Of course the sourdough bread and butter are great to snack on, the calamari was chewy, but the fresh halibut was way beyond expectation. House Pinot Grigio was perfect.

We visit Scott's at Jack London Square whenever we are in the area. Probably 10-12 times in the past 10 years. I know it is getting a bit frayed around the edges but you cannot beat the food, service and beautiful view of the water. They know how to cook seafood.

I had the calamari steak, and it was amazing. Rich, creamy, covered in toasted almonds. New England clam chowder was too bland, though. It's worth a visit if you're looking for some good fresh seafood.

Seafood done right! Although it doesn't sit on the water like their Oakland establishment, the Walnut Creek location has a wonderful ambiance! They also have a beautiful Reception venue and several smaller banquet rooms.

Outdoor seating is nice. My pear/walnut salad was $17.00. It was a small serving. Pretty disappointing. The lady's restroom was a mess. The bar area was loud, but staff was attentive. There was music provided by a piano, but the person's 'speaker' wasn't of good quality which made the sound of her playing rather harsh sounding, but we enjoyed her... More

In Jack London Square are numerous restaurants, and we walked the whole square, peering at all the menus before deciding on Scott's Seafood Restaurant. You know the saying, "When in Rome, do as the Romans do?" Well Scott's Seafood Restaurant is an awesome place to order seafood. Beef? Not so much. But I digress. Let me start at the beginning....

I went to the first Scott's in SF on Lombard St in the 70's. It was great then, but things haven't changed much. Food is good and service, professional, and the location in Jack London Square is gorgeous. But at these prices, there's plenty of better choices.

My wife and I went to Scott's Seafood for the first time last Friday night. It is in our neighborhood and is right on the Oakland Estuary. We sat outside which was lovely, but our meal and conversation was overshadowed by the table of six loud and tipsy people next to us. In retrospect, we should have asked to move... More

We went into an almost empty restaurant and the service was very slow. We were almost ready to leave when someone walked up and said they would get our server, we figured it may be time for change of shift and shrugged it off. We had a bit of sticker shock when we got the menus but we were in... More

Jack London Square seafood house with all the traditional dishes. I am a clam chowder crazed lunatic. Theirs was just average which disappointed me, especially for where we were. Fish of the day was just ok and too much butter. All in all, nice place to go aesthetically, but food slightly above average, especially at those prices.
