Typical New England style lobster pound serving a lot more than lobster. Service counter pick up after you order, covered picnic table area can accommodate 100 + people. Prices are realistic; you get what you pay for. Located between a marina and the railroad tracks....More

Outdoor seating on the water. Large menu with generous lobster on the lobster roll. The onion rings were good. Leave room for the ice cream. They have Giffords, with the amazing Maine black bear flavor

Captain Scott's had a good selection of fried seafood at reasonable prices. It wasn't the best I've ever had, but it was a good meal. I had fried clams, shrimp, fish and fritters with red potatoes and coleslaw. My husband had fish and chips. Outside...More
