We were looking for a place near our hotel for a couple of beers and something to eat. Decided on Scully's and we were not disappointed. Service and food were very good. We had the Mahi fingers which were potato chip crusted and a burger, Both were very good in fact I will try the potato chip crust at home.... More

Great tavern, lively atmosphere, super friendly staff. I stop here for lunch and early dinner often when visiting the Kendall area. You will not find a better fresh fish sandwich! Great food, Great people! Don't pass this one up.

In a lonely strip mall sits an unassuming bar, Scully's. If you dare judge it from the outside, you may never venture inside. However, that would be a grand mistake. Scully's has a certain energy to it. When you walk in, everyone is truly having a good time. The crowd is older than you would find at Wynwood or SoBE,... More

We have been going to Scully's for over 5 years now. The food is great, prices are a little high for a bar but what made it special for us, as locals, was our waitress Laura and her daughter Janie. We found out last month that Laura left after working there forever as behind the scenes it's a very different... More

Came across this via Triple D listings. The potato chip crusted Mahi was awesome. There were 5 of us and we ordered the same thing on 2 different occasions in 3 days. And there's a lot of options in Miami. Doing a potato chip crust is no easy feat to get right. They hit it out of the park, technique... More

Probably the best mahi sandwich I've ever had! Encrusted dolphin sandwich is one of their most popular sandwiches. It's battered with crushed ruffle chips and fried. Amazing! Good beer selection also.

Met the owners last year in Key Largo. We visited their restaurant on our visit this year, they welcomed us like old friends. Great people! The atmosphere reminds me of the TV show Cheer's. Chris is a classically trained French chef and has elevated the normal bar cuisine. We sampled many items and loved them all. I especially like the... More

I came here on a Wednesday night for a quick dinner. There was a super loud band (but very good music), limited beer selection, and disappointing calamari. I was expecting better quality food and larger beer selection since it's a "tavern".

Yes the same one visited by Guy Fieri . When you first walk in fight the urge to leave, not the most well adorned sports bar ever . Its a throw back to the 70s and 80s but stay for the food which is fantastic .Not your typical bare fare but well thought out and interesting meals for a reasonable... More
