Great food and atmosphere

Shepherd's Pie was a great find in Rockport. Rather than eating at Natalie's in Camden, we were told to eat here. Glad we did. Great homey atmosphere and food was delightful. Great contemporary food preparation. Really enjoyed our seafood dishes.

Your taste buds will enjoy a great experience. The meal was delicious from beginning to end. We started with a special app for the evening that started off the meal with a bang, potato confit. It was an unexpected delight. My chicken was cooked to perfection with wonderful flavors melded together artfully. The pork chop my partner was melt in... More

This has become our favorite Rockport restaurant and one of our best experiences in Maine. A few reviewers have complained about "spicy" food, but our view is that their preparations are not typical of the often-bland taste preferences of New England and the Midwest. So if "piquant" is not in your dining vocabulary, you might be disappointed here. However, for... More

I used to love it here but since they removed their delicious fish and chips everything on here is just incredibly spicy. I mean like a 9 or 10 hot. The red pepper dip inedible and the side dishes too. Great cocktails and atmosphere bit please lighten up on the scorch factor.

We ended up at Shepherd's Pie because this was the only restaurant open on a Sunday in January (my birthday). Although our seat in the window was drafty and cold, the overall atmosphere was pleasant. Great bar! We asked for a sample of a beer on tap and waited almost 20 minutes before it finally arrived... no explanation, but a... More

I'll start by saying that the food was good but not great. It was way too salty for everyone at the table. My medium burger was made of good quality meat but too thick, charred on the outside and rare on the inside. With the bun I couldn't even fit it in my mouth (and I have a big mouth).... More

I'm a big fan of all of chef Brian Hill's restaurants which include Francine and Seabright, both in Camden, and Rockport's Shepherd's Pie. On this particular Monday evening my husband and I were exhausted and debating what to do for dinner. Shepherd's Pie seemed like a good option and we were able to sneak in and grab seats the bar...

I have eaten here so many times and never had a complaint. Our waiter got the drink order wrong, it sat on the table without him checking back in when I sent it back and was concerned maybe I would like a glass of wine seeing he had waited so long and dinner should be showing up soon. He was... More

I really had high hopes when I stepped into the restaurant since it's located inside a good looking old building, but was greatly disappointed by their way overcooked and funny taste burger. I suspect there's something wrong with the meat - mostly likely not entirely beef. In addition to the food itself, the service was pretty poor - I had... More
