As it was ranked 1 on TripAdvisor we decided with our friends to have lunch there. We went to the Bearskin Neck place, we found out later that they also have a restaurant just before Bearskin Neck where you get full service (also a lot more expensive) The Roy Moore Lobster Co is extremely casual... read more

This is a must if you're in rockport. Eating in the rough, on the water. Skip everything else and just get lobster. It's fresh and delicious!

I hate to admit that we went here every day, for lobster, chowder, lobster rolls, oysters or clams. We couldnt stay away. the staff is hysterical and everyone has a great time. Lobster prices cant be beat and when you are standing there watching the lobsters being hauled in off the boats, you know it cant be fresher.

Very fresh and cheap lobsters! My folks enjoyed the lobsters so much that they think of it all the time. Do try the shrimps too! This could probably be an icon of Rockport!

The seafood here is amazing, the atmosphere is amazing, and the staff are super friendly. We ordered the fish cakes...and then another order when everyone ended up sharing!

If your looking for a sit down restaurant then you have picked the wrong place. However, if you are looking for the freshest best tasting Lobsta I've ever had, this would be the right place. You line up to place your order, once ordered, your food is ready, within minutes. Go walk out back where they have a small seating... More

If you love lobster in the rough, this is the place. Not fancy but Some of the best lobster rolls I have ever eaten. I've been coming here for over 35 years for the lobsters and lobster rolls. Never disappointed. The lobster rolls are jammed full of succulent lobster chunks. There is a dining area out back to relax and... More

A great little hole in the wall for excellent seafood. Friendly, funny and efficient staff having fun while they work. The owner is usually present with his humor too. Excellent lobster rolls and thick, delicious clam chowder. All reasonably priced too. Eat outside on their back deck and watch people use their various techniques cracking and eating lobster.

Having vacationed to Cape Ann for over 20 years, we decided to try Roy Moore based on their rating on trip advisor. The good: - The lobsters are freshly caught. - The restrooms (only toilets - no sinks) are very clean. This is a plus as Roy Moore is an "eat in the rough" establishment and Bearskin Neck being a...
