I've never understood why there are so many Irish pubs but so few Scottish pubs, as I find Scottish beer on the whole to be much more interesting than its Irish counterpart. Fortunately, Scottish Arms is here to save the day. I've yet to visit Scotland, but this pub certainly FEELS like Scotland. Hardwood everywhere. Lots of Scottish flags and tartans. Signs for football games which are televised there. A beautiful bar.

Their beer selection is good (assorted Belhaven ales on tap, Skullsplitter in a bottle, a nice variety of regional microbrews) though I'd like to see more Scottish offerings on tap, and perhaps something on cask. Given the limited number of Scottish beers available in the U.S., however, it's certainly good enough. I also understand that they have an excellent whisky selection, though I'm not a whisky guy so I'll have to trust others on that one.

The food... Aw, man. The food here is AWESOME, particularly considering the Scottish aren't known for their fine cuisine. They have a peat-smoked cornish game hen that's incredible. They also have great sides like bubble and squeak as well as appetizers including deep-fried haggis balls (insert joke here). I did not have dessert there, but I hear the bread pudding is awesome. My perception of Scottish food has radically changed since visiting Scottish Arms.

Overall, a great place to visit for a pint or two and maybe dinner as well. It would be nice if they could grow their tap list a bit, but even if they don't I'll be returning whenever I get a chance.
