We can depend on the Fish Shack for good food and service with a hometown feel. Excellent Lobster Casserole

We were walking around Rockport late afternoon and decided to have a drink and a snack. Ray Moore's Fish Shack had been recommended to us. There was a wait for a table in the restaurant, but there were a couple of seats at the bar,...More

With the right table you might catch a view of the water and some small pleasure boats. Expect to wait for a table in the summer. Fish reuben is good but not as good as Brewers Coalition in Newtonville, MA.

A great place to enjoy lunch or dinner especially if you love seafood. The prices are reasonable for Rockport. If you're fortunate you can get a table by the window and enjoy a magnificent sunset.

We were in Rockport for a few days in July and had lunch at the Fish Shack. We had been there in previous years during stays in the town, too. This year, most of our party had clam chowder and fried clams. Both were tasty....More

I'm not really sure. If you can eat steamed lobster or ask for the haddock prepared plain with some lemon juice. They always have a fresh vegetable and you can order salad as a second vegetable. I would think you could find... More
