At breakfast; Can't resist the fresh baked trays of muffins. We keep going back year after year. Dress warm It's small and you might have to wait outside for your table or counter stool but it's worth it. Every meal is great. Try the eggs and fishcake breakfast, I'm hooked!
At lunch; It's the best of locally caught seafood and steak sandwiches. There are lots of choices all over Cape Ann but the Red Skiff in downtown Rockport is my favorite. I saw $$ but that's ridiculous, they are the best and lowest cost place to chow down that I know of and that's saying something.

Enjoy a nice lunch & a great clam roll. Chef welcomes you with a smile behind his busy grille, the staff is fast, friendly and keeps the place clean. Open year round, small, quaint & tasty. Great job!

We had friends here from Germany and went up to Rockport on New Years Eve day. Found this for lunch. Some of the Best Fish and Chips I have ever had. Not greasy but absolutely moist, delicious slaw in a typical New England shack atmosphere. We'll be back for sure.

This is a local breakfast establishment with great portions and service. The restaurant is very small and you will usually have to wait but not very long. Great breakfast with daily specials and a good lunch as well. Very tight quarters but there are a few seats at the counter if you are alone or possibly with 1 other.ome of the locals consider this the best food around Highly reccomended

My husband and I had greatly enjoyed a lunch at The Red Skiff, back in the Spring. While showing family from the midwest around Rockport, we decided to introduce them to it as well. Although it was a fairly busy lunchtime, they found a place for the five of us (including a baby). Our lunches were uniformly delicious: fish cakes, pastrami Rachel, a halibut sandwich, and a clam roll. The service was efficient and friendly, even after the baby spilled a full drink all over the table. We'll definitely be coming back again.
