I loved that Captain Scott’s faces the USCG’s National Museum Association’s new office location on the historic Crocker’s Boat House properties.

We always check Travel Advisor for recommendations and tried Scott's based on the reviews. This place was great!!! The Whole Bellied Clams and The Lobster Roll were great. We had better Scallops on our trip but these were still very good!!!

This is great casual place to go if you have time to sit, relax and eat. Don't go if you're in a rush. Now that the weather is nicer, the line will be huge! I personally think it's worth the wait. You can BYOB so...More
