The food was good, but the service was slow despite an over abundance of workers. They seemed more interested in chatting with one another than attending to the customers. My husband’s hamburger was loaded despite him asking for it plain. And the dessert came out without ice cream even though we asked for a it. It seemed there was no one in charge.

Food quality and service is very consistent. Draft beer is really cold. Please keep that going!

Good service and flatbread was good. I (and friends) would go much more often if they had a good Cesar or grilled (or even fried) chicken salad. Need a good staple salad. Also so sad they took away the salmon appetizer and fried zucchini.

First time there, we thought since the name said “pub” it have more upbeat atmosphere. Service was good, food was good. Overall, Scouts might be where I would bring older family members for lunch.

This restaurant was understaffed and as a result we waited 25 mins for cocktails after placing our order. The food is ok, but absolutely nothing special. Our server was pleasant but slow, 10 mins for waters to be delivered while waiting for our cocktails. If you have to apologize more than 3 times that you still can’t bring our drinks you should send a manager and something should be comped. When she did deliver them she said “let me know if these need to be remade”...ok, that doesn’t bring us much confidence. Another server bumped my chair at least 4 times and only apologized on the last time...she could have been going a different way as our table was backed up to a wall with a hand sanitizer dispenser in it. This restaurant is 3 miles south of downtown Franklin and in a planned community. Go elsewhere, this restaurant was amateur hour at best.

Just meh. Nothing to go back for. Food was a sandwich I could make at home. Location is literally on the west edge of Franklin. Beer was good and it’s in busy, Neo classic American multi neighborhood. The kicker for us was the menu on this website wasn’t close to what was offered in the restaurant.

Scouts pub has a good varied menu. The burgers are delicious, pizzas are good and there are a few healthier options.
Wine list is good and there is an extensive bourbon list along with hand crafted cocktails.
Great outside seating area.
I would just like more dessert options.

This is amusing actually . Made a reservation and had it confirmed multiple times . Even had someone call me to confirm it. Turns out you were closed on Easter Sunday . And since then I’ve gotten multiple requests to review my experience. I ignored the first few .

Hi Stacy- I am so sorry for the confusion on Easter Sunday. We recently reactivated OpenTable to allow for online reservations post-Covid, and it wasn't turned off for Sunday. I do see where my Host called on Saturday to let you know that we would not be open on Easter, but it looks like she may have left a message and wasn't able to speak with you directly. Again, I do apologize for the error and I hope you will visit us again soon! -Gracie Bowman FOH Manager

We love their hamburgers, their appetizers, and the bar. After that we struggle w finding an entree on the menu that appeals to us. My husband had the fettuccine w chicken. The chicken was dry. We are rooting for them to do well but feel the value has gone down over the last year.

Nice patio seating but fans were not working so a bit hot.
Food was average. Mani sandwich had very little fish.

White sangria was horrible. Basically water with a bit of fruit.

After getting our drinks, we ordered an appetizer to share and our entrees. The next we saw of our waiter was when he delivered our entrees . He forgot to place the appetizer order with the kitchen. Waiter never came by to check on us to see if we wanted anything more to drink. In fact we finished our meal and waited 15 minutes before we finally got up to ask the hostess if she could get our check for us. No compensation made for forgetting our appetizer. Worst service I’ve had in a restaurant in years. It wasn’t as if they were covered up with business.

Would I recommend to a friend? Yes and No.
Yes, because I did have a great time and enjoyed everything I ordered.
No, because most of my friends don't want to pay $100 per couple at a pub.

I had The Riso dish for dinner, which was good, but slightly overpriced in my opinion. For some reason they charge $6 to add chicken to their $16 zucchini noodle dish... which seems slightly unreasonable to me. The cocktail selection was great. Service was great. Love the vibes.

Will probably return, but only for special occasion type dates.

If you have a beer on the menu but then say we haven't tapped that keg yet, what's the point? The burger was decent. The fries were overcooked in what tasted like oil that was very old. You could tell the staff was not working well together and it showed in the service to many of the customers not just our table.

Our first trip to Scouts, very pretty location and building. We came early and they sat us anyway outside as requested, not bad patio area kinda small. Our waiter seemed to have either to many tables or was forgetful, had to ask twice for silverware set up (which came after we finished our app) by the way the crispy Brussels sprouts are beyond!! Besides our waiter issues, good food and nice location. We would go back again to see if it was just our sever.

Our table had a pizza ( don't remember which one), salmon, fish and chips and one of their burgers. Everyone was extremely happy with their meal. Zack was our waiter and was very attentive without being overbearing. It is a small place, but it has great ambiance.
