I read so many good reviews on here so wanted to try this place. I found the food pretty boring and the salad I had was bland. The service was quick and I do think this is a place you'd want to take a large group with varying ages.

Wonderful place to eat .. excellent quality, service, and ambiance! Have been many times & tried different dishes ... always great! Personally love the Beef Dip best with shrimp cocktail first which my friend & I usually share! Loved the pint bottle of Steam Whistle Pilsener to share & take a clean bottle home (great for flower vase???)

Given any place in almost Ontario to eat for their 50th wedding anniversary my parents picked their favorite place, Scotty's. They eat there as often as they can and now we go for most special occasions. The garlic shrimp appetizer is great and we always make sure to order at least 2. Atmosphere is warm and inviting and staff is... More

Finally tried Scotty's after many years of saying " we should try Scotty's" and we wish we had tried it sooner! First of all, I want to point out how accessible Scotty's is for people with mobility issues. We saw at least 3 people in wheelchairs or with walkers. Very impressed by that. We were totally not expecting the stylish... More

Greeter informs us immediately there would be a 10 min wait in a restaurant that did not appear to be busy on a Sunday evening. He then immediately changed his mind and seated us in the bar area. Apparently they were short staffed. Then the server informs us things are slow tonight and would take at least 30 min to... More

I asked for a gin martini - very simple order considering the restaurant and it's menu. I received a martini glass FULL of ice cubes, a poorly mixed martini and a cooking Olive!!! Are you kidding me? We will not be back.

Came for a birthday dinner of ribs. Ribs here are always great, and have been coming for many years, including in the old location at Minett's Point. Service is friendly and efficient. All food was served hot and fresh. Even finger bowls had hot water. Good french fries and excellent cole slaw. Since it was a birthday, had brownies with... More
