This restaurant is nestled in a strip shopping mall and doesn't look like much from the outside but once you enter, you realize you've come someplace nice! The staff is super professional and it looks like a pricey establishment. The prices are very reasonable and...the food is delicious. We really wanted some good seafood and this place delivered.More

You’ll want to include this place on your list of places to visit in Rockport. This is an old school,do it the right way place for good seafood and drinks. It has a full bar and wine list. I had the shrimp Diane and was...not disappointed. A pre-meal cocktail, garden salad and entree with a glass of Pinot was $30. Very good meal and worth the walk from the local hotel. The place was packed and seemed to be locals. They have a happy hour menu with good drink specials. The dessert menu offers bread pudding, peach cobbler and carrot cake. I couldn’t indulge but many around me did. Looked delish and plentiful. You’ll enjoy the cordial service where they treat you like family.More

We had a good dinner at this restaurant during a recent visit to Rockport. The food was very good, and the service was competent and friendly. One of us had red snapper, and the other had shrimp, and both of us were pleased. The happy...hour margaritas were mediocre, but happy hour drinks are often mediocre. We would go back on a future trip to Rockport. It probably is a better place for adults than families with kid, though there were a few kids there, and they seemed to be doing fine.More

Absolutely wonderful food & dining experience. So thrilled we happened upon this restaurant. Beautiful atmosphere. Fine dining but we weren’t frowned upon in our shorts & t-shirts. Gari, our server, was top notch. She gave us great suggestions, together we created what I’d call a...perfect meal. We started with Gulf oysters on the half shell which were the best I’ve ever had; ceviche; and 1/2 lb of steamed gulf shrimp- all delectable. We then shared the Fish Rockefeller w/Red Snapper. Oh my goodness- yum. To end the meal we shared an authentic key lime pie - imported from Georgia and the last of our bottle of Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc. I’ve never written a review for a restaurant or much of any reviews to date but this was exceptional. Definitely visit Old Fulton Seafood Cafe & Deli!More

Behind a rather ordinary looking strip mall facade, there is an excellent restaurant. Great selection of fish and seafood and desserts, oh my ! Nice atmosphere - feels a bit like an old supper club - attentive staff, well-prepared food. A plus !

We went for dinner having scallops, lobster, and redfish. All seafood was tasty and cooked to perfection. Topped it off with home made in house carrot cake for dessert. Stephanie our waitress gave us top service!! Will definitely come back, and will bring friends next...time! We would highly recommend.More

We stopped in for lunch based on the very positive reviews, but were wondering if we were in the wrong place... Positives: Wonderful and welcoming greeting from the older man seating people! Excellent service with warm servers. Happy hour in the afternoon: $3.50 Salty Dog...cocktail Negatives: Kind of depressing dark atmosphere. Jambalaya was barely warm. Po Boy sandwich was very small with small pieces of fish. Not worth $15. Reuben sandwich was just ok. I am glad we didn't eat there for dinner, disappointing.More

We started with happy hour drinks that were very watered down. Our fish was dry and no flavor and very little sauce. We were disappointed with our meal. Service was good.

The gentleman who greeted us at the door was full of warmth and very pleasant. Our waitress, Gari, was very pleasant and attentive. She started us off with crab nachos as an appetizer. They were excellent. We ordered the special which was red snapper basket....Delicious doesn't describe how it and the white chocolate bread pudding tasted. Yes we will come back.More

You must go! We would not have probably stopped there without a recommendation from a local friend. Stephanie was wonderful and took care of us. Cocktails were really good and well priced. We had a Mexican martini, perfect not dirty or not too clean martini...and a salty dog were made to our liking! The crab cake was well worth every penny and my fried shrimp was fresh and the variety of sauces offered were fun to try. Stop by! The executive lounge will be our next stop if just cocktails and appetizers are needed. We are are still looking for the deli part of the restaurant! LolMore

Had a wonderful experience dining early on last Tuesday. We were seated with my service/support dog with no problem. Husband ordered Rockafeller Redfish which he scarfed, and I had Shrimp Scampi both of which were really good. Huge portion of Angel Hair Scampi half of...which was taking home to enjoy the next day. Margaritas were yummy. Our server Stephanie provided really great service. We are looking forward to our next visit at Old Fulton Seafood!More

We were going to go to a different place and saw the sign. We walk into a quiet friendly little restaurant. We had Stephine as our waitress. She was very friendly and helpful. We asked her about some of her favorites. She made some excellent...suggestions. The food came out fast, hot and fresh with a smile. We will most definitely be back for another visit soon.More

Food is delicious. Gari, our server, gave us 5-star service and hospitality. Bread pudding is amazing and the best I have ever eaten. We went there this trip because we remembered that it was our favorite on our last trip to Rockport. Don't be fooled...because it is tucked away in a strip center. Simply think of it as a hidden treasure.More

I did not see a specific gluten free menu. They do offer a variety of prepared foods. I suggest you phone them and check out your needs.
