Someone recommended this place, and I could see why. My husband and I ate like champs. It's cozy, not meant to feed all the tourists and the town, but it's well worth the wait. We sat at the counter, coffee was strong, just the way...More

Being early risers we walked from our B&B, The Lantana House, and had no wait for a delicious breakfast with all locals. Really good coffee for starters. Eggs, bacon, and pancakes with the very special, real maple syrup (for an extra charge) started that day...More

Friendly staff with prompt service. Sort of a local breakfast spot. Great specials, blueberry pancakes and warm REAL maple syrup extra charge but worth it!). Server, Lysa, was excellent - made us feel at home and appreciated. Will definitely return to try the Benedict choices!

We ate at Red Skiff today in Rockport. The crab cakes were very good as was the scallop roll special. The scallops were quite tender. Seems to be more of a "local" than a tourist restaurant which was just what we wanted.

Gave this place another shot because of all the good reviews it's received. I went for lunch, and ordered the lobster roll with fries. It was good. The lobster was a little soggy, like it had been mixed with the mayo hours in advance or...More
