    The restaurant is a beautiful setting but unfortunately the food is very mediocre. The special today was French did sandwiches. Unquestionably the worst ones I have ever had. Didn’t come close to finishing mine.

    The kitchen was slammed. Our server offered a soup while we waited for our salad and appetizer. We declined, but the offer was appreciated. One dinner was good. The other dinner was over breaded and prawns were overcooked and dry with no flavor.

    I ordered the filet mignon & prawns combination. The fillet was very well seasoned and tender. The prawns appear to be frozen and not fresh. Also they were over cooked and came out rubbery. That was a disappointment for a restaurant of that caliber.

    Reservation delayed due to no wait staff showing up for shifts. Meal spent watching staff catch up on set up and fails to serve patrons. Was billed for additional meal not ordered. Did not see server again to have corrected. Left paying for overcharged meal

    Our reservation was at 6:45 pm. It was very packed and we were told they are behind. We were seated at around 7:05 pm. The food and drinks were served at a reasonable time. Our server was very nice. The food was DELICIOUS! The tables, chairs and decorations seem outdated. Overall experience was good.

    Inattentive service and literally cold food. The food had amazing flavor, but unfortunately all of our (x3) main courses were so cold that it couldn’t be enjoyed. Manager comped our drinks for the cold food and said “kitchen was swamped” was the reason for the cold food. At $40 a plate, this isn’t acceptable.

    Food was tasty, cooked right for us, but spent 2 hrs for dinner. Waiter not experienced. Did not check on us. Had to ask for after dinner coffee, never asked or told us what was available for dessert.We had to wait 40 min for entree. This was our first visit. Hope service improves. We had 6pm reserv. Didnt get food until about 7:15. Much too long of a wait.

    This was a bday brunch & mentioned occasion to hostess & on online Rez. At seating hostess said she’d mention bday occasion to server. It was never acknowledged or mentioned! Are birthdays NOT celebrated/acknowledged by Scotts? Or was the server forgetful? Disrespectful? The server was cordial but barely. Additional Minor annoyance: Refilled water glasses w/room temp tap water on this hot day.

    Scott's has never disappointed us! We are creatures of habit and often order the same menu item that we are so fond of, and every time we leave exceptionally satisfied. I love the halibut and my husband loves the cioppino! We often recommend Scott's to acquaintances, and often treat family and friends to this venue, all of whom come away quite pleased with the choice.

    Made a reservation for lunch. We arrived through a back entrance and noted many open tables on the patio. We let the hostess know we preferred to dine on the patio. She tried ti dissuade us from that by saying there was a 35 minute wait for patio seating. After I told her that we saw many available tables on the patio we were seated almost immediately at a patio table. I am not sure what the hostess was trying to accomplish, but it put me in a bad frame of mind almost the minute I walked in the place. Then the hostess’ minion sat us at the worst possible spot on the patio. When I called out other available tables I would rather sit at, the hostess minion said there was nothing to be done about it with many minion excuses pouring out of her. It was a beautiful day and we did enjoy the atmosphere in spite of our dreary 2 topper up against the column with a blocked view. The food was passable but nothing special. Waitress service was adequate for us but we noted a couple next door complaining about the slowness of their check. In My experience at this place “The customer is always (fill in the blank from the following)”. Not welcome? A pain in the neck? To be punished? I thought I might give it another try but… nah, probably not.

    Our clam chowder was excellent. I had the macadamia nut crusted Halibut with citrus rise and green beans. Everything tasted wonderful. My husband enjoyed the Gnocchi with Chicken and was too full to consider desert. Service was great. I liked the fact they allow you to finish your soup and/or appetizers before bringing your meal out. There was no rush. We had a reservation and were seated within just a few minutes of arrival. Would definitely go again.

    I didn't like the shrimp and grits, the grits were not as firm as I like them, the shrimp was overcooked, I didn't like the sauce and it was cold. I sent the shrimp and grits back and ordered something else. My friend sent eggs back because they weren't cooked the way she requested. By the time my second order came, my friend was finished eating. Our server was friendly, and the cocktails were good.

    This restaurant sits right on the river and had a nice ambiance. Even though we weren't able to get a patio table, we had a nice view from inside. The staff were friendly and the food came timely and was delicious. Parking is a little inconvenient but there was someone driving a golf cart that gave us a ride to and from our car, nice touch.

    We had reservations here, about two weeks ago (on a Sunday). Upon arriving, we were told there would be a one half hour wait. We left. This time, we made reservations for a Saturday lunch. Upon arriving, we were immediately seated. Restaurant less than one half full. My wife and I had the same entrees. The clam chowder was very good. We both had the shrimp/crab baked sandwiches. The servings were very large. We could have split the sandwich.The problem with this dish, was that it was just bland. We both only had 1/2 the sandwiches and took the other half home. Not sure if we will eat it.

    Went for a birthday brunch. Food was fine, may have been better if it had came to the table hot, and the service was not good. Maybe they were short staffed, maybe the server was having an off day, either way, we were bummed. After our food was dropped off, we didn’t see our server again until about 15 minutes after we stopped eating, with empty drinks and empty water glasses. We had hoped to get a second drink, but there was no opportunity. Luckily we had cash and could just drop and leave as I can’t imagine how long it would have taken to get our credit card picked up and returned. We left and went to another place for that second mimosa we were hoping for.

    My mom was unhappy with blackened salmon. Too spicy. My husbands crab melt: the bread was too thick. Should have been on thin toast like a bruschetta. He said the taste was dull.

    Excellent and interesting cocktails. My filet was a bit overcooked but still very tender. The scallops were divine and the chef made a little garlic butter for me in place of the demi glacé. Great place for a graduation celebration!
