Food was delish! So were the drinks. Swizzles! Loved the atmosphere. Can't wait for the summer to go back.

At breakfast; Can't resist the fresh baked trays of muffins. We keep going back year after year. Dress warm It's small and you might have to wait outside for your table or counter stool but it's worth it. Every meal is great. Try the eggs and fishcake breakfast, I'm hooked! At lunch; It's the best of locally caught seafood and... More

Enjoy a nice lunch & a great clam roll. Chef welcomes you with a smile behind his busy grille, the staff is fast, friendly and keeps the place clean. Open year round, small, quaint & tasty. Great job!

We had friends here from Germany and went up to Rockport on New Years Eve day. Found this for lunch. Some of the Best Fish and Chips I have ever had. Not greasy but absolutely moist, delicious slaw in a typical New England shack atmosphere. We'll be back for sure.

This is a local breakfast establishment with great portions and service. The restaurant is very small and you will usually have to wait but not very long. Great breakfast with daily specials and a good lunch as well. Very tight quarters but there are a few seats at the counter if you are alone or possibly with 1 other.ome of... More

My husband and I had greatly enjoyed a lunch at The Red Skiff, back in the Spring. While showing family from the midwest around Rockport, we decided to introduce them to it as well. Although it was a fairly busy lunchtime, they found a place for the five of us (including a baby). Our lunches were uniformly delicious: fish cakes,... More

Everything was fried it seemed but the scallop roll was full if big tasty scallops and the fries weren't bad. My partners steak bang roll was okay although the cheese might have covered some of the bland taste. All in all a bit average.

This is a great place. Small but very efficient and busy. Breakfast was excellent and they have real maple syrup. We sat at the counter and our server was friendly as could be. Food was well prepared.

Stopped in for a quick lunch and was not disappointed. Cute, small restaurant with about 8 tables and some counter service. I had a clam roll and my wife had a reuben sandwich. Both were very filling and delicious. The waitstaff was friendly and fast. Got recharged for strolling through Bearsneck and the shops. Would start my day here again.
