Location is perfection, right on the water with mostly outdoor seating. Prices are too high, but that is known when you go in as they post a menu outside and you're paying for ambiance as well as good food. Food was tasty, had a cup...More

The view at sunset was beautiful but we were disappointed with our dinner fare. The lobster was rubbery and quesadilla barely average. The meal was expensive and what we really paid for was the view. Would not return.

one star is giving this place too much credit. The manager/owner is mean mean mean to the staff and customers. Stay away. food is lousy and overpriced and the restroom is guarded. Not a friendly place and the bad karma shows up in the food.

Wonderful, gourmet restaurant on the tip of Bearskin Neck in Rockport. Ocean views are to die for. Food and service are good. Meals are a bit pricey but atmosphere, food and views are worth it.

As I remember all of the entrees feature seafood. I would venture a guess that they would make a wonderful salad if asked. They are very hospitable.
