Description: From the wrought iron windows to the imported Mexican crosses, let The Scorpion Bar transport you to another time and place. If you're looking for authentic and innovative Mexican-inspired cuisine, an assortment of the best tequilas and an energetic environment with great rock and roll music, you've come to the right place. The Scorpion Bar features creative, traditional-style Mexican cuisine developed by Big Night Entertainment Group's Chef Kevin Long and Scorpion's Executive Chef Kevin Scott. The 5,000 square foot venue accommodates up to 300 people and features an entertainment stage where bands and DJs perform rock classics and remixed rock and roll every weekend and select nights during the week. The Scorpion Bar is a perfect place to feel like you are right in Mexico.

I've been here many times to drink, but just ate here for the first time. OH MY! The food is so so good. The atmosphere feels funky to eat in, its very dark, the music is blaring and the table we ate at was really low but you'll over look all of this once you get your meal. We ordered a shrimp pasta special, side of plantains and the black bean and jalapeño enchiladas. The pasta was in a light sauce, full of veggies and shrimp...amazing. The enchiladas were Not soggy! The veggies in them were so fresh and crispy. I ate more than I ever eat. The plantains are madurai style (smashed and crispy) and came in a huge amount. This is the best mexican food around.

This is primarily a bar atmosphere, so we only went in for the Taco Tuesday special: $3.00 tacos. They were tasty and a bargain since we were not very hungry.

Waitress had major attitude. People in our party never received their drinks that they ordered. Food prices were very high, not impressed with the quality.

While at Foxwoods we had lunch at the Scorpion Bar and found the service attentive, the food very good (the Taco Salad my date had was delicious as were my quesadillas) and reasonably priced, and the atmosphere with low lighting pleasant... the only drawback was the rock music was a little loud.

Be sure to stop in to try the Margaritas here- especially on Monday when they're only 7 bucks. The shrimp tacos and Mexican chopped salad was delish as well. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff- you won't be disappointed.
