“Bad service, bad food, not worth it”

Ranked #5 of 12 Restaurants in Derby
Cuisines: Seafood
Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 May 2014

Fri night, not too busy, group of 5 - took over an hour to receive food, then it was wrong/bad. When friends commented that the app tasted bad, nothing was offered to rectify issue. Order of wings came out 2 short, and then waitress acted as if I was wrong about the count. Wait staff blamed kitchen staff shortage. Waitress wanted to talk to "regular" customers instead of take care of issues. They were out of 2 beer varieties requested. Was highly disappointed, especially when you consider they just changed their menu and raised prices. Will not be returning anytime soon.

After waiting 40 minutes after we ordered our food, the waitress came out and said to us, "Sorry for the wait, we had an accident in the kitchen". WHAT?! Did you really just come to our table and say that out loud?! Ok fine but never an offer of a free drink or an app or even a piece of bread for the unbelievably unacceptable wait. BTW, I should have mentioned it was 5000 degrees in this place too, I don't think they have air conditioning or any ventilation of any kind. When the food finally came to the table, guess what, yep it was all wrong...and cold...and gross. Didn't finish it. TOTAL WASTE OF TIME. Not to mention the wonderful personality of the bartender...NOT! Will NEVER go back to this place and could never, in good conscience, recommend it.

This is an awesome neighborhood bar/restaurant located on old Lake Shore Road. The wings are big and amazing from grilled barbecue to garlic parm. Plus during Sabres games they run a special. I have never had a bad meal here. Argggg give it a try!

Went there on a Saturday night and was met with the most rude,disrespectful, and condescending attitude imaginable by the OWNER. Please do not go there...ever

A fun atmosphere at Scallywags which presents some really good food and a martini menu hard to pass up. Plenty of beer selections on tap and bottled. They have a chicken wing menu with some creative choices, including grilled wings. We loved the Caribbean music, a nice change from the usual rock. The location on Old Lakeshore Road affords a lovely trip viewing the beautiful homes on the Lake Erie shoreline. While not on the water, it doesn't matter the ambiance makes up for it. This is a local favorite and well run. It's worth the trip which is probably about 15 minutes from Hamburg. Kids will love the pirate decor and there are good things on the little matey menu. I noticed another diner's Caribbean Shrimp Salad, it looked sooo good, next time. But my burger was really good, I went home happy. Open for dinner only, Tuesday through Saturday opening at 4!
