Scott’s Downtown…

is the culmination of a life-long love affair with food, wine and hospitality.  Scott Dixon started in the restaurant business at age 13 as a busboy at a local Atlanta BBQ restaurant.  Little did he know that that was the first step in a long and prosperous career in the restaurant business.

Scott has worked in every position in a restaurant from bussing tables to washing dishes, from the kitchen to the dining room to behind the bar.  He has also held management positions in the kitchen and the dining room all the way to executive chef and general manager.  This depth and breadth of knowledge has helped him to create  Scott’s Downtown.

After many years as an Insurance Agent, Scott’s wife Kay DIxon joined the team in 2010 to head up the Catering and Special Events side of the business.  Kay now handles all of the Catering and manages The Loft special event facility.

We are Scott’s Restaurant, an upscale-casual, fine dining restaurant with a full bar and a fantastic selection of wines from around the world, many of which are available by the glass.

We are Your neighbors! We live in this community and have decided to open our business here as well. We will strive to do business and to purchase locally as well.

We are Your friends! Come see us, we will call you by name, and welcome you back time and time again!
