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.

Very good food and overall experience. We ordered appetizer with hopes that it would come out quickly, but it ended up coming with the meal, server seemed to be stretched kind of thin with a larger party.

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.

Food came out quick and was great. Service is great too . Since it’s southern inspired it can be a bit heavy so be mindful next time on how many starters and entrees to order

This was our first time at Scout. We all loved it. Food was fantastic and fish centric which really suits me. The mussels are wonderful. Great bar, too. The only drawback I can recall is that it was just TOO LOUD. There is no soft area in the whole place that would absorb some of the noise. Was very difficult to carry on a conversation with the four of us at our table. We had to yell at each other and even then couldn't understand everyone. But we loved the food.

Perfect place for a Sat or Sun morning brunch birthday celebration. Comfortable booth seating with a welcoming wait staff. Virginia is fine server who really demonstrates the patience needed for our crowd . She has served us twice in the past month and were are eager to return. The drinks and appetizers (wings and deviled eggs) were superb and the menu has plenty of options. We were there for three hours and never felt rushed or ignored. Crab cakes are delicious and omelets are excellent, fresh and hot. Bread pudding and donut holes at the end capped a great time. We'll be back soon.

I enjoyed my appetizer, entree, and dessert, though the entree was a bit cold and the potatoes seemed a bit undercooked. The flavor of the chicken,however, was amazing! Would love to try again for brunch.
