Sunny Saturday and the icing on the cake was fish sandwiches and lobster bisque in this little bistro. The French fries were good here too. Service was friendly and fast.Must try the clam chowder next time !

My wife and I visit Rockport often. The food here is the best. If you like clam chowder, you won't find it better anywhere else. The fried Haddock is out of this world. The service is exemplary. Shahrai is attentive, efficient and very pleasant. She...More

I ate here in December primarily because it is one of the few seafood spots open year-round. My fried haddock sandwich was good - better than average but the rest of my parties' food was sub-par. Staff were friendly and attentive. The view is nice...More

Bar is a nice addition to this family oriented restaurant. Mostly all on the menu is good. Generous portion of steamers for the price. Recommended by locals.

Local restaurant had transformed wasted open space to a fun casual bar with food. Lots of local support for a friendly warm place. Bartender is attentive, food good and nice place to watch a game or visit at the bar

This place is exactly what you should expect for a "fish shack." The food was good, but not fancy. Our server was great. We were there during off season but saw that it was well-patronized by the local crowd. Definitely a place we would go...More

Rockport used to be a dry town so there are not a lot of bars. This one is a winner-nothing fancy, just good, fresh, honest food and a friendly local vibe. Glasses of wine are reasonably priced (under $6). We had shrimp cocktail which was...More

The Fish Shack is a comfortable bar and restaurant with a view of Old Harbor. Food is tasty and fresh, drinks could be a bit more generous, but prices reflect that. Love the local feel and running into Rockport people here.

I'm not really sure. If you can eat steamed lobster or ask for the haddock prepared plain with some lemon juice. They always have a fresh vegetable and you can order salad as a second vegetable. I would think you could find... More
