“They swim in the door”
Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

You know the lobster is fresh when the lobster boat mates bring in crates of lobster 1/2 mile from where we are sitting. Price is right and everything is great.

“Fresh Lobster and Seafood!”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

Rockport is a beautiful small town and there is a restaurant right by the water called Roy Moore's Seafood! We walked in and loved the fresh lobster tanks. The 2 pound lobster was $20 and lobster roll was $15! The kids enjoyed fresh clam chowder at $4.95 per bowl. You come in order by the kitchen and Roy the owner gets your food ready with his staff. After your order is complete you go thru the kitchen to the outside patio deck to eat your seafood. Again you walk thru the kitchen to leave and pay. Roy took a picture with my daughter and me as we were leaving the restaurant. Very friendly and nice restaurant!!!! We will come back to this restaurant again because of the service and amazing seafood!

“Freshest lobster on the planet, to be purchased whole or in a lobster roll”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Totally simple, all about lobster.You sit wherever you can on the deck or the dock, you buy your beverage from a machine for a dollar (they're not out to rip you off), and you enjoy lobster that is cooked very shortly after it has been caught...and is kept in tanks right there. The staff is friendly and this is a Cape Ann experience you shouldn't miss.

“You can watch the boat bring in the fresh catch of the day”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Great place to grab a lobster or shrimp lunch, lots of napkins and eat outside right on the waters. You will probably a fisherman bring in a fresh catch! Great prices & you can't beat the view!
