Free is good! – Not the best to take a cheap date, but I like. If you're at the bar & get along with the head guy you might get free drinks after, or hell, even free food if they make a mistake in the kitchen!
Rat Runs Across Table and Bench – Took my husband for his 60th birthday party, along with his family visiting from Detroit and my 92 year old dad to Scott's for dinner. Ordered appetizers and drinks and put in our dinner order. While having our appetizers, heard a waitress yell out and looked at her and saw her look of horror. Asked her what was the matter, she did not answer. She talked to another waitress who ran to the kitchen and quite a few staff went in the kitchen to talk. Then a man came out from in back of the restaurant with a can and we saw a HUGE rat run over one of the booth seats onto the table and disappeared. Then they started taking the booth seats apart, right while we were sitting there, to look for the rat!
While I insisted that our dinner be comped, and it was, the whole experience of seeing a huge rat run across the booth right next to us made us all feel ill. My husband and I have been enjoying Scott's for years and in fact my husband was there on the original opening day. We will never go back now as the vision of the rat, the staff taking apart the booths, and the whole distasteful event on my husband's 60th birthday has left a horrible impression in our minds and our stomach. Is the food good? Yes, but now I wonder, if there is one rat running through the restaurant, how many more are there and do they get into the food at all? I know they have a rodent prevention program, but when you see a HUGE rat run across the table, you can only think the program is not working. We are very sad but will not ever go back to Scott's again, nor will I be taking my staff there for birthday lunches any more. And, how sad that on such a special occassion as my husband's 60th birthday, which I trusted to Scott's to make special, our memory is of a huge rat next to our table.
Good most of the time... – We've been going to Scott's for years and 90% of the time the food and service are good, but we usually only go during happy hour and sit in the bar or outside on the patio.
Women, beware--don't ever be sad at this bar! – NO stars. I was treated very inappropriately by one of the staff during a time I was emotionally compromised and when i attempted to make it known to management at Scotts and also their corporate office what had been done to me, I was completely ignored, even despite the fact this action resulted in several years of ongoing confusion for me and further mistreatment directed at me by other staff at this restaurant. I work for a company that deals with insurance companies trying to get medical claims paid--I have dealt in my time with many indifferent, rude or uncaring people, but nothing has compared to the complete and total lack of concern for my well being demonstrated by both this restaurant and their corporate office, the utter disregard for the safety and comfort of a loyal paying guest. About Scotts I will say nice place to visit, but this is not a place that cares beyond how much money is in your pocket how you are made to feel by their staff, or what inappropriate unprofessional treatment might be directed at you.
Forget it – I've been going to Scott's for years. The food has always been mediocre, but we keep going because it's predictable, and close to home.
But today was the last straw. Both entrees were horrid: greasy, salty. We were overcharged, and the waitress blamed it on the computer. I could go on, but it's not worth the time to write it. Go somewhere else. They've given up trying.
Nice date restaurant – This is a gem of a place that from the outside doesn't look like much but, inside is humming.
We went for a dinner on a week night and sat in the bar. The menu was great (highly recommend the shrimp app) and the waitress was so sweet and chatted with us like we were her long time friend.
It is not a place to take the kids if you have them but great for date night with the man!
Great Edmonds Bar – Scott's is a great place to go meet friends and have great food. The bar gets really packed on the weekends, so be prepared to wait and then jump when a table becomes free. I like their Fish and Chips, the Artichoke dip, and their drinks are fantastic. My favorite is the Scratch Margarita. When I take a friend there for the first time, they often giggle and snicker about the pinkish gingham wallpaper, but by the end of the night they are a Scott's fan. Reservations in the main dining room for dinner is a good idea. Especially on the weekends.
To R.U.I. or not? – The atmosphere is great, the food is better. I recommend everything on the menue but the meatloaf san. and the prime rib dip. I been going to the restaurant for about ten years now. Have many friends that work for rui. My only complaint is that I caught the bartender giving one of the servers an alcoholic drink while on her shift. She was my server. She did not get drunk, just a little silly.From going to the rest. so much over the last few years I had picked up that he had been fired from the company before. They have a secret employee in from corporate now watching everything that happens in the rest. Hopefully that will help. Overall, Scotts Bar & Grill is by far the best restaurant in the N. end of town. I also recommend Cutters for a much hipper night.
A Better American-style Diner – It's an upgraded diner...serving 21st century-style diner food....so for what it is, in my opinion, I think it's darn good. I've only had good service when I've dined there. Their cocktail menu has ALOT of interesting choices. A favorite: Buffalo Chicken Salad is worth the trip....and very good focaccia.
