We stoped by the Red Skiff during a visit to Rockport on a rainy day. While the Restaurant was small with only about a half a dozen tables, we were able to grab one immediately. This server was very friendly and immediately brought us some...More

We stopped in for brunch and I’m so glad we did. The food was delicious! You get a big portion. The prices are great. But all of that is almost eclipsed by their fantastic staff!
