Captain Scott’s Lobster Dock started in 1996 between the AMTRAK line and Crocker’s Boatyard. The location is a little hidden and your car map will not take you exactly there but drive around the harbor and you’ll see all the parked cars. It’s worth the hunt. You order at the window and pick up when called. Eating is at outdoor picnic tables, some with cover and others not. They are open daily until Dec. 24. You can bring your own beer or wine and try and get there early as reputation draws a crowd. It was a fun place to sit while we waited a short bit for our food. Several trains passed by in the meantime.
Hot Lobster Roll is their most popular item and contains hot lobster meat drizzled with warm butter on a toasted roll. It comes in 2 sizes and is served with coleslaw and tartar sauce. We got the large size but the rolls are for one person and the only change I’d make would be to add the extra butter I saw a sign for on the counter. We also added a bit of salt. The fresh lobster meat was excellent served on nicely toasted bread. It was well stuffed. The coleslaw was good, not overdressed with tasty crisp cabbage.
We added a large order of onion rings as we read they made them but they seemed more of a pre-made frozen variety. They were fine, crisp, and not greasy but the onion was lost. The salty crisp was good with the roll, though.
