If you want great fresh seafood a variety and lobsta is here, but no sides or extras.....no nonsense on an outdoor picnic table shared at peak times. Good to experience, friendly service. Great 1st experience with whole lobsta!!!!!

The quality of the lobster was the best we had on our trip to the Boston area. This is a small family place in Rockport. It was the best price $17.99 for a 1.25-1.5 lobster and the tastiest! I was not as impressed with the clam chowder but the clam appitizer was fabulous. .. again a wonderful price comparatively speaking.

My wife and I wanted to experience the Atlantic lobster feast and we were very pleased with the casual and fun atmosphere that this small establishment gave. The three gentlemen that served us were a hoot to talk to and they made you feel very comfortable at their establishment. Now to the lobster. It was simply delicious and a good... More

A literal hole in the wall place! We timed it right and missed the proverbial long lines but do yourself and others a favor by knowing what you want before going in. Of course it will probably be lobster but there are other choices. My wife had the lobster roll and I had the chowder and stuffed clans and we... More

Had a very good meal. My husband had a lobster and I shrimp scampi. Both very good with generous portions. I asked to have half of mine boxed for lunch the next day. Chatted with the friendly waitress and when she brought the check I asked for my box . She said oh no. She forgot I had asked for... More

Delicious lobsters and fresh oysters, at a reasonable price. A long line was handled efficiently and friendly. A sunny deck behind the shack was the nicest environment you can imagine to enjoy the seafood lunch.

The lobster tastes outstanding, the price is a steal (less than $15 for 1.5 lbs) and the staff and owner are amazing (Steve even gave me a free t-shirt). There is no reason to eat anywhere else (unless you don't like delicious lobster). I would pass on the clam chowder and eat a second lobster (as I did the next... More

Food was just average but good service. A lot of interesting shopping close by. Nice view. The weather was good in September.

The small unassuming storefront of Roy Moore's is a real slice of New England amongst the T-shirt and souvenir shops that line tourist-congested Bearskin Neck. It's all about the boiled lobster and lobster rolls at Roy's. Although they have limited, basic outdoor seating in back, this is the ideal place to grab your lobster to go. Ideal if you're staying...

This is a great local place, enjoyed by tourists and locals alike. Outdoor seating on their deck on the water on lovely Bearskin Neck in Rockport. The freshest lobster roll in town.

Thank Stephen K
