The food is always good; I love the scallops, but I've never been disappointed with anything I've ordered. Service is friendly, and the views are great. It's nothing fancy, but down home good food and prices.

My husband and I live in Rockport and we eat at this restaurant occasionally. The tourist traffic is intense especially with the new music hall open close by. The food is very good. My husband loves the crab cakes. I always enjoy whatever I order though I stay away from the fried options. I love their squash! The staff works... More

They were great in accommodating my family of 11...which included 4 children. It was definitely a nicer place with great views. The food was amazing too. Would definitely go back!

After being seated it was 20 minutes - count 'em, 20 - before we saw our waitress. Fortunately we waited only another 20 minutes for our food. That's when I learned that our waitress got my order wrong. . My fish was done ok, but the accompanying corn was badly overcooked. My wife's lobster roll was small considering the high... More

Our waitress Molly is top notch! Great service with a smile! The view is also spectacular and the restaurant is clean. The honey n hot chicken appetizer was very good quality and tasty. Pastrami sandwich, French fries and the rolls with cornbread delish! However being in Rockport I was very disappointed in the seafood. The calamari was rubbery and the... More

We stayed two nights in Rockport, and chose to eat here our second evening after reading the menus of a few restaurants in the town. Service was good, our order was taken quickly and drinks brought within a few minutes. My husband ordered the crab casserole with fries, both of which he said were very good. I ordered the fish...

Bracketts Oceanview Restaurant is located right downtown Rockport with a beautiful view of the ocean. The menu is diversified. The spinach salad with the grilled shrimp is a good choice for lunch - light and fresh. The restaurant's decor is cheerful and bright, and very clean. Clam chowder had plenty of clams and freshly made. Friendly hostess and server.

After exploring Rockport we somehow found this restaurant and it was also recommended by some locals for their ocean view. We did receive a window table and had a great view. Ordered clam chowder, baked haddock and fish cake dinner. The lobster casserole and fish cakes were super. Service was excellent. Our nice waitress even went back to the kitchen... More

Dined here for the first time this evening. The sun was setting and the view was spectacular. The food however left a lot to be desired. We ordered a spinach salad to share. The very large salad arrived on one plate and we were not given salad plates in order to share salad. We eventually got plates and as soon... More
