It is not a restaurant. It is small and simple, nothing fancy--it's a shack. You step in, make your order, go to the open back porch and wait for a few minutes. While your very short waiting time you can have delicious clam chowder, breathe in that fresh and salty ocean air and listen to seagulls (have a sweater or... More

I loved my Lobster scampi, flavorful and lots of lobster. Hubby was not so thrilled with baked casserole (not enough and a little bland); daughter who hates seafood enjoyed the chicken parmesan - very tasty! Service was friendly, but a little slow (very busy night), views of the bay were outstanding.

We had lunch on September 8, 2014: two lobsters, a bowl of clam chowder and 6 oysters on the half-shell. I'm writing this review to confirm what so many have said before me. The service was friendly and quick. The food was hot and delicious. The price is right. We sat on the shady side of the back porch. We... More

This tiny lobster shack serves the very best lobster in the world. Its prepared in salt water so there's no loss of flavor in the cooking. You can also get delicious sweet stuffed clams, clam chowder, shrimp cocktail and other delicious offerings. The thing I would skip here is the fishcake. I was surprised that it was dry and tasteless,... More

Great meal and great fun. Good food at a reasonable price. We had lobsters, lobster rolls and clam chowder. Not a typical restaurant as there is not wait staff. Go up order your food and take it out back to chow down

we ate dinner here the one day we were in Rockport and had good and fresh fried seafood that we were looking forward to. the service was prompt and the server was very friendly, efficient and helpful. Moore's lived up to it's reputation as the #1 place to eat. highly recommend it.

When entering in this lobster shack, you will see the freshness of your seafood can't get any better than this. For all lobsters and crabs, you can literally hand pick your meal out of the tanks where the lobsters & crabs are swimming around. If you do have them cook up your lobster on the spot, there is a small... More

This is a great place for a no frill lobster meal. The lobster and lobster rolls are fresh and tasty. The smoked salmon was excellent. You pickup your meal and walk outside to eat on the deck on picnic benches. On the way, you grab your own paper towels. It is a great place to grab a quick lunch. The... More

While staying on Bearskin Neck, this is a great place for lobster---& butter. Grab a couple of these treats & sit out back at picnic tables. Or bring them out to the rocks. Bring paper towels & prepare to get messy. But you'll be wearing a smile along with that butter. Fun place & great people. Very reasonable prices.

I've been to this restaurant with my family during a short visit to Rockport. the place is very nice, with an amazing view on the ocean. Service is fast and everybody there is very kind! We ordered some fish cakes for starter and we enjoyed so much. But the lobster rolls were really fantastic, one of the best we've never... More
