My favorite place in miami – This place wasn't on diners drive ins and dives for no reason. I'm there every wednesday for karaoke night even though i only sing when i've had too many ice cold beers from my favorite bartender Josh. The food is excellent and the crowd is like no where else. You have to love these people this restaurant and the awesome food.

Penny Pinching Mgmt - Please avoid this place!!!! – My friends and I have been going to this place for a couple of years now on Wednesday nights which is karaoke night. The DJ does an excellent job and we enjoy HIS show, HOWEVER the way that customers are treated in this place - by the staff and ESPECIALLY by the management , is horrific. When we first started going there, five years ago, they had the air conditioning on what felt like 90 degrees - always with the excuse that it was getting fixed soon (and that lasted 5years) THEN they started 'reserving tables' as if they were 'Tavern on the Green' or some high class restaurant, instead of a run down bar with a decrepit ceiling and peeling paint!!!. But LAST NIGHTwas the LAST STRAW. I was told by the waitress that they were NO LONGER serving WATER when asked, and that you HAD to buy bottled water at $1.75 cents for what looked like a child size mini bottle, even though we had bought beer and food! RIDICULOUS!! And when I started looking around the room ALL THE TABLES IN THERE had glasses of water being served to THEM. They were obviously discriminating against the 'karaoke people' even though we have been loyal patrons of Scully's for 5 years. It's pretty sad that they think they'll 'get rich' by charging their customers for bottled water, are they so desperate??? I mean YES the place is falling apart and the ceiling DOES look like it will cave in any minute, but this is ridiculous!!!! I will not be going back there! The only good part of Scully's is Boogie Man George's karaoke show, but we will go see him at another location in order to avoid Scully's!!

THEY CHARGE FOR WATER!!!!! – Many of us frequent this place every Wed night, religiously, spending our hard-earned dollars on food & drink, bringing friends, having a great time at karaoke. Last night, they had the NERVE to NOT serve a glass of water to me - THEY INSISTED I BUY A TINY BOTTLE OF WATER FOR $1.75!!! I have never in my life heard of a restaurant doing this. It shows utter disregard, disrespect and disloyalty to customers who SUPPORT this restaurant/bar EVERY WEEK. UNBELIEVABLE. DO NOT GO HERE!!!

An average diner with decent prices. – Me and and my girlfriend only visit Scully's on Wednesday nights. We both agree think that the menu is somewhat comparable to a Denny's at best. We find the burgers, fries, chicken tenders palatable to say the least. Scully's does have a nice variety of beer, though it would be nice if they served brands like Killians or Amber Bach. The reason we only visit on Wednesdays is the karaoke, Boogieman George does an awesome job with his charm, charisma, friendliness, humor and clever wit. His sometime substitute Angi doesnt seem to know how to create a great karaoke sound but just enjoys parading around and annoying everyone like a two bit floozy. The biggest grievance we have about Scully's is why the management find it necessary to be misers with the air conditioning. Each time we visit , it seems that either the A/C is not on or not functioning (Ceiling fans now there is a concept! ) Maybe its a ploy for them to keep it humid and muggy so that you can spend more money on beverages. Its kind of odd seeing the waiters and bartenders with perspiration on their foreheads when they shouldnt have to be. What kind of restaurant lets it customers suffer in the heat IN FLORIDA??

Friendly Irish pub raises the bar on what sports fan should expect out of bar food. – In Short
Who says that sports bar grub has to be boring? This longstanding tavern serves up the burger and wings basics, of course, but really turns heads with unexpected offerings like escargot, fried green tomatoes, and a clam strip-topped Caesar salad. The décor is more expected of a sports bar, though, with dining room booths surrounding billiard tables and raised table seating by the bar. It's a cozy watering hole, but it's also family friendly. Really. There's even a kid's menu to prove it.

WHAT A GREAT PLACE!!! ((( MY FIRST TIME THERE ))) – AFTER SEEING IT ON TV (DINERS, DRIVE-INS, AND DIVES) WE WENT LAST FRIDAY NIGHT. THERE WERE 6 OF US & WE ALL REALLY, REALLY ENJOYED OURSELVES!!! WE THOUGHT THE FOOD WAS GREAT & THE SERVICE TOO.

FIRST OF ALL, THEY HAVE A FULL BAR (LIQUOR), AS WELL AS BEER AND WINE (A NICE EXTENDED WINE LIST, TOO!). A FEW IN OUR GROUP HAD COCKTAILS.

WE ALL SHARED APPETIZERS...FRIED GREEN TOMATOES (LIKE MY MOM USED TO MAKE), ESCARGOT (EXCELLENT), PAN SEARED AHI TUNA (MY FAVORITE APPETIZER THAT WE ORDERED), & MUSCLES PROVENCAL (HUGE ORDER, VERY JUICY, AND FLAVORFUL).

FOR DINNER (AFTER SEEING IT ON TV) I HAD THE ENCRUSTED DOLPHIN SANDWICH (IT WAS AWESOME. I LOVED THE HOMEMADE TARTAR SAUCE), MY HUSBAND HAD A BIG NEW YORK STRIP STEAK THAT HE REALLY ENJOYED, MY FRIEND HAD THEIR PORK SHANK THAT WAS SERVED LIKE A STANDING RIB ROAST & IT HAD A GARLIC / ROSEMARY SAUCE OVER TOP (WHICH I TASTED AND IT WAS GOOD ON THE MASHED POTATOES). ANTOHER PERSON HAD THE FRIED SHRIMP DINNER (IT LOOKED GOOD-BUTTERFLIED OPEN-NOT TOO MUCH BREADING), SOMEONE ELSE HAD A SKIRT STEAK SANDWICH WITH GRILLED ONIONS & MELTED CHEESE, AND THE LAST PERSON IN OUR GROUP HAD SOUP AND SALAD (WHICH SHE SAID WAS GOOD).

OVERALL, WE WERE IMPRESSED!

THEY ALSO HAD A BAND THAT STARTED PLAYING LATER IN THE EVENING. THEY WERE GOOD TOO. THEY PLAYED CLASSIC ROCK!

I SAW THE MALE OWNER A COUPLE OF TIMES NEAR THE KITCHEN AREA & THE FEMALE OWNER CAME BY OUR TABLE TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING WAS OK. SHE SEEMED NICE. I WAS IMPRESSED SINCE YOU NEVER SEE OWNERS COME TO YOUR TABLE AT "MOM & POP" PLACES LIKE YOU DO AT CHAIN RESTAURANTS.

WE WILL DEFINITELY GO AGAIN...SOON I HOPE!

Great for everyone, fine dining in a casual place where drinks are served with a smile. – Look I work there, and I am happy to say that I have never been employed by nicer, more conscientious owners, who work there all the time to make sure that the food and service are a step or four above the rest. Sure there might be moments where all things cannot be done the way we would like them done, though we do try to offer the best food at prices that are not cheap, yet reasonable. Chris and Cass, the owners there, are constantly trying to offer an impressive meal in a festive atmosphere. There is music being played on most evenings, TVs to catch up on your important political or sporting events and pool tables to see who really has skills. All of which can be enjoyed while eating delicious mussels in a garlic and white wine sauce, and then cutting into a thick steak any evening or the Prime Rib that is available only during Wednesdays dinner that starts at 6 PM. There are moments during the rush of customers that TV time has brought us, when our customers have not received the courteous service that we encourage our employees to offer, and for this to happen at any time we truly feel disappointed in that we let the customer down. We do look forward to serving up great cuisine at decent prices and hope that if you are in Scully's neighborhood and are hungry that you stop by and stay for the fun.

If I could give it 0 stars I would! – As I watched Diners, Drive-ins and Dives I saw they had featured Scully's Tavern on their episode "Something Different". Guy Fieri made it seem like Scully's was some kind of hidden gem. Well, if u ask me, I would have rather they kept it hidden!!! We had the Incrusted Dolphin Sandwich that was featured on the show and it was nothing to brag about. We also had the Scampi Wings that were also featured on the show and they were also NOTHING to brag about. The chicken fingers sucked and the ribs weren't much better. All in all, I think Guy Fieri must have been DRUNK when he went to Scully's Tavern, and that's why he said the food was so good. And the food wasn't cheap either. They said they had lunch specials, but they weren't very special. I looked it up online before we went to see the prices and when we got to the restaurant the prices were jacked-up $2-$3 per entree. It set us back about $50....I would have rather gone to Outback Steackhouse and had two 16oz prime ribs with 2 for 1 drinks for that much money. Scully's is a bar and they dont even have any beer specials for happy hour...how happy is that???? Service was terrible as well, nobody was very friendly, even the owner was mean looking, even though he looked so happy-go-lucky on the show. What a rip off, I will never trust Guy Fieri again. He must have felt obligated to say this restaurant was any good because it SUCKED!!!! Don't waste your money. Go to Miller's Ale House instead and have a bunch of beer and the $10 35 shrimp....much cheapr and much tastier!!!
