We visited on Cinco de Mayo but chose seafood over some specials they had for the day. There was live music even though it was the middle of the afternoon. Both the food and music were great! My only complaint was a miscommunication when we...More

Went mid afternoon and had a long wait. Sat at out the way booth with torn seats. Service was average for a busy restaurant. Food was pretty good. Especially the calamari! Hush puppies were odd though. Wishing the noise was due to a band but...More

Loved the shrimp cocktails! Really yummy food for a decent price. They say everything is bigger in Texas... it's true here! The portions were huge!

This restaurant has an awesome atmosphere, and the food has been great every time we have eaten there. We enjoy taking guest to enjoy the live guitar & signing. Our #1 choice if you want a fun beach restaurant.

Sushi was warm when it should be cold. Service was lackluster, noticed cooks and other staff smoking behind the restaurant upon arrival. Whataburger will be your best bet and save you more money. Not again!!

The number one question asked is “What does Scuttlebutt’s mean?” Well, we answer, The original context came from two nautical terms; the “butt” (picture a wooden keg) was a wooden cask that stored the fresh water when sailors were at sea. The “scuttle” was the area of the ship where the “butt” was stored. When it was break time, the sailors would gather at the “Scuttle Butt” and drink. This also became a social time, as they could all meet and talk. Now over the years the words joined together and became “scuttlebutt”. This word was used when people would gather together, typically at the office water fountain, and ask one another, “Hey, what’s the scuttlebutt with Jim in accounting?” Here is the official definition according to Meriam Webster; 1a : a cask on shipboard to contain freshwater for a day's use 2b: a drinking fountain on a ship or at a naval or marine installation 2: rumor, gossip. Now that you know what Scuttlebutt’s means, this is what we are about! Scuttlebutt’s is a full service restaurant and bar that truly is a place where everyone, from babies to baby-boomers, can get together and have a great time! Our menu is as equally diverse, with grilled peanut butter, banana and honey sandwiches, hand-cut rib eye steaks, oysters on the half shell and one of the best sushi bars around. Our premium craft beer wall and wine selection is top rated, and make sure to try our house made sangria or our signature Scuttlebutt’s punch. We are a scratch kitchen and our day starts in the wee-early mornings when the hard-working prep team arrives to bust out our house recipes. Another appeal to Scuttlebutt’s is that we offer Happy Hour every day (Yes, week-ends too!) from 3pm-7pm and we have live music every night (Yes, really, every night – unless the Dallas Cowboys are playing). We can easily accommodate larger groups as well as be the perfect spot for date night, which has turned into a marriage proposal on more than one occasion. Call ahead seating is available and we can help plan a perfect office party or celebration with custom menu options. Come visit us and become part of our Scuttle Family!
