We read several reviews before we went and seemed the baby back ribs were the way to go. They were just so-so. Pretty tough and when my 22 year old rugby player doesn't finish his full rack, you know they were'nt the best.

We accidently found Scotty's a few years ago. Now we can not visit Pismo Beach without going to Scotty's - several times! We love to order their fish tacos off of the menu - they are delicious. But if you want to try something even more so ask for the mahi mahi fish tacos. Not on the menu and hard to believe they are better than the original ones but they are! Fish is not fried, done up in a nice fresh way. It just melts in your mouth. Everything we have tried off the menu has been good although haven't tried too many items because I can never get enough of the fish tacos. Scotty's is not fancy, very comfortable and open, family friendly. Many locals are regular customers. They have a full bar and several tv's for viewing different sporting events. Waiters and bartenders all make you feel like a local, learning your names and remembering you. Great place and I highly recommend it. It is up from the pier area which allows for easier seating during peak tourist season.

I've eaten here a couple of times and the food is good. The atmosphere is laid back. The last time i was there it was very noisy and kind of hot on the inside.

Nice atmosphere. Enjoyed the full bar as well as the food. The hot ham and cheese sandwich is the best. Good services.

This is definitely a place the locals go. The bartenders are honest, friendly, and know their clientele. I give it 5 stars for the bar and 4 for the resturant, so it rounds to 5.

The food is very good. Not gourmet, but very good sports bar food. I can't recommend the purple cabbage slaw that often appears on dishes. It's Scotty's mother's old recept and should be retired. But, Scotty owns the place and it doesn't take up too much room! LOL
