This restaurant has a very good view to the ocean and you can sit inside or outside and eat every kind of seafood that you like. Lobster rolls are very good with fries. You can bring your own drinks. Beautiful and very clean place.

Food was good no frills. Portions could have been better. Parking overflowed street. I would say views are worthy the trip.

Amazing food, lobster and chowder and finished it off with blueberry pie. Watched the sunset over the water during dinner. BYOB made it possible to enjoy a nice red wine for a romantic night. Outdoor seating was also available.

The spot for fresh fish and shellfish in Rockport. Small amount of "in the rough" seating on porch/deck in back. Excellent oysters and lobster rolls. Will steam lobsters to go.

The view is still wonderful, but the new owners have not been able to keep the same standard as the original owner, Myalisa Waring. On a couple of occasions this past summer, the clams were over fried, hard, small and tasteless. Maybe next season, the...More

We've eaten at many other lobster shacks in Maine that were better than The Lobster Pool. The lobster roll was good but not special. This meal was expensive. Fortunately we had a Groupon. The view from the restaurant was okay. Obviously this restaurant survives because...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
