The food was fantastic. Large portions, cooked exactly as asked. It was a tiny space though and the service was good just not great. The server almost seemed to get annoyed when we didn't want coffee and he went as far as to ask multiple times after we said no.

One of my goals when visiting NYC was to try a bunch of different diners; Scotty's was one of the handful we were able test out during our travels. Big portions for decent prices and tons of options to choose from! There was only one waiter when we visited and he handled every table alone with ease (and he had... More

My 3 little girls loved this place for breakfast on a recent trip to NYC. Food was good, portions were large, prices were reasonable, just what you expect from a quality diner. Waiter was a little short with people but did not seem overly rude just in a hurry. Food is made and delivered to your table quickly. Waffles with... More

You just can't go wrong at Scottys for breakfast. Service is fast and friendly, food quantity and quality is better than you might expect. Do not be put off by the entrance.

We (3) went to Scotty's Diner in July 2016 for breakfast because of all the good reviews. It did not disappoint! Loved the staff, the food, and all around feel. The older gentlemen were nice and funny! The food was delicious and a huge amount! Eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, pancakes, waffles. All was great! Hope to return on our next... More

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.
