Arriving for your meal by boat only enhances the experience -- an option at Scotty's, where humble plastic tables await, shaded from the sun by an awning. As you drink deeply an ice-cold beer (or, if you're working, an ice-cold tea), you can watch the boats chug past the outdoor patio. The seafood-slanted fare is simple but includes a tasty seafood chowder and a juicy and flavorful blackened dolphin sandwich -- a substantial slice of fish aptly accented by a slathering of tartar sauce and a caesar salad side. And for all that water view, the prices won't sink you, with entrées averaging around $7.

Always laid back. Well not always, sometimes you can see how hurried the staff seems to be when the place is standing room only. The food is good and quite inexpensive. You can't beat the view either. And there is live music on the weekends, Be sure to catch Kevin Hurley on Sundays if you like a bit of the classic rock and roll tunes mixed even with a few newer ones. During the rainy season bring your mosquito repellent. I didn't see Deet anywhere on the menu.
There's something surreal about the light reflected off Biscayne Bay and into the thatch-roof shade of Scotty's. Maybe it's a combination of the sea air and the proximity to another vortex of surreality, Miami's city hall. It can be accessed only from the water, or by threading one's way through the edge of a boat yard. Hiding behind the marina, this place has managed to largely escape the gentrification of Coconut Grove, and thus remains a haven of fringe characters (and that's not only the... More »
Dining, technically speaking, refers to the evening repast. Scotty's is best enjoyed mid-to-late afternoon, when the lunch crush is over. Take refuge from the sun under the green-and-white canopy. Order up a bucket of ice-cold beers to accompany a dolphin sandwich or a burger (the menu is blissfully straightforward and unrefined), and soak up the view of the marina, bay, and Key Biscayne in a relaxed, unpretentious atmosphere.

Scotty's fish sandwich is an ode to simplicity. A slab of fresh dolphin grilled to perfection and served on a bun with lettuce and tomato. Tartar sauce on the side. Eat it while sitting on Scotty's long wooden deck overlooking Biscayne Bay. Just beware the sharks. No, not in the bay. Miami City Hall, right next door. More »
Recipe for a perfect lunch: Head over to Scotty's Landing, preferably by boat. Sit at a humble plastic table shaded from the sun by a canopy of green-burlap umbrellas. Drink deeply an ice-cold beer (or, if you're working, an ice-cold tea). Order the dolphin sandwich, blackened, with a caesar salad side. Watch the boats chug past the outdoor patio. Check out the politicians and lobbyists ducking in from nearby Miami City Hall. When your simple meal arrives, slather the substantial slice of... More »
