I always enjoy dining at Scott’s. I had a wonderful time celebrating my friends birthday.
We enjoyed celebrating our 30th anniversary at Scott's. The service was fantastic, as was the meal.
Our waiter was outstanding and everything was perfect. A gentleman (I’m not sure who) was kind enough to bring one of the heaters over near our table. He must have seen us looking toward them longingly! We stayed a very long time and had a wonderful lunch visit.
I can’t wait to return
The atmosphere was very relaxing, the service was excellent and the food was outstanding. Dinner was served in a timely manner and our server, Dave or David, was very polite and accommodating. He made our dinner an amazing experience.
Great food, great scene! Service was a bit slow, but it worked out!
Service was excellent food was good but seating outside with cold weather make my soup congeal and my steak cold need more heaters at the patio
Great service! We had a great night.. the food was excellent complement to the chef’s.
Scott's on the river is our favorite place, excellent food and always friendly service.
We had a delightful time and our server was so nice and accommodating. We loved her!!
Great spot for seafood and delicious drinks! The ambiance is elegant, perfect for a date night.
Wonderful service and food! We were there on Friday night for Happy Hour for my birthday that had to be adjusted due to the rain. They made it work for social distancing and still celebrate. I appreciated their efforts so much, we went back on Sunday for dinner. Thank you Scott's Seafood for making a signature birthday special!
The menu and service was great
Food was great. Service was a little slow and servers did not seem to be all that into it.
Food was great, but they need more heaters in the outdoor dining area and the service was just okay. A lot of time in between the server checking on us and we waited about an hour for our food to come out.
The outdoor patio was set up very well. Plenty of tables that were set up ample distance from each other. Outdoor heaters and fireplaces placed around the patio.
Food was very good.. .. calamari, crab cakes, Caesar salads, fish and chips. Our server was excellent, made sure my husband's coffee was refilled without asking or waiting long. He also allowed us to linger and enjoy the afternoon. We had an enjoyable time.
Always good. Can always count on a great time at Scott's. Food,drink and service always above par. Enjoy during sunlight hours great views of the river.
Let’s all support this fabulous restaurant! Our dinners were delicious and the service was fantastic!
I had the special that was 2 tacos loaded with fabulous spicy shrimp, shreaded cabbage, sourcream sauce, guacamole and home made pico de gallo and chips. It was a huge serving and wonderful.
The staff was also wonderful.
Food was not great. Ordered filet mignon and scallops. Filet was so so, but scallops were great. The mashed potatoes were mediocre... standard boxed mashed potatoes. Expected better.
Service was okay but had to call server a couple of times.
Cocktail Margarita Mas Fina was outstanding.
Whatever shortcomings exist, the ambiance more than makes up for them. It is truly a beautiful place and we loved it.
The food is really excellent. We ate out on the porch and they had heaters and firepits which upped the ambience. The dinner was for a anniversary and it was really special.
The hostess was accommodating with our request to sit at the large rounded booth where we were isolated and felt safer. It was too cold to sit outside. The three of us ordered our favorite Pacific Rim salad with calamari, and it didn't disappoint. It was perfect. Our water glasses were refilled without asking. We were celebrating our birthdays and were treated to our dessert. We all ordered the chocolate decadent dessert to go. I shared it with my husband later, but I could have eaten the entire dessert myself! Even deconstructed, it was delicious.
We had a very relaxed and pleasant dining experience.
My husband and I shared our 1 year anniversary here and it was really nice
Stopped going here two years ago due to decline in quality, but they're back on point. Ribeye, Fillet, Lobster, Crab cakes, calamari all amazing
My husband and I have never been disappointed when we dine at Scott’s Seafood on the River. As cold weather is moving in, we were so happy with indoor dining again. Tables were spaced apart and shields between those with booths nearby. My husband’s kitchen sink bloody Mary was incredible and he was so impressed with crab stuffed olives and bacon and a colossal prawn garnish. We loved our entrées as well. Definitely going back soon.
5 stars!!!!! Service was excellent from start to finish. We enjoyed perfectly fried calamari and prawns for apps. The macadamia nut crusted halibut was cooked perfect. My wife loved the ahi. My son said his fish n chips were better then the ones he had a Phil’s in Moss landing. If your looking for a top notch meal with top notch service. Look no further. Scott’s is it!!!!’
The food was amazing, there was no wait time, and the servers were GREAT! Also, the cocktails were AWESOME!
This was our first time visiting Scott's Seafood restaurant and we had a wonderful time. The food was exquisite and our waiter was excellent. We will return again for a special occasion. Thank you so much.
Superb throughout our dining experience on Friday night!
Had business lunch here last week, and have eaten several other times for social events. Food is consistently great and service has always been good. Outdoor dining, even with fire pits, can be very chilly. Dress accordingly, if dining outside. Nice selection of cocktails, wine & beer. Good selection of seafood and non-seafood entrees.
We had a great experience. Nice area and excellent food 😋🍽👌🏻
Not my best experience at Scott’s. Nothing horrible just used to more ambiance and service. Thinned staff due to customers and space. I will go back, maybe not till the pandemic is over though.
First time dining during COVID. Felt completely safe and other than the masks, I forgot we were in a pandemic. Food was delicious and service was great.
Beautiful and wonderful experience. Thank you.
Had an awesome brunch. Food and service was great.
Great food and a great time! Scott’s has adjusted well to safely accommodate diners
As usual our meal was a very good-excellent dining experience. The only down side of earlier dinners has been the excessive noise level in the inside dining room. Normally, background noise from the bar overflows into the dining room. Because of Covid restrictions the bar was inoperative, as to seating, and there were many fewer diners.
Thus our small party could easily converse with one another.
Great place,nice atmosphere,not too noisy food 🥘 was great and drinks were great,great service and great 👍 weather.
This is a wonderful restaurant with a beautiful view. Service is always very good. Food is consistently good.
Staff and food was excellent! Appreciated their happy hour customers were in a separate area to have a quiet dinner.
My girlfriend who met me for dinner sent me a text message of a photo of salmon, shrimp, Asparagus, potatoes and shrimp with a spicy red sauce. I showed the picture to the waitress and she had the chef make of for us, it was AMAZING and should be on the menu!!!!!
