Decent cup of chowder and fried clams. Nothing to write home about and the prices are decent.
Guessing there are some better choices in the area.
Service is friendly and decent harbor views. Half order of the fried clams was more than sufficient .

We really enjoyed their ribs and salad.
Good service. Tasty food. Other dishes served are
seafood variety's but they have the best ribs on Rockport.

I love to have lunch here when I visit my Mom. I love the atmosphere and the food. And the warmth of greeting and how they treat my 87 year old Mama is heartwarming. It's not the place for high maintenance folks but if you like down to earth, that's been around for years this is the place.

The chowder was very good and so was the lobster bisque. We just wanted a little something for lunch so stopped in and it is a cute place. Love the decor and you can see out to one of the harbors. They have a special where you can get a cup of soup and 1/2 sandwich which was just the right amount. If you go down the pier right outside restaurant you get a good look at the #1 Motif (Google that) they even have a festival honoring it this weekend. (Probably 3rd weekend in May).

Clam chowder was a tasty starter.
The half portions of broiled haddock and broiled scallops were adequate to leave enough room to share a dessert.
The sides, jacket potatoes, zucchini and tomatoes and especially the pickled beets were excellent. The cranberry and rhubarb dessert was homemade and delicious.
The only minor criticism was the friendly waitress seemed too busy and missed our request for water and bread.
But the food far outweighed the service.
