This place sits downtown rockport and is perfect for breakfast. Small, friendly and welcoming and the food is delicious. Definitely recommend this when staying in Rockport. They open at 6 am which was perfect when having an early tour or trip scheduled. The best thing about it besidea the great food was the local touch.

Hubby and I had breakfast and enjoyed the food and the small town atmosphere. It’s a small diner in town, very crowded with regulars and tourists all snug together but comfortable. Not long of a wait even being crowded. We both had the veggie omelet and I asked for no peppers and got no peppers. The Anadama bread, which comes... More

We ate breakfast at 7 on a weekday and it was pleasantly unfilled when we arrived. It filled up fast while we were eating and started to feel small but the food was excellent and the staff was friendly and efficient. I'd eat there again for sure.

My wife and I went to Red Skiff for breakfast on a weekday, and we were able to sit right away at the 5-6 stool counter. The place is very small -- maybe 20 people could fit in at the same time. There's no outdoor seating and no view of the water. The place is very popular, so you'll want... More

One of my favorite accidental finds. Had no expectations; just hungry and loved the menu (we wanted a grilled cheese!). Wow, I'd go here every day if I lived in Rockport. Friend and I shared a grilled cheese with tomato on Rye bread and a grilled hot dog. I wanted every bite of that grilled cheese and the entire hot... More

Ate lunch there at our last trip to Rockport. I had a BLT and my wife had the haddock sandwich. Both were great. The place was small and crowded but the staff seated us soon. Open for breakfast and lunch only. Bottom line I would not hesitate to recommend and will be returning.

Food and service are outstanding. The breakfast Burrito was huge and incredible for the price. Friendly staff. The tables were a bit tight and there was no outside seating...but don;t let this stop you. This is a MUST!

Strolled into the Red Skiff while needing breakfast in Rockport, Mass. Very impressed with the hearty breakfast offerings. Cozy mix of locals and visitors. I'll return when in the area. Omelets are very good. Wait staff a good mix of welcoming, friendly and efficient. Sat at counter and enjoyed watching cooks speed through the preps. You can see the kitchen!... More

We love corned beef hash and it was quite good here! Over medium egg cooked perfectly. Western omelet very good. Staff very attentive and competent. Clean. Worth a visit!
