It was the number one restaurant whenever it was last still open, the last review was back in 2013. Not sure how many visitors to rockport came to try them out only to be disappointed. A different review site listed them as closed months ago. Had to confirm for myself, I was greeted by a faded and vague sign "coming... More

What a wonderful little place to sit and eat, We visited on a cold and windy November day but the welcome we received warmed us up. We both had the Italian wedding soup which was excellent and wrap which was delicious. Will definitely visit this terrific place again

We were pleasantly surprised with this tiny shop. Freshly made subs, wraps and paninis of all varieties. They have a different soup of the day. Check out their menu online to find the daily soup. Great for a picnic or to bring to the beach. They have a few stools as well.

My girlfriend and I were walking around Rockport looking for a place to eat in December, crazy I know. Nothing was opened but luckily we stumbled into Ally's which was! Steve, the owner, greeted us and went over the menu. I don't quite remember the names of the sandwiches we got, but they were absolutely delicious. My girlfriend got a... More

While visiting family on this thanksgiving weekend , couldn't stay away from my favorite place to eat. Thought I'd try the Fetch It ( owner is a dog lover ) and loved it ! The combination is very unique, I would never think to put these ingredients together. Chicken , Braeburn apples, fig jam, and manchego cheese on a toasty... More

All the raves Ally's eatery has gotten are well deserved. We had a salad, soup and a sandwich. Everything is totally fresh and made right there, including the salad dressing. They do really interesting combinations like adding jam to a brie and ham sandwich. It is a shame they don't have a sit down restaurant, because this is the best... More

Based on all the TA reviews we decided to have lunch in Ally's on a recent trip to Rockport. We were surprised when we walked in that it is essentially a take-out joint with 6 counter stools and a very small and tight interior. However the outstanding split pea soup (one of the best I've tasted) and an excellent panini... More

If you're looking for a unique food experience (in a good way) you've come to the right place. Ally's Eatery is the best! My fiancé has a gluten intolerance and they can "cater" to that when it comes to fresh sandwiches/panini/wrap. I had the 1620...thanksgiving dinner everyday. She had the Shiny Happy, turkey with apple and honey mustard. One word:... More

This is the best six-seat eatery you will ever visit, in beautiful Rockport. The food is freshly made, with bread baked that morning on "The Island." The soups are excellent. The paninis, wraps, and sandwiches are inventive and tasty. If the seats are full, you can take out and enjoy your meal by the harbor. Unlike many Rockport restaurants, Ally's... More
