Meh. Other than being on the water, this restaurant was nothing special for us. Needs an update inside with old oak tables and uncomfortable chairs. All of our dishes were fine... but nothing great. Would try another option when returning to the area.

We found this place on line while we were staying in Rockport for the long weekend. It is a little out of the way but worth the effort. We thought the menu had enough choices to satisfy most hungry diners. It had appetizers, salads/soups and a good entree menu including seafood and meats. my wife had a cold lobster plate... More

I have eaten here numerous times and plan to return again. The restaurant is located at the edge of the harbor and the view is wonderful. The food is generally very good. One of my favorite dishes is the scallops though the seafood enchiladas are excellent as well. In terms of service, even when crowded, as happens often in the... More

GOOD food, and good service! My Mom had fried oysters, which she looks for everywhere, and she said they were VERY good. I had the Caesar Chicken Wrap because I'm on a diet, and it was delicious. I added onions and mushrooms to it, and it was so big and so full, I could only eat half. I had the... More

The view is fantastic. I'm not from new England but a big fan. And love the views in the fall. This restaurant has some great views of the water and small town. The food was alright, some of the items I ordered were great, some were just ok. Therefore I would say it depends on what you order. The clam... More

Nothing too special about this place, just a typical seafood restaurant. My husband and I came here for our 10 year anniversary dinner as it was suggested by some locals. As suspected the dinner menu was pretty much all seafood. I ended up getting the steak which was very good, but I wish they had more options for people who... More

Was staying in the area and a local recommended this restaurant for dinner. Actually came here the first night with a friend and the next day alone for lunch. The view is so interesting and ever changing and the Hot Spiced Rum - oh so good! Highly recommend!!!
