I had breakfast here and it was ok. It's your typical American breakfast. Nothing outstanding. Coffee was blah. Actually, everything was kind of blah. Didn't ever go back to try the lunch.

If you want a great breakfast or lunch with friendly service, look here. The menu is extensive and it's also great value for the quality and quantity.

Excellent food at reasonable prices; friendly service. Nice lunch and breakfast menus. Abundant servings. Fast service in spite of near full house each time we visited.

Stopped in for lunch with several friends and we were warmly greeted and promptly served. With two vegetarians and one who couldn't eat fried food we still had no problem ordering. The veggie burgers were tasty and substantial, the fried seafood fresh and not greasy and the turkey club "just right". Grape nut pudding and a grilled chocolate chip muffin... More

Small, but worth the wait. Very good food, and the staff very nice, makes you feel welcomed. Grandson approved for his chocolatechip pancake!

Stopped in for burgers and it was good. Generous size, waitstaff is terrific. Definitely a local joint, they know people by name. Very small inside but waitresses somehow manage to move around the tables with ease. Will come again to try their breakfast, maybe the cranberry pancakes. Highly recommend.

this place is small - maybe 30 seats. in the summer, especially on weekends, i can imagine a long wait to get in but on a rainy morning we only had to wait about 10 minutes. i had the captain's breakfast and my eggs were cooked perfectly to order. my partner had the tomato and cheese omelet and declared it...

The Red Skiff is a top breakfast and lunch choice for Rockport locals, and is busy until closing time at 3:00 PM all year round. The Eggs Benedict specials are a favorite and the fried seafood plates are generous and expertly prepared. Freshness of catch is an obvious plus. If you want breakfast, show up by noon! Nobody gets served... More
