    We've been to Scotts over the years. Recently though, the atmosphere has seemed to be a little chaotic. Anyway, the Halibut was amazing, and other dishes were good to. However they burnt my wife's vegetables. But the staff was friendly but a little too distracted I thought.

    Old-time favorite restaurant - have been out of state and thought we'd try Scott's Bar & Grill again - and it is better than ever! Food choices are fabulous - extensive wine list. All food was exquisitely prepared and beautifully presented. Service was impeccable. Deserts terrific also! We had Saturday dinner there and the restaurant was packed with people having fun together and enjoying there meals. A bit noisy- we asked through Open Table for a quiet table and were given a booth along back side wall and it worked great for us. Still a little noisy but OK. We had a great time and will be back again soon.

    We had an early dinner at Scott's and we ordered their earlybird specials. Three of us had the prime rib and my husband ordered the roasted chicken with Panko crumbs, and it was very dry. Very often I meet friends for lunch at Scott's and I never had a bad meal, so when I suggested Scott's everybody was up for it. Unfortunately my husband says he will not go back.

    We've had dinner here many times. The food and service have been excellent. This was my first brunch. I made reservations online and asked for the large round table for our mini family reunion. When my husband and I arrived it was set up perfectly. Our server introduced herself & got us drinks. The rest of our group arrived in the next 5 minutes, but we saw no sign of our server. It wasn't busy. She showed up 15 minutes later, took our order, then disappeared for another 15 minutes & still hadn't delivered coffee. When our food came, 2 of the egg dishes were cold. She had waited too long to bring out our food. The manager came out, apologized & had new hot dishes delivered. I would still recommend Scott's in spite of one bad server.

    My husband and I have been eating at Scott's Bar & Grill since 1984 and the food has always been great. We're still enjoying eating in this trendy, neighborhood place after all these years. The service is excellent, the menu offers an enticing array of choices and if we're lucky we even take something home to enjoy the next day. Because the place is so popular, it's a bustling, noisy atmosphere. Go there when you want to absorb some of the high energy and settle down for a great meal.

    Service was excellent and the food was good. I had the prime rib au jus and the meat was delicious but my preference, and I only speak for myself, would be to eliminate the carmelized (beautifully done, however) and the cheese. I really enjoy the beef flavor without the rest. My granddaughter, on the other hand, loved the sandwich as is. I would simply ask for that same sandwich, but the beef only. Asked for rare and it was and the beef alone was delicious.

    Food was very average, certainly not worth the price. Noise level high, to the point of disturbing. Irate bartender at the front of the restaurant crashing empty bottles into the waste cans was upsetting. Service was pedestrian. At least the server smiled. Will not return nor recommend.

    Jim and I were lucky to get last minute reservations at Scott's on a Friday nite at 7:00 pm.. They seated us promptly...we let our server know we were going to a concert and we ordered and were served right away.. We shared the steak bit appetizer, each had small dinner salad and bowl of soup. Great food as usual.

    App: Crab Artichoke Dip very good; nice size portion to share. French Onion Soup, very cheezy, hot, tasty and not salty which is a real plus! Fillet Mignon Steak, was told by Dad was very good and tender, looked amazing! Would highly recommend Scotts.

    They had a special birthday card on the table and dessert was served with a candle. Very nice presentation and lots of personal touches. The wait staff was attentive without being annoying and let us enjoy catching up with each other at a leisurely pace. The food was good and cooked perfectly. I had the steak salad cooked medium, another had the 3 salad sampler (good sized portions), and another had the artichoke crab sandwich. It was a wonderful night with great food.

    We have been dining at Scott's for many many years and have yet to be disappointed. The food is always top of the line and the service is outstanding. Whether we come for a family affair or just a dinner for two we love this place. The French Onion soup is certainly one of your finest features as my husband will attest to. Also there is a great variety of delicious salads. We always choose Scott's for our Mothers Day brunch. As you can see we love this place!

  • Maytag Blue Cheese
    Bread
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    I have to admit the Maytag Blue Cheese salad is my favorites! The Prawn Fettuccine was creamy with little bits of crunch, yummy. The Prime Rib was beautiful, but remember it is salty on the outside. A wonderful evening, and I got extra dinning points! The only thing I wonder about - Why is it that for two people they always give you three slices of bread. It just doesn't make sense and you always splitting the last piece. Guess it lets you see who is willing to share. I never did get the answer of why there was blue stuff in my bread the time I was here before, but that's another story. .

    Our waitress was great. The food was good ( the prime rib was a little tougher than I have had in the past there). There were some children talking very loudly near us,but sometimes that cannot be helped. We have grandchildren that we sometimes take with us to eat, but we don't allow them to yell at each other. However I realize this is difficult, if not impossible, for you, as management to control. Over all, we appreciated our tome there and will be back.

    I have been frequenting Scott's Bar and Grill for years now, it is a common go-to for special occasions, like mother's day, birthday, Easter. It is always hopping, and friendly. I just love the appetizers and the best drink is the "scratch margarita". I will hurry back soon. This last visit was 4 girls celebrating the 60th birthday for Barb, and it was so fun. Scott's gave a beautiful dessert to her.

I highly recommend their Parmesan crusted halibut cheeks - Buttermilk Fried Chicken -- French Onion Soup -- Maytag blue cheese salad -- Pea Salad....um, come to think of it I have never had a bad meal here. My husband swears by their classic cheeseburger and their steaks. And don't miss the Key Lime Pie for dessert. We try to dine here for lunch or dinner at least 3 times per month. Love it!

    Scott's Bar and Grill a nice place to have lunch and it's half way between where we live....one of us in Woodinville and the other in North Seattle. We were seated quickly because of our reservation but I was a little disappointed that we didn't get a booth. The waitress was prompt and friendly and gave some good suggestions which we ordered. The food was good.....not spectacular, but good. The staff was very friendly and I will definitely come back again.

    Bartender makes the best Long Island Iced Tea I've had. That was the primary reason I selected this restaurant Having been there twice before plus the food is pretty good. I find it somewhat contradictory that staff is dressed all in black which normally indicates fine dining but no linen table cloths and too noisy to go along with that idea. Some Clientele dressed to go to fast food joint instead.

    I've been going to Scott's for 20 years, and they are consistently good. Interesting this time in that they didn't have the reservation time we wanted (7:00 pm) so we had to select 7:30 pm on Open Table. What was bizarre is that we arrived around 6:45 pm and at least 60% of the tables were empty. By the time we left at 8:00, you could have shot a cannon through the restaurant. Not sure why they didn't show tables available on OpenTable, but I'm thinking they hold them back for walk-ins?

    I've been coming to Scotts on a regular basis for over 35 years - Before it was Scotts. This restaurant is one of very few in the Shoreline area thats worth going to, especially for dinner. Great American food - you can't go wrong with any dish. My suggestion... Starter: Crab artichoke dip with Scott Blue CHeese Maytag Salad, followed by Chicken Dijon and for dessert Key Lime Pie. The BEST Key Lime Pie I've ever had. The service is incredible, the vibe is great and the restaurant is incredibly clean.

    We have been dining at Scott's for decades (dating back to its Klinkerdagger days), and it is consistently reliable, from both a service and food standpoint. Not sure I've ever had a "bad" experience there, despite it being very busy on many occasions. Keep it up. :) I will say the new decor seems a bit lacking in warmth, and not quite enough sound-absorbing things (for my aging ears).
