Gem in Rockport

We cannot say enough good things about Red Skiff. Great breakfast! If you order the pancakes get the real maple syrup....it's worth the extra money.

Gave this place another shot because of all the good reviews it's received. I went for lunch, and ordered the lobster roll with fries. It was good. The lobster was a little soggy, like it had been mixed with the mayo hours in advance or something. The fries were great! Overall, it was a good meal, but there's ugh better... More

My husband and I stopped here for a quick breakfast while in Rockport. I got a veggie omelet with wheat toast while my husband got eggs, bacon, coffee and blueberry pancakes. All were great and fair priced with a very friendly wait staff; we would definitely return if in the area again.

We stopped in for breakfast early and were glad we did. The place is small (cozy) and it fills up fast. Our breakfast was good, price mid-range and the coffee was excellent. We would have loved to try one of the fresh fried muffins but we were stuffed. Get there early or prepare to stand and wait for a table... More

Always stop by to do take-out breakfast. Everything is made-to-order fresh and done quickly. Can't think of a better place for breakfast.

This restaurant goes all out on it's breakfast! By far the best place to eat but so small that it seats very few at a time....get there early if you are in town....it is worth the wait if you are in line !!

We've been eating here twice a day...breakfast and lunch. The prices are great. The food simple, tasty and good. The fried clams were sweet and tender. The Rueben sandwich and the Pastrami Rachel were amazing. Everything we've had here has been great. The place is small. The staff fun and friendly!

This place sits downtown rockport and is perfect for breakfast. Small, friendly and welcoming and the food is delicious. Definitely recommend this when staying in Rockport. They open at 6 am which was perfect when having an early tour or trip scheduled. The best thing about it besidea the great food was the local touch.
