This is the best catfish place in Ruston. Nice basic menu from which you order when you enter. We had grilled catfish and fried shrimp, and both were excellent. Scott's does a lot of take-out business, so the restaurant is quiet, compared to other popular...More

Julie, thank you for stating what we hope others discover: Great catfish in a nice location, even if it is a little farther out. Hwy 33, just 1.5 miles from the Interstate, but worth the drive. Hope to see you again soon!

I have only been to Scotts on Sunday afternoons. They are a good place to do a quick in and out after church on Sunday. Not sure about other times of the week. On Sunday, they offer a buffet as part of their meal options...More

Food was average and the restaurant has nice pictures and calming music, but service was slow and overall a little too expensive for what you get.

Had lunch while here on an interview. Not a fan of catfish but they helped change my mind and tastebuds.

I had a birthday lunch there with my husband and daughter. The staff was very friendly. The service was great and fairly quick. The price was decent. But, most of all the food was delicious. I plan to eat there again when I'm in town.

All of the food was excellent. Their catfish was great. Key Lime pie was also good. Two of my favorites that I do not like to cook. Staff was very efficient, friendly. Restaurant was clean and very cool (almost cold).

Thank you for your review. We should have our new salad bar ready within a few days. A fresh, cool garden salad with your USA catfish, Gulf shrimp, or our yummy chicken sounds like a well balanced meal. It is also a great addition to...More
