Delicious food-- haddock, paella both great--and one of the best creme brûlées we've ever had. Waitress friendly and efficient, casual warm atmosphere, nice wines by the glass. And not expensive for the quality of food. Gluten free menu available too. We will be back!

We visited Passports for a late lunch after a long morning of antiquing. I was desperate for a martini, but the bar serves only wine an beer. Ok, we ordered a bottle of Cotes due Rhone, which was very tasty. A nice popover was presented and it was very good. Both my wife and I has fish and chips. The... More

We went here because this restaurant was highly rated by Trip Advisor. Then we called some friends who lived in the area and invited them to join us, and they told us it was one of THEIR favorites already. The wine selection included some very nice selections at reasonable prices. We all chose entrees from a list of specials up... More

This restaurant already has a number of 5 star reviews and I just wanted to be sure and add mine! We came upon this place after just wandering town, saw good reviews, so ate here. Wow, wow, wow! So glad we did. It's quaint, friendly and 100% delicious! Not a huge place but lots of atmosphere. Wait staff were attentive... More

We were visiting an art show and looked for a place for supper. Once again Trip Advisor came through its a wonderful discovery. Charming bistro on Main Street a couple of blocks from the water. You will not find a better Oyster po'boy - lightly battered, dozen of oysters, tasty sauce on a fresh large roll. The mango Atlantic salmon... More

Any restaurant that gives me a warm popover and butter makes me an instant friend. But I am getting ahead of myself. We drove an hour on a Sunday morning to have lunch at Passports because of the TripAdvisor reviews. We are glad we did. The wait staff could not have been friendlier, but in a refreshingly down to earth,... More

Good restaurant to dive into American culture as there are nearly no tourists. Got the recommendation from a German female we met accidently on our walk around Rockport.

Dinner started with warm, popover-style "roll" that tasted just-made-on-site. I had my eye on the beef Sherrie entree and the waitress called my attention to the fact that they offered an appetizer-size portion. I happily ordered the short rib appetizer and haddock fish tacos for Saturday night dinner. The Asian-style short rib was true to its name with a perfectly... More

The flavors are interesting and thoughtful, easy to love. chicken with apples, leek and roquefort....pan fried haddock, mashed potatoes,goat cheese, pear and walnut salad...... portions were generous.

Six of us went to this place on a Tuesday night for dinner. We did make a reservation but it was not necessary at this time of year. However, there were a lot of folks in the restaurant, so I would recommend reservations during the busy season. The hot, fresh popover was a real treat and something I have not... More
