Near the end of a wonderful Saturday at Halibut Point and Rockport, my wife and I ate takeout from Nate's, and it was tasty on both counts. A clam plate for me; a lobster roll for my wife. We walked across the street and ate looking out over the beach and harbor.We recommend Nate's.

Hers nothing like service with a smile. Couple they with a good varied menu and good quality food and oh, add in a lovely view and it's set! A cute place perfect for breakfast (which is what I had) and open seven days a week.

Tiny diner in a beautiful setting – right across the road from Front Beach. I was delighted to eat my breakfast with a view of the sea. Our server was nice and friendly. I had one of the specials - almond crusted French toast with raspberries – absolutely delicious. The others had…..well I can’t remember because I was in my... More

They didn't open up early so we walked the beach until 7:30 am. Comfortable seating, friendly wait staff, changes to the offerings were no problem. Hubby had the veggie omelet and it was loaded with veggies. The Anadama Bread was a bit thin but still tasted good. I had the bagel/egg/tomato/spinach sandwich and it was good. Prices were in line...

Most places drop a few mayo-laden pieces of broken up lobster meat into a hotdog bun and call it a lobster roll. At Nates you can get a Lobster BLT which, as one might guess, is a generous portion of large pieces of lobster meat, bacon, lettuce, and tomato in a wrap. Order takeout ahead of time, and since parking... More

We had breakfast here 2 mornings over the very busy 4th of July weekend. They open at 7:30 a.m.and they fill up fast as it seats around 20 or so guests. The waitstaff were friendly and super efficient. Coffee was good. And they had a nice selection of breakfast options. Walking distance from all the shops and where we stayed.

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
