Aloha from Kaua'i!

Shoots, I wanted to try their very inexpensive breakfast buffet - too late it seems!

That is such a fabulous location view-wise, I hope someone takes advantage of it......

Didn't know that Andrew Doughty, of UKG fame, is the owner of Scotty's.

Aloha from Kaua'i!

Good, maybe I still have time to make the trek into Kapa'a with hubby for breakfast - it was something like $7.99 I think - we couldn't believe how inexpensive it was!

And.....I hope they still have their hot sauce....want to buy a couple bottles before they close!

Friggin' perfect Doughty is involved in something like this...

But he is just landlord/land owner.

Scotty just tenant.

Just adding to his karmic Aloha debt.

This is disappointing. Scotty's was are go to place for breakfast with my parents. There senior price is less then $7.00 a person. The food is decent, the view is incredible.

amberloo: Article says Doughty has ownership in Scotty's. His name appears along with a couple others and appears in "Contact Information" in following link for Whizz-Bang LLC Doing Bussiiness as Scotty's:

small loss. They really went down hill after the first year or so. Last time I was in the place was dirty and the food was nothing special to be kind. Maybe something better will reappear. The building is pretty weirdly built but that's the consequence of meeting new flood zone codes.

Well shoots, CT....

Then I guess I'm glad it wasn't a success.

But I feel for the employees and fellow investors.

(The writer of the PBN article missed that important fact.)

The restaurant could close well before sale as at $2.5 million as likely not to many folks lining up as buyer of the building, at least in my opinion. Listing is on the internet and says "Furniture, Fixtures, and Equipment Available". Also says "Liquor License may be transferred ....".

It's replacement may not be a "Scotty's" but when dust settles, maybe a restaurant better than what is there now.

While building for sale they are trying to find someone to lease space.
