I had the baked haddock dinner and my wife had the fish and chips (which was also haddock), and both were excellent.The deep fried fish and chips, though heavily breaded, did not taste greasy. A man we believe was the owner told us the haddock...More

This is an "in the rough" kind of restaurant. They have indoor seating but the outside is where it happens. Nice tables set amongst the grass at the edge of the ocean. If you are there for a sunset you have picked the perfect time....More

My title said it all. It has the finest sunsets! The children can run around, but you will pay for this. My suggestion is to go ahead with eyes wide open that the food is ok but the cost is high.

We have a tradition. Even before we go into the center of Rockport, we stop for our fried seafood fix at the Lobster Pool. In the past, we have ordered the fisherman's platter (haddock, scallops, shrimp and clams, with fries and onion rings), but it...More

Hi You should try calling. They are usually closed by now. (978) 546-7808. If you don't mind traveling to Newbury MA, Bob's Lobster has always been good. It does not have the view of the Lobster Pool but still a nice area to... More
