The owner of the motel we stayed at recommended the Fish Shack, and it was a great recommendation. The facility is new, but has some great views of the harbor, and has a fairly wide menu selection. We went with the lobster, and being novices we appreciated the waitress and her attention to helping us figure out a lobster. The... More

We have enjoyed may great meals at The Fish Shack. Love the lobster roll, just lobster with the mayo on the side. All sweet meat. Reasonable prices and great views as well. Located right in Dock Square so a quick walk down Bearskin Neck is always enjoyed after dinner or lunch.

We dined next to the window which is right on the water with a beautiful view. The atmosphere inside the restaurant is okay - very plain, however, the view and food more than make up for it. The massive two pound lobster was only $25 and came with two sides. My wife had the 9 oz Haddock with great cole... More

My friend and I each had 2 pounders with a dinner salad, slaw and fries. We also shared a bottle of Sauv Blanc and it was very reasonably priced. The meal was perfect and the lobster was sweet and delectable. I do however think its pretty difficult to ruin a lobster fresh from the sea. Our waitress was charming and... More

The view of the break wall is ok but not breath taking, fact is it is a tad on the ugly side. Fortunately you don't eat the view! There are other places close by with much nicer views just down the street. The evening we were there it was packed the waitstaff here is a little older and you could... More

There was a 20 min wait at 7pm. However, the view was nice. We were there at sunset and got to watch it over our table. Food was good.

This is our 3rd year in a row visiting Rockport and dining here, and it's been consistently wonderful! Like the atmosphere, the food is really great, the waitstaff is wonderful as well, a special shout-out to Amanda! She was helpful, courteous, attentive, and she knows not to bring the check until the very end of the meal, unlike some places,... More

Purchased clam chowder to go and was very disappointed with the quality of the product. The chowder was VERY thick (the spoon stood-up in the heavy mixture), there was a noticeable lack of clams and their was little in the way of taste. Too many places with good chowder to ever try the Fish Shack's again!
