What had the ceviches, shrimp toast, and salmon lox. The ceviches was fresh but a little orangier than I'm used to. The shrimp toast had plenty of shrimp and lots of avocado. The lox were deemed very good by my husband. We also had the fries. A great way to replenish salt. Unfortunately no diet coke. :/

We had a very unfortunate experience here this evening. Our friends ordered the scallops with pureed cauliflower. The puree was cold, and the scallops under-cooked. Our hanger steak was tough and bad-tasting. The green salad w/shaved vegetables was too small to justify the $10 cost. Finally, the bread for which they charged us was over-priced Wonder Bread. Yuch! To the... More

My wife picked this place for dinner due to its magnificent view of the cove at Rockport. I suppose the food was good but it was a little too rich for my taste and sparse for the cost. We both had seared scallops with creamed cauliflower adorned with wilted greens. Well the greens were truly wilted and the scallops too... More

We sat outside in the upstairs bar and enjoyed early evening cocktails looking out over splendid views of Rockport. We planned on eating here on our last night in the area to find it is closed on a Tuesday ! Mega disappointment as we did not expect to find anywhere closed on a Tuesday night particularly at the height of... More

Very good service. Great lobster and steamers. Beer was a little warm but not to bad we will come back. Bloody Mary was good. All were very pleasant here. Love the view. Downstairs was just as pretty.

First time we ate here even as we had walked by it several times in our various visits to Rockport. It was worth it. Location is just gorgeous and the food fresh and tasty. Menu is limited so we had mussels and clams. Both very tasty, though clams were somewhat sandy.

We returned to the scenic harborside deck at the 7th Wave, and were shocked by the changes in the menu. The restaurant has pared back its offerings to the point where there are appetizers and little else. We tried steamers (fine), mussels (bland), and salmon lox--good portion, but freshness in question. Few entrees were offered, and of those, they were... More

I have been bringing groups of friends, ranging from 6-20, here since shortly after the eatery first opened. The view from the water facing covered deck is great! However, this past Saturday's visit was very disappointing. The new management (which I was not told of when making a reservation) has revamped the menu to all apps & small plates. Nothing... More

We sat inside on the evening we ate there as it was a bit windy for the upper outside deck but folks were there as the view is primo. We had a great view of the water from inside. I had the oysters which were tiny and tasty just like I like them. Very relaxing atmosphere.
