Went to Rockport for seafood. This restaurant does not disappoint. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. We went for 3 meals. Lobster, lobster rolls and fried shrimp. All perfect. Terrific seafood choices. Landlubber menu & choices for kids. Prices in line with quality. They do not take reservations...More

We've been to the Fish Shack three times this week. It's one of the few restaurants which is open past 5pm. If you're looking for fancy, go elsewhere. This restaurant has the basics. Lobster roll, with mayo or butter, clam chowder (excellent), lobster mac and...More

Ate there three times this week. All the fish and shellfish are great. Best on the menu is the baked Haddock. Also love the lobster, scallops, salmon, fried clams and steamers when they have them. Service is friendly and attentive even when they are busy.

Great steamers and mussels. Service could have been better, but supposedly the beginning of the summer season there.

My wife and I had two great craft beers and crab cakes with baked beans and coleslaw and a lobster roll that came with coleslaw. Both were wonderful. The crab cakes were almost all crabmeat!

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
