Dropped in for Sunday Brunch. Welcomed like an old friend (it was our first visit) and shown to a table overlooking the ocean. The food was excellent and freshly cooked. The service was very personal. All together a great Sunday morning.

I had the lobster bisque and my husband the chefs starter platter. Both were outstanding and we should have stopped there. The generous bread basket and starter portions meant that we were too full to appreciate the main course. The drinks and meal were expensive and the upstairs heating lacked the atmosphere that we felt from downstairs when leaving.

"My Place By The Sea" has absolutely everything you come to Cape Ann for — and it's only an hour north of Boston & many of its suburbs. The restaurant is so near the gorgeous rocky coast of Rockport, MA that it's practically IN the water, at the very tip of Bearskin Neck — with all the granite and jetty,... More

This restaurant was highly recommended to us! It was ok. View was great, food was fresh and well prepared, wine was nice! A tad bit expensive, but we knew that going in. Good atmosphere all around!

Our family of 14 had a wonderful dinner at a semi private table. The dishes were delicious, the atmosphere perfect, the server cordial. Some of us felt the time between the drinks were poured until the first appetizer arrived was a bit a stretched.

We arrived in Rockport, a beautiful seaside historic town late in the day only to find out that our hotel restaurant was closed. We were recommended to My Place and were extremely, pleasantly surprised. We were seated without a reservation and without our knowledge our server happened to be one of the owners and chef's Kathy. The chowder and seasonal... More
