Scotty's may the best kept secret in Louisville. We actually visit regularly. It isn't fancy, and it doesn't want to be. Few cold beers on tap, decent bar selection. The pulled pork and ribs are both phenomenal, and the fried chicken may be the best...More

Fried chicken at a rib place. I wouldn't have thought it either. Quirky place with many regulars at the bar. Service can be slow and the sides could be better. BUT, the fried chicken is as good as I've had anywhere. Not it a rush?...More

Neighborhood bar. Good food, nice people. The chicken and the pizza are the best. Both may take 30 minutes or so. Chicken maybe a little longer. Cold beer. Can't beat it.

Neat place. Ribs and pizza are just amazing. I like the place. Don't understand why I have to say a hundred words to say it was great. Good food.

First time here. Ordered to go. Not given a greeting when coming in. The older woman looked very uninterested in speaking to us, didn't offer any assistance or suggestions, not even a little smile... very bad service. Food was ok. Didn't care for the bbq...More

After a very bad experience a year ago when we walked out after waiting for our food an hour, we decided to give them another try. We were assured by others that our first experience was highly unusual. It took half an hour to get...More

I just visited Scotty's for the second time in the last year. On both occasions, the results were mixed. Although this is a BBQ place, the ribs were not very good. Taste was just so-so and they were a bit tough. However their fried chicken...More
