I had reservations for my wedding anniversary at Scott's but didn't ago because of an emergency. So when my husband suggested we try it out for lunch, I was excited. I'm old and don't get out much so any new restaurant is a treat for me. This location is new for the restaurant and across the street from our local library so I knew where we were going. We entered and found an empty bar. I called out but got no reply. We went outside and wondered what to do. I told my husband to wait outside and I would investigate. After all, there was a menu posted near the door and my husband had gotten a 25% off coupon on email. Feeling like an intruder, I ventured past the empty bar area down a hallway and saw some movement at the far end....Kept going and finally saw a waiter-type guy who went to get some menus. I told him about the empty bar and he said, "O, I only open the bar at night." Bottom line: There were only a few people eating and the acoustics were such that the noise level with only a couple occupied tables was bad. We both felt foolish for having come in the wrong entrance and very unwelcome when we arrived in the dining room. This restaurant is considered upscale in the small burg of Gainesville. I think an upscale restaurant should make your dining experience effortless. Since this one didn't, I won't be visiting again. We proceeded from Scott's to the Atlanta Seafood restaurant where we always feel welcome and we know the food is good.
