    They made our 10 year anniversary so special!! Even if they didn’t go the extra mile for us, their food is ahhmazing and I would keep going for that! Since they did give us dessert and a bottle of champagne on the house, it made our dinner extra sweet!

    We started off with a round of kitchen sink bloody Mary’s. They were great. Then I had the shrimp and grits and it was quite tasty. My sister-in-law had the crab omelette and loved it. My husband had the eggs Benedict and said the were cooked perfectly. It was a wonderful Sunday Brunch:

    This is usually our favorite spot but this time it wasn’t such a great experience. Service was good, food was mid, a lot of noise, and the whole parking situation was a change that I could have done without. Portions were smaller as well. Definitely not our favorite date spot anymore.

    We dined at Scott's for Valentines Day dinner. We were seated on time, and promptly attended to. We ordered drinks and salads with our dinner, but were surprised to see how quickly our main course arrived. We did not get through eating half our salads. Our waiter apologized, and we shifted our attention to our steaks and filet mignon, so they would not get cold. I'm guessing since it was a special menu, the meals were stacked up and ready to go, hence the rushed service. Surprisingly at around 8:00 we counted at least 4 empty tables, so not sure what the rush to get us moving along was.

    It was Valentine’s Day and we drove overtime 30 min to get there but there was a accident that caused us to get to our reservation. Fortunately I had messaged the restaurant before arrival time to inform them of our delay. Because the host turned us away on arrival, but I talked to the manager and showed that I had contacted them prior to our 16 min late arrival. So we had a good meal and service. Only thing is I was looking forward to views of the river which they no longer have. They put up a giant long tall fish bin water mural that blocks the view of the river.

    Hey Felicia, we're delighted to hear that you made it through and had a positive overall experience. The sound wall was erected by the US Army Corps of Engineers as part of the levee construction. Instead of facing a dull concrete barrier, which we had no say over, we believed that commissioning a mural by local artist Stephanie Taylor would greatly enhance the space.

    Scott's has been our favorite restaurant for as long as we can remember. Our favorite dish is the macadamia nut encrusted halibut when it is in-season. But the sea bass is almost as good! I'm hopeful the renovations will be completed soon so we can get our view of the river back... Thanks for your great service and food!

    I have not been to Scott's in a while, but the food was okay, not the best. I think the portions were a touch small for price of the plates we ordered. Service was extremely slow and non attentive. Several times we had to ask for a server including for ordering our meal. They had taken our drink orders and appetizers but didn't come back for the dinner order until we asked. At one point we asked for some more bread but it never came. Overall, it was okay, but I don't think we will be going back anytime soon.

    I decided to treat myself to a beautiful lunch to celebrate my 77th Birthday. I enjoyed top service as I chose to sit in the bar area to avoid a big empty table in the dining room. Excellent service, tasty coconut shrimp with mango chile sauce, a combination shrimp, crab, with all the fixings beautifully prepared Louis. I had drinks delivered to me by very kind patrons who were aware of my celebration, but Scott’s gave me a bottle of sparkling wine for my birthday. The food, the ambiance, the care given you as a diner and the gorgeous plating of the food is why I frequent Scott’s.

    Came in for appetizers with our birthady guest and thats was good. We decided to stay for dinner and the first round of food was warm but not hot. Seems the food was sitting for awhile. Our guest ordered cheese burgers but they were over cooked, and we're annoyed by this issue. My wife and my dinner were warm and not hot as would be expected. The manager came over and and asked how he could make our dinners better. We explained and he removed the dishes. We were also given a choice to have the same order or something else. My wife and I chosed the Wedge salad it was great! Since it was ours friends birthday, we wanted it special and turned out to be not. We haven't decided whether we we will be returning for future meals. The service seemed very good.

    Seafood Tower!!! What an amazing combination of flavors. We were able to swap the oysters for more coconut shrimp and it was the best! The clams came in a rich sauce that was delish on its own! A really fun date night, excellent service, and food that was fun to share. A bonus was the price!!! We will make this a regular spot. Can’t wait for the warm nights of summer to eat outside at such a pretty location.

    We have most of family events at Scott's. The service was great and food perfect. There a few options I wish they would add but nothing earth shaking. Our server went above and beyond for the two birthdays we were celebrating. My only concern is parking. Two of three valets were very unprofessional and rude to our family.

    Service was great. Filet mignon was average, sauce was inedible (WAY too much salt), shrimp was rubbery, and mashed potatoes tasted like what boxed mashed potatoes would taste like. Never left a review this bad for a restaurant. We won't be returning or recommending to anyone.

    We sat @ the Bar. The bartender whose name we neglected to get was as amazing as the Crab Stuffed Lobster Tail special. We broke our Dry January rule and split a bottle of Schramsberg because we were Celebrating my Bday. They bought us dessert and gave be us a bottle of wine to Take home. The evening couldn’t have been better! Can’t wait to go back and do it all over again! Thanks for the great food and service!

    I love Scott's. However, they now require valet parking @ $8/pop. And this time, my crab and shrimp melt wasn't warm through and the table next to us was so loud (party of 8) that we could no longer hear each other. My friends really liked their Louies, and my husband's sandwich was warm through...
