Absolutely love the Red Skiff and eat there every time I go to Rockport to see family. Highly recommend the crab cake eggs Benedict. Also great for kids too.

Ok I admit I'm no coffee hound and think the world discriminates against orange juice drinkers but after the third attempt at a drink that resembled a full bodied glass of juice it looks like the juice comes out of a coke machine and mixes syrup with water. When serving a good breakfast there is no compromise for a proper... More

We had breakfast here before we left town. It was crowded and we had to eat at the bar but it didn't matter once we got our breakfasts. Everything was tasty, especially the rye toast! The coffee was good and hot, the service was friendly and quick, and the food was very very good for starting off our day.

I took my friend to Rockport to celebrate her birthday early and we stopped here for breakfast after I had bookmarked it on Yelp. It took about 10 minutes for us to be seated as it was packed when we arrived. We sat at the bar and got to see all the hustle and bustle of the cooks while they... More

We've always loved the Red Skiff Restaurant, but the new ownership has taken it to a whole new level, maintaining that quaint "local" feel, but amping up the taste and cleanliness of the seating area and kitchen. The food is some of our favorite in the area! Super tasty smoked salmon eggs Benedict special and great fish and chips (real... More

If there were, The Red Skiff would receive all 10. What an amazing eatery with the most incredible staff. Come hungry because their servings are more than generous and the food tastes superb. Breakfast all day as well as the usual lunch and dinner fair. The Red Skiff is a small dine in restaurant that is quaint to the nth... More

The Hash is a must have, all homemade. Everything they serve is all homemade, all fresh ingredients. The food is excellent as well as the service. We highly recommend this place.

It's rare when you go to a restaurant and ask for something not on the menu and the say "well of course you can have that". So, my wife ordered Sikes Salmon with Cream Cheese on Bagel. Voila! It was perfect. I had the Eggs Benedict that came out perfect with real hollandaise sauce. A lot of restaurant's use a... More

Recommended by local residents, Red Skiff had a great breakfast. Enjoyed the hash and the Anadama bread. Friendly service, reasonable prices for a tourist area.
