The atompshere is great, typical New England 'calm shack/lobster roll' place,but the food is excellent. There are picnic tables that are overlooking the harbor, and it is just beautiful. We had the lobster bisque, the fishermans platter, and lobster roll and it was so fresh,...More

Steamers great, whole lobster tough and extremely disappointing. Scenery ok, and food is mediocre. Outside picnic tables would be an asset for families with children. Not our cup of tea.

Good food, quick service and the scenery is awesome! Away from thehustle and bustle of downtown Rockport. A little pricey, but anyplace on the shore is.

Went for lunch because it was recommended very highly by a resident in Rockport. The food was good, but it seemed very overpriced. The clam plate--fried clams, french fries, and a tiny cup of awful cole slaw was $32. Partner had fish and chips…2 small...More
