Wanted a proper American diner ... wasn't disappointed!! Very grumpy looking but funny (I thought waiter) had burgers and chips very tasty and reasonably priced. Also tried breakfast one morning very nice with endless cups of tea or coffee.

Visited here each morning for breakfast on our recent week to NYC. Excellent value for money. Friendly staff. Food was lovely. My kids loved the pancakes. Also one of the only places we've eaten that has said service was included

Just visited Scotty's Diner with my friend, one word, WOW! We're on holiday and staying locally and heard good things. We went around 11am and it was rammed with people, lots of deliveries going out too. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the food was freshly made and great quality. We will be back.

Typical diner that we chose over a hotel breakfast option as you always get a more reasonably priced meal. Service was good, we were quickly seated and served although it felt more like efficiency than friendly. The food was plentiful so ticked the value for money box but not really amazing to tempt us back for another visit. The omelette... More

Visited for breakfast and ordered veg omelette and scrambled eggs with sausage. Both dishes served with fried potatoes and toast so the portions are plentiful. Food was good and reasonably priced with the staff being friendly while also very efficient. The owner who greets you is super nice and very witty.

I'll be going back for breakfast again whilst enjoying my trip to NYC this week. My son enjoyed his pancakes .. definitely something he wanted to tick off his list of things to eat in NYC. Service was quick and efficient ... nothing to complain about. Would happily recommend.

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.
