Always a welcoming and friendly atmosphere at Robert's Scratch Kitchen. The food is always good. Service is top-notch. I ordered an entree which was very good but I could not eat since it was blackened and I have a very sensitive stomach. They didn't even charge me for it which was really nice and not necessary.

I honestly cannot rave enough about our experience here! My Fiancé is gluten intolerant and for the first time in a long time, he was able to be completely relaxed looking at a menu! The owner and all of the staff tended to us like family! They kept walking around and making sure we had everything we needed. The ambiance of the place is business casual, but makes you feel super classy! You can dress up or dress down and you still feel fancy. THE FOOD. My father is a fisherman, but I'm still not a big raw fish fan. We decided to take a risk and ordered the seared Tuna... IT WAS HEAVENLY... PINK AND ALL... It was the cleanest tasting piece of Tuna I've ever had... and trust me, I've had fish that was wiggling minutes before it was served. I don't know how they did it! Because their menu changes seasonally, you bet your bottom dollar it has become a spot for us to come to every season! Why not every week? It's fine dining and is priced as such, HOWEVER, It is priced according to the quality of the food! Their portion sizes are great too so no complaint here! Bottom line? Treat yourself, you deserve it. This is the place to do it! It was time and money well spent, not to mention that you'll be dreaming about this food in the weeks to come!

We had the calamari for appetizer and it was amazing! It was in a ginger sauce with scallions on top. The lamb chop special was delicious! The service was great and we didn’t feel rushed to get out.

I've been to this restaurant during Covid and have sat outside and the food and the service was terrific, but to be able to sit inside again was a joy. We brought friends who have never been there before , and they loved it! Everything we ordered was GREAT.
