We've been to Scott's about 6 times over the last 2 years or so while visiting my Mom in West Monroe. The first couple of times, it was okay. Nothing stellar, but the food was good, plentiful and the staff was polite and attentive. Fast forward to about 6 months ago and dang what a difference. I placed a to-go... More

We sure wish you had let us know about any problem with your special preparation order sooner than 6 months. I apologize on behalf of our employee who let you down, but on the whole we hire & train our employees to be friendly & helpful. We take special dietary orders all the time & have no problem making them... More

We both got the large catfish dinner and it was really good. I compared it to my mother's superb fried fish. We will be going back, probably too often!

That's a pretty good comparison if we can fry catfish as good as your Mom's. We appreciate your review & look forward to seeing you again soon! More

Some of my faves are the popcorn shrimp and their burgers are huge! Cheddar burger on a jalepeno roll!

They have great seafood! My favorite is the catfish Po-boy. One of the best in town. I don't know what is special about their batter but it makes the catfish very good. You can't go wrong here!

I drive past Scott's on Cypress in West Monroe quite often. Last Sunday I decided to stop by. I purchased a Catfish basket with greens beans as my side. The total was $8.74. For that price I received 3 small 1 inch wide strips of catfish, 3 hush puppies & some very wilted green beans. I can honestly say that... More

I am sorry you did not care for the portion size of our Get & Go Baskets. This is designed to be a small portion at our drive thru for $7.99. Our fish is cut in strips to allow us to remove the lateral line of the catfish filet to result in a cleaner tasting catfish. The new whole sautéed... More

Thank you for choosing us to try gumbo for the first time. We have recently been recognized as one of the top ten best gumbo in the state. Sorry about the dirty rice fail! It obviously wasn't prepared correctly because it is one of our more popular side items. So your review is necessary to keep our products consistent. So... 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. We offer many grilled healthy dinners that may have been a better choice for you. We are very proud of our locally grown and harvested catfish & seafood, as well as our freshly prepared side items.
