We have been going to Scotty's for over 20 years, When we first started going in the 90's it was great, over the years it got worse and worse, the last 5 years it was terrible - beaches weren't raked, grounds were overgrown, I think they lost a lot of the regulars.
The original owners sold Scotty's in the fall of 2014 - we didn't think Scotty's would reopen.
We were skeptic going into 2015, we knew how bad things were there in 2014.
I have to say the new owners are giving it a 110% effort to turn things around. This past week we observed the chairs being arranged on the beach every morning, as well as the beach being raked. I even saw the dock being swept.
Lot's of people working everywhere, the grounds showed great improvement. There is still work to be done, hence the reason I didn't give it 5 stars, but it is 400% better than it was last year.
Scotty's is a great family environment, off the main road, with plenty for the children to do either on the playground or in the pool, (which by the way is sporting new chairs, tables, and umbrella's).
The outdated arcade has been replaced by tables and chairs for the snack bar. Great wings too!!!
They have Paddle Boats, Kayak's, Row Boats, and Paddle boards for rent if your feeling adventurous.
If you were a past Scotty's faithful customer that finally got fed up and left, then you need to give the new owners a new shot.
If you've never been to Scotty's and are looking for a down to earth place to bring the family - then give Scotty's a try - you won't be disappointed.
