Nice setup and ambience. At that price point I expected a fancier food presentation, but the taste was good.

Place was empty. Some of the food was great but the apps were not good and received no explanation of meat and cheese board even when we asked.

I enjoyed Scout as always...it was quiet and they followed safety precautions. The server was lovely and attentive. Get the flank steak!

Food was great. Waitress was not very attentive to our needs and not the most personable or engaging. For outdoor seating, they should consider additional heaters to accommodate for the covid conscious people who prefer outside seating. Overall, nice vibe and food was great.

We enjoyed an amazing brunch at Scout today! It was our first time dining out since Covid started in March. We made a reservation for noon and social distancing was absolutely no problem. Staff and customers all wearing masks and we were sat remotely away from other diners. Service was top notch and the food blew us away.

My husband had the Phoenix with Nashville style hot chicken and cheddar waffle and I had the Farmer’s Fritatta. After this meal, I may have to give them best brunch in the city. We had dined at Scout previously but the new brunch menu from their new chef exceeded expectations. And the mimosas we ordered just put this meal over the top.

We ate indoors and were very happy to experience how the staff took care of us. They all wore masks and were respectful of our space, making us feel comfortable indoors. The food was fantastic (especially hangar steak, braised beef and orzo) and the service was great!

Scout was a mess. We were seated outside under a dark tent with no lights or heaters. They seemed short staffed, and our waitress said that there was a big party in the back that we couldn’t see. The cocktails and appetizers were delicious, but the salmon entree was half-cooked at best. We received our second round of drinks when we got the check (we ordered them before our entrees). The timing of the whole meal was so totally off. This place has a lot of potential, but we won’t be returning.

We went for brunch to meet a friend. We were promptly greeted and sat outside. The server showed up within a minute and was very friendly and helpful. We never had an empty glass, the food showed up quickly and was delicious. Top notch crew and food here!!

Very limited menu. This place is more of a large group catering restaurant. Waitress recommended chicken sandwich. I got it. Pretty good. But expensive. Could have gone to chik filet.
Will never return. Waste of money.

The Hanger steak, Steelhead Trout and Short Rib with Orzo are money! Every time I get the steak, it is so tender and juicy. Shocking for a cut like a Hanger steak. Chef Crystal's addition has brought some nice new additions such as the Salmon Bites and the Short Rib with Orzo to name a few. We are definitely looking forward to trying each one of her new creations in a consistent basis. One of our favorite restaurants in Decatur and in Atlanta. Always top notch from a great crew. Don, Connor, Andrew, Dave and the rest of the team are some of the best people in the restaurant industry. Keep up the great work.

As always, Scout continues to impress. We are very excited for the new executive chef and menu changes that I am sure will benefit a growing customer base. One of the best locations and restaurant staffs in the city of Decatur. I want to name check the menu items including the Steelhead Trout, Hanger Steak and Short Rib with Orzo. They are all outstanding! Thanks again for being a reliable and consistent restaurant. Cheers!

The outside deck is a lovely place to sit and enjoy the sunset. The risk of catching the virus out there is likely to be quite low.

They should not attempt to make a ramen! It was bad! Plus there were very limited veggie options too. I hope they can update their menu.

Food was ok. A bit over seasoned with the salt and smoke. Even the donut holes tasted a bit smokey. Service was average -nice but not over the top. The ambiance was nice. I love the overall feel of the restaurant but think food couple be a bit better.
