After browsing Bearskin shops - and passing Roy Moore's Lobster shack - (a select your own fish shop) - we came to the top of the street where the sister sit-down AC resturant beckoned.

They served our favorite Sam Adams really cold - and had large menu, lots of variety and several daily specials. Husband said the haddock was the freshest he could remember and it was cooked just perfectly. The chowder was "damn good" - and we sat by the window with view onto the beaches and inlet. I had the two pound lobster - and picked it clean. The fries were down in fesh oil and were just right - brown enough without being too crisp. The wait staff was terrific with a personality and a bright smile.

Check out the painted mural of Bearskin strait - awesome. Clean restrooms, good AC.

We had an ocean view seat and were pleasantly surprised to find very reasonable prices for good food on the menu. Clam chowder was not one of the best - so we will not repeat that. Otherwise baked haddock and fish cake dinner was quite good and very inexpensive. It was a lovely meal and service was good.

Roy Moore's Fish Shack has actually 2 restaurants there, 1 is called just Roy Moore's & it's literally a fish shop with a few picnic tables in the back for awesome fresh off the boat seafood, you can pick your own lobsters if you want. We actually wanted fried shrimp so they sent us down the street to the Fish Shack. It had no outside seating but a decent view of the water after you look past the rocks walls. Our waitress was attentive & pleasant. We ordered a shrimp cocktail appetizer which came with about 18 small to med size shrimp very fresh & tasty. I ordered coconut shrimp, came with 8 large shrimps w/a light & tasty coating not greasy, my husband got the shrimp/haddock combo plates which had 10 shrimp & 7 decent sizes of haddock bites same type of light tasty batter non greasy. The combo plates are not on the menu you need to ask for it & they do have it same as shrimp cocktail they have it but you need to ask for it which is a little odd. It was all good & we both enjoyed our meals total was about $60 w/drinks.

We keep trying restaurants in Rockport and so far have found no remarkable restaurants. The wait staff was fine and did a good job. My husband had the baked haddock with crumbs and found it tasteless; fries were mediocre;slaw was good, tasty. I had the scallop roll which was mediocre at best. Scallops were tender with bland light breading.

you always here about great food, that the locals eat, and the restaurant is in the middle of no where or you can not find it, this is one of those great finds. The food is great and made to order with home made food and dessert and of course the lobster is out of this world the view and benches are great to sit and enjoy the sunset with a lobster roll, it is a byob so bring your own bottle of wine and enjoy great food, and people
