I’ve never been to a marina much less walked through one. Scotty’s Landing is located right next to Grove Key Marina in Coconut Grove. Nelson is a big fan of this place and suggested we meet up for some lunch here. Somehow Nelson tricks me into sitting where he wants and I end up with a view of this tree.
While I was kidding about that, you can have a nice view of the water while there.
To start with we order the Hot Wings and some Nachos. The Wings actually arrive first and we dig in.
They are served with two packets of Blue Cheese and Celery Sticks. Nelson being the gentleman that he believes he is, hands me my packet. And then I realize why he’s so courteous. The packet is all covered in Buffalo Sauce while his is clean. I return the favor and smear Buffalo Sauce on his while he’s answering a phone call (there’s nothing like behaving like a child with your friends). The Wings have a nice Buffalo Sauce (not too hot) with a slight taste of Garlic.
The Nachos were your standard stuff topped with Nacho Cheese, Chili, Jalapenos and Black Olives. For our actual meal, we both order the Triple Cheeseburger (triple Cheese not triple Beef) and I also order a Chili Dog for good measure. The Triple Cheeseburger while good wasn’t going to set your heart on fire. It was served with Dinner Fries which I love.
The Chili Dog was also pretty good and I liked the Hot Dog better than the Chili topping. Sure, Scotty’s Landing doesn’t have the best Burger in town but if you’re looking for a place to relax, drink some ice cold beer and catch up with some friends then you’ve found the place.
