We had Seasoned Boiled Shrimp and Oysters on a half shell. Shrimp were amazing...great seasoning and great cocktail sauce. Oysters were great...fresh, plump...not as salty as I prefer but still really good quality. Hushpuppies were so good we had to get another order. Really cute atmosphere.

Were recommended to go here for the gumbo, unfortunately at least for this week it was only available Friday night. Had fried shrimp and oysters which were very good. Building is old and grungy but the food was good and fresh.

No wonder we had to wait for a table. This restaurant is great. When we did get a table, due to the fact that the place was full, we did have to be patient with the service. The waiter served all functions except for cook. All ended out great anyway. Definitely recommend.

Best oysters on the half shell anywhere. Everything including service is ok if you can just relax and wait for it. Like the plaque on the wall reads, "if our service isnt up to your standards, please lower your standards". This is not the place to go if you require being catered to, but if you want cold beer and... More

Scott's oyster bar is the real deal! I travel a lot and while dining here I had to keep reminding myself that I'm nowhere near the coast! The catfish and shrimp are right on point. If you like good fried seafood, this is the place. It seems to be a local favorite.

If you are looking for Red Lobster, keep going. If you are looking for cement floors, cold beer and great food, this is your place. Scott's is an Amarillo institution. I almost feel bad letting other know it is that Dive Perfect. The food is outstanding. The service is what you earn. Don't go and self serve out of the... More

We had the oysters half shell first and they were fresh and tasty. Then we had the fried oyster plate special and those oysters were also excellent. Great food for a good price.

My husband and I went with friends. We sat on the patio ate oysters and drank some beer. We had a blast. It has a different feel that most of the restaurants in Amarillo. Really great oysters!

Scott's is owned by some bayou city (Houston) folks that really know their stuff. Simple seafood menu with surprisingly great shrimp and oysters. Scotts breading for shrimp and oysters is light and flavorful

Looks like a shack and is a shack, but good food. Normally very crowded, so you wait a short time for a table. Nice covered outside seating area also. Like its name oysters are very popular, however I personally go for the fried shrimp, fries, hush puppies and cold slaw. The staff was friendly and service good. Parking is free... More
