Breakfast Fantastic

Food and service are outstanding. The breakfast Burrito was huge and incredible for the price. Friendly staff. The tables were a bit tight and there was no outside seating...but don;t let this stop you. This is a MUST!

Strolled into the Red Skiff while needing breakfast in Rockport, Mass. Very impressed with the hearty breakfast offerings. Cozy mix of locals and visitors. I'll return when in the area. Omelets are very good. Wait staff a good mix of welcoming, friendly and efficient. Sat at counter and enjoyed watching cooks speed through the preps. You can see the kitchen!... More

We love corned beef hash and it was quite good here! Over medium egg cooked perfectly. Western omelet very good. Staff very attentive and competent. Clean. Worth a visit!

Small restaurant where the locals eat so it crowded and noisy. But who cares when the food is so good, served quickly plus good and hot when it comes. The wait staff are cheerful and friendly and efficient. We went for breakfast and what a great way to start the day!

An extensive menu of the usual pancakes and eggs but also with great local items such as fish cakes and anadama bread. Good coffee and cups refilled before you ask. Nice mix of locals and tourists. I've been there before and it is also a very good place for fish dishes for lunch.

Perfect place for breakfast! Staff instantly acknowledged us and seemed engaged with their patrons. Food was fast and cooked perfectly. Locals were super friendly and helpful and you could tell have been going to this tiny place for years. That spoke volumes to us! We can't wait to go back on our next visit.

My wife and I moved to downtown Rockport last summer. We love the Red Skiff right in our neighborhood and walk there for breakfast frequently. Fabulous food, substantial servings, quick service and friendly staff. And we love the small diner atmosphere. We've tried other places but you can't beat the Red Skiff.

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.
