We were surprised to find such a nice place in Scottsville. The atmosphere is very much pub-like, which is to say a bit loud during peak hours--not that that's bad. Two of us ordered fish & chips and the third a Chicken Caesar Salad. Fish and chips were fantastic--perfect breading. I recommend chips over fries. The fries seemed to be the frozen, pre-packaged kind. Not bad, but nothing special. The chicken Caesar was also very good, with just the right amount of dressing, and a decent portion of chicken. We were there for lunch. We will definitely be returning on our next trip to Scottsville.
