Crazy, rainy Saturday night in Rockport and half the town was without electricity. We found ourselves at the Fish Shack and after a moderate wait were seated at a large family sized table. The place was packed as everyone discovered many resto's were closed due to power outages. Anyhow, our dinners were very good, wife really enjoyed mussels marinara, i... More

The seafood was delicious. The haddock so fresh and flakey, the clams perfect melt in your mouth, not the least bit rubbery. The mozzarella sticks though are just like the frozen store bought kind, nothing special. But the seafood, top notch! Don't let the word shack fool you either, it is a regular restaurant!

I came here with my husband and our two sons. We all had some form of fried fish, and we all really enjoyed our meals. The fish was fresh and tasty, not greasy. The waitress was friendly and efficient. We came at sunset and enjoyed the beautiful ocean views. We will definitely return.

We ordered Haddock that was so fresh that it almost melted in our mouths. It came with two sides that were wonderful. The butternut squash was excellent. I'm sure there is always a wait to be seated, but ours was about 20 minutes. The cheesecake was also very good. Everything was hot and tasty.

Went for a late lunch with our 2 preschool age daughters. Waited about 20 minutes for a table. Once we sat we waited another couple of minutes for menus which were not supplied when seated. Although drinks arrived quickly (soda and juice), it was another wait to place our order. About 20 min later our appetizer arrived. Disappointing buffalo chicken,... More

This was our first visit to The Fish Shack, but we will be back. We asked at the hotel for a place to have lobster on our first night in Rockport and were directed to the Fish Shack. We were so pleased, we went again today. My wife got two lobsters and had her fill! She really liked them, although... More

Delicious ,very fresh seafood. Enjoyed clams, lobster, haddock.Picnic tables outside,on the ocean with a view of a fabulous sunset and full moon.Also enjoyed a small campfire after dark with S`Mores for all! We were a large multi-generational family group with 4 children between 6 & 12 years old. Reserve and eat dinner early. They run out of food later.

We went here on a rainy day. It was not busy but there were many servers sitting around and it took forever to get a person to take the order. We dine out a lot and travel frequently. I did not think this was a very good experience at a restaurant and thought the food was very pricey for the... More
