Like Hiroshima and 9/11. NEVER AGAIN! The only thing worse than the food is the service. Just don't do it.

Menu a little limited but quality and quantity of food pretty good. It is a typical diner menu but prices are very reasonable. Atmosphere retro 50's/60's so expect Elvis music or similar. Worth a try for decent food at a decent price.

I find the Scotia Diner to be very consistent with their service and quality of their meals. They are NOT open Saturday or Sunday for dinner. When going there expect a retro atmosphere, friendly service, and very generous portions.

Great for the family! Classic diner decor. Food is good but nothing to write home about. Staff was friendly but it took a little longer than necessary to pay the check.

The funky 1950's decor gave us high hopes when we entered. We wanted to like this place. The food, however, was mediocre and the service abysmal. My husband's omelette was burnt and I couldn't figure out what substance was spread on my toast- it wasn't...More

I don't get the negative reviews. We found the Scotia Diner to be exactly what it's meant to be. A quirky, no frills tiny village local spot with some charm and some pretty good food. The staff were all polite, friendly and accommodating. The decor...More
