In 1976, the first Scott's Seafood Grill and Bar opened at the corner of Scott and Lombard in San Francisco, hence the name. The tiny 40 seat restaurant was an immediate success, becoming one of the top ten restaurants in the United States in volume per seat in just a few months. The next six years saw the opening of Scott's in Embarcadero Center in downtown San Francisco, Palo Alto, Jack London Square in Oakland, San Jose and later Walnut Creek and Costa Mesa. Scott's in Sacramento came into existence in 1991 when Alan Irvine, John Cook and their families combined their experience and resources, realizing their dreams of opening a restaurant and bought the name Scott's for the Sacramento Area. Scott's Seafood Grill and Bar has become Sacramento's Favorite Seafood Restaurant (Sacramento Magazine Reader's Poll) and continues its growth with Scott's Seafood On The River, opened in early 2008.
