Smoke Shack Bbq

Reviews:
Vinegar based barbecue instead of the tomato based I am used to, but it was excellent. The ribs were smoky and tender. Pulled pork was delicious, and all side dishes were fantastic. Cheaper than they should have been too! Two tables totaling five chairs inside.

Harpers Catfish

3085 Old Gallatin Rd
Scottsville, 42164
Reviews:
My grandparents took me here this past year and the fried catfish is superb. It's perfectly breaded and the fish is fresh. Definitely try to the coleslaw. Unless you have a big appetite, the child size plate will fill you. This is a genuine, hole in the wall place worth going to.
This is a small-town family-owned restaurant that serves cheap small trim cuts of farm raised catfish, bottom of the barrel cheap frozen crinkle cut french fries and frozen onion rings . Mine arrived cold and soggy. The onion rings replacement has to be worst ever. Huge over cooked batter covered things with little skinny onions, but there were hot. You get cheap assembly line built onion rings with very little onion for your buck. They are not fit to eat. The cold slaw might have been freshly made. It was cold and heavily sugared. I had to squeeze lemon juice on it to make it eatable. Prices have gone up since 2012, making this a $$ eating experience. No, I would not take anyone I cared about to Harpers! Still does not accept any kind of card! Service leaves much to be desired.
We lived in Glasgow and it was a bit of a drive to get to Harpers. The first time I walked in I though oh my god, what is this place? not in a good way. The restaurant itself could use some updating but I think it just adds to the experience after a few times of going there. The food: Best catfish I have ever had in my life. Period done, end of story. The first time I ended up getting french fries and a salad (the salad bar is decent if you can get over using the wooden bowls that looked like they got a deal on at a garage sale) but every time Ive been back, I skip the fries and get a salad and all you can eat fish. I wish I could bring a doggie bag of it home! The other great thing about this place is if you order a diet pop and they bring you a can of RC cola. A can! Imagine that. Not watered down fountain drink. All in all, its a friendly, small town fish joint that has great fish and great service.

Earl G Dumplin’s

1707 Old Gallatin Rd
Scottsville, 42164
Reviews:
Earl G. Dumplin's. First of all, the name alone is awesome. This place wins the prize for one of the strangest restaurant names ever. I love it! One of the previous reviews noted "portions are generous." This is quite an understatement. Perhaps it would be better to say that portions are ridiculously huge. I ordered the catfish platter which included enough delicious fried catfish to feed no fewer than three adults. In case that wasn't enough, the lunch also included three sides--which were, not surprisingly, exceedingly generous. Our waitress was a very nice lady who loved chatting with everyone at my table. All of the other employees seemed friendly and helpful. The interior is nothing special. In fact, I think it might be a converted fast food restaurant. Some of the chairs are falling apart, and cleanliness was teetering on the edge of being an issue. If you're passing through Scottsville, I'd recommend stopping here instead of choosing any of Scottsville's fast food joints. Support the local guys!
I had the best British style breaded cod...in a meat and three type place in rural kentucky. I mean it was like a funnel cake with fish inside served with malt vinegar. I was seriously impressed, Earl G Dumplins. I've also now twice ordered the pulled pork on cornbread and I would go back again and again for that. Both are specials, and not available every day, unfortunately. There aren't a lot of places to eat in Scottsville (that arent fast food), and if there's a must-try restaurant there, this is probably it. We send everyone here. Portions are gigantic, plus they give you yeast rolls and cornbread with it..and the prices are pretty cheap. The service is always as good as it can be, those ladies work hard - just sometimes the place is packed, so it's gonna be slow. Only reason to knock off a star, and this kind not out of the ordinary for this manner of restaurant, but it doesn't look super clean (tables are fine, but like the floor is usually sticky), and there is a pretty bad smell when you come in the front door, like every time I've gone. Not enough to dissuades me from eating there, but enough to be notable.
I would actually like to give Dumplin's 2.5 stars...it's OK... Dumplin's is fine - for what & where it is. It's a multi-purpose restaurant for a restaurant lacking town. Now, that being said - I've lived in more isolated locations that had amazing, home-cooked style food. I've been here a few times. The food & service is fine. It's okay. Lot's of fried stuff. The salad bar really needs to have a little more green than iceburg lettuce. It's 2011 - Mixed greens for everyone! {or at least Romaine} I had a Reuben recently that was tasty - but waaaaay too much sauce. Order it with sauce on the side. And if you are being somewhat health conscious - lighter on the butter on the grilled rye. I ordered sweet potato tots. Cute! But it wasn't mentioned that they would be served dusted with powdered sugar. So if you like less sweet sweet potatoes - tell them to hold the powdered sugar. My dining companion had a daily special chicken wrap. Again - waaaay too much sauce. Chicken was grilled and tasty. The tortilla/wrap needs to be heated - it was obviously straight from the package. Gigantic onion rings were good. Perfectly crispy on the outside. Hot & tender onion-y goodness on the inside. On another visit - the Chicago dogs are huge and true to an actual dog from Chicago {lived there for a number of years}. Be warned, they serve two dogs on a giant plate of waffle fries - so you can share the dish. Service has been off & on. The place is always crowded; some visits are quick, speedy & friendly - another visit was hurry up and wait. We sat at a table for 15 minutes before ANYBODY even glanced at us - I wonder why the hostess can't bring you water? Oh, keep an eye on your check. One time we ordered a special and on the board it had one price - but on the check another. The cashier suggested maybe we'd had something else? Uh, no. She didn't change our ticket or suggest a manager change our ticket. Whatever, it was a difference of 20cents...but hey, in this economy 20 cents is 20 cents!

Reviews:
Sonic is the best place to eat in Scottsville. There's a delightful array of fast food goodness, like chili-cheese fritos. I'm not saying it's the best food in the world-- of course it's not. But I'm trying to warn any visitors against eating at the many places I've been in Scottsville and gotten sick afterwards. I've been to Scottsville many times to visit friends and family, so I know that Sonic and McDonald's are the only safe options.

Pizza Hut

498 Old Gallatin Rd

Reviews:
I came here once with my church group, about 15 of us. The hostess stared at us with horror and stated, "There's no way we can feed all of you." I guess that explains why the restaurant was empty at lunchtime on a Sunday. If you are lucky enough to get seated at this Pizza Hut, order something from the menu. Don't get the buffet. Once an item runs out, they might not replace it. You could get stuck eating cucumbers and dessert pizza for lunch. This Pizza Hut is still better than the Mexican or Chinese restaurants nearby, which is why it gets two stars instead of one.
