Scott’s is a great seafood place with friendly and knowledgeable staff. We sat on the patio because weather was nice. There was the occasional plane that flew overhead, but the setting was still great. The bartenders are very skilled in mixology! I will return!

Our group of four decided to have lunch at Scotts before going to the arena for an event. Service was slow and the food was alright, but not for the price. Would not eat here again.
