Several of the graduates of Connecticut College chose to meet to celebrate at Captain Scott's. The weather was perfect and everyone got to choose ( and pay for) their own meal- a great idea. Bring your own beverage was an added plus. An excellent choice!

Food was excellent as was the location and environment. Hot lobster roll and steamers hit the spot. Onion rings, lobster bisque, clam strips and calamari were also tasty.
