Great food--too noisy

We had another great dinner in a packed restaurant that is far too noisy for a relaxing meal. The food, as always, was good but the sound level made it impossible for our table to hear one another.

As a local resident I visited Shepherd's Pie, happy to finally have a dinner restaurant (after 16 years living here) in Rockport. My friend and I ordered a glass of wine and I explained to the wait staff that I have a seafood allergy. The owner told the waitress to tell me I was not welcome in the restaurant because... More

This restaurant bills itself as a pub, but it clearly wants to be more --- and it does, in that the dinner entrees are very elegant, and "fancy", not to mention quite pricey. We were there for my husband's birthday dinner, so we weren't too concerned about the costs -- however, the dish I ordered - scallops - while good,... More

Shepherds Pie was a pleasant surprise. We had great service and one of the tastiest meals we have had while visiting Mid Coast Maine for 2 weeks. Plus we didn't spend a fortune!! I had the Shepherds Pie which deserved having a restaurant named after it. My husband also enjoyed the PB&J Duck sandwich which sounds crazy but is an... More

We recently had an early dinner here on our first night of our holiday in the quaint and lovely harbor town of Rockport. The atmosphere is pleasant, being elegant yet casual. The bar was packed and it was obvious that the restaurant is a favorite of the locals. The menu is electric and varied. We all ordered the organic hamburger,... More

Last year I had the signature Sheperd's Pie which was great. This year I had the Grilled duck PB&J. Everyone raves about this dish. It was very good, just not quite up to the advanced billing. We always take the boat across the bay and walk up from the harbor. That lends to the excitement about the meal. It is... More

This is a "must eat" establishment when in Rockport. Food was sized and made appropriately for the price as were the drinks. Staff was friendly and responsive to requests. My only issue was the noise volume with the restaurant which is why I did not give it a 5. Several times I found myself yelling at my husband and/or the... More

This was suggested to me by a family friend for a first night eats while in Maine on family vacation, and the choice was perfect. It is walking distance from a cute AirBnB, and the food is superb, as is the atmosphere, and the waitstaff. All around excellent marks, and the food was delicious. Do stop in.

The restaurant was good but nothing special. My burger was good but average, my husband had the bbq local chicken but again just average. Very loud and noisy place but the service was friendly.

Had dinner here last week after passing it by while driving around the area. Hadn't heard of it otherwise. View of the harbor. Very trendy looking place. Tin ceiling, great bar, refurbished site. I had a special cocktail....their take on a Manhattan. Very nice. They also had a nice selection og draft beers....unusual. My wife just wanted some soup, so... More
