Although the ambiance in the restaurant was not that nice,the view of the ocean made up for it. The food, although not what I would call " fine cooking", was very good. All in all , a very pleasant experience. Waitress was very nice.

The food is always good; I love the scallops, but I've never been disappointed with anything I've ordered. Service is friendly, and the views are great. It's nothing fancy, but down home good food and prices.

Bracketts Oceanview Restaurant is located right downtown Rockport with a beautiful view of the ocean. The menu is diversified. The spinach salad with the grilled shrimp is a good choice for lunch - light and fresh. The restaurant's decor is cheerful and bright, and very...More

I had stopped in personally the night before and made a reservation. Very odd they don't answer or have an answering machine.
