We had the classic 2pc fish and chips. Wonderful!! Food was great, staff was friendly. They have walls full of tourist messages, how fun! We are on the Island for another week, we will be going back before we leave.

This is always our first stop when we arrive in Cavendish. The Fries with the works are super yummy! Prices are really good for the food quality and portions are generous. The fries are really really good. They have seafood, burgers, several flavours of shakes etc.

My daughter and I keep coming back to Captain Scott's. Although I've had the fish & chips other years I had the fried clams and chips on this trip. The fried clams are such a treat. They are plump and tasty and the servings at Captain Scott's are generous. Great fries too. We'll be back again.
