I gave up on Scargo when they served me a $14 Caesar salad made with ice berg lettuce. When I told the waitress, her answer was that it had Caesar dressing. Dressing does not a Caesar salad make. Gone. No more.More

Ouch! Wow that's a pretty wild experience. I'd be astounded if that happened to me too... and even more surprised if I received the response that you describe. We have not served a Caesar salad for over two years so I'm guessing it's been some...More

Hi Robert, Thanks so much for venturing out! I'm guessing you are a Resident Rewards club member now, and if so, don't let the dismal weather keep you home. We offer triple rewards points anytime it snows! Many thanks for the Scargo love. Cheers! Peter

Food was good, plentiful and served hot in a reasonably timely manner. Found restaurant a bit too loud for my taste, though, making conversation difficult, but would return and request a table in a different room than the area just off the entrance and bar.

A traditional, Tavern and Restaurant with wood paneled walls, open fireplaces and an outdoor covered deck for al Fresco dining during summer. The fare includes guest favorites such as roasted rack of New Zealand lamb, and seafood strudel (a seafood blend baked in pastry) with Newburg sauce. Lots of fresh local seafood and oysters. Many more seafood entrees, sandwiches, burgers, steaks, chicken, pasta selections, and their truly famous version of Grapenut Custard.
