Inexplicable is the only word I can use to describe the service. No busser. No food runner. A waiter who had no clue, no personality,no clue on the menu and no service. We should have known when one in our party ordered a wine spritzer and you would have thought we insulted him. Never mind he had no clue whether... More

I was attracted to this local restaurant because of it unusual menu. The calamari appetizer was excellent. They were thick pieces of calamari dipped in an excellent batter. The main courses were a disappointment. I tried the Seafood Alfredo. Alfredo sauce should be a creamy thick white sauce. Their version was a white soupy sauce that was not very tasty.... More

This place has been around for many years but it has not lost it's charm- good food and portions You can grab a bite and a drink in the bar area but it is very small and has the regular's customers conversing. The dining room is quaint and the service is great- very attentive to your needs. They have early... More

So many years, so many wasted opportunities! Our son graduated from Yale and over the years visiting, we've eaten at "the best" and most noted spots. To say we are particular and demanding in terms of food quality and service is to make a gross understatement. We "fell" across Scribner's because we had to come to the outskirts for accommodations... More

Went here for a birthday earlier this month. Called Saturday AM for that evening, party of 10 reservation, could accommodate, no problem. That was great! Got there, seated immediately. Ambiance was very 70s, but that's okay. Service was good, a little slow. They agreed to do separate checks, no problem. At end of night, they messed up checks a few... More

Scribner's is a local treasure with a great atmosphere and a location near the water. With a nice early bird menu, you can sample some great fare at a reasonable price if you dine early. Exciting specials and a great bar round out this perfect dining experience. It is off the beaten path, so be sure you get directions. Reservations... More

Had a great meal at a discount before 6:30.... Comes with dinner, salad and a drink. Food has been great and the service is excellent. Been there a number of times and no disappointment. Other prices are very reasonable.

Scribner's has been a long time favorite of mine. The food is always excellent, and for that reason it is sometimes crowded. It is my restaurant of choice when I want to celebration something special.

We have dined here over the years and it keeps getting better. Located in a neighborhood near the water, Scribner's has been serving great food for 40 years. The meals include a salad and they are generously portioned. The escargot appetizer is delicious, as was the fish cakes and both come highly recommended. I had the scallop special and hubby... More
