This is a small mom & pop style restaurant in Rockport. Owned by a young couple. Reliable breakfast and lunch stop. Good coffee and delicious muffins. We always stop for breakfast when in the area.

Our family has dined at the Red Skiff for years for breakfast. It is now under new ownership...the quality and value has seriously dipped. Always like the quality comfort food. Pancakes were crepe like and lacked flavor. Would not return.

Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and truly enjoyed our breakfast. I'm basic with eggs over med, bacon, and the toast but you'd be surprised how often this request is not met - they delivered perfectly. My husband had french toast and said it was one of the best he had ever eaten. Charming restaurant, charming town!

After being seated at a table for 2, we were asked to move to another table so ours could be pushed with another to make a table for 4. We moved, but noticed a bit later another couple sitting there. The Red Skiff is small, crowded, not air conditioned, and offers no view. Breakfast was okay but nothing special. The... More

Every time we have eaten here, its been great. If you have to wait, they bring you a cup of coffee. The food is fresh, and often inventive. Try the challah French toast. Service is fast, servers are pleasant and knowledgeable. We try to visit every time we are in Rockport.

Arrived at 7.05 am. Line by 7:20. Breakfast was great with real homemade Corned Beef hash and Amadama Bread. Service was good despite limited space. Well worth a visit.

We only had breakfast here but it was very good. We ordered a standard breakfast of bacon and eggs which came with really good home fries. Service was good and we enjoyed what we ordered. We left with a loaf of homemade bread as well.

Stopped in here for breakfast. Very small! Very warm inside and it was only around 9am. Got food to go. Thankfully we didn't go to far as they forgot our drinks. Food normal breakfast food.

As a local and unwilling to drive to Gloucester on a weekend due to the horrific beach traffic, I really want to like this place. I recently had breakfast, only two tables occupied and it took over 20 minutes for scrambled eggs, which would be fine but the eggs and rest of breakfast was well below average. Scrambled eggs were... More
