Visited on the Saturday night: friendly service, this place was full of locals, decent food (but nothing to write home about), but a killer view! Visit just for that.

One of our favorite restaurants for lunch while strolling along Bearskin Neck. Enjoyed the best fried shrimp and service is excellent. Just a nice calm atmosphere.

We came for dinner Columbus weekend. It was a grey day/evening outside. And inside was friendly and welcoming. The large windows in the back gave us views of the sea. Our waitress was both friendly and very skillful. We both enjoyed our seafood and the pumpkin brule. Brackett's is obviously locally popular--every table was full. It seemed to be more... More

Had a great seafood dinner with a water view at this restaurant. Had the fresh salmon and it was perfectly prepared. The food was very good here, but the table cloth was dirty and the rest of the place a bit dingy, but did I mention how good the food was? It was wonderful, so I would overlook the need... More

The is a very popular place for dinner. The seafood-centric menu has similar entrees to other Rockport restaurants, the food is very good and the bar does a fair job with drinks. Why the slightly lower rating then? During our summer visits, we had reservations but had to wait a considerable time past our reservation. For one of these visits,... More

If you are an ocean view lover and enjoy fresh seafood, you cannot do better than Bracketts in Rockport. We visited twice in our four day stay and both times had a table right in front where the view is just breathtaking. Our lunch was wonderful, featuring house made clam chowder with a nice touch of crisp corn in it... More
