Lobster rolls, clam chowder, fried clams, calamari, fried fish dinners or sandwiches all are incredibly fresh and delicious at this outdoor eatery. A sunny day brings crowds, but the food is popular enough to enjoy on a cooler day in a warm jacket at a picnic table under the pavilion. The line is often long, but the kitchen is quick.... More

I had the fish & chips, which was very good. The rest of our group had hot or cold lobster rolls that had a lot of meat in them and they said that they were delicious. This is a great place to grab a bite to eat.

I only just discovered Scott's last year, after living here for most of my life. It's tucked away in New London, so you have to be looking for it to find it. But it's beautifully located on the water with picnic tables for seating. The line is usually long, but it's worth the wait. The lobster roll is delicious!

Great seafood! Love theto location. Great selection, all the traditional choices and appropriate portions for the prices. Fish was very fresh. Fritters were spot on! Fish market attached was also excellent. Service was soso but they were slammed, so no judgment there. Will be returning next summer!

If you live fresh seafood like I do, then you will love Scott's. It's BYOB, which doesn't matter to me, but my husband likes to bring a few beers or a bottle of wine to have with our dinner. I always get the hot lobster roll, which comes on a toasted hotdog roll with heaps of hot lobster meat and... More

Growing up in Massachusetts, I've always been big on fish and chips and there's not as many choice around new london. But this is by far the best one. Only thing is i wish it was open year round.

I loooove this place! The freshest and most delicious seafood around! If you haven't tried yet, you're missing out. I couldn't say only a few items are tasty...they're all great!

Great Lobster Roll and and Bisque. The place going to Captain Scott was a little shady so do drive there. Once you get in the dock, there is a fair large parking lot with rows and rows of tables. Order from the stall which reminded me like a food truck and they'll call you. We went early so there wasn't... More
