Stood in line with friendly people, soaking up sunshine, chatting and salivating. Gave my order to a cheerful order-taker. Waited a few minutes and nearly needed a truck to carry this sandwich to the table. My roll was overflowing with Lobster chunks. A side of...More

Sea scallops, warm lobster rolls are amazing. This is a must stop in the area. Nice marina setting. Surprisingly if you pay with a credit card they ask for tips, but the place is exclusively a pickup window. No servers so wonder if the cooks...More

There's no specific reason I didn't choose the 5th circle in this rating other than the fact that everything was good but nothing was wow. I would probably eat here again if I lived close. This is outdoor, counter-service with picnic table seating. Some tables...More

Just got back from lunch at the Dock. Lobster roll was tasty, needed seasoning (added S&P and was better). My expectation for bisque is a THICK creamy soup, this was not it. Thin in consistency and lobster! Granted, we are from Maryland/Delaware/Chesapeake Bay area and...More

This dockside restaurant was within walking distance of our rental during a week-long trip to New London. Needless to say, we went here quite a bit. I had the lobster bisque, which was probably the best seafood soup I have ever eaten. My son got...More

Capt. Scotts is a local favorite. Food is pretty good- depends on how crowded and fast they are pumping the food out. Lobster roll is great and their scallops are really good as well. Outdoor seating on the docks makes for a nice view. The...More

There are two sizes of lobster rolls and either hot or cold. The cold has a good bit more butter on the roll and tends to fall apart when you're eating it. The large roll is big enough for two if you get fries and an extra... More
