We have eaten here many times for lunch and dinner. I don't recall having eating any better whole fried catfish than I had the last time we ate lunch there. As you can guess we will be back

my family and I have eaten here for years. very good...especially at lent when we can't eat meat! I haven't been to the one they recently opened in Ruston but I'm sure it is just as good.

The service at this restaurant was extremely slow. The employees had a bad attitude. The food was hot and good once I got it.

We've been to Scott's about 6 times over the last 2 years or so while visiting my Mom in West Monroe. The first couple of times, it was okay. Nothing stellar, but the food was good, plentiful and the staff was polite and attentive. Fast forward to about 6 months ago and dang what a difference. I placed a to-go... More

We sure wish you had let us know about any problem with your special preparation order sooner than 6 months.

We both got the large catfish dinner and it was really good. I compared it to my mother's superb fried fish. We will be going back, probably too often!

They have great seafood! My favorite is the catfish Po-boy. One of the best in town. I don't know what is special about their batter but it makes the catfish very good. You can't go wrong here!
