“An American Oasis in Ireland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

As an America expat living in Galway, Scotty's provides a much-needed option for quality American food when we "need" it. The burgers are of excellent quality, and you can get one just about any way you can imagine. Scotty also serves the only legitimate buffalo wings I've found anywhere in Ireland. My wife enjoys the chill over a baked potato. Be sure to try the sweet potato fries. Quality food, helpful staff, and a good value. Best burger in Galway for sure.

“One of Galways favourites for many reasons!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

I have been served dozens of epic meals at Scottys Steakhouse over the past few years by Scotty and his team. The obvious choice when you browse through the menu has to be the one of his beautiful cuts of steak. My personal fav is the T-Bone served with mashed pototoes and a side of buffalo wings. If chicken wings are your achilles heel then look no further. His wide selection of barbeque sauces go perfectly with the juicy wing or if you want more of a mouthful, try the breaded wingers. The ribs are also beautiful and come in a generous portion. The variety of burgers availble makes your head spin while trying to decide. The homemade desserts are top notch. The apple pie and anything with there chocolate brownies is gorgeous. Except a bit of delay when busy as the place fills up on Friday nights/Sunday afternoons. The price is not always cheap but for the quality of food and service, this place is miles ahead of any other restaurant in town.

“What a Find in Galway – But Be Hungry!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

We decided to try Scotty’s due to previous reviews on Tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed.

Scotty’s is located in a residential complex off the Headford Road and because we were going on a Saturday night, we decided to make a reservation. The last reservations are for 8pm as they close at 9pm but they didn’t rush us out.

The one thing I’d say about Scotty’s is that the portions are HUGE! So you really need to be hungry.

We both had starters, my husband had wings and I had nachos. The portions were really big and because they were both so delicious, we nearly finished them.

We had both ordered burgers for our main course and while these were also delicious, they portions were really big and we just couldn’t finish them.

Scotty’s isn’t that big and the seating is predominantly booths, which makes it nice and cosy.
The food was very reasonably priced, was well cooked and well presented and the waiting staff were all young but very friendly and efficient. They don’t have any draft beer but they do have bottles of beer and soft drinks are served in cans, which are lovely and cold.

Scotty’s is definitely worth a visit and we will come back here the next time we’re in Galway but this time we’ll make sure we’re starving so that we can enjoy every bit of our meal!

I am in love with Scotty's. I have been going to Scotty's for awhile now and it never lets me down. Their food is delicious and can't be beaten. If you want an American dining experience, come to Scotty's. The staff are also very friendly and helpful :)
