About Scott’s Seafood on the River

The freshest seafood, flown in or delivered daily from around the world, served by a well trained and knowledgeable staff in a comfortable atmosphere.

Scott’s Seafood on the River

In 1976, on the corner of Scott and Lombard, three men put their heads together and came up with the concept that we now know as Scott’s Seafood Grill and Bar. Since then, we have grown and changed from our original 40 seat restaurant to our award-winning Scott’s Seafood on the River featuring sustainably harvested seafood, simply prepared and served in a comfortable atmosphere by a friendly, attractive, well-trained staff.

Alan and Sigrid Irvine opened Scott’s on the River in January 2008, later partnering with the Westin Sacramento and are open every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner, brunch on the weekend. As our name suggests, being beside the flowing waters of the Sacramento River draws out our stress and helps us relax. Add in your favorite glass of wine and a wonderful meal and you are refreshed and ready to rock.

Our fire pits and heated patio just add to the atmosphere. This is the perfect setting for a special moment or two with partners, friends and family.

Celebrations are our passion, whether in our seasonal riverbank tent (think weddings, business retreats), in our ballroom (think meetings, family celebrations) or in our more intimate venues. Our catering staff will help you design a successful event from start to finish.

So, welcome to Scott’s Seafood on the River! Come in, sit down and prepare to have a good time!

“We have been handed a new and interesting challenge by our lawmakers this year, that of plastic straws. The law now states that we cannot offer plastic straws to our guests but can only serve them on request.”

you? Is farmed fish OK to eat or should you eat only wild?”
