Our style is industrial prohibition with a splash of steampunk thrown in for good measure. Find us on Queensgate and enjoy craft beers, vintage cocktails & some incredible comfort food!

Let us transport you to the speak-easy world of 1920's Chicago. Where the streets were ruled by unrelenting gangsters, and the drinks were inspired by the minds of geniuses. Scotch & Rye is our homage to the hard working, harder drinking people of that era, delivering our signature New York & Chicago inspired burgers and home-cookin', all washed down with great craft brews, unique (and award-winning) cocktail creations and a service team with an unmatched personality! We are also a dog-friendly bar! All well-behaved dogs are most welcome at Scotch & Rye.

Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult and vacate the premises by 10 pm.*
*Table with under 18s must book in for a meal and all be eating.

We look forward to hosting your safe, enjoyable dining & drinking experience.

    Was sat in the middle end table didn’t think anything off it until staff were constantly shouting at each other next to us. Food arrived and it literally had the texture of baby food unfortunately, but for the money wasn’t going to complain, and my partner just wanted to leave, and upon asking to pay the bill the waitress was very rude. Definitely wouldn’t return

    Eaten here before with a friend, it’s was good. Decided to take my partner for our anniversary but unfortunately it was pretty good. Burger was bland, very little flavour. Bottom of the bun was stale. Service was slow considering not many folk in although they did warn us. Shame as it was good the first time we went.

    Great vegan choices, the all about the beat burger was lovely. The cauliflower wings I had for starters were delicious. Great service, loved that my dog Bee was bought a bowl of water straight away. We already had water for her but a really nice touch. Thank you. Overall the place was nice, food excellent, service great, what more can you want. Ahh apart from a vegan desert, there wasn’t any on the menu, the only lie point😕. Will definitely go back though when We’re next in Inverness.

    Scotch & RyeResponded on 2 June 2022Hi KarenM, Thank you for leaving a great 5 star review! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our vegan food options and I will pass your feedback onto our chef about adding vegan desserts to take into consideration when we next update our menu. We are also pleased to hear that the service you received was great and we are looking forward to welcoming you and Bee back again soon. :)

    We booked a table here for our one year anniversary and wasn’t disappointed at all, excellent venue with a nice hip vibe to it, we had a young gentleman with longer hair (didn’t catch his name) but was very humble and attentive but not obtrusive and always made sure everything was okay with check backs and never let our glasses run empty. Only downside was staff members moving chairs and tables around us whilst we ate, but it was going into a busy Saturday evening so not much could be done. Food was top notch and cocktails went down a treat. A shoutout to the hemp cocktail, something I’ve never seen before! Will definitely be back.

    Neat prohibition bar & grill. Food menu is a bit small but I did enjoy the Mac n cheese which was a very good price. The prices we definitely reasonable here. Our food came out in no time and the only real hiccup we had was it took quite a while to get our bill and to pay. But overall I would definitely eat there again

    Whole place a bit dark. My starter was very poor prob the worst nachos I’ve had and probably the most expensive. Main courses were a bit better but again overpriced for what was served up. I would say the whole place needs revamped and they need to try far harder with menu and food presentation. I won’t be going back there in a hurry.

    We really enjoyed our visit to Scotch & Rye. The food was very nice and the service was fantastic. Lots of vegetarian options which was appreciated. We were impressed with the choice of non alcoholic cocktails, with vegan options. We tried two and they did not disappoint. The staff here are exceptional and very attentive. This was our first visit and we’ll definitely be back!

    My husband and I both got a burger. I believe the patties are frozen, and then thrown on the grill? They were not juicy, and did not have much flavor. I ended up taking two bites and that was it. : ( The chili for the chili fries also didn’t have much flavor. My husband added salt to it which helped a little. The best part was the drinks. Maybe we have different standards. This place has good reviews so try it for yourself and form an opinion!
