The fish shack restaurant has good food and is your best bet for dinner in Rockport, but you are better off going to the lobster shack down the neck

The food here was okay, but not what I expected. The squash which was a side dish was cold. The haddock chowder was awful. It was like eating warm milk with fish floating in it.

We had a yummy dinner at the Fish Shack. I enjoyed the lobster Mac and cheese. My mom loved the clam chowder. Family friendly place.
