Don't waste your time or money here. And what a profit they are making. A small lobster and choice of fries or cold slaw, that's it. Overrated and Irritable waitress to boot. Go to Gloucester to eat.

My family and I visited Rockport for a day and stopped at fish shack for lunch. My dad had the clam chowder and it was by far the BEST I have ever tasted. Next time we're in town we will definitely be back.

A whole boiled lobster with veg / salad &/or fries - what more could you want?! And service with more than a smile. No point going elsewhere - but beware queues, and 8pm closing!

Small restaurant in Rockport right on the harbor. Reasonable prices and great clam chowder. Lobster dishes are about $20--very tasty.

We went to Roy Moore's famous hole in the wall, but it was BYOB, so we decided to keep on... More

Like its flagship/parent restaurant (Roy Moore Lobster Company on Bearskin Neck), Roy Moore Fish Shack on 21 Dock Square, has the same quality and fresh lobsters as the original restaurant. The difference between the two restaurants? Ambiance. Roy Moore Fish Shack has a nicer sit down area with alcoholic drinks. It's a better choice for dinner. As somebody who has... More

a casual friendly restaurant serving FRESH seafood. Prices are reasonable and service was good. Up the neck is the fish market owned by the same people where you can ear "in the rough" outside. It doesn't get fresher than that.
