In the restaurant business you have to keep it interesting. No matter how much people love your old favorites, if you aren’t introducing new foods people start to look for new places to dine. That’s why several times a year, the team at Scotty’s cook up a few new, interesting menu items.

This week I had a chance to preview a few of the items on their new summer menu, and the verdict… I need to go back to sample a few more.

My daughter Michelle, or @minipeg) and I split the chicken tacos. This is a great addition to the menu. Although there are peppers on the taco, the sauce is flavorful, but not spicy. This could definitely become a new favorite dish. The fruit salad was an interesting side choice, kind of like a grown up fruit cocktail. Refreshing, and a nice light combination.

We also split the berry spinach salad. The candied nuts and cheese worked really well with the balsamic dressing. If you have folks in your group who say things like, “No, I don’t want to go to Scotty’s everything on the menu is so heavy”, now they have a terrific option.


And if you aren’t looking for the lighter side of anything there are some awesome new burgers, including this one with a giant onion ring looked amazing.


The new menu items will be available by the end of the month, so if you haven’t been back to Scotty’s in awhile now is a good time to go back. And even if you were there just last week, there is something new to try!
