I visit Rockport a lot and was working to get out of my rut of a few fav places - stumbled upon this place while there for a concert and found it to be very nice - lovely dining room with a terrific view of the harbor, friendly service, and the food was quite good. Service was pretty good considering the dining room had filled up after an early concert and everyone trooped in all at once. I had a grilled Caesar salad with chicken and my husband had a local crab 'pie' - not exactly a pie as it had no crust but he liked it. We'll be back.

Relaxing, pleasant setting with a view to the beach and water. Good food, fresh seafood, attentive service. We'd go back again.

I enjoyed our meal here. The food was simply prepared. I had a salad with grilled Salmon. Both were excellent. The service was pleasant and efficient. This is a family restaurant. If you have little kids, bring them. All ages are welcome. There were beautiful views of the ocean. Make a reservation and ask for a waterview table! The complimentary rolls were excellent. Nice, simple, family oriented place.

This was supposed to be a "date night" on our last night in Rockport. We have been here before and this was quite a different experience. Our reservation was for 6:30, we were seated at 7:05. Sat at the table for about 10 minutes before anyone appeared, then another 15 before the salad with the wrong dressing was served, then another 10 minutes until the bread appreared. Our entrees were good but not outstanding like we remembered. But the worst of all was the NOISE...it was so loud we could not even have a conversation. We even debated have our dinners packed up to take back to our hotel. Never again!

One of the nicest views from a table in Rockport or Gloucester. Varied, tasty menu, friendly! Our second meal here....we will be back very soon. So peaceful watching the early evening light while savoring a nice meal.
