Service was excellent!!! Our server could not have been more pleasant or efficient. The food was uneven. There were six of us. Three really enjoyed their meals. One felt their meal was good but not excellent. Two were disappointed. We were celebrating a birthday and...LOVED the surprise dessert, flower and photo. The ambiance is lovely.More

Was here for Sunday Brunch. The service and live music was great, but the food was just mediocre. The 1/4 inch crab cake Benedict left me unsatisfied—not enough crab for the price. Potato fingerlings were cold, soggy and not well seasoned. You can get more...bang for your buck somewhere else.More

We enjoyed sitting outside and enjoying the view. The service was excellent. Although expensive, the food was excellent - Cioppino and Halibut.

We were celebrating out anniversary so I made reservations aty Scott's. A day before the reservation they texted us to confirm and I responded with a YES. When we arrived, the host immediately showed is to a window table with a view of the channel...and boats passing by. Our waitress, Angela, was super nice and very attentive, but not overbearingly so. I had surf & turf and my sweetie had a crab salad followed by fresh lobster. The food was amazing and they surprised us with a nice dessert and a red rose to celebrate our anniversary. We will be back.More

My husband ordered blackened catfish, and it was fine. I ordered pecan or cashew shrimp - not sure which nut was supposed to come with the shrimp, but the dish did not include any nuts. At first, I thought the nuts were crushed and mixed...into the sauce, but the server said that the nuts were supposed to be whole. She also did not see any nuts on my plate. The server took away that untouched dish, and I then requested the macadamia crusted halibut - again no sign or taste of any macadamia nuts. I kept my mouth shut this time and took a few bites before giving up. You may say that this has nothing to do with the server, but we also ordered a salad. I mentioned to the server that I would share the salad with my husband. Upon bringing the salad, the server proudly announced that she had put it on two plates for us. Well, instead of $20, the salad became $24 due to the extra plate. Nowhere on the menu was there a mention of an extra charge for the extra plate. If it had been mentioned, I would have asked for the salad to remain on one single plate. Upon presenting us with the bill, the server also "generously" mentioned that she did not charge me for the shrimp dish that I did not touch because it had no nuts. Overpriced. Poor service. Waste of time.More

Lovely atmosphere, idyllic setting, excellent service....but mediocre food! Noting the upscale prices, we were expecting stellar-tasting food. I like the way I prepare fish at home more than what we experienced at Scott's. The plating was beautiful but two of the entrees ordered were not...completely eaten. Having dined all over the world, we realized that the fish and chips were the worst we have ever been served. We wanted to like this place but were saddened to experience an expensive but non-memorable meal. We will not return and recommend that you find another location to savor at Jack London Square.More

Sunday evening dinner got off to to a great start. Wait staff was very attentive. Pleasant atmosphere and cuisine that was satisfactory if not exciting. The reason for the two stars is that our waitperson disappeared for 30 minutes at the end of the meal....Dropped off dessert menus and then literally dropped out of sight. We finally gave up and someone from our party hunted her down and paid the bill. Very disappointed to be treated so shabbily by such a pricey establishment.More

I stopped by Jack London Square for lunch. I was shocked that most restaurants were closed permanently or for that day. A sad place, but I went into Scott's for the first time. Decorated for the holidays and many couples or groups were enjoying the...view of the marina. I was immediately seated at a window table and served by efficient and friendly waitstaff. I had never been to a Scott's before: the menu had so many seafood dishes I found it hard to choose. I had an excellent saute and a cup of Boston-style clam chowder: an excellent lunch!More

Seafood cioppino was excellent. you definitely want to order it with the crab already removed from the crab shells. This made it much easier to eat, and it allowed to crab meat to offer a little bit of flavor to the broth. House salad was...ridiculous. It should have been complimentary. It is essentially a garnish. a few little pieces of lettuce, two slices of cucumber, and a few slices of tomato. It looked like something you'd see on the side with a hamburger order. Service met expectations, but the staff seemed a bit frantic and disorganized. I like to see and enthused, fast paced operation. But it looked as though everyone was nervously rushing between crises. This would have been a solid four star review if the $17 garnish they called a house salad was "Scott" free.More

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful lunch at a table by a window. At the end of the meal we mentioned that we were celebrating our anniversary. We were then surprised with a special lighted dessert and a long-stemmed red rose in a box...tied with a red ribbon. The staff took our photo and presented it to us in a cardboard frame. We really appreciated what they did to make the day feel special for us. the whole experience of dining at Scott's Seafood was very pleasant.More

June 26, 2021 - SO DISAPPOINTED!!! I have always enjoyed Scott's over the years. It is a no-fail go to when you want white-linen service and great food. Ordered appetizers (Calamari & Spicy Shrimp) and cocktails to start. Then order 2 Blackened Catfish and 1...Salmon entrees. The Calamari was lightly fried, sitting a plate of something wet. Not an aioli (they didn't have any) or lemon juice making the light crunch to "no crunch" and quite chewy. The shrimp was literally sitting in a puddle of read grease! We sent the Calamari back and asked for another plate of shrimp without the grease, please. When the Blackened Catfish arrived. You could smell the burntness as the plates were being placed on the table. There was no trace of Blacken seasonings but simply the char smell of burnt food. I attempted to take a bite by passing what I was smelling but was not successful. So, I nibbled at the plain mashed potato's. I soon picked up the perfectly cut carrots and long string beans only to find out that they were blanched and not cooked! WOW1!! For the price point at this restaurant, I expected at lease a drink that would arrive at the table as I ordered but not even that occurred. I asked for a Margarita with little ice. I received a glass filled with ice 2 times (had to scoop out the over served ice myself and leave on the bread plate both times) rimmed with "table salt!" Are you kidding me. My guest I could not get over how horrible the food was from start to finish. I reminded my guest that businesses were simple not able to bring back quality employees due to COVID and this restaurant must be going through the same and used a rookie sou chef or dishwasher as chef this day. I know as a teacher how hard it has been these past 18 months with school closed so I empathized with the restaurant. The meal total was $207 with my tip cost$270. However, I will NEVER EAT AT SCOTT'S AGAIN!More
