“Disappointed ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Overpriced for the quality of food.
Many drinks on the menu weren't available and the food was very bland.
Oysters kilpatrick would have been the dish to compliment only the shell had cracked and mixed in with the filling.
I won't be returning soon.

“A bit hit and miss”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

Service great but overall food was average and overpriced. The scallops were the highlight, barra was well cooked but watch out for bones and the bread was horrible.

“Great seafood in Gladstone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

We had a business dinner at Scotties and loved it! The Calamari was to die for, and so was the pork belly. Indeed, all of our team really enjoyed their food.

“Not worth the money ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

I'll start with the positives! The calamari entree was great. That's about it.
The pork belly was tasteless, the potatoe on the dish resembled the instant canned 'deb' stuff and the beans were water logged and soggy. My husbands steak was very chewy and certainly over cooked.
The young waitress's ignored us for drinks service as her father was dinning next to us and she was to busy attending to him and when I asked for some mosquito spray (as I was told when we booked that it would be available to us should we need it ) couldn't be found and someone would arrange some - it never came.
When we went to pay the bill the owner/manager had ample opportunity to get our feedback but didn't go there! We gave him quite a bit of information leading him to ask about the food, but he didn't.
Overall very disappointing, the food was very bland and over priced for the quality. How can someone get the calamari so right and not cook veges?
Will not be going back
