A Hidden Gem

My wife and I brought my Mom to Scott's while Mom was visiting from FL. We were amazed with our experience at Scott's. We ordered 3 Lobster Rolls (a Scott's specialty), Lobster Bisque, fried Whole Belly Clams, and fries. We got there at about 11:30 am on a Saturday, and the place was already... read more

If you like your lobster rolls with butter this the place to go to experience a true Connecticut style lobster roll. They are big meaty and fresh. We highly recommend if you are visiting the Connecticut shoreline.

I love to go here, sit outside and eat the large hot lobster roll, it is delicious and hardy. The lobster salad is excellent as well as the onion rings. Then top it off with the ice cream! Life is good!

Found out that this place is dog friendly and so we went. The food is yummy. Had Lobster Bisque and Lobster Roll. Very very good. Lovely place too by the water. My suggestion bring your own alcohol since they don't serve any. We had some nice local kids give us some of their beer. Definitely go here

This was my first stop so I have nothing to compare it to. However, the lobster was fresh and tasty. There was a lot of meat on my small roll. The cole slaw was very good. The bread was grilled and tasty. The outdoor seating is wonderful on a sunny day. I would come back.

Great food. Whole lobsters, steamed clams, delicious lobster rolls. Casual eating- picnic benches under open building. Dog friendly too :)

We went out of our way to find a place to dine with our dog. It was completely worth it! I got the large hot lobster roll and my husband got the cold. Both were great and it was nice to sit outside under the pavilion by the water on a beautiful day. We will definitely stop back when we... More

Love this place! Located at a small marina in New London - you can sit by the water and eat your seafood outside. So much fun - you order at a window and they call your name when your food is ready. Very busy place in the nice weather. I've had lobster rolls, clam strip rolls, red potatoes, steamers -... More

If you're in the New London, CT area and in the mood for a big ole fried fish platter or an excellent lobster roll, this is your place! Views are not pretty, and the prices are not cheap (they're fair), but the food NEVER disappoints. Only open in the Spring, Summer and Fall, and there's only picnic table seating, though... More
