We dined at Scribners for decades.

This is a sea food restaurant, off the beaten path, in Woodmont section of Milford. Park your car on the street or drive around back, you can enter from the back also. There are two dinning areas plus bar area. The sea food is the best in this area and the service is always great. After you dine... read more

Went to Scribner's for an anniversay celebration. The decorations, the atmosphere, the service and lastly the food were absolutely perfect. I had gone to this restaurant early in the Spring this year and was pleased and wanted to return. In December, I was able to join a few friends to celebrate an anniversay and we all were delighted. So very... More

I'll be the first to say, I had a very pleasant dining experience at Scribners this evening. The night started out interesting with the hostess being a little air headed but, once we were seated it was fine. I quickly was served bread and sparkling water and given menus. My mom and I decided to order stuffed clams, fried calamari,... More

We went there for the first time during Milford Restaurant Week! I had sweet potato crusted salmon and my husband had Cod. Both of our dinners were delicious. We would love to visit again!

The food was very good, the service left a little to be desired as I was dining alone and was not treated as good as the couples but the food was good.

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

The dining room is quaint and the service is great- very attentive to your needs. They have early... More
