We had a wonderful evening here at our daughter’s rehearsal dinner. The food was excellent and the servers were very friendly and personable, especially the bartender from sandy springs (I totally forgot his name)! He was excellent! I highly recommend.

While a little pricey, the service and the food are well worth it! And don't forget to visit the Lounge which is found through doors at the back of the restaurant!

The setting is very pretty. A large dining room in an old historic building redone very nicely. And there are several nooks and crannies and small rooms off to the side for a quiet, more intimate setting. The food was very good. There were four...More

Casual Fine Dining in a comfortable atmosphere is the best way to describe Gainesville's premier Downtown eatery. Great food prepared with attention to detail, an unparalleled wine list and the best wait staff North of Atlanta are some of the hallmarks of Scott's. We are located in downtown Gainesville in the historic Pilgrim Estes building. Our menu offers a wide range of choices from USDA Prime, hand cut steaks, the freshest seafood and local produce with seasonally inspired weekly specials. With a wine list of over 150 wines,many by the glass you will certainly be able to find a perfect match for your menu selection. Enjoy one of our five private dining rooms for two to celebrate that special occasion or one of our larger rooms for social and business events. We have dinner hours, live entertainment on the weekends and lunch hours during the week. Our new bar and lounge is now opened! We are Atlanta & North Georgia's best kept secret!
