    Overall it was quite lovely. We had a couple things which were over cooked or over spiced but everything else for our party of 6 was delicious and the staff were wonderfully accommodating.

    Had some family and friends in town. Asked a friend for a good brunch place and she recommended Scout. It was well worth it. The food was great, the staff was friendly and the service was awesome.

    My wife and I both enjoyed the yellowtail snapper complemented by the flourless chocolate cake topped with strawberries and blueberries. The service is spot on and the entries emerged super quick. We were dining al fresco and there's not a better deck to eat on in the mild months than Scout's...the trees with their nightlife, looking toward Oakhurst Park, just an easy quiet place to sip wine and enjoy a pleasant summer evening!

    I am surprized that I was able to get a reservation Sunday afternoon, made Sunday morning. The service was great, Jebbah was pleasant, professional and attentive. The food was good as always. I was finally able to have the salmon burger. The last few times I was there, they were sold out. It was amazing, everything!

    It was our first visit to Scout, and it is worthy of a return visit. Although the kitchen was a bit backed up, the staff consistently checked on us. When the food arrived, everything was delicious. We did not leave disappointed.

    Everything was perfect except really loud recorded music started in the park across the street at 7:00 and we could barely hear ourselves talk throughout dinner. Reducing the volume a bit could have made the Scout deck experience better and it still could have been very loud in the park!

    We came for Saturday brunch. Suzette took good care of us. We shared the French Toast and Smoked Salmon brunch entrées. Both were very good. We especially like that the manager Ian came by to see how we were doing. We appreciate the care and concern Scout has for it's guests. When we are in the area this is our go to spot for brunch.

    This review is for the owners because the server and manager did their job well. Apparently there was turnover so service was very delayed. It took 30 minutes to get bread. Food was not great. Salmon burger was too salty and brussel sprouts were way undercooked. Our server was great at doing the most she could with the support she had so big points for her. The manager also jumped in to help. They were completely underresourced. Kitchen staff did not do a good job. Ownership must step up. I hope things get better but I'm staying away from now.

    My husband and I took our young daughter for the first time at Scout and was such a terrific experience. We sat outside and from the time we were seated to the time we left we were greeted with an amazing staff. The drinks, apps and entrees were all so yummy and fresh. This will definitely be our go to restaurant when we’re in the area.

    My guest and I dined at Scout for lunch and were seated promptly. However, despite making a reservation, my name was not listed. The waiter was friendly but spent too much time been sociable when I would have appreciated an emphasis on food and service. I ordered the shrimp and grits entree and my guest ordered the cheeseburger entree. My food was okay but I’ve had better. Although my guest said her cheeseburger was good she only ate 1/4 of it. There was no designated parking and being unfamiliar with the area, I took a chance by parking in a lot across the street. The GPS led me to the address but the sign for the restaurant was not clearly obvious. All in all, I probably won’t return because it’s an hour from my house.

    We have always loved Scout, and have frequented this establishment. Our experience this time was quite different than in the past. The food was sub-par, and the service was ridiculously slow. We were seated for a minimum of 10 minutes before anyone came to our table. We hope it gets better again. It’s a great patio!
