Smooth Sailing at Captain Scott Restaurant

For over 50 years Captain Scott's has been serving seafood favorites and mediterranean specilaities on Tupper Road in Sandwich with the ambience of a cozy Cape Cod bungalow and the occassional sounds of a Cape Cod Train as they make their way to the canal. It all serves as a pleasant reminder of just where you are dining and a comfortable feeling of being a traveler on a journey filled with new experiences. The owners of Captain Scott's make it affordable with Lunch and Dinner Specials that change daily. For a $14 an exploring diner can enjoy a choice of salad, entree and dessert with some great choices of Baked Stuffed Scrod, New England Meatloaf, Swordfish Tips over Rice, Greek Style Pork Chops, Greek Styled Chicken and Shrimp Scampi just to name a few. By the menu selections, a diner can tell that their specialty is Greek food and if you are adventerous you should try some of their Greek specilities. As you know I like trying new restaurants or places that I have not yet visited and it has left me with not just one favorite restaurant but many places I like to visit on my travels around Cape. Captain Scott's was a pleasant stop on our way to the canal and the menu gave us lots of choices for all food lovers as well as a good Gluten free Menu. We started with a cup of Clam Chowder for my seafood loving friend and I tried  the Lobster Bisque which were both delicious and all that they had promised with a rich creamy flavorful seafood base. The Bisque had a light sherry flavor with nice bits of lobster and the chowder was rich in clams and potatoes. The salad that came with my friend Sue choice proved to be a garden fresh prelude to her Ocean Fresh Swordfish Tips served over a bed of rice with a light lemon dill sauce to enhance the overall flavor. I tried a Stuffed Quahog which in presentaion was awesome on a bed of lettuce with rings of hot peppers, cocktail sauce and warm butter but the flavor of the stuffing was dull as it had not, as I believe been infused by the broth of the clams. It was good but needed the kick of the clam broth to really make it come alive. I had the Baked Stuffed Shrimp and Scallops which were delicious and cooked to perfection with a creamy sherry based sauce but the stuffing was as dull as the stuffing from the quahog with no rich seafood flavor. My non seafood loving friend tried one of the daily specials which was an Eggplant Parmesan Sandwich which fries which she claims are the best on Cape Cod. She totally loved her sandwich and it was all it had promised and more. For the rare person who loves smelts I encourage you to come here as Captain Scott's really does extremely well with delicious fried seafood choices and offers a Smelt Plate. My friend orderer her's to go for a later dining experience. They have great choices like the Althena Sandwich which is Golden Fried Haddock Topped with Roasted Tomatoes, Spinach, and Melted Feta Cheese on Toasted Panini Bread and lots more dinner choices. The serve is friendly and the restaurant is cozy and comfortable. I will be visiting them again as I see there are lots of choices and I am looking forward to trying something Greek. I also look forward to trying their Seafood Chowder which includes Fresh Clams, Scrod, and Sole in a Creamy Mix of Lobster Bisque and Clam Chowder. Thanks Captain Scott !!
