We stopped for lunch at My Place by the Sea at the end of Bearskin Neck in beautiful Rockport (our first, but not our last visit there). We dined indoors on a spring day with a cool sea breeze, and could not have been happier with the spectacular view (even from inside) or the lunch that went with it. The... More

My Place By the Sea is a gem of a restaurant, at the ocean end of Rockport's galleries and shops. Food and drinks were as good as the astonishing views. This is a place for a special occasion but there are also affordable meals. Of course, if you can afford regular visits, you'll find yourself wanting to become a regular,... More

A very nice place for dinner, overlooking the ocean. A nicely decorated entry area (I like the collection of hats!), very good menu and great chef -- special thanks to him/her. Good selection of vine. The restaurant is located on Bearskin Neck, the oldest part of Rockport. Worth seeing!

We went for lunch today -- beautiful views over the water and the food was outstanding. I had the garden salad with 3 crostini that were topped with tuna salad, lobster salad and grilled shrimp. Really delicious! Clam chowder was also very good. This place can get pricey for dinner and it can be hard to get a reservation when... More

Went for Sunday brunch. Friendly and attentive staff. Complementary appetizers brought to table which were delicious. Ordered scallops with a hot and sweet sauce. Surprised and disappointed when it was presented more like a stew with not only the scallops but also the potatoes and vegetables in the sauce. Should have asked more questions. But am still planning to go... More

Can't beat it in Rockport. Good food, great view, excellent service. I don't know what else to day. Have I used up my minimum number of words?

This is the second time we have dined at My Place By The Sea ... the first being several years ago (maybe 8?). I think it has changed hands since then ... but either way this was a MUCH better experience. We were the only diners (Friday lunchtime), and so very definitely felt very special !! It was like our... More
