Had a nice dinner of baked haddock with veggies and a butter/Caper sauce. Service was a not slow but the food and atmosphere was good. Nice view of small harbor too.

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

My husband and I were in town for a few days and after reading the reviews and recommendations from locals, we stopped in for dinner our first night. We had clam chowder, lazy man’s lobster and lobster scampi. They were all delicious! We loved it so much we went back for whole lobsters our last night in town.

Even during the height of the season, our family has enjoyed evening meals at Roy Moore's fish shack every year! Fresh fish, Atlantic Cod Lobster, entree, appetizers and a very good selection of broiled and fried dinner plates. Plenty of options for the folks that don't enjoy seafood here too.Great steamers, casseroles and chicken dishes. Casual dining, bring the kids,... More

We were looking forward to a nice lunch during our day trip to Rockport. Unfortunately, we left disappointed. The Clam Chowder was bland. The fried shrimp and the lobster roll did not taste fresh. On top of all that, the service was painfully slow. I would recommend going elsewhere.

Great dinner with lots of options! Loved the baked fish, kids’ menu, and the fried stuff. All fresh and delicious. Plus service was efficient and pleasant. And you can’t beat the view! I plan to go back soon.

Service was good, food was good as well. There was a young lady, perhaps 19 years old or so, playing guitar with a case open for donations as we left. I'm sure she was somebody's daughter, but our meal would have been much more pleasant without her attempt at soulful singing. The view is beautiful.
