CAPT Scott's doesn't disappoint. I go there every time I travel to the New London area. I love the dockside location and the people are always friendly. I don't stray from my favorite - hot lobster roll! It's BYOB if you want to drink. Enjoy

This place is well worth the wait!! A little hidden but parking is easy. My family came after a boat tour and it was the perfect ending to our day trip. We tried the New England Clam Chowder, Lobster Bisque, Clam cakes, cold Lobster roll,...More

I live in New London but hadn't been here in ages, but when a friend visited from out of state today it seemed like the perfect place for a casual lunch. Arrived just after 1 (on a Monday), so at the height of lunch hour....More
