We stopped in for breakfast, we usually eat in our RV but had risen early and went for a walk before anyone was up and stopped at Nates --they made us a beautiful 3 egg, and 3 egg white omelet with feta cheese and spinach. It was beautifully prepared and tasted so fresh! We will be back to Nate's next... More

Small, but charming. Breakfast good - omelet fluffy. Bacon particularly good. Service great! We enjoyed it and would go back.

This was the last place we tried fried clams at. We toured the north shore and ate at the most popular places. Nates clams were among the best! Small, sweet and delicious! After having some other dissapointing clams In rockport someone recommended us trying Nates. Said they were the best in rockport. I am so glad we did, because they... More

While the place does not have many tables the food is OUTSTANDING.. I ALWAYS order what I want and then eat half to keep the weight off. Could not do it with this breakfast. Almost licked the plate!!!!

Busy day at Front Beach and we had the best lunch. Sat in the cozy corner and started with the special green iced tea, lemonade and mocha splash. Friendly waitress and bus girl took good care of us. We had a variety of food and all was good; burgers, chicken and whole belly clams. Loved the atmosphere and the location... More

Nate's was a short walk from our hotel. Opening at 7:30, they had some great choices like almond cinnamon French toast. The cooking was very good, and the service was terrific. Highly recommended!

I was lucky enough to have stayed across the street at Captains Bounty and read about Nates through a review of our motel. Thank you to that reviewer because Nates was amazing. This "hole in the wall" exceeded my expectations and then some... Nates only holds roughly 20 guests but we had no problem getting a seat on a Saturday... More

Love this little seaside restaurant in rockport. The food is fresh and delicious, everytime. The service is friendly. And the view is amazing! Try the California benedict and pancakes! And for lunch the lobster BLT wrap is out of this world delicious! They also had an almond crusted french toast that was the best french toast I've ever had. Can't... More

Driving around the Cape Ann coast looking for a 'locals' place for breakfast we almost drove past this place. Nate's only seats 20 and we could almost put it in the trunk of our car. Clean and cozy, we got the last two seats. My wife had eggs Benedict with Greek sausage and feta cheese. I had their barnyard special... More
