Place has lots of local regulars, they have the menu memorized. I've had lunch and breakfast there, both were excellent. Good food, good prices. I will be back there. They have a side room and have an Elvis-themed dinner party every month.

Stopped for breakfast which usually like pizza even if it’s not great you can usually tolerate it. Not the case here....bland food...order was screwed up...fruit flies....and a Bloody Mary that literally was a pint glass of tomato juice with a celery stalk. Will not return.

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 place for any time of day. Great diner food. Might want to check if they're open though. Staff are very nice.

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.

Happened upon it on a day in Scotia and stopped in for lunch. Basic diner food with lots of retro show biz decor items. Atmosphere fun, food basic, not special. Average prices.
