Dining With Susan: Scribner’s Restaurant

Dining With Susan: Scribner’s Restaurant

Scribner’s Restaurant has always been one of my favorite restaurants in the area. So I thought it was time to revisit this well respected and popular restaurant for the holiday season. Scribner and Susan Bliss have owned this iconic establishment for 39 years. Quite an accomplishment in the ever changing restaurant world. They are a lovely couple who are very dedicated to their successful restaurant. Scribner’s Restaurant is located in the Woodmont section of Milford just steps away from the sweeping views of Long Island Sound.

Scribner’s well prepared food along with impeccable service always impresses my out of town guests and business associates. This award winning establishment has been consistently recognized as one of the best seafood restaurants in Connecticut. Scribner’s serves only the highest quality fresh fish and shellfish. The restaurant has an extremely warm & cozy atmosphere showcasing many antiques along with a nautical theme. Its crisp linen tablecloths and napkins add that special touch that makes it the perfect place for a true dining experience.     Scribner’s has 2 dining rooms and a friendly bar that is always busy with local folk. Scribner’s offers specials every day that appear on the back of the regular menu. The chef is very creative and always has very colorful names for his daily specials such as “The Maine Event” (Maine steamer clams served with drawn broth & butter), “Oysters gone wild”, “Join the Grouper”, Slammin Salmon”, “Mahi’s a jolly good fellow”, just to name a few.

Scribner’s homemade bread is always served warm with whipped butter. My favorite salad at Scribner’s is the Bleu and Green with romaine lettuce, tomato, blue cheese, Gorgonzola, Pecorino cheese, bacon, and red onions with house made Dijon vinaigrette. I especially enjoy the baked stuffed Sea Scallops with sherry, buttered breadcrumbs along with the steamed Lobster Tails, New York Strip and Chicken Sicilian. Scribner’s definitely offers the best Lobster in the area. Please note that there are many choices for non-fish lovers along with a bar menu. Scribner’s desserts are house made with daily specials. Espresso, cappuccino & special coffees complete the outstanding dinner.

Scribner’s offers a great ” Early Dining Menu” served 7 days a week ranging from $14.95-$16.95 including the entrée, house salad, bread, potato or rice and a fresh vegetable with coffee, tea or soft drink. The choices include Baked Stuffed Scallops, Baked Stuffed Shrimp, Chicken Florentine, Scribner Scampi, Shoulder Tenderloin, Grilled Pork Mignon, Fish & Chips, Grilled Salmon, Southern Fried Catfish, Baked Cod, & Swordfish Gorgonzola. Such a wide variety and reasonable price for an early dining menu. The other special is “Half Price Wine Nights” on Tuesdays and Fridays. All bottles on their extensive wine list are offered at ½ price on these evenings when you purchase entrees. Scribner’s is a true example of an elegant but casual “New England Style” restaurant.
