Scotty's is your typical dinner, nothing fancy but the location right on the strand and the view can not be beat. Great to sit window side and watch all the people going by and the ocean Typically, like this place best for breakfast. Food is quality and portions are good. Price is a little higher but you would expect this... More

We found ourselves here after dropping keys in the ocean (yep, I know). They were so great with helping us get food and drinks for our girls while waiting to get our stuff from our locked car. See Sue and Demi as they are the best two girls to happen to that place. The manager had the patience of a... More

If you like diner food, Scotty's won't disappoint. I lived and worked in Hermosa for 4 years and I've had several breakfast and lunch items here and it was always good, I never had a bad meal. Service is fast and friendly. No outdoor seating but, window seating right on the Strand, I'm not sure any other restaurant is closer... More

It's been years since the wife & I have eaten at Scotty's. With some family in town that also hadn't been there in a while, it was decided that we'd head on over for breakfast. As usual, the parking was packed and there was a bit of a wait (although I was told that the wait was much longer on... More

Cool little dinner just off the beach. Great dinner food options, great service, and can accommodate large or small groups. Right off the beach lets you eat at reasonable prices and than go back to rollerbladers, bike, walking, surfing, swimming, or whatever else you want. Easy, enjoyable, and tasty.

5 of us had breakfast on Thanksgiving morning 11/24/16. The food was very good, especially the Chorizo scramble. Drinks were good with the Mimosas being great and the Bloody Mary being good but not great. Service was prompt, professional and friendly. We've had breakfast there for 2 of the past 3 Thanksgivings and will most probably make Scotty's a Thanksgiving... More

Enjoyed our lunch here. Tried fish tacos, they were amazing. Good service, price was above average for food but below average for area. Located on beach close enough to see but not close enough to feel. Lots of activity by volleyballers, skaters, bikers, and strollers passing by to watch. Would recommend.

Right on the Strand with views of ocean and beach volleyball courts. Good food. Good service. Limited parking. Close to pier and other shops.

An old fashioned eating place. Huge menu. Portions too large and ingredients didn't seem good quality. I often struggle when eating in The States with quantity over quality. We find sharing is often best as you are presented with enough food for 2. Didn't get it right at this place.

Thank Gin-Ginnie
