Order lobster. You get--a lobster. Looking for a table. You get pointed to the lobster traps on the dock. But it was FUN! This iconic place may be a hole in the wall, but it was our first destination in Rockport.

Every time we are in the area, Roy Moore is one of our favorite restaurants to have LOBSTER. They have never disappointed us. I can't speak for the rest of the menu but their lobsters are wonderful.

This is a first come first seated place, and if you are in a larger group, you might have to split up. The oysters and lobster were very nice, I didn´t particularly care for the clam chowder here. Everything is served in throw-away paper/cardbox and...More

We were there in May and it was aplenty. Like most said the best times are when the fishing is less risky for the fishermen to go out to sea.

Yes it is accessible by w/c. The shack is also, go around back and roll up on outside deck. Guys there are great. Enjoy, I'm jealous of your meal already.

I don't think they ship lobsters. Not sure but never seen nor heard of it being done there. Give them a call though.
