ??. Not really, just a social outlet for its owner.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

After reading the reviews on this site, I decided to take my son to Scotties for dinner. The supposed waiter, who had no idea which table was which, left us standing there twiddling our thumbs for a good five minutes. Eventually he found our table and without more than a follow me nod of the head he lead us to it. He did bring a bottle of chilled water under his armpit which he decided to return to the kitchen as there already was a bottle on the table, warm water but water none the less. So we sat there for aprox 10 minutes while other people were being seated and served, whereas we were largely ignored by our waiter. The menu had a maximum of 7 dishes to choose from, however the wine list was very extensive. In truth, a restaurant with 7 dishes ?. Not really a restaurant.
All in all, we decided to walk out and ended up at a much better restaurant. So thank you Scotties, I won't have anything good to say to my friends nor to my clients on your behalf.

“Amazing food and wine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

Another Gladstone favourite restaurant. Very clean and trendy with outdoor dining on the deck as well as indoor. Wonderful table service with staff who know what is actually on the menu! They have a new chef who makes the most AMAZING pork belly and mashed potato creme brulee....
Love the different wines and the cheese platter is the best! We will be back again ...and again!

“Great dining and drinking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

Be the pre-dinner drinks at the bar or the fantastic manu from the Belgian chef Roel, Scotty continues to be the epic of a good night out in Gladstone.
