Over Father’s Day weekend, I had lunch with my sister at Captain Scott’s Lobster Dock in New London, Connecticut. Located behind some warehouses in a part of town I’d never visited, the seasonal seafood joint had a long line on an early Saturday afternoon, but it moved pretty quickly.
Once at the front, I ordered a cold lobster roll and my sister got a hot lobster roll ($14.95 each), plus French fries and drinks.
We watched a family of geese near the boats while we waited for our meal.
When they called my name, we grabbed our food trays and sat at a picnic table under the shaded area of the patio. Both lobster rolls were full of large chunks of lobster meat.
My sister’s was warm and buttery, with extra melted butter on the side for dipping. Mine was lightly dressed with mayo, dotted with crunchy diced celery, and flecked with salt and pepper. The lobster tasted fresh from the sea and overflowed from the split-top hot dog bun.
I definitely recommend stopping by Captain Scott’s the next time you’re near New London. Just follow the signs.
