Breakfast here every day! Muffins and Anadama bread were wonderful. So was everything else! Small restaurant, so if you're there go early or be prepared to wait. It is well worth a wait.

We try to get to Rockport at least once or twice a year. This is the place to go for sure. Best homemade hash ever. Friendly! You won't be disappointed! You may have to wait for a table though but is well worth it!

We've come to Rockport many times, but there has always been a line here in high season, and now we know why: their food is basic, but tasty and very inexpensive (relatively). We'll have to try to visit "off season" (or at least not at the height of lunch hour) more often.

Clean, nice, reasonable and a good breakfast. I think they were just opening for the season but we needed a breakfast place and loved this little place. Not much space so we sat at the counter and had great service and I enjoyed watching the two good looking guys cook.

Absolutely love the Red Skiff and eat there every time I go to Rockport to see family. Highly recommend the crab cake eggs Benedict. Also great for kids too.

Ok I admit I'm no coffee hound and think the world discriminates against orange juice drinkers but after the third attempt at a drink that resembled a full bodied glass of juice it looks like the juice comes out of a coke machine and mixes syrup with water. When serving a good breakfast there is no compromise for a proper... More

We had breakfast here before we left town. It was crowded and we had to eat at the bar but it didn't matter once we got our breakfasts. Everything was tasty, especially the rye toast! The coffee was good and hot, the service was friendly and quick, and the food was very very good for starting off our day.

I took my friend to Rockport to celebrate her birthday early and we stopped here for breakfast after I had bookmarked it on Yelp. It took about 10 minutes for us to be seated as it was packed when we arrived. We sat at the bar and got to see all the hustle and bustle of the cooks while they... More

We've always loved the Red Skiff Restaurant, but the new ownership has taken it to a whole new level, maintaining that quaint "local" feel, but amping up the taste and cleanliness of the seating area and kitchen. The food is some of our favorite in the area! Super tasty smoked salmon eggs Benedict special and great fish and chips (real... More
