Went for Sunday brunch. Friendly and attentive staff. Complementary appetizers brought to table which were delicious. Ordered scallops with a hot and sweet sauce. Surprised and disappointed when it was presented more like a stew with not only the scallops but also the potatoes and vegetables in the sauce. Should have asked more questions. But am still planning to go... More

Can't beat it in Rockport. Good food, great view, excellent service. I don't know what else to day. Have I used up my minimum number of words?

This is the second time we have dined at My Place By The Sea ... the first being several years ago (maybe 8?). I think it has changed hands since then ... but either way this was a MUCH better experience. We were the only diners (Friday lunchtime), and so very definitely felt very special !! It was like our... More

Dropped in for Sunday Brunch. Welcomed like an old friend (it was our first visit) and shown to a table overlooking the ocean. The food was excellent and freshly cooked. The service was very personal. All together a great Sunday morning.

I had the lobster bisque and my husband the chefs starter platter. Both were outstanding and we should have stopped there. The generous bread basket and starter portions meant that we were too full to appreciate the main course. The drinks and meal were expensive and the upstairs heating lacked the atmosphere that we felt from downstairs when leaving.

"My Place By The Sea" has absolutely everything you come to Cape Ann for — and it's only an hour north of Boston & many of its suburbs. The restaurant is so near the gorgeous rocky coast of Rockport, MA that it's practically IN the water, at the very tip of Bearskin Neck — with all the granite and jetty,... More
