We are staying at The Statler and saw on FB that LeFreak were performing. We decided to book a table. The drinks were good, the food was good and the music and energy was great!

The 80s band was great. Food was delicious. Drinks were well made. But service was forgetful and very, very slow. Go for the overall experience that just happens to also include good food. Don't go with dinner as your priority.

Great food, great service. Only negative was when we got there it was super loud, but still fun and at a level that you could hear the people at your table, but then they cranked it up to an 11 and conversation was not happening. Still a great place though!!!!!

The hostess was very accommodating and was able to switch our table based on our request to a high top. Drinks and food were delicious and the service was attentive and quick. We had a large table and she was able to split our tab with zero problems. Fun casual environment.

We had a great time on our night out at Scout! We went for dinner and to see a band that was performing on a Saturday night. The atmosphere was fun, but not too crowded. The food was good and reasonably priced for the area. I loved my cocktail!

Scout is a great place for a night out, especially when live music is featured. On the night we visited, our server, Darrin, was very attentive and nice,even though he had several tables to take care of. He even continued to check in on us when we moved to the bar for a better view of the band. We had the fajitas for two, which were very good. It was more food than my wife and I could eat, and reasonably priced at $35. Scout has a great selection of wine and draft beer, and serves solid cocktails. And of course, it's a great place for people watching because it draws a very diverse crowd. We'll be regulars at Scout.

Loved the design, the menu, the quality of the food. Highly recommend the white bean hummus and bucket of chicken. Overall it was super loud and hard to have a conversation. They take your card at the beginning to start a tab, so immediately it felt like we were at a bar and not out for a diner date. Think the combo of activities/dining wasn’t as fun as we thought it would be, made it kind of too busy to completely enjoy our time.

Did is not bad, but nothing special either. The sound system is just horrible, time to spend some money on real equipment for live bands and in a sound guy that knows what he is doing. Mid frequency were over the roof no definition no punch from low freq. Just deplorable if u enjoy that is a sign u are drunk already.

Poor service, there was no hostess. Had to flag down a server to be seated. No one approached the table for a good 15 minutes. My friends and I ordered different drinks, both were extremely watered down. Food came, I was missing the dressing I specifically requested. We had no napkins or utensil, server was pretending we didn’t exist so we had to get up and steal a batch from a another table. Food was very underwhelming. Had to flag down the server for a to go box and the bills. Never asked how the food or drinks were, he printed my bill (more expensive one) twice and gave it to my friend too. When brought up, he said “oh, I thought it was weird y’all had the same total”... what a joke. Literally noticed the problem before hand but chose to be lazy and neglectful. Waste of time and money. Do not bring your friends, family, or colleagues here unless you want to be embarrassed.

Reviews that claim they had fun here must’ve arrived already drunk.

cool vibe and our server was so nice. the food was not very good especially for the price. steak frites was chewy skirt steak with waffle fries - not good at all. bar drinks were so so. we were there to see a band and the feel was fun. will come back to give it another try for cocktails but don’t recommend if you are looking for full on dinner.

No one said anything about the birthday celebration even though I selected this and added a note in Open Table. I requested a high top table and the hosted tried to put together other regular tables. She did not even look at the reservation notes. It was not busy at all but the server was really slow and kept asked no the same questions over and over.
We had a great time playing ping pong and foos ball and the food was good

Made a reservation and then waited for the hostess to seat us. After 5 minutes I went to the bar to see where I could sit. The bartender curtly me to wait for the hostess. I informed him I have been waiting and wanted to be seated. He readjusted his attitude and let us sit wherever. The service and food were only okay for the price. Not inclined to go back.

Super unorganized!!!! We were there for Thanksgiving, I called the day before to verify everything and it was still a total mess. The staff had no idea what was going on, they were moving furniture around bumping and knocking things over. The kitchen closed for over an hour but no one told us. The manager did a great job of totAlly ignoring us and wouldn’t make eye contact. Our server however was fantastic and did his best to keep us happy. The place is cool, the kids enjoyed the games and the food (they only offered us the bar menu) was just ok.
Poorly managed holiday for sure disappointing.

We came here for Thanksgiving and would love to come back again! Scout had a great buffet of homestyle Thanksgiving food (deep fried turkey, prime rib, cornbread stuffing, brussels sprouts with bacon, cranberries, etc) and it was almost as good as homemade! Everything was seasoned perfectly! Based on how well all of this was, we would definitely like to come back to eat off of their regular menu. Because we were in a little bit of a rush, we did not play any of the games that are here (bowling, pool, foosball, ping pong) but would be a really fun night out to come here for dinner and games. Very hip environment. Service was a little slow, but very friendly.

We chose the Scout as a Team Building event and dinner. We chose high top seating and played doubles ping pong while awaiting our appetizers. Lots of laughter as a result. We reserved one of the four bowling lanes and we were up as soon as we finished our dinner. Food and atmosphere met expectations and the bowling was a great event! A must for large groups!

On a sour note:
-One Member in our party is a professional musician and we asked permission for him to play the baby grand piano in the lobby and it was granted by our server. A crowd began to gather to admire his playing, but we were quickly met by security to cease and desist. We were then told ‘nobody touches the piano’. Very disappointing.
