I visit this great restaurant a lot! This is my favorite restaurant to pass a nice evening. I visit this spot at least once a month. The cooking is very good, the staff is professional and the prices are reasonable. I enjoy going in this place over a rich lunch.

I constantly come by grabbing some food here. I liked the swift service and well made food. 5 stars from me.

I really miss this place. It's an old school diner with a local Northshore twist. I can't wait until it's open again. The food is amazing and the people are exceptionally nice. I'm ready to order lobster eggs Benedict or a classic egg and sausage breakfast with sweet challah bread toast on the side.

My family and I used to eat here multiple times every summer when it was still run by the original owners. They always had the best eggs benedict and fresh baked Anadama bread. We tried it again after it was taken over by the new owners hoping that the magic would still be there. When we saw the menu still had both listed we were ecstatic. We ordered the traditional eggs benedict but were told the Anadama bread had not been delivered yet... okay not a big deal. When the eggs benedict came it didn't have any meat on it, no ham, not even any bacon. When asked the waitress "explained" to us that "traditional" eggs benedict did not have meat on it and that they did not even serve ham at the red skiff. She offered to put pulled pork on it lol. Everyone knows that traditional eggs benedict has ham/Canadian bacon on it. The hollandaise sauce was flavorless as well. Very disappointing. We came back three times during the week hoping to at least get some Anadama bread but were told each time that they were waiting for a delivery. The last few years we have went down the street to Nate's for breakfast instead. Bring back the old Red Skiff!

When they are good, they are extremely good. When they are a bit off, they are still good. When it is off season in Rockport and nothing else is open, they are the most amazing restaurant in the world.

This spot always delivers. They have great food for fair pricing, there are no long waits even when they are full.

I simply liked their dishes. I always get excellent service here. The place is well organised and the cashiers are always very welcoming. Would recommend to others.

Could not say enough good things about this adorable resteraunt. I went with a large group and they were able to accommodate us all. Customer service was excellent! Even with our large group they efficiencntly took our orders and got us our food very quickly. The food was absolutely delicious and a great price. Get the Pumpkin Muffin and/or the Breakfast Poutine, best breakfast I have had in quite a while!


Small, welcoming place to eat breakfast. Bella was our server and was friendly and attentive. We had eggs, bacon and home fries plus a Smoked Western omelette. It was an adequate western omelette. Seemed to have a lot of locals.

The Hash... It doesn't get any better than the Hash. Not too pricey. A lot of food for the money.

Had breakfast here for the first time on Monday ! Delicious ! They serve a great hash (salty) but delicious !

It pains me to write this because we've generally had good meals at the RS - but yesterday the service was so bad it's worth noting. Normal busy - but not insane Sunday - were seated relatively quickly but were then ignored for the rest of the visit. Party of 4 - our simple breakfast food came out in four very separate waves - all of which was after two groups (who were seated at the same time) had ordered eaten and were paying. We had to ask for coffee refills, cream, syrup and other items that would be normal no brainers for attentive waitstaff. No acknowledgement or apology offered. Food was fine - but experience was damaged by the poor service. We still tipped 20% and will come back - just hope to have a better experience next time.


We had breakfast - the locals highly recommended and they were not wrong. The selection was very good, it was all hand made, and the service FANTATSTIC!
