If you're looking for white linens and stuffy people, this is not your place. But if you're looking for great food and friendly folks, this is you're place. I usually get the grilled chicken breast, house salad and the green beans. The best!!

Fondren Theatre Workshop was renting out the adjoining building to Scrooge's, so I got 6 weeks of chances to enjoy some great meals while we rehearsed. The bar is the big attraction; it gets a regular crowd and lots more on the weekends. The beer is standard macro with a few crafts tossed in. But the food is exceptional. My wife loved her steak. I had a chef salad that was huge. I also sampled veggie plates, burgers, a club sandwich, catfish, fried pickles, and country fried steak. Everything is delicious. And the waitstaff, especially Mel, are very cool. Friendly folks all around. No wonder Scrooge's gets such a big crowd, especially for Sunday brunch and after church. Come for the food. Stay for the ambiance.

Great for lunch with daily specials and regular menu items. I only come here for lunch, as it's close to my office. The blackened fish and sweet potatoes are the best, that's mostly what I choose.

I had been wanting to try Scrooge's and went on a Thursday night when I didn't feel like cooking but didn't want a 'chain' meal. Glad I finally decided to try. Excellent comfort food and service was quick. There weren't a lot of people in the restaurant part when we went in but was filling up by the time we left. My husband has found a new lunch spot.

We have a meeting here every Thursday. The meeting room is very comfortable. The food is always great and the servers always go the extra mile to help us with special requests. Phenomenal service.
