Very mediocre food presented poorly for an upscale price. Definitely do not get there lobster cheese stuffed mushrooms - very negligible amount of lobster.

Lovely experience on Valentine's Day! We ordered the special menu for the day and found the prices super reasonable and more affordable compared to ordering the items individually. Thank you for a great night!

My boyfriend and I came here for Valentine’s Day. It was really nice! They had a cute little candle lit at the table, it was really quite cute. This was my first time ever to being to Baton Rouge and I really enjoyed it! The seafood linguini was amazing!

The Prix Fixe $30 Prime Rib Dinner was the best deal I've had in a while.
Soup (Spinach-Lentil) or Salad, Prime Rib with a side and Dessert (Red Velvet Cake, Chocolate Fudge Cheesecake or White Raspberry Cheesecake).

We have been going to Baton Rouge in Scarborough for the past few years to celebrate new year's eve dinner. We made a reso for a table of 10, with 3 kids. The service was initially acceptable, although they seated us near the front door which blew in a cold draft every few minutes the door was opened. The waitress was fine, she took our drink and main entrees order within 10 minutes. Our drinks arrived in waves, very disorganized. The worst part was we all received our meals except for one meal. We didn't receive that meal until 23 minutes after everyone else had their food. It was cold as we had to wait. The manager was very friendly and offered to comp the one meal but our dinner was ruined. The dessert was equally a mess. We ordered dessert and the kids ice cream and coffee took over 20 minutes. I didnt realize scooping ice cream into a small bowl after already providing shabby service would be such an issue.
When we got the Bills they were incorrect and no further discounts were applied to make up for all the poor service. They include gratuity in the bill (not sure they deserve it) and when one person tipped on top in error they refused to let us re do the bill...terrible.
Needless to say, the service was the reason we originally went there and the same reason we will never return.

We went for dinner for New Years Eve . I ordered the Top sirloin and my husband ordered the chipotle chicken. The top sirloin was perfectly cooked, I ordered medium rare, but the cut of meat was chewy. The chicken was absolutely amazing. My husband ordered garlic mashed potatoes, but he was only given regular mashed potatoes. I ordered a cesaer salad, but they didnt have romaine, so I had just a house salad. It was absolutely delicious.

The Old Scott House is an interesting, historic building. The restaurant is too brightly lit, however, and getting a bit shabby. Holes in the ceiling, more than a coat of paint needed.
Food good, basic, not blow me off my chair.
A bit pricey for this experience.

Food was great but the service was a bit lacking. Our empty glasses were never taken away and our table became cluttered. By the end of the night we had 12 glasses for 4 people. We would ask for something and it wouldn't come and would have to remind the server.

Nobody came to our table for 15 minutes after we were seated. There was confusion on who was looking after us.

Very noisy. Had trouble with conversation as a baby was screaming and the mother didn’t go anywhere to alleviate the situation.

Okay experience. Not sure if we would go back.

The food was excellent. It was very noisy at first due to the number of customers but was quieter once most left. Its a nice place for a nice lunch or dinner.

Food was good and came quickly. Asked waiter for some horseradish to go with beef. By time he came back my meat was a bit cold. Restaurant didnt seem that busy but maybe he got held up. Very quiet table so was easy to talk and cstch up with my friend. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends for a nice dinner out

Food was good. Tuna bowl - I don’t believe it was fresh tuna seem like it was defrosted. Friend had lobster pasta full of lobster but need something with it.
Steaks of other friends was excellent.
Recommend but have steak or ribs - which makes sense.

Took my dad there for his 90th birthday and was a bit disappointed. Expected them to sing happy birthday or at least wish the birthday person a happy birthday but they didn’t even though they sang to a table near us not long before they brought the cake we brought there out. Also the prime rib was very fatty and the ribs were a bit burnt. We’ve had better at other locations.

This particular location of Baton Rouge for some reason has the best ribs. Service is perfect. Waitress and manager very attentive. Absolute delight to dine with my family there.

Went with my two teenage daughters. Felt like we were neglected all evening.
When we finished our calamari app, the empty plate sat on the table for 20min even after people had served us our mains, and 3 separate visits to our table by 3 separate servers. I had to ask servervt to rwmove it. My prime rib steak came RARE insteadof medium rare, and it was COLD, along with the mash and vegetables. I sent it back, and it came back (same piece ) 10min later a little more cooked, and the veggies obviously nuked.

They forgot to bring us the waters we'd ordered with our other drinks. We had to remind them. They never brought us the Sprite refill for my daughter .
They knew well that they had not provided good service, yet didn't offer to compensate us in any way whatsoever for it.

I was never rude, or loud about anything.
This is one customer who won't be coming back. At least not to that location.

Maybe. I've gone to a number of Baton Rouge restaurants. It's one of my favorites and I was a bit disappointed on this visit. We had to wait a long time for our meal and the restaurant was not busy at all. The meal was just okay, not what you would expect for the price paid.

It was a birthday celebration. The restaurant is noisy but a good noisy! Not music noisy but conversation noisy. You can talk without worrying about disturbing others. We had a very good time. The food was excellent and our server was friendly and attentive.

Food and service was very good. But a huge party of 8-10 kept moving tables and standing in front of ours and the tables next to us. Since they were standing on top of us I was going to ask them to join us at one point. The management did nothing to help the dinners around and catered to the annoying group.
