A very large, eclectic menu with lots of interesting options. Lots of TVs for watching sports. TV at every booth, too. Service was fast and friendly. Food was good.

Scotty's is a nice place for a beer and burger. It's greasy bar food but not bad. Service is good and they have a variety. I usually have the peanut butter burger but this time I tried the bean wrap. That was very very good....More

Ate here before a concert and I have to admit it wasn't that great at all. We didn't have many choices and time wasn't on our side. The service also could have been better. Not going back any time soon.

Food was ok, however...service from behind the bar was below grade. We sat there long before other customers sat down next to us. They got served before us. 1 Bartender tended to just ignore us, saying she had just come on duty (5pm) we finally...More

I would call beforehand. I don't know because I ate inside and don't normally take my dog out to eat with me :). But, it looked like there was plenty of room and it wouldn't be a problem.
