Captain Scott knows where to get his seafood!! It was spectacular. Cool evening warmed up with lobster bisque.

Captain Scott's Lobster Dock is a good place to go for a meal. Either sea food or land lubbers (hamburgers, hot dogs etc.). All of which is very good. My wife and I have only been there around noontime so I do not know how...More

This is our favorite spot when celebrating special occasions! Our favorites are whole clams, oysters & the lobster bisque. Staff is fabulous & our meals are fresh & cooked to perfection.

Good food . The lobster bisque is delicious and has ample amounts of lobster chunks . The hot lobster roll is to die for !!

They do have hot or cold styles. We had cold (Maine) style. Decent amount of lobstah but just unexciting to us overall. Overly doughy clam fritters. GREAT fries, with sriracha ketchup the highlight of the meals. Window ordering, outdoor seating. No liquor license

Went to Captain Scott's recently late on a Monday afternoon, and it was quiet and the service fast! Judging from other reviews, this can be a madhouse on weekends, so i suggest going during the week - and the chow is worth it. Fried seafood...More
