Generous portions of good food at reasonable prices - what more could you ask for? Lobster and fish at very good prices - nice atmosphere as well.

This place is a very chill place. They have live lobsters if you wanna buy some. And their food is delicious. But their customer service attracted me the most!! Keep it up!

This is definitely a no frills place located on Bear Skin Neck, but really worth the money. out back there are a few picnic tables so you may have to buddy up with other people to have a spot to sit and enjoy your seafood. The oysters are amazing, as is the smoked salmon bites and of course the lobsters!!!!... More

When Roy Moore's opens I know that summer has officially begun! Tiny shack, lots of sweet lobster, great oysters, and delicious clam chowder. Take out or carry your tray to their tiny back deck for some outdoor seating. Always a line but it moves along and anyway...it is worth the wait. They also have a good selection of fresh fish...

Nothing extra, nothing else needed. The food is excellent and the service is very personable. The chef in the back has the best recipe for all things seafood. I had lunch with my family and everyone had a great meal. I encourage everyone who visits this part of Mass to stop in for a bite. Lobster lobster lobster, yummy!

No one can cook a lobster like Kenny at Roy Moore's. They are always done to perfection. Any time I have company I run down there. His seafood is unbelievably fresh. I buy lobster meat by the pound to make salad. If desired you can eat out back on the deck.
