A HIDDEN GEM

you must find Scotts as u go south on Hwy 1.A veritable 41 yo small "to go" shack that serves almost anything fr lobster/crab roll to hamburger/fries/onion rings. it is a local staple and a MUST for a serious traveler. just GO :)

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

Very much enjoyed a veggie burger with lettuce, tomato, chopped onion. The best onion rings I've had in a LONG time!

This place is perfect if you want a quick lunch that is good! The people are friendly. The service is fast. The prices are reasonable. And, again, the food is really quite good.

This Foodie Landmark is a MUST stop on the way into Camden! Pull into Reny's parking lot, order 2 cheeseburgers with L&T and then go get some socks at Reny's. Come back, sit outside and enjoy. Full carbs, full gluten, full fat, full of flavor - besides, you are on vacation! Right?
