We enjoyed almost everything in this quaint tiny restaurant. Love the decor! We had yummy cocktails and shrimp board to start. Caesar salad was a bust... soggy salad greens and chopped bread not toasted crotons. Fried chicken was our favorite entree. Also liked Mom's Shrimp... great sauce! Grouper was good but not as unique. Filet was cooked perfectly. Chocolate Pot... More

Small, quaint restaurant with excellent cocktails, good wine list, and wonderful menu. Shrimp is fresh as and the herbs and veggies. Great evening.

The location was very good and the restaurant is small, but intimate. Our waiter was very good as well, but the food was tepid and not all served at the same time. Do not think this was waiter's fault, but the fault of the kitchen. Would probably not go back again.

This is a small chef owned restaurant. The menu was creative and there were even a couple of vegetarian options. The cocktails were also creative and yummy. I highly recommend this for a delightful dinner. The evening was pleasant when we were there so we ate outside which is quiet and cozy. The food was leagues better than the several... More

We enjoyed the crab cakes, shrimp dish, and grouper. All were very good. The restaurant is small and was quiet on a weeknight. The service was friendly and helpful. This is the second time we have dined here. The first time was a year ago.

What a great little restaurant and a fabulous experience! Delicious food and wonderful service! Would definitely go back! Our fav was a tie between the Crab & Shrimp cakes or the Chocolate Pot--yummy dark chocolate with chile Pequin, walnut honeycomb & chantilly cream❤️. Reminded us of the small, eclectic restaurants in Austin and Dallas!

The chef does a wonderful job getting local, fresh ingredients and making incredibly tasty items. It's a small menu, but everything on it is excellent.

This spot has an urban/chic/coastal vibe that is sophisticated yet cozy. Only stopped in for Social Hour, but really enjoyed our cocktails and the shrimp and crab cake - one item among several appealing small plates. Very friendly staff. Would certainly consider returning for dinner.

Moved here a few months ago and have been making the rounds at the local places with somewhat less than enthusiasm. Went for dinner Sat. night, no reservations, got a table for two. Marsha, our waitress was phenomenal- knowledgeable, attentive, very sweet. Best service yet in Rockport. The food was also amazing. Started off with the crab cakes - these... More

Went with some friends who wanted to try the restaurant. My wife and I had been before and weren't impressed then, but our friends said that they thought the place was good so.. We went. Service was unbelievably slow even though the restaurant had 4 tables besides ours to wait on. The food took a long time to be prepared... More
