What a wonderful place for breakfast I was worried that the food would've marginal because it is "no frills" and the prices were so very low. But everything was wonderful Incredible breakfast The platter with pancakes, bacon eggs and potatoes was huge and delicious The side of corned beef hash was excellent and also enormous And the huge homemade blueberry...

Typically I would come here for breakfast but don't be surprised to find a crowd at the door. For those who have never been here before, the restaurant is very small, with only a few tables and a counter for guests. Today we dropped by during lunch and although my meal was decent, the tuna had a little too much... More

This restaurant is TINY, but so fun. Three neighborhood kids rode in on their scooters while we were there and had breakfast at the counter. I heard the waitress ask them why their grandfather didn't come down for breakfast too. That's the kind of place it is. The food was good, hearty, not fancy. This is not a boutique restaurant...it...

All the locals seem to like it. Friendly service but get there early if you want a table. Coffee is very strong. If you order a muffin, have an appetite, they are huge.

We had a cup of chowder for lunch - thick, creamy, with lots of clams. We also enjoyed a grilled chicken sandwich, which was juicy and tender. The service was fast and our waitress was very accommodating when we had a couple of requests.

We traveled 8 hrs to get there to have their delicious Fish n fries with fishcakes on the side. Their coleslaw is awesome as well. They cook the fish the way my Mother used to do with lite batter and more delicious tasting fish to eat. You know you are eating fish and not just some thick batter.. Brought back... More

We had breakfast here here more than once during a recent stay in Rockport. The place is small and totally cozy (be advised--no restrooms) and our meals were excellent. Try the Anadama bread with your perfectly cooked omelet---it's a local favorite. The wait staff is friendly and efficient and the coffee is great. The chocolate chip pancakes are perfect, too!...

What a great little spot. As we were leaving Bearskin Neck, friends of our's suggested we stop in for lunch. What a treat! My husband and I had the scrumptious fried clams...so tender and a cup of chowder. Our friends were equally pleased with their fried seafood platter. I will definitely be back next time we are in Rockport!!!
