Love this for breakfast. Went there 3 mornings in a row. Friendly service with yummy food. My favorite was the blueberry pancake with lemon zest.

We were very impressed by the quality of the food (we had the lobster roll and the haddock fillet sandwich). Very fresh and tasty. Excellent service. The menu was very limited unfortunately. We went in mid-May. I'm guessing it was a limited pre-summer menu?

The service and food were both very good. There aren't many tables and the locals that come to chat are not in a big hurry. We didn't have a wait but I suspect it will be different during the season. The eggs, home fries and...More

Nate's is just across from Front Beach and is a cozy, unpretentious place with great food options. We had a delightful breakfast there. Friendly service, incredibly large portions, very tasty food.

Been vacationing in Rockport the last 5 years. Nate's is my personal favorite because of the great people and quaint atmosphere. Great breakfast items, and also absolutely love the scallops!

Went here for breakfast and had a nice meal. Service was friendly and quick. The place is super small so no can only imagine how busy it gets during more popular times. Glad we went when it was off season.

We have been to Nate's numerous times and always enjoyed our meals. The food is always delicious. Breakfast specials this week included blueberry lemon zest pancakes and lobster eggs Benedict, both of which were excellent. Their take-out service in the summer is great to take...More

If I roll up with a party of 10-12 people, is there a place nearby where we could take the food for a picnic?

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.
