Came for lunch, I had grilled shrimp tacos and my wife had salmon salad. The shrimp tacos were quite spicy but still very good, came with fries just ok. My wife’s salmon was excellent, fresh, perfectly cooked and a good size portion for a salad...More

This is one of my go to places when we head to the island. Sometimes it’s a little busy but there’s a reason for that. The food is great, they also have a small patio if you’d like to be outside.

Enjoyed the 1/2 priced happy hour offerings. Peel and eat shrimp was the best I have ever had. Sushi rolls (enjoyed the crab and tamay) delish! Our waitress, Misty, was quite attentive. Drink specials hit the mark. Only complaint would be lack of dockside ambience...More

Is the food gourmet?--of course not, this is a beach bar people! But the vibe is lively, the service friendly, and the menu offerings extensive--where else can you enjoy a 1/2 price beer ($3) with 1/2 price wings or mussels (24 in shell for $8!),...More

The number one question asked is “What does Scuttlebutt’s mean?” Well, we answer, The original context came from two nautical terms; the “butt” (picture a wooden keg) was a wooden cask that stored the fresh water when sailors were at sea. The “scuttle” was the area of the ship where the “butt” was stored. When it was break time, the sailors would gather at the “Scuttle Butt” and drink. This also became a social time, as they could all meet and talk. Now over the years the words joined together and became “scuttlebutt”. This word was used when people would gather together, typically at the office water fountain, and ask one another, “Hey, what’s the scuttlebutt with Jim in accounting?” Here is the official definition according to Meriam Webster; 1a : a cask on shipboard to contain freshwater for a day's use 2b: a drinking fountain on a ship or at a naval or marine installation 2: rumor, gossip. Now that you know what Scuttlebutt’s means, this is what we are about! Scuttlebutt’s is a full service restaurant and bar that truly is a place where everyone, from babies to baby-boomers, can get together and have a great time! Our menu is as equally diverse, with grilled peanut butter, banana and honey sandwiches, hand-cut rib eye steaks, oysters on the half shell and one of the best sushi bars around. Our premium craft beer wall and wine selection is top rated, and make sure to try our house made sangria or our signature Scuttlebutt’s punch. We are a scratch kitchen and our day starts in the wee-early mornings when the hard-working prep team arrives to bust out our house recipes. Another appeal to Scuttlebutt’s is that we offer Happy Hour every day (Yes, week-ends too!) from 3pm-7pm and we have live music every night (Yes, really, every night – unless the Dallas Cowboys are playing). We can easily accommodate larger groups as well as be the perfect spot for date night, which has turned into a marriage proposal on more than one occasion. Call ahead seating is available and we can help plan a perfect office party or celebration with custom menu options. Come visit us and become part of our Scuttle Family!
