Good food, great service, wonderful view.

This is Roy Moore Lobster Company's upscale restaurant. When we went to Roy's for dinner they were already closed, had a rope across the door & yelled out to us to go to the Fish Shack. We were seated almost immediately at a window table in an alcove overlooking the water. Our waiter was very... read more

We like the food very much. The lobster is very fresh. We had the large lobster special and it was a great value. The lobster mac and cheese is superb. The view is spectacular. Ask for a table by the window. The service is a bit slow but the food comes out pretty quickly. It gets busy; go early. If... More

Came for lunch our first day in Rockport and dinner our last night. Our lobster roll was so sweet and prepared with decent sized chunks with mayo on the side, just as we like it. Of course, it's only 4 oz. unlike Red's in Maine that gives you almost a pound in a roll but it was really excellent. We... More

This is the Roy Moore Lobster Company's restaurant, so you know the food is going to be good. The staff is always friendly and I've never had a bad meal here. Conveniently located in Dock Square, it's easy to get to. I highly recommend the Fish Shack Restaurant.

OK, not exceptional. My husband’s salmon was cooked perfectly and my swordfish was also cooked to perfection, although the swordfish steak was so thin, I probably could have looked through it. Our waitress was great and remembered all of our little changes to meal.

My wife and I arrived in Rockport on a Monday evening and by the time we got settled into our B&B it was a little after 8. It seemed that in most of Rockport this means restaurants are closed. The Fish Shack was open, so we thought we'd give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised to have a great... More

This is sort of like a large waterfront diner. Great view of Rockport Harbor, although sun in evening brings the shades down for a while. Plain, somewhat dated ambiance with paper place mats. Varied seafood menu, including such out of the routine items like fish cakes and crab cakes. No reservations, but our group of eight stopped earlier in the... More

took a stroll downtown last night and found this great little place for a meal. My naked seafood casserole was very filling with sides of corn on the cob and delicious green beans. Kathy loved the baked haddock and Livi devoured her hamburger. Saw some friends from Reading, Bob and Terri, sitting at another table who said they loved their... More

Hubby and I went twice for dinner while we were staying in town. We both had lobster scampi and it was amazing...came back the next night for more! Lots of lobster, very flavorful, pasta done right, fresh green beans and very filling. Lots of fried offerings on the menu and it all looked good. Beautiful view of the ocean from... More
