Loved it! Great, fresh seafood. We stumbled upon it using TripAdvisor. There is no indoor dining so sitting outside early April was chilly but worth it. The portions were huge - I definitely could have shared with someone as it was way too much food...More

Love going to Captain Scott's Lobster Dock. It's located by the Thames River in New London and has outdoor covered seating areas. Go on a sunny day and bask in the warmth, enjoy the nearby boats and delight in a chowder and a lobster roll....More

This a casual place that has picnic tables and serves simple beach food: fresh fried seafood and Lobster rolls hot or cold. You order at the window. If they have the grilled fish taco special get it, yum.

Best lobster roll I’ve had at any price! The large, foot long is all lobster and only $18! Whole, belly in, fried clams that are not greasy. Outdoor picnic tables only.

We chose this café to experience a bit of New England cuisine, and because it was about halfway between New York City and Boston on a recent road trip. We ate our lobster rolls outdoors on the picnic tables on a sparkling autumn day. The...More

Came here recently for dinner and really enjoyed it. I started with a lobster bisque which was delicious. I then had the sea scallops, and they were equally nice. The staff (at the window) was very nice and the prices were in line with expectations....More
