    We love New Scotland especially typically their food. Nachos are the best in the city. This evenings food was disappointing. The food for our table of 5 adults and two infants took over an hour. All the tables in the restaurant were the same being delivered all at once. I suspect there was some sort of issue in the kitchen. Which I get happens however the fries for two of the entries were cold and I found the burger week burger over cooked, dry with little flavour. I anticipated the burger to be flavourful and delicious from the description and price point. As mentioned we love New Scotland and will definitely go back with hopes the food will be back to were it was. The service remind good.

    Our first burger for burger week was delish! Was busy but we were not pressed for time. Enjoyed hanging out and then splitting the burger (we were going to another place for a 2nd one to share). A fun Saturday evening.

    So glad we went here. Service, food and drinks amazing. Love the vodka sodas. I regret not picking some up to take home. The singer was sick so a little disappointed but, that cannot be controlled. The noise level was high, so tough to talk for first date. Wish the chairs were more comfortable. You need a bit more room. Liked the ambience better when turned lights down. I will surely return however. Thank you. I do recommend this place.

    A cool spot in Downtown Dartmouth. Love local! The seating options were limited when we arrived, even though the place was empty, since there were later reservations coming in to listen to music. The seats we were given were honestly very uncomfortable (high stools with no backs). The service was great and food was good. The nachos with chicken on top were particularly delicious.

    The food was good, but the flavours were pretty basic. The fish cakes, while tasty, didn't have a lot of flavour to them and weren't worth $22. The smash burger and fries were also pretty typical and basic,and not really worth the money
