We loved everything we ordered! The steak was delicious and the seafood trio was outstanding. To top it off the service was top notch. Casey was our server and he was so helpful and attentive. We would definitely revisit this restaurant.

We came to celebrate Jim’s 80th birthday. It was lovely to have one of the little private rooms. The food was excellent, as was the service. We did appreciate Scott’s stopping by towel On my way! Us and visit. Nice touch!

I must rave about the lamb which was perfectly cooked and seasoned. It really was nothing short of spectacular. My wife’s filet was also perfectly done. The apple crisp was too oatey for my taste but the portion easily fed two. We had a choice of the main floor but chose one of the small alcoves that are private and quieter. I would definitely eat here again.

This was our first trip to Scott's Downtown. We were not disappointed. It was an all-around great way to help celebrate our 50th anniversary - from the time we walked in the door until we left. We will definitely be back.

Great experience all around for our anniversary. Food is top notch. I got the special which was pompano fish over citrus risotto - Delicious! My wife had the filet which was cooked a perfect medium rare. Best Brussels sprouts we’ve ever had. You have to try them. Scott, the owner, came out to say hi to each of the tables- super nice guy. I highly recommend this place.
They also have a couple small rooms for meetings.

The food was really good but the service was not what we are use to. We were there an hour and twenty minutes before getting our entrée. There was a large party so we had to wait until they got their food.

We were seated immediately upon entering, and we were seated in a private alcove. Service was excellent, and the food was prepared perfectly. We both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and the food was a great value. My only complaint is the single malt scotch serving seemed light.

Just an awesome place. We are so lucky to have such a great place to have a great meal with the best service. Owned by the chef himself, we are lucky we don't have to travel to Atlanta to get such a great experience. I have tried so many different things on the menu and all are so good. Thank you .

Our experience was AMAZING!! I reserved a table for my sister’s 30th Birthday. The restaurant was empty (which was great for a more private experience) but the decor and ambiance were beautiful! Each entree was delicious and flavorful and the drinks were well crafted. The cherry on top was the amazing hospitality from our server Kristen (please forgive me if the spelling is incorrect) She was attentive, polite, and very accommodating. She knew the menu very well and was able to accommodate friend’s vegan needs!! She even offered to take a picture of all of us to commemorate the occasion!! Definitely would come back!!

It was our 50th Wedding Anniversary and chose Scott’s Downtown as a special place to celebrate the occasion.
The food could not have been better;
Everything was delicious. Our server was Kristen and she was excellent and
very attentive to us and our special occasion. Scott came by to greet us and to wish us a happy anniversary.
It was a very special evening for us.
