Scotty's owns Thr3e Wise Men Brewery, whose beers are featured prominently. Thr3e Wise Men also has a standalone brewery and restaurant in Indianapolis. I tasted their Brown Ale called @BrewhouseBrown #Awesomesauce (I guess they're big Twitter fans) and liked it. For dinner, I ordered the quarter pound Cajun burger, which had a great spicy kick to it.
If you're into bigger meals, you can get a half pound burger. Or better yet, put on your sweatpants and order up the 32 oz. Big Ass Brewhouse Burger! Defibrillator not included.
Scotty's is a good place to sample local beers, get a burger, and watch a game. The food, beer, and service were great. It does have chain restaurant vibe, though. I don't mean that in a negative way—it just does. On a closing note, terry cloth napkins are awesome!
