The motto at Scotty's Brewhouse is "Good Food, Good Brew, Good People" and NUVO readers obviously agree with all of the above. Multiple wins in multiple categories over the past few years have established Scotty's as a proven favorite. Having such a terrific menu and delicious food doesn't hurt. All the typical appetizers, sandwiches and burgers are there, but the fresh ingredients, imaginative sauces and spices (lotsa hot stuff!) make these taste better than many local restaurants not hosting sports fans and running a packed bar and patio.
