Our Story

The first Scott’s Seafood restaurant was started in 1976 in the Marina District in San Francisco.  Since then, other Scott’s Seafood restaurants in San Jose, Oakland, Sacramento, and Folsom have evolved, each with their own unique menu and ambiance, and catering to their own local communities.  While each restaurant is independently owned and operated, they all continue to serve the finest, freshest seafood and award-winning clam chowder.

Scott’s Seafood has been a South Bay tradition for over 30 years, with an emphasis on sustainable, healthy food options.  Scott’s Seafood has won the People’s Choice Award for its Boston Style Clam Chowder several years running, reaffirming the consideration that goes in to crafting each meal.

Scott’s Seafood in San Jose recently expanded its footprint by opening a series of fast casual restaurants named Scott’s Chowder House which offers not only its chowders, but also lobster rolls and a variety of other new menu choices not found at its Scotts Seafood sibling.

Our Chowder Houses are located in San Jose and San Francisco, and serve our award-winning chowders, salads and sandwiches, in a casual dining setting where you can eat in or grab and go.


Our food truck serves all of our delicious chowders and lobster rolls, right to your location.  Check out where we’ll be next or have us cater your next event with a food truck to your doorstep.
