A real New York diner experience. Will definitely go back if back in New York. We went for our breakfast and both got the "strips of steak and eggs" well when it came we were gobsmacked as it was actually a huge steak with three fried eggs on top! It was amazing!! It certainly filled us up for the rest... More

A very good diner, quite a bit of food for the price and classic, prompt diner service (to the point of almost pushing you to leave). Recommended.

We had orange juice, omelette, pancakes and a blueberry muffin. The omelettes are massive and very tasty. Service was fast and very good. There's plenty of booths so we did not have to wait to get a table. Recommended!

Scotty's is a typical New York diner. From the décor to the food to the service. And typical is good. Without the bizarre experience I'll recount below all would have been very well. However, my wife ordered a blueberry muffin. Like, incidentally, she has done many times in this city and all over the world. The muffin came out toasted.... More

We went to Scotty's based on the reviews here and we're not disappointed. We wanted a small non-chain restaurant and that's what we got. Great food, really flexible in giving our kids what they wanted and great service. Definitely recommend!

We found this great diner near our hotel, and went there for breakfast 3 days in a row! Amazing quick service, and a great menu with breakfast served all day, plus lunch and dinners on the menu. Such a variety that you could eat there daily and not be bored with your meal. Decent prices as well. We actually met... More

We ate breakfast at this place 3 days and the service was good. Got table without waiting, fast ordering and preparation of the food. The food it self was ok. Standard omelette tasted just omelette. Didn't have any spices so it was a little boring.

Scotty's was a pleasant surprise. The food was great, the service was fast and the price was right. The portions were plenty as well. I would love to try more on there menu. There were a few locals dining as well and the waiter knew them by name, so you know it's good enough for "regulars".

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
