Scott's Downtown is a great place with great service. We went to the mother's day brunch and a nice time was had by all. Looking forward to the new street work completion.

Food was well-prepared. We had sea bass and shrimp/grits which are long running menu favorites. Very good as was the crab dip. The private dining booth for two is a cute feature, especially for private conversation. Service was friendly and efficient.
