    Great food and service. Many patron wore their coats because of cold near the windows. That needs to be solved. Otherwise a wonderful experience and unique tastes.

    This is one of our regular go-to places. Always a fun dining experience. Our recent visit (1.13.23) was exceptional! Service was attentive as always. Cocktails were great. This time around, the flavors were fantastic and the dishes showed a real attention to detail. The deviled eggs w/ caviar and truffles, as well as the soup were so delicious. Will definitely be going back soon.

    Celebrated my Birthday with my family at Scout and Sherry was our waitperson! Amazing food, ambiance and service. The prices and portions are reasonable and a very relaxed atmosphere! Do yourself a favor and give them a try - we will be trying brunch soon since dinner was amazing!

    Scout delivers as always. They changed a few recipes which was a bit disappointing. Such as the chicken and waffles, the mesquite bbq seasoning on the chicken was off putting. The cheddar waffle they offered before was incredible and that was 69. Maybe because of texture. But I love this place and will give it another shot. Maybe they are trying new things in the kitchen.

    The food left much to be desired, which was disappointing because I’ve been here before and the food was great. I got the frittata and my friend got the prosciutto and poached eggs. Her bread was almost inedible - pretty much crouton level but not bite sized. Both of our plates needed salt and pepper to taste good. Our server was not the most attentive - I had to go find her twice. Our drinks were phenomenal.

    My partner and I went for a date night to check out Scout’s new menu and it didn’t disappoint. My husband ordered their updated Mason burger and says it competes as best in the city. I had the beet and goat cheese salad with grilled shrimp and it was also excellent. The pistachio vinaigrette is so good. Our server, Sheri, was awesome and all around it was a truly a five star experience. Thank you Scout!

    Unfortunately, we did not have a great experience at Scout. Everyone was nice but the food was underwhelming (ordered steak and eggs and did not get the eggs with the order). It took well over an hour for us to get our food due to some 'crisis' with the orders. I really wanted to have a great experience and was excited with a new chef but cannot say that we were impressed.

    I ordered steak Frits... steak was good, but the whole plate was stacked so full of fried that it was difficult to get at the steak. I was going to order the fish, but the best description I could get from my server was that it was not too fishy.

    We were sat right next to the entrance even though there were a lot of empty tables and booths throughout the restaurant. The server was inconsistent and infrequent. The food was either too sweet, too over cooked or too salty. Didn’t bother with dessert.

    We waited 20mins before someone asked us if we wanted coffee. We waited an additional 15mins before someone took our order and another 20 before being served. We were rarely checked on (unless we managed to make eye contact w various servers) and other customers who were seated AFTER us received their orders. We were the only brown couple in the restaurant and while we’re not sure if that played apart of the terrible service, it certainly seemed like it may have. Being short staffed is understandable. Having the server assigned to us completely forget about us despite initially being the third table in his section is absolutely negligent. We will never be returning to this restaurant.

    We always enjoy a good meal there. We all loved the snapper but the Parmesan grit cake was deep fried and too heavy for my liking. We loved the soft pretzel bites and the awesomely delicious lamb lollipop chops. Dessert was sinful! The manager said there is a new chef and the menu might change.

    I have struggled to eat at this restaurant as there always seems to be wait regardless of whether you have reservations or not. However, on a Thursday evening, I arrived 15 mins early for a dinner reservation and she said the table was ready. Hooray! But wouldn't let me sit down until my friend arrived (even though half of the tables were empty). Once we were seated, it took 10-15 mins for a server to come see us. We ordered a glass of wine and a cocktail and 2 appetizers and 2 entrees at the same time. The drinks took 30 mins to come out, and the appetizers another 30 mins. This was a Thursday with jazz night on the front lawn so they were expecting a crowd, although the restaurant wasn't full. Our server wasn't friendly at all and actually felt rude (she rolled her eyes at me when I asked her which of two wines I was considering she would recommend). We had to flag her down to order a second round and she tried several times to remove our plates/glasses before we were finished and felt like we were being rushed out at the end of the night. Never a smile or any small talk. I certainly understand how hard it's been the last 2 years in the restaurant industry, but for those prices and ambiance, I was expecting at least decent service. At least the food was really good though and the patio is very cute!

    Great place for families. We had two toddlers and were able to enjoy our meal without being worried about them being too loud or anything. Space is very open, bright, unique and welcoming. Plenty of space for kids to walk around outside while waiting for their food, if needed. The servers/staff made us feel welcome and the food/drinks were really good!

    General manager server and staff were very kind. Only issue was our food took a bit of time. May have just been bad luck. Manager and server were professional and kind about it. Drinks were also very good and well done. Was there with family and we had a wonderful time. Will come back and sit at the bar sometime.
