Captain Scott's is worth the drive from the upper part of the state. My favorite is the buttery lobster roll, which comes with a generous amount of lobster compared to a lot of other seafood restaurants in the area. The onion rings are good but I'm not too keen on the bumpy fries, which is why I gave the 4 star rating.

The atmosphere is great and you get to meet some really nice people out there, especially while waiting in the long line. It's better to get there around 4ish because it can get pretty crowded during dinner hours.

They also have live bands, which brings even more people out but I don't think it's worth standing in line for 45 minutes to order food. So, from now on I'll check their website to see if anyone is performing that evening.

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.

Had the"bread bow" of lobster bisque that was "to die for"! However, all of their seafood choices are "yummy"!
