Reliable, fast and reasonably priced

You can count on Scott's for good burgers, hot dogs, fries, and more. I often get the haddock melt, and it is great. Just look for the Reny's sign as you come into Camden from the South.

This place has been around forever. A nice place for a quick hot dog or sandwich. Location is convenient to Renys. My wife loves the breaded breast of chicken sandwich.

A family "hot dog wagon" for many years that serves lots of other things too. At $10.99 they have the least expense lobster rolls in the area.

Don't mistake this lunch shack parked in Reny's shopping area as just like any other fast food place. Scott's Place has good nutritious fare that is next to impossible to find in a place like this. You can get burgers and hot dogs, certainly, but you can also get chicken and tuna salad, lobster and crab. And the prices are... More

Yes it's in a parking lot and it's a trailer. But..... Fast and quite tasty. No claims other than Scott's has hundreds of customers who are loyal and steadfast. Many imitators but most fall short. Friendly and welcoming. Worth a trip.

After seeking a decent place to eat in Camden we stumbled across this food truck. Wow what a find. Fantastic lobster roll and fries. Kudos to the people who work in such a cramped space and churn out high quality food.

A really bad burger here. Very low grade meat. I fail to see the allure of the place. Perhaps the other choices are better. I wish it could write that it was better as the three folks in the shack were working their tails off. The good news is the place has a steady stream of locals so I don't... More

Scott's Place is a Camden fixture… been in the same spot since '74. Every time I come to Camden, I have to get a crabmeat roll there. The food is among the best for lunch cart fare. Picnic tables flank the cart, but the busy traffic in the parking lot, doesn't lend itself to an enjoyable meal. Take your food,... More

Have stopped here for lunch many times while traveling Rt. 1 on business. Chicken salad sandwich is unbeatable for an excellent quick lunch. Very tasty and chunky with a minimum of mayo. Chicken salad is often confused with tuna salad in its preparation but that is not the case here. Sit at one of the picnic tables under trees and... More
