Great spot to stop and get a hotdog with whatever kind of topping you want on it. We love to walk Bearskin Neck with our dog, so we can order and then sit outside with him. They also have a fantastic lobster roll. One of the best on Cape Ann.

What's a cool little place on "the neck"! Not a big place but great character and a must try if you are in Rockport. Great hot dogs (dress your own or pick from cool options on the menu) and fried clams.

I wanted to try this location, but as I was arriving, the owner / operator was leaving after serving 6 people, and was going to be away for 'about 30 minutes'. Not going to wait that long for a hot dog!

seafood. Great combination. And the clam chowder was one of the best I ever had. Not a five because it's small and a wait even after you order. Two people in front of me (they were friends)--one ordered mac and cheese and the other a plain dog. Mac and cheese took 20 min+ and the dog another 10 min. Seemed... More

Even if you didn't know you loved fried clams, get them. Watch them being made right in front of you. Eat them while they are hot. Wash them down with some local beer or cool white wine. You will dream about them because they are THAT good.

Loved this place, really small but very functional, well priced, family of four for under $40 and we got more expensive fried seafood dinners. I went back for a dog and it was tops.

For $16.50 you get a lobster roll, french fries and cole slaw. Since they were all very good it was a good lunch and the view was pretty good also. The chowder was ok and next time we will try the hot dogs.

The key to success in the restaurant is find your niche and stick with it. The hot dogs are wonderful and prepared several different ways. Try the golden retriever or the boston terrier. Awesome baked beans

Stopped at Rockport for a couple of hours to walk and take in a nice harbor view. Wanted lunch but not an involved sit down meal. You walk in and place your order and walk out with a tray with your food. We found a nice park bench in the shade. The dogs are good and others have said the... More

The kids working the place we're very nice, but the recommendation from a local about how great were the different hot dogs was overstated. My lobster roll was fine. I wouldn't return but I wouldn't dissuade folks from having there own experience,
