We used to eat there all the time when it was Hemmingway's! We didn't like the food after the new owners took over Hemmingway's and eating there! So when we heard new owners took it over and renamed it Allegro Bay, we gave it a try! We were very happy with the food and the service. We will go back again!

We ate lunch here based on a coupon provided by one of the local merchants. The restaurant has recently been opened under new ownership with this new name. The name on the door still shows Hemingways. It is on a side street so tourists could easily miss it. The locals we talked to did not have an opinion about it due to the recent change in ownership. Menu has Greek items along with a variety of other items. Had an unusual wrap sandwich. Both of us ordered a wrap thinking it would be a cold sandwich. It came to the table "hot" off a grill. The warmed version of chicken Caesar salad wrap was not too good. Their hot bread with cinnamon butter was wonderful. The shrimp cocktail was good, but the shrimp was warm in this appetizer. Very odd. Portions were very large for lunch items.
There is a great fish tank and we sat in front of it. This is a very nicely appointed restaurant.

Lunch at Allegro Bay was enhanced by our choice of a table by the fish tank where we enjoyed watching the antics of the mother fish protecting her babies. The food was very tasty, although it was a little more than what i normally spend on a lunch salad, I had enough to take home for dinner. The farmers salad was lovely and delicious. We also had a chicken entree stuffed with broccoli and accompanied by a tasty sauce. Chef makes his own salad dressings. Our server suggested the ranch. There is a nice bar and its in a lovely, quiet setting. Not waterfront, but after lunch or dinner, you can stroll downtown Rockport shops or the marina.

We ate here for lunch per recommendation from some locals, and were very pleased with our experience. The menu selection is great with plenty of variety. Everything that was ordered was excellent. I ordered the grilled chicken wrap, and I must say its one of the best I've ever had.
The ambiance is also very nice. Beautiful dark wood throughout as well as a nice aquarium. My kids were enthralled with the aquarium. The bar is also very beautifully done.
Overall it was a great experience. We will most definitely be returning.
