My family and I have been coming to eat at Scotty’s Brewhouse since our daughter Lily, now 6, was just a baby. We have consistently liked their food, beer, service and restaurant layout. We mostly go to the 96th Street location because it is closest to our house, but we’ve been to several other locations over the years. Parking is usually very easy to find in the adjoining lot.
The biggest draw for our family is that Scotty’s has a pretty good kids menu and kids eat for $2 both on Sundays and Tuesdays! My son is 9 and he still enjoys ordering off the kid’s menu, although not for too much longer as his appetite grows! Since we have young kids and can’t always get a babysitter, we like coming to Scotty’s where we don’t have to spend a ton of money on the kid’s food, while also getting a meal and beer for the grown-ups! Scotty’s is also a great place to meet up with other friends who have kids – there are several larger tables available throughout the restaurant of the 96th Street location.
A couple other kid-friendly features are the mini play area and the treasure box that the server will offer at the end of our meal. From the treasure box, the kids can pick out a small toy. I keep wondering when my son will stop wanting the treasure box, but at 9 he still wants to select a toy. It’s that kid-friendly touch that keeps us choosing Scotty’s over other restaurants for our occasional family dinners out. Scotty’s restaurants have Wi-Fi and we sometimes bring the kid’s tablets to stream a show or play games so my husband and I can connect with some conversation before our food arrives.
