Tuesday night supper

The wings are great. The beer is cold. The downfall for this place is cigarette smoke. Rockport allows smoking and if this is an issue for you, don't go. If you don't mind, the place is good..... There is no 'smoking area' and they serve drinks, it is the Poor Mans Country Club after all.... I... read more

To be honest, we felt that there is limited nice inexpensive food places in the Rockport area. This was our second night and despite the not so special reviews we opted for this place. The service was good - prompt and a pleasant waitress. All serving staff appeared to be efficient and friendly to be fair. It is a large... More

I rented an outside table to view July 4 fireworks It was a great view, however, the table I held was $100.00 for up to 6 people and then you pay $15.00 per extra persons up to 10. Well, the table ended up being a picnic table which could only hold 6 adults comfortable and 8 with a squeeze. We... More

Service was a little slow and food was ok. Very little seafood considering we are on the coast. I had the shrimp poor boy and got 4 large shrimp and blah tarter sauce! Cole slaw was blah as well. My husband got the taco burger... A Hamburger on tortillas. Might come back for appetizers

First of all, this is the first time that I can honestly say I've been truly disappointed with dining out while on vacation at the beach. The decor was interesting but nice if you like sports bar type setups. Fair warning to anyone who lives in a locale that has outlawed smoking inside restaurants and other public places. If smoking...

The food is ok. The waitress we had was nice and attentive. This isn't a family friendly place. It's more like a bar than a grill and there is just way too much cigarette smoke. We will not be back.

The fish tacos were good. What my kids had was ok. This place is ok, but way too smokey. I will come back when there is NO smoking inside.

Laid back atmosphere with good cold shrimp!! I am always going to order fried pickles if they are on the menu but these were definitely not my favorite I've had but they are decent. Wait staff was nice and friendly! Good prices!
