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!

While I didnt think my pasta was extra ordinary, my coworker enjoyed his lobster. Clam chowder was just ok. This is a nice place to just sit back, relax and enjoy dinner...it probably wasnt too busy since it was a Tue night. I will return if i come back to Milford. Our server was attentive so good job to her

Scribner's is our favorite place to eat in Milford. It is a place to celebrate, a place to entertain friends, and a place to rest comfortably till dinner is served. Julie runs the bar and serves the booths there- doing a great job. The seafood is recommended and the salads- I love the house dressing! My husband loves the swordfish... More

Scribner's is our "go-to" restaurant in Milford when we feel like having seafood. The food is always good, service is good and I like the atmosphere. Even when it's crowded it's never noisy...you don't see kids running around or screaming which is what I look for when I'm going out for a nice relaxing dinner. The prices are fairly reasonable...
