Met friends for lunch and had burgers, soup, fries and of course, you have to have the gravy with those fries. Great service. More

When we go to Bismarck, we try to not always eat at the same place. Found this place on TripAdvisor, so we went for lunch. It is a little off the path we usually take when in town, so used our map app. Didn't go inside, but went thru the drive-thru. Never having been before, we didn't know how the... More

This was my favorite place to eat when I lived here for many years. I just returned to the area and headed there right away to get my favorite double cheese with tarter. It was obvious that the meat was plinkers with little taste except the tarter sauce. The onion rings were so burned that they crunched like a cookie,... More

The new owner of Scotty's is bringing it back to its former greatness, The Rebel and Double cheese are as good as they used to be, they have gotten ahold of the original recipe for the tarter sauce on the Tarter burger

I had lunch here on Wednesday with a friend. The Oriental Chicken salad was excellent and large, plenty of dressing on the side and enough of everything. The jalapeno lemonade was super good. It was a little hot but the flavors complemented each other very well. Try it! (they have other flavors too) Service was very quick and the interior... More

Scotty's used to be the go to place back in the day. We would pull up with our hot rods and grab a burger and fries. It has decent food but nothing like it used to be. Was kind of disappointed as heard so many good things about it but was great by far the day we were there.
