“Great food, friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Had a delicious breakfast at Scojo's - wide selection and very tasty and reasonably priced. I appreciated that they offer fruit as an alternative to potatoes as a side. Long wait (1/2 hour on a Sunday in April) because it is very popular. Very friendly staff. No sign of any Sandy damage.

“Scojo's is back (after SANDY) and is better than ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Scott & Joe just reopened this landmark family restaurant about 4 days ago and the the word is out that they are back and providing good solid cooking and efficient service at reasonable prices. Hurricane SANDY destroyed almost every commercial establishment on the island. It's a testament to the spirit of the "locals" (as we are known) that is apparent as life comes back after the devastation.

“Ugh!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

The food is not bad...the basics are probably better than most, but the service is either really good or really, REALLY bad. And the host/hostess are none too pleasant. We have been coming here for years and it is always potluck. The last time we attempted to eat there was a weeknight with five couples in front of us. We waited outside until our name was (never) called. They forgot about us and gave the next available table to another family (even though we had just inquired as to "how long?").

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

The food and service were equally terrific. This was especially impressive because they were full to capacity with a line of people waiting, yet everything was organized, friendly, and timely. All portions were big and delicious. We will definitely return and recommend Scojo's!
