Not much in way of atmosphere, but good service and had children’s menu. The food was was good and we ate there multiple time and quality was consistent. Prices were reasonable and not high for a tourist area.

We stayed right down the street and were very pleasantly surprised at the wonderful food and the friendly staff. Although it's small, the food is wonderful great choices for breakfast and lunch and coffee is always fresh. Great menu and reasonably priced. A Rockport MUST!

There is a nice beach just across the street from the restaurant with some parallel parking spots. However there are no benches or picnic tables on the beach. You could call Nates and ask what to do.
