Captain Scott’s Lobster Dock

Review by: Roadfood Team

Captain Scott’s Lobster Dock is tucked into a small strip of land between the cove that services Crocker’s Boatyard and the AMTRAK Mainline.  This restaurant is not easy to find for locals much less for out of towners. But is the search ever worthwhile! Captain Scott’s provides delightful atmosphere, leisurely dining, and the highest quality and most reasonably priced seafood in Southeastern CT.

What should I eat at Captain Scott’s Lobster Dock?

The fish is tender, flaky, and succulent; the fries crisp and hot; and, when you pass the melted butter and the malt vinegar you feel as though you are in Sea Food Heaven. Do not miss the hot (or cold) Lobster Roll. Voted best in New London County several years in a row, it is packed with tender pieces of lobster and served on a fresh hot dog type roll with a side of cole slaw. Sharing an order of Fish & Chips and the Hot Lobster Roll is more than enough for two people.

A couple of tips for eating at Captain Scott’s Lobster Dock

Bring your own beer or wine, so a superb dinner for two is less than $20. The best bargain on the menu is undoubtedly the Fish & Chips.  One hint is to get there early or a little later in the evening since the dinner time crowd  can cause quite a backlog. The reward of excellent food is well worth the time to find your way to Captain Scott’s.  And that glass of wine or bottle of beer does wonders to pass the time while you enjoy the boats or the occasional passing by of an Acela Express on the AMTRAK line. *Original Post by Cliff Stehle*
