We went in for lunch. We ordered clam chowder , burgers and a chicken sandwich. The chowder looked good. Lots of clams. But it was barely warm. I did not complain but I am sure she would have warmed it. Sandwiches were delicious. Service a little slow because they were busy. They are a little overpriced so I am not... More

We had a nice little lunch here and this basic eatery was a warm respite from a cold and windy day. Nothing fancy, but a good, hearty New England lunch with great prices. Unlike some of the other reviews, we had excellent service with a super friendly waitress who got our food and drink to us quickly. A nice lunch... More

Took time for us to be recognized as waiting for a table then we were placed at a small table with low light and what seemed like it was a hallway. The menu we were given did not tell us what beverages were offered. The fish on the fish sandwich was way bigger than the bun. The bun became soggy... More

It was a Sunday night in late October in Rockport, so we didn't expect anything special. The Blue Lobster Grille met our expectations. Food was underwhelming at best - it seemed the ingredients (even the bread) were poor quality. Plates and plastic glasses were old and worn. The serving staff were genuinely friendly and helpful, which raised this review to... More

Not fancy but honest and well-prepared seafood; the wait staff is friendly but can be rushed. We come each year.

Brought here by an old friend who lives in Rockport, and it completely lived up to my expectations for quality seafood in this lovely little town on the state's north coast. Ambiance is rather unassuming, but the view of the inner harbor out the the picture windows is special, and the service is very welcoming and friendly. The food is... More

Had our first visit to Rockport in 20+ years. Was there this past Sunday. Excellent food, friendly staff and very quick service. Clean, great location and serves beer and wine as well.

The lobster blt was excellent (but not cheap, mine clocked in at $22!) But the wait staff was clearly understaffed for a Saturday afternoon and you could tell. The chowder was good and overall we had a great lunch but they need to add a bus boy or something!

...but get there early as it will be busy. Or after 11am and the crowds will have gone. Had a nice cooked breakfast, friendly server, cosy and compact cafe. Just like from the olden golden days. Loved it.
