Friday afternoon delight

From Barnesville, Georgia, down South, so I am not the most experienced but this was the best lobster I have ever had. Perfect chowder first and then the lobster was the perfect temp and the fries were just the way I like 'em. Cool place...

Plan on dining at Roy Moore's ONLY if you like fresh lobster and other seafood delicacies that are literally right off the boat. The staff is fun to work with and admire as they perform their non-stop preparation of great food items. Enjoy the rustic nature of the "dining room" then purchase a couple of live lobstahs on your way... More

We had to eat a lobster dinner (steamed and roll) on our first day in Rockport and we were not disappointed. Service was good and the view was amazing. I agree with the other reviewers that the prices were reasonable for a tourist area.

Stopped in for lunch and had the lobster roll stuffed clams and chowder. So incredible and fresh. The best lunch I've had in s long time.

This is actually his restaurant just down the hill from the original shack, which is still there. We were the first customers of the 2015 season which may explain the lack of coordination. We had to wait too long for our food, my cutlery had food stuck to it, and the clam chowder was oniony, with chunks of raw celery... More

While we love to see a few sides like pre-made salads and maybe some rolls to cushion that lobster and butter, nobody makes a better boiled lobster than Ken Porter. He simply cooks them in filtered seawater. Bring your own beer and wine because they are still a BYOB place. Eat out back at the simple wooden tables and do... More

Roy Moores place is not terribly impressive from an ambiance point of view. It does have a number of tables along the windows that give a nice view of the old harbor but the rest of the place is old school. The food is fairly good, however. We had the boiled lobster platter and it was nicely done. The halibut... More

We ate at The Fish Shack (where the lobsters are supposed to come from Roy Moore's) and it was very good. But, now that we have been to "The" Roy Moore Lobster Company, the hole-in-the-wall on Bearskin Neck, we'll probably never go back. We got three lobster rolls, two to eat and the third because the first two were SO... More
