“Breakfast Is Served All Day Here”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

This is a family place, no alcohol is served. Everyone is so friendly and very fast with their service. Breakfast is served all day, everyday. They have a pretty good size menu from salads, burgers to dinners like liver and onions or meatloaf. The oven roasted Turkey sandwich looked awesome! Their breakfast menu is very large and you can order off that all day.They also have a limited delivery area and you can also order online from their website. Prices are very resonable. We had the breakfast buffet on Sunday (8 am to 1 pm) and it was $8.99 per person and that includes your drink. This is nothing fancy and a big spread like you would get at the casino or a large buffet restaraunt but it is good old fashioned down home cooking and very filling. They had pancakes, french toast, hashbrowns, scrambled eggs, sausage links, bacon, fried kielbasa, gravy and biscuits, hash, 4 different types of cereal, cinnamon rolls, 3 different types of juices, yogurt and a selection of fruits. The cereal is in the sealed bowls and I did have to ask for a glass of milk for it. They do not have milk out on the buffet. On Fridays they have a buffet of all you can eat shrimp and cod from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. They also have a rewards program and on your birthday you get a free meal valued up to $10.00. Just for signing up you get $5.00 off your next meal.

“Excellent!!!”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Thanks to smart phones and GPS a delightful meal helped round out our 4th of July holiday with family in South Dakota. We were within three hours of home when our 12 year old said "I'm hungry!" A quick check found us near the exit for Scott's Family Restaurant. It didn't take long to realize why this restaurant can boast "Voted best family restaurant in Cedar Rapids." The service was excellent and the food quality was wonderful including real peeled mashed potatoes. Most of our party of four adults and a 12 and 14 year old chose the Saturday dinner special of sirloin steak. Cooked to perfection for each order and the price was very modest. A salad bar was included. Even more special for us was NO ALCOHOL. We will look forward to another visit when we're in the area.

“A great local place to eat!”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

Always have had a good meal here. Food is fresh and fair priced. staff is friendly. I do wish they had a salad bar every day though, as Friday/Saturday nights are just not enough!

“Scotts”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

Excellent place to eat. A remodeled Happy Chef. Reminds me of a classic old school small town dinner. Food is always good and served quickly. The weekend breakfast buffet is also top notch.

“Family Friendly, Great Customer Service”
Reviewed October 16, 2013 via mobile

We have been at Scott's many times this past few months and it is always a pleasure. Mr. Scott make a point to check on his customer and make a point to be personal and approachable. Waitresses are good, work fast and helpful with the choice of meals. Their turkey dinner is very good and so their breakfast options. Portions are generous for decent price. Plus if you sign for their coupons, you get good deals in the mail. It is a nice mom pop restaurant, kid friendly. We will keep coming back.
