I would definitely put Scotts on your list for a special lunch or dinner. I had the Halibut and savored every bite. The Key Lime pie for dessert was a different take on what I am accustomed to from S.W. Florida.

Steakhouse feel near water and lively surrounds. Scallops or steak always a good choice. Sort of a generic steakhouse to take parents or grandparents coming to town. I had to wait for my reservation which was very annoying.

Love the fresh seafood and ambiance to this restaurant. I would definitely go back. But be forewarned, it is a bit pricey.

Have recently had brunch with some dear friends a couple of times and was really taken with the wide selection of foods. Each time the wait staff was on point with courteousness and service

We were the lucky winners of a gift basket and a coupon for brunch for two that Scott's donated to a charity event. We had a window table overlooking the estuary and enjoyed watching the boats come and go as we feasted. There is a huge selection of fish. seafood, meats, eggs, fruit, salads, and fabulous desserts. Everything we tried... More

We come here every trip to Oakland and have either lunch or dinner. The food is fantastic and the view is amazing. You look out at the Oakland estuary and across the bay to San Francisco. The waitress/waiter staff are great. It is a little pricey but worth it. We love Cheryl who has shoulder length salt and pepper hair.... More

Scott's Seafood has been serving our family for generations. We know them for their abundance of fresh Seafood that tastes like they went and caught it themselves. They have a wonderful menu, great service, and views that make this a one of a kind experience. Always an excellent choice.

For Oakland, this was a nice setting. Our server was attentive and there when needed. I had a mixed seafood entrée with rice but the seafood was totally covered with a heavy sauce, so couldn't taste the food. Average.

Thank OconeeMan
