Enjoyed tasty lobster rolls and clam chowder. Kids loved foods here. I will definitely come back here next spring.

We stopped here for lunch. It's located on the water and offers a good view of the ocean. The waitress was efficient and friendly. I was able to have a whole lobster for $15 for lunch! The clam chowder was very good.

In our opinion The Causeway serves much better lobster and fish dishes for less. If you were to look at all my reviews, you'd see I'm not overly picky, but we were disappointed in our meal and with the waitress. We wouldn't return to this restaurant. Was it just an off night? Perhaps. Nice view! The Hot Lava Cake was... More

Nothing bad to say...it was OK. The place is like a diner not a formal restaurant. We arrived shortly before they closed but they were welcoming and quick to seat and serve us. We had chowder (very good), lobster linguini and fish & chips (both good.)

While we love Roy Moore's Lobster shack the best, this place is our second most favorite place to eat while in Rockport. Great service, food and prices.

The service was fine. The view was delightful. My wife had fried haddock sandwich and I had the fried scallops plate.m the food tasted delicious, but we both experienced major digestive problems as soon as we got home. Maybe it's just us. Who knows?

Rockport is a really quaint town. Not a foodie destination but good solid seafood. Apparently because it was a dry town for so long a restaurant culture has never really emerged. After a long day of touring we sought out a casual dinner within walking distance of our B&B. The Fish Shack certainly fit the bill. Sat right at the... More

Although this place can easily be seen as a tourist trap, the food is decent. During the summer this place is packed, but does provide a great view of the old Rockport Harbor. Additionally, this palce has a very casual dress code which is great for people coming off the beaches.

This restaurant was recommended, I think we could have done better else where. We had a 15 minute wait to be seated which was no big deal. Our waitress however was argumentative, long wait to take our order, long wait to get served and had to flag down the waitress to get our ticket. Lobster was good, clam chowder was... More

Recommended by our hotel. Ignore the decor, the service is great and the food excellent. The buffalo shrimp were the best thing we ate all holiday and the lazy lobster bake and the lobster roll were both excellent. Please note, this is a basic seafood restaurant; the menu isn't huge but everything is freshcand simply prepared. If you don't have... More
