This was years ago and now the food is still pleasant but portions are smaller and less... read more

If you like greasy fried seafood and canned/bagged food this is the place for you. They need to hire someone who can cook.

We wish you had brought this to the attention of our friendly staff so we could have corrected any dissatisfaction of our product.

I love this little place! The staff is friendly and the food is awesome! They have good chicken for the non seafood eaters. It has a nice homey feel about it. I recommend going.

The restaurant is dated in decor and the food is greasy, in fact that is all I tasted. Maybe I went on an off day for them but for me that will be the only time I go. Now the staff was very friendly, I have to give it to them for that.

The free hush puppies are hot and spicy. The catfish was cook perfectly. The shrimp were good too. The portions are good. The price is above average compared to other fast food. It was about $10 or $14 a person depending on what you order.

Found Scott's while visiting Monroe. Not what we expected, but it was okay. Our food was ready very quickly. There isn't table service, you place your order at the register and it is brought to you. Nothing fancy, probably good for families. The prices are reasonable, place seems clean. Staff friendly.

This place has some of the most consistently best fried catfish in West Monroe. Hush puppies are great too. Jush wish the building was big enough for a buffet like in Ruston When I want fried catfish Scotts is the place and I can walk from my office.
