Small portions and not as well prepared as other seafood restaurants we tried in the area. It also took a very long time for take out. I would not return.

Really delicious home made food. Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Very friendly service. Smal, cozy place right across the street from beaches and short walk to the park. Have never had a bad meal or experience. Must check days and hours though.

The first night she got the fried shrimp with onion rings and cole slaw. All three items were excellent. The... More

Nate's is about the only cafe serving breakfast in town in October. It's quite small, serves good food, and reasonably priced. I'd go again.

As one of the few places open during the off-season (and only open on the weekend), it was very busy for Sunday breakfast, frequented by lots of locals and their friends. I had an enormous omelet with fruit on the side, and it was all good.

Not very roomy, but family owned, friendly service and food good. We had several seafood dinners here and they were very good.

My husband uses a mobility scooter, so we were unable to eat inside at Nate's, but that was a good thing. Otherwise, we may not have experienced eating our take-out meal picnic-style on a bench overlooking the beach and the ocean across the street from Nate's. The food was good--fried oysters and shrimp, French fries, etc., but the experience was... More

Locals eat here, the Rockport police were at the next table. Portions were generous and the price was quite good.
