Arrive at 3pm. Leave at sunset. Bring your libation and start with an appetizer, hour later have a salad, then hour later have your entree. Finish with Ice cream. Perfect Sunday afternoon.

We've been disappointed before by hyped up lobster rolls, but not at Scott's!

I love this place! It features lobster rolls (hot and cold) and fried sea food. You also bring your own booze which is nice. This is truly "no - frills" . Everything is delivered on a plastic tray and you eat at picnic tables. The only reason I didn't rate this a 5 is the fact that the roll on... More

If you want the real deal, you go to Scott's. Ask any local or just go see for yourself. It's outside on the dock like it should be. Get a roll and fried clams and enjoy a real New England experience. My Mom is picky picky and this is here go to place. You will not find a better experience... More

If you are looking for a glamorous place to eat, this isn't the place for you. If you are looking for a real New England experience and some great sea food, you will be in heaven. The lobster couldn't be fresher - my husband absolutely loved his - and I enjoyed some tasty fish and chips. You will be 'roughing'... More
