Probably my 5th visit. Menu is heavy on seafood which you would expect at a naval themed restaurant a stones throw away from the ocean. Service is really excellent, menu is small but good. Their ingredients however are the best. Everything tastes excellent. Whether that be the steamers or the... read more

We decided to try something new a little further away, not quite 30 miles, for our anniversary. We were extremely pleased with our choice. We arrived just after 5 for the specials, which really were smaller versions of the full dinner meal. I decided on the baked stuff shrimp special, and my spouse a full dinner scallops casserole. The few... More

4 of us visited for dinner. Although 3 of the meat dishes were classified as good, the fries were disappointing, the Roquefort salad dressing rather vinegar-y, the bacon asiago dressing bland, and the early bird swordfish gorgonzola extremely bland. No fish flavor to the slice of fish, red onion topping in large pieces which weren't cooked to tenderness, bland gorgonzola.... More

The food was average while the price was well above average. The ambiance is great but the service was slow, maybe typical of a slow Tuesday night with light business.

We happened upon Scribner's, a landmark among the locals & in the know visitors. We enjoyed a good old fashioned well prepared & presented dinner for 2. Their Littleneck Sauté appetizer was incredible, as were our 2 entree choices of Stuffed 1 1/4 lb Lobster and Surf & Turf with an 8oz Filet and a Steamed Lobster Tail. Bread &... More

Even after so many years this place is still pretty busy on a Friday night, I guess cuz it is the only place with a large reasonably priced seafood menu, and plenty of tables, decent atmosphere. Both of us got the rice, and were surprised at the very small portion on the plate. But once we tasted it we realized... More

Nice food, good services, and Tuesday and Friday wine at half price, as the cellar is well stocked, we recommend you to come and enjoy. The stuffed lobster ie very good.

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 just a... 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
