We requested individual checks, but the waitress stated she was not allowed. Some people consume alcohol and some don’t and prefer not to pay for others drinks. In the southern states , a group does not need to ask, it is automatically done. So next time we will go else where.

This was a family celebration for my Mom's 91st birthday. We were a group of 13 and everyone was happy with their meal selection and the service we received. No one has to wait for anything and the wait staff was so courteous and accommodating. I would definitely revisit this establishment.

The brunch was fantastic! The food was beyond delicious and beautifully presented with everything kept well filled and neat. Our server and the staff that worked the omelet and carving stations were efficient, friendly and accommodating, and the staff that removed the used plates were right there and seamless when you were ready. The desserts were varied and decadent. The only weak point was that the coffee was really pretty weak. All in all, a delightful experience and I am looking forward to enjoying the brunch again -- hopefully soon!!

We were able to sit outside on a perfect evening; it was gorgeous to look out on the golf course as the sun set. The salads were very good - not too large and not over-dressed. The bean patty burger I ordered was a little mushy, but not unmanageable, and the flavors were good. Service was prompt and attentive, even though there was at least one event going on simultaneously. The classic rock live music was enjoyable, and at a tasteful volume, even seated just a few tables away from the performers.

I made my reservation via Open Table on Saturday morning with the option to sit outside. I received a phone call Saturday afternoon to confirm my reservation. I confirmed and reminded that it was for an outside table. I was advised I did not select that option and I know I did via the red button on the Open Table App. however I was told I can still sit outside. When seated I asked for another table closer to the end of the golf course to enjoy the golf course view but was told the tables were already reserved. There were four empty tables where I wanted to sit. What happened to my reservation? My wine glass was sent back because it was filthy. There were also many flies and I could not enjoy my food. The prices are very expensive and you don't even get a salad with your entrée.

The food was very good, the place was inviting, neat and clean. However, we were pestered with 4 to 5 flies while we ate our meal, that was very annoying … perhaps a door or window was open.

It was my husband's 60th bday. I purchased a round of golf for two plus cart for a couple weeks from now. I called in advance of this brunch asking for a window seat so he could view the golf course. I arranged in advance for cake and a candle to come out so kids could sing to grandpop. When we arrived the hostess said she couldn't give me a window seat, all taken even tho I made reservations so we sat in middle of floor and cake came out with my check as I was leaving. So very disappointed. We looked forward to this 60th celebration at Scotland Run.

2 couples come for the appetizer special. In had to tortiline with vodka sauce and one glass of wine. This special was plentiful and tasty didn't even finish as I was full. My husband and friends got 2 apps each the burger sliders with side pasta salad and the bam bam shrimp were delish as they had nothing left. We left full and satisfies. Go go the apps and drink special you will be happy you be. Service was spot on and quick. We eat inside because it was very hot next time we will go for outside seating.

Don't let the fancy golf club atmosphere fool you because the Sunday brunch is not worth the $20 per person price tag. It is a standard faire buffet with nothing to write home about. The food (with the exception of the made to order omelettes, carving meats and waffles) is lukewarm with minimal flavor. The service is marginal at best, but once a party or event comes in, forget it. Save your money and go to a local diner for a great breakfast.

Wonderful ambience on the patio with the music. It seems they have plenty of waitstaff help and busboys. The hostess was very sweet and accommodating to us. It was an overall wonderful evening. An added bonus was that there was a wedding taking place and there were fireworks in the sky Complements of the wedding reception. And I loved the pineapple Yum Yum

We sat outside and it was nice looking over the golf course while enjoying our dinner and conversation. I ordered the chicken pot pie and it was one of the best I had. My son ordered the Mexican burger and said he wished they would serve it at his reception. The creme brûlée with a shot of champagne ended our evening on a perfect note.

Just wish the food was better... it could be awesome with the right items... like need antipasto on the menu and they need real pepperoni not out of a bag and out of the bag crackers... for the price of the shrimp cocktail it was like frozen thawed shrimp.... we love the place just wish the restaurant took more time about the food! The sandwiches are good, burgers are good... just needs a refresher....

My husband and I got married at Scotland Run last year, so we wanted to go back to celebrate our anniversary. Also, we had an anniversary dinner included in our wedding package. If we were trying out Scotland Run to see if we wanted to get married there, we wouldn’t have picked it. The service was awful. We sat outside because the inside was packed with everyone watching the Kentucky Derby, which made the whole place very loud. The music outside was also very loud, which didn’t create a nice ambiance at all. Our server kept forgetting about us and made no attempt to wish us a happy anniversary or make us feel special at all. The hostess was the only person who acknowledged our anniversary. We usually wouldn’t care about that, but this is where we got married at a year ago. We thought they would be sure to make our night feel special.

The food wasn’t very good either. The Sicilian calamari was soggy and not what we expected at all. My husband ordered the filet medium rare and it came out charred on the outside and very rare on the inside. I ordered the chicken caprese and subbed out the mashed potatoes for linguini. My chicken was smothered in a red pepper sauce, but my linguini didn’t have any sauce on it. I also ordered a side of shrimp and it was over cooked. Both my food and my husband’s was flavorless. Our server didn’t come to check on us until the end of our meal when we wanted to just get the check and leave. We’re really disappointed with our experience here. Even though this is our wedding venue and we had a beautiful and fun wedding, we will not be returning to Scotland Run. It is overpriced considering the subpar food and awful service you get.
