I stopped for lunch at Scott's Catfish and Seafood on my way to TX on Wednesday, April 12, 2017. I was looking for something local, and, hopefully, good. I got it! The food was just great! I had the catfish, with beans and cheese grits. It also came with hushpuppies. Oh, the food was just outstanding! The server checked on me several times, which I appreciated. She wasn't overbearing, just doing a great job.

There is this garlic sauce available on the table, so I thought I'd try it! Whoa!! It had this vinegar-y, garlicky taste... I was dipping everything in it - fish, fries, puppies! It was SO good that I had to ask the server if they sold bottles of it - and they do! I promptly bought one for $4! A bargain, I assure you!

I was sad only because, knowing when I'd be traveling back to FL, I asked if they were open on Mondays. They're not. :-( But I'll be back, I assure you! And if you're in the Ruston area, you should stop by, too. You won't regret it.

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.

Scotts Seafood Restsurant in Ruston, LA is where you will find one of the most savory and delicious GUMBO. One of the best I have had and if you can't decide what you want for lunch Monday through Friday they have an awesome Buffett line. Visit Scotts Seafood soon you don't want to miss down home cooking at its best.

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.
