Under Construction Caution Bar

Our parking lot is now a US Army Corps of Engineering construction zone, so no self-parking this summer. We apologize! The good news is that the Westin has lowered the price of valet from $12 to $8.

Nice ambiance, though loud. Excellent service- thabk you Austin. Food- on point! I wouldn’t change a thing. Very delicious. Strawberry lemondrop martini. Coconut shrimp w/ spicy mango sauce. Crab cakes atop lightly breaded fried julienne sliced leeks. Spicy crab bisque. Halibut fish n chips. Creme brulee..

Vincent Gonzales

Our favorite seafood restaurant. It’s a beautiful place. Large. Delicious. We enjoyed the “Surf and Turf” Valentine’s special, steak and lobster. Sergio A. was our server; cordial and attentive, bilingual. Overlooking a marina on the west side with a few fancy yachts is pretty cool.

Angela Thompson Howard

Loved the poke nachos, so good and fresh. Our waitress was so fabulous.

Brian Carmichael

Scott’s is always awesome. The Cioppino is my go to but everything is great. It is always a treat and something to look forward to when we decide to go.


Scott’s Seafood on the River is an upscale restaurant with a variety of seafood dishes. It has great ambiance and nice views and excellent food and service. I took family from out of town and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.

Brenda Baker

Easy parking, clean restrooms, friendly service and great food!! Had drinks and apps at the bar and was very impressed. Our drinks were made perfectly. Fish and chips were crispy and yummy. Coconut shrimp was so flavorful and melted in our mouths! The service was super! We will definitely be back.

Scott’s Blog by Alan Irvine


“OK, so you’ve never tried a raw oyster. Well it’s high time you tasted one!* You are missing one of the most transporting experiences a person can have. If the oyster is cold, briny and moist, you can close your eyes and you would swear that you are on the beach, with the wind in your hair, salt air in your lungs and a smile on your face.”


“We’re still here aren’t we? Still rolling with the punches, still upright and plugging away every day. Still trying to serve the best food, the best beverages and the best service. Our incredible staff just shrug it off, keep doing what they do, doing the best they can to make ends meet, which sometimes is far from easy.”

July 2022

“There are a number of new cocktails like the Lycheetini, a mixture of Nolet’s Gin, Lychee and fresh lime juice. The Strawberry Limeade, a blend of Deep Eddy Lime Vodka, strawberries and a spritz of soda is a great refresher.”

February 2022

“It’s now 2022 and he is tired, a little bored and sad, so Stephanie decided that what he needed was a new look, a metamorphosis. From a chrysalis to a butterfly. Follow the story on Facebook or Instagram, to see the process, the creation of a new colorful personality, from conception to the execution of Stephanie’s vision.”

January 2022

“Establishing Grgich Hills winery in 1977, their wines have been a consistent beacon of quality ever since. It is a delicious, well-balanced wine with good fruit and acid, lots of flavor and goes rather well with our Macadamia Nut Crusted Atlantic Halibut.”

December 2021

“The story of Scott’s started in 1976 on the corner of Scott and Lombard in San Francisco, in Sacramento since 1991. We are proud to continue that legacy at Scott’s on the River, of good fresh food served well in a safe, comfortable space.”

October 2021

“We have never seen such huge price increases in our raw products, some of them almost 100% over what we were paying. Some ingredients are just not available anymore. It’s a daily scramble to source food and beverage.”

“Happy Hour is back in the tent and it’s easier, better. 4pm-8pm, Monday through Friday. Here are a couple of the new menu items. We even have Fried Calamari!”

“Oh, no part locally, have to call the factory in N. Carolina. Be here overnight Wednesday. Oh, they need to manufacture the part, be here overnight, Thursday. No part Thursday.”
