We found Scott’s by chance one evening and we weren’t disappointed. Each time we’ve gone there we’ve enjoyed the food. On this visit my husband and I both had the calamari steak - it was very good. And the ambiance is nice - right along...More

Sunday afternoon my family and I went to Scott's. We were celebrating my sister's 59th birthday. The View was amazing. The food was awesome. We had a great time and they treated the birthday girl like a queen.

Pricey for the quality, but the portions are generous. I enjoyed the seafood salad while the rest of my party dined on a range of menu items, including the fish and chip, seafood pasta, pork and other fish dishes. Service was a standout, from the...More

Family dinner at Scott’s Seafood for a party of 12. Service was excellent as well. Oysters on a half shell was fresh but a little on the small size. The clam chowder was not a disappointment. Have the bowl rather than the cup!

Planned a Christmas Eve dinner for 12. Made reservations a week before. Seated in the special events room. Great service and plenty of staff. I just had a bowl of clam chowder and oysters on a half shell!!

I assume that because of the other places mentioned here that this is the Scott’s in Oakland. Nice, but the Scott’s on Fusherman’s warf is more romantic. These are the kinds of restaurants where the view is better than the food. 35 years ago these...More
