My family has been going to Scribner's for close to 40 years. It is always a wonderful experience. Food is consistently good; try the Depot pie and Peach Freeze desserts and the staff is warm and accommodating. It's a great place to go with friends because you're never rushed. Family favorites are the catfish piccata and swordfish Gorgonzola. If you're... More

If you want great seafood, atmosphere and service, come to Scribner's! We had my wife's birthday dinner here and the food, atmosphere and service was excellent. Friday night is half price bottle of wine night! This place has been really good for over 30 years!

Interesting photo of Scribners back in the day in the lobby when it was on formerly named Cherry or Beach St as an old charming grocer/market on a dirt road with farmland in background. Note: We have never been here before so do not have the sentimental past memories or not being a local: have a feeling of familiarity or... More

Went for the seafood. Left still wanting seafood. The prices are high for what you get and the menu is boring. One of our party simply had a beer because you didn't see anything she wanted to order. I opted for a Caesar salad with blackened shrimp. The shrimp were an $8 add on and the menu stated it was... More

I have been to Scribner's in Milford, CT numerous times and their food and service have been outstanding. However, my son and I took my wife there on Sunday for Mother's Day and was extremely disappointed. First of all, they did not have enough menus! I'm assuming they knew it was Mother's Day! Our drink order took over 20 minutes... More

My first visit to Scribners was nearly 40+ years ago. A not so fancy eatery with lobster traps hanging, the smell of fresh fish and a screen door that would slam shut. You would often find a sand covered floor caused by customers walking in barefooted from Anchor beach The seafood was spectacular and worth every penny. One of my... More

I eat out all the time -- four or so times a week. I chose salmon from the quite-low-priced but extensive early-bird menu -- entree, salad, starch, vegetable, bread & butter, *and* soda. Not only was the salmon really good, but the house salad dressing was among the best I've ever had. And the mixed vegetables were even first-rate (how... More

We have been going here for about 25 years, on & off. We decided to go there the other night to have stuffed shrimp. We made reservations in the bar area. The menu has changed slightly and they had specials. The last time we were there I had ordered my favorite the Gorgonzola swordfish and was very disappointed. So we... More

We discovered Scribner's about a year ago and have taken to having dinner there every Friday night... This is good food at great prices served by a really friendly, attentive staff in an old fashioned, cozy place a half a block from the coast, so a seaside walk is always part of the visit... Can't say enough good things about... More

Terrific little bar that has the "hometown" feels of an intimate pub. Great food, great people and a nice spot to go solo with people that know your name!
