Shepherd's Pie has been our go-to-place for cozy evening dinners. Previously they were open every night, so there were no disappointing "oh its closed tonight" surprises, but eventually they fell to the same operating pressures as the other nearby restaurants and scaled back the schedule. BUT NOW, its open for lunch five days a week, so I gave it a... More

My wife and I came here based on friends recommendations as well as the reviews made my Trip Advisor participants. And they weren't wrong. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. There was an energy in the restaurant but everything felt intimate. Any place that has a dish for its name must be the item I order. So the I had... More

Since many restaurants in the Camden/Rockport area aren't open in early January, we feel very lucky to have happened upon Shepherd's Pie and to have been able to get a reservation at the last minute on a Friday night. Our meal was thoroughly enjoyable: friendly service in a lively & relaxed atmosphere, delicious food that included perfectly seared local scallops,... More

After driving to Rockport for a concert, we learned that we were there too early to enter the Opera House. While walking to the waterfront to wait, we passed an inviting establishment. We were given the option of being seated at a table or the bar and selected the latter, not expecting to order much. After starting with a local... More

Recently visited with a friend for cocktails and a bite. Since we are in the off season we did not have to deal with a full room and a long wait for our food (which can happen in the summer). After years of patronizing this restaurant I know what to order and they have always delivered consistently fine food. That... More

Very overpriced and overrated and service was mediocre at best! At most "high end" restaurants where you drop over $100 for 2 people, that's with one glass of wine and one beer, you usually get cloth napkins and not paper. Oh is warm food too much to ask for too, or ice cold water? Would be nice if you were... More

This morning I woke up with a head cold and decided it would be a nice idea to go out for some chicken noodle soup. My husband called a bunch of different places and finally we found that Shepard's Pie was serving it tonight for dinner! I was so happy, always a good go-to when you're not feeling well .... More

We ate a Monday evening meal here in late October. Our hotel had assisted us with a reservation which was ready exactly on schedule. We had two different fall-themed cocktails which were unique and well-crafted. We had two appetizers, the oysters and mussels. The oysters were adorned with a flavorful sauce that did not overpower the oyster. The mussels were... More

In talking over our first dinner here, My Love graciously suggested that he had ordered the wrong thing, that his disappointing dinner was his fault. But I really do think that a restaurant should be expected to turn out a wonderful rendition of their eponymous signature dish, in this case, Shepherd's Pie. The main problem was that the lamb presence... More
