This restaurant was recommended by our motel. It was excellent. There was a bit of a wait but we visited with two young women and the time passed quickly. I had the steamers, which I love. But the serving was so huge I actually couldn't...More

Great place to grab a bite to eat in rockport. Waited about 20min (they were happy to serve us a beer while we waited), then sat right by the window overlooking the water. Reasonable prices, especially for the seafood. Friendly service, nice atmosphere.

I'm not really sure. If you can eat steamed lobster or ask for the haddock prepared plain with some lemon juice. They always have a fresh vegetable and you can order salad as a second vegetable. I would think you could find... More
